Well strange things have happened to me in my life, but not many much stranger than THIS...But having surfed all over this world with my wife who also surfed by my side, I had the misfortune to have just been forced to have a Mastectomy after a tumor was discovered during the course of 3 OTHER Emergency surgeries that came out of nowhere in April of this year. As a MAN, it has been a shock that I just never expected. Not to mention my back looks like a carved up turkey carcass.... So I found myself wishing I could find a rash guard that fit loose and not body forming like I have worn for over 30 years under my surfing wetsuits. Because NOW, I needed it to cover up the horrific scars so I could still at least use my hot tub and swim when I am strong enough eventually without grossing out my own wife and others around me who would be very unprepared for seeing the scars left behind. Even having lost over 55 pounds in just a couple months, my conventional rash guards were still the "clingy" style. This is nicer for me NOW since it is more of a tee shirt style, loose fitting and better lends itself to not let the scars/deformities show through. I am not used to feeling "shame" or this level of embarrassment and find it highly traumatic to be honest.....

Maybe my need for this is unconventional for this but my gratitude for this product is anything but. I LOVE it, it fits a bit large and loose which is exactly what it was I was looking for. In all my life I never could have guess that I would EVER have THIS need for a product like this....But all I can say is an honest heartfelt thank you to Speedo for manufacturing it, even if MY use for it is not for the use as it was intended for.

I bought this shirt about a year ago, and only wear it when I'm at the beach or at the pool. Maybe a total of 15-20 times so far. Performs well, but the red stitching is coming out and I'll have to replace it soon because it looks bad. Otherwise, good design and performance.

My husband is not a huge guy and I was surprised when we followed the sizing chart and he was an X-Large. Needless to say we got the shirt and he was swimming in it (no pun intended :). That was when I read the tag on the shirt that said something about being a roomier rash guard so I guess this was on purpose but this was way more than just roomy. I returned it and we'll probably order this same shirt again but in a medium. Other than that it came on time and seemed like a really nice shirt. He just never got to use it.

I bought this rash shirt for my husband to snorkel in on our first-ever Caribbean cruise. I was afraid he wouldn't wear it but bought it anyway. He tried it on (he's 6'4") and liked the fit and said he'd wear it so he wouldn't get sunburned. We used blow-up snorkel vests over the rash shirts we had. We only snorkeled two times and that was just floating on the surface of the water, never down to coral etc. When I put this rash shirt in the laundry when we got home I noticed lots of tiny snags on the front and side where the tie of the snorkel vest was. This might happen with any rash shirt I guess. But when I went in his closet to take a photo of the snags, I noticed the hem was raveling. Not only that, I hadn't noticed it before but the hem was not even sewn correctly. But the shirt did look good on him and it shed water and didn't cling but for a second after he exited the water. Too bad it seems to be made cheaply. If only they could use that style and pattern for a better quality garment. I'll add the photos.

I was advised to buy a couple of rash guards when I recently started BJJ. I liked the price on these and that they came from a recognized company.

I selected the medium-size as this is a size of t-shirt that I commonly wear. Reviews stated that a significant amount of people found these shirts to fit a little loose and I would agree with that; a large t-shirt typically fits me like one of these medium rash guards. It's not a big deal though and the fit is acceptable to me.

For Ju Jitsu it works well under the gi, not being too hot and not getting clingy and uncomfortable when I sweat. It seems to dry fast and to not get too stinky either.

I'd recommend these for wear under a gi or other martial arts garb and for wearing alone for general workouts. Maybe order a size smaller than your t-shirt unless you like a looser fit.

The shirt is very comfortable to wear and has good UV blocking. I wear it to the beach and pool. I wear and XL and the size is good. I like the length of the shirt as it extends to the top of my thighs. Dries quickly.

A very nice shirt. Fabric and fit exactly as expected. However, the style pictured is not correct. The "black" color actually has vertical gray stripes (not red) and horizontal blue stripes (not gray). Good product just did not receive what is pictured thus two stars. I normally don't write reviews except in situations where I think it will help a future buyer.
