“To wear, or not to wear bikinis” would probably be one of the hardest questions which troubles your mind when going to the beach for your summer holiday. While most women would think of wearing either one-pieced swimming suits or bikinis, there is an up-and-coming type of swimming suit that grabbed away Korean women’s and even men’s hearts – rash guard.

「穿不穿比基尼」可能是夏天假期去海灘玩的時候最困擾你的一個難題。大多數女性會考慮穿連身泳衣比基尼,但現在一種新興起的泳裝類型得到了韓國女人甚至男人的心——rash guard(水上運動服)。

Rash Guard was originally popular among those who enjoy extreme water sports, such as scuba diving, windsurfing or kayaking. Also known as rash vest, it is an elastic shirt made of flexible materials such as spandex or polyester that stretches when it’s worn. If you watched the movie Captain America, you can think of the elastic suit the hero wears in a swimming version. Yes, rash guards are generally worn more by men than women.

這種水上運動服最初是進行水上極限運動例如潛水、衝浪或划艇人士的普遍穿著。作為水上運動背心,它由彈性物料例如spandex或polyester製成。如果你看過電影《Captain America》,你可將他身穿的彈性緊身衣理解為泳裝版本。沒錯,這種水上運動服基本上男士穿得比較多。

Rash guard has many advantages other than its stylish look or fashionable design. As it is invented for sports experts, rash guard has numerous practical functions. Firstly, rash guard is effective for the regulation of body temperature as it controls both cooling and heating. As for safety, it protects skin against scratch and other injuries including sun burns. Also, as it covers the whole body, you don’t have to worry about bra pads under the swimming suit falling off in case you put in extra pads. While it hides out the unwanted parts of the body such as love handles, it nicely highlights your curves from the breast to waist.
