Looking for a womens rash vest plus size? Then look no further than Curvy Swimwear. Curvy Swimwear are the specialists in plus size swimwear. Their designers know their customers and design with them in mind, making sure that their rash vests are easy to put on and are long in the body and arms.

Rashies are both practical and stylish. Wear them to cover up or to add an additional styling element to your swim outfit. Just like a jacket transforms an outfit, so to does a stylish rash vest. Our rashies are available in prints and plains so you can create a swim outfit to suit your personal taste and practical needs.

Not only do they look great, but rash vests work to regulate your body temperature especially if you are out in the water for a long period of time. They offer great sun protection if you are out kayaking or stand up paddle boarding and are easy to take on and off depending on your activity or time of the day.

We love to keep one on hand in our beach bag for when the midday sun gets a little too hot. Our range of rash vests are available in long and short sleeves depending on your preference.

Chlorine Resistant Rash Vests

When you are looking for a plus size rashie, are you looking for the beach or for aqua aerobics or a public pool? This is important as you want your rash vest to last. If you are using it for a public pool then you will most definitely need a chlorine resistant fabric that is made from 100% polyester. This fabric ensures a perfect fit over time and is UPF 50+, breathable, fast drying and ideal for competition swimwear.

Our chlorine resistant rash vests are available with long sleeves in both navy and black. Wear them with a matching block colour or with a swimsuit from one of our chlorine resistant print collections. These rash vests will last three times as long as regular swimwear fabric and will be an essential summer basic for years to come.

Stylish Women’s Rash Vests

If you are needing a rash vest for your next holiday or to wear to the beach, then plus size swim rashies are also available in normal lycra. Choose from a large variety of plain colours or from our range of fantastic prints in florals, bohemian prints, and geometrical prints.

Our Diamond Geo print rash vest has the print in the middle while the arms and the back are in plain black. The bright bold colours in this print make it perfect to go back with any plain colour swimsuits you already have in your wardrobe. A full-length zip at the front makes it so easy to get on and off. These womens rashie plus size tops are light to wear but keep you safe from the harmful rays of the sun.

Our full print rash vests are available in our best selling patterns and look incredible worn back with a matching swimsuit or plain block colour. Try Hawaii Blue or Bohemian Sunset for a gorgeous summer look.

Think of your rash vest as an essential fashion item in your summer swim wardrobe not just to have on hand when you need extra coverage from the sun. Choose a print or block colour that will work back with the swimsuits you have or treat yourself to a couple of different rashies to complete your summer look. Just like your jackets in winter, a rash vest will inject a bit of extra style to your swim outfit.

Full Length Rash Vests

Our other great rash vest style is our long length adjustable side tie style. You can adjust the length of this rashie by simply undoing the side ties, or to make it shorter pull the side ties in. Once adjusted all the way down it is long enough to cover your bottom.

This is available in our Raj black and white print and is trimmed with a matching black and white striped pattern. If you are after a womens rash vest size 18 I would recommend this great style.

The full-length rash vest is perfect for a modest swimwear look. Pair it with our ¾ swim pant, or full-length gym/swim leggings to create a stylish full coverage swim outfit to keep you covered and fully protected from the sun. Alternatively, make it look like a long sleeve swim dress by wearing it with your favourite bikini bottom style. The options are endless with this unique style of rashie.

Long Sleeved One Pieces

If you're not keen on a separate swim item for your sun protection, try an all-in-one option. Long sleeved one piece swimsuits are also available if you like to just throw on one item that ticks all of your swimwear needs.

These swimsuits are great to wear for when you want to be active in the water and stay protected from the sun. Featuring similar design elements to our rash vests, these swimsuits won't move around when you're swimming laps, surfing, diving or playing in the water. Even the biggest, wildest waves are no match for our long sleeve one pieces.

Shop these swimsuits in classic black or try one of our gorgeous prints. The vibrant Diamond Geo will have you feeling extra sporty, while our monochromatic Raj and super sexy Turquoise Snake will show off your curves with elegance and sophistication.
