Women's Rashies

View our range of womens rashies. Made with UPF 50+ and chlorine-resistant material.

Whether you're looking for extra sun protection on the beach, on a surfboard, or even just lazing by the poolside, our womens rashies are an absolute essential for your next summer.

Available in both long and short sleeves, our womens rashies have a flattering feminine cut, body length, and high neckline for the best sun protection on the market. Paired with our swim shorts, a rash vest can provide extra protection from the sun's harmful rays (even more so than sunscreen alone).

The difference between our 4 STAR and 5 STAR rashies

Our range of women's rashies are crafted to offer the best in comfort and sun protection, and are available in two distinct types.

On one hand, our 4-STAR fabric, which is a blend of nylon and spandex, offers incredible flexibility and comfort. This material is ideal for those who value stretch and ease of movement, as it ensures a snug yet comfortable fit that moves with you. It's perfect for a variety of water-based activities, from casual swimming to more active pursuits such as surfing or beach volleyball.

On the other hand, our 5-STAR womens rashies are made from a specially designed PBT polyester fabric that is both chlorine resistant and boasts a UPF50+ rating. This makes it an exceptional choice for regular swimmers, particularly those who frequent chlorine pools, as this fabric's resilience against chlorine helps maintain the rashie's integrity and colour vibrancy over time. While offering slightly less stretch than our 4-STAR rashies, it compensates with extra durability, which makes it a top choice for both casual and frequent swimmers who prioritise longevity in their swimwear.


How to care for your Babes in the Shade rashie

Caring for our 4-STAR (nylon/spandex) and 5-STAR (polyester) rashies is a breeze, and is how you can ensure they stay vibrant and functional for as long as possible. Simply rinse in cold water after each use and dry flat in the shade; avoid ironing or using bleach to maintain the integrity of the fabric. For the 5-STAR polyester rashies, their chlorine-resistant quality makes them especially durable for frequent swimmers, requiring just a gentle machine wash to keep them looking great.


We stock great colours and stunning designs to make you POP!

Along with high quality, chlorine resistant fabric, we also offer a huge range of colours and designs to suit all personalities and senses of style.
