♻️ Cropped Rash Guard | Whale Shark
Our cropped rash guard is a breezy, relaxed alternative to our original dive rash guard with compression. Featuring a variation of the same beautiful whale shark pattern, this stylish rendition is sure to become a standout within your swim & divewear collection.
Designed with lightweight, ultra-flex, UPF 50+ fabric, and long raglan sleeves, this rashie provides optimal protection in both the sun and waves, while delivering a flattering fit.
SIZING: True to Size. Take your normal size, or size up if between sizing.
FIT: Shortened crop top length, with comfortable midriff band exposing the waist. Close-fitting, yet extremely stretchy. Item may appear small in-person, but the fabric has ample stretch to accommodate once on.
PHOTOS 2-5: Gabriella is 5'9" & wearing Size Large.
FABRIC DISCLAIMER: Due to the soft nature of this fabric, we’ve found it can become prone to snagging. We recommend avoiding contact with rough surfaces (concrete, velcro, etc.). And while great for everyday wear, yoga, the beach, & even diving (snorkeling, freediving) - if worn scuba diving directly against a rougher BCD, you may notice damage from the excessive rubbing. We would advise testing a small, discreet area of fabric against your gear first, prior to wearing.
COLOR DISCLAIMER: Please note this cropped style is comprised of a different fabric than the other styles within the Whale Shark collection. Due to the difference in content, you may notice slight color variation if matching this rash guard back to another style within the collection.
