The Carolina Rashguard = An amazing piece!!!

I am taking swimming class at West Valley College in Saratoga, CA, and I am loving The Carolina Rashguard. The garment moves fluidly in the water with minimum drag, and it provides excellent sun protection including the neck. I haven't done very many open water swims this season but this garment is going to be an excellent addition underneath my wetsuit, and it will help warm the small of my back when I first enter the cold water at Cowell Beach in Santa Cruz. My sister-in-law sent me a wonderful gift!!!

Ready for the water!

I'm always on the lookout for clothing options that provide sun protection to use by the pool. But not every product that promises sun protection delivers... From the first moment I saw the LoPo rashguard, I loved it. Beautiful design, flattering for different body types, premium material and even storage! Plus, it's so comfortable to wear. Unbelievably, there's more. With anything I buy, it's important to me that the company and the product have sustainability in mind. This is made from recycled plastic bottles?? I love everything about this rashguard!
