Surfers figured out years ago that they needed to cover up their arms to protect themselves from the abrasions and rashes a surfboard can cause. These long-sleeve swimsuits are known as rash guards.
Sporty style is a huge trend right now, and has made its way to swimwear. As a result, long-sleeved swimsuits are a hot commodity this summer for fashionable purposes, and not necessarily for practical use.
What's cool about long-sleeve swimsuits is the fact that they are different. Sure, women's swimwear has it's fair share of trends - sequins, ruffles, and color-blocking - but a significant change in its shape is really unique. Wearing a long-sleeve swimsuit is bold. We can't help but love the style, despite the funky tan lines it would cause.
