What is UPF?
UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor. Ultraviolet light is the sun’s rays and when we’re exposed to these over prolonged periods of time, your skin will burn. One of the main benefits of a sun safe or rash guard top is protection from this ultraviolet light. A Nip Tuck Swim sun safe top will provide protection from these harmful UV rays directly from the sun or any reflected UV light that bounces off the water.
Nip Tuck Swim is an Australian women’s swimwear brand that is all about making life count, being able to enjoy the summer and creating memories that will last forever.
We offer a wide range of swimwear styles with tummy control features for women who would like a bit of extra swimwear confidence, additional support and body sculpting effects all at an affordable price.
This is the third time I’ve bought from Nip Tuck and I am never disappointed. Not only are they affordable but the quality and fit are amazing. For the first time in a long time I am loving myself in swimwear! ***** Tamara R.
What Does a Rash Guard do?
A rash guard or sun safe swimwear is designed to wear over your swimsuit for when you are in prolonged exposure to the sun or for extra comfort during water sport and outdoor activities. A sun safe top is designed to protect your skin against rashes, chafing and from being sunburnt.
When Should You Wear a Sun Safe Top?

Why Do Women Wear Rash Guards?
Women wear rash guards for a multitude of different reasons. A sun safe top or women’s sun safe swimwear has a variety of uses. Rash guards were initially designed to prevent the wearer from getting rashes and irritations from prolonged water activities. But now the most common use is for sun protection. We are all aware of the damaging effects of the sun and harmful UV rays. Sun safe swimwear will add extra protection for the wearer and prevent sun burn which over time can lead to skin that is sun damaged or to developing skin cancer. Other uses for a sun safe top are for extra protection and support over your swimwear and may also be used as a cover up.
Do You Wear Sunscreen Under a Sun Safe Top?
Women’s sun safe swimwear is designed so that you don’t need to apply sunscreen under it. However, a sun top is only as good as the age and condition that it is in. At Nip Tuck Swim we highly recommend wearing sunscreen under your rash guard top if you are planning to spend all day in intense sun as an extra precaution. As an Australian swimwear company, we understand the importance of skin protection. Sun safe swim tops are not to be used as a replacement for sunscreen lotion, but the two preventatives worn together will have an increased protection against harmful UV rays. It’s also important to note that a rash guard is only as good as the condition it is in, like all other swimwear a sun safe top will deteriorate over time if not cared for correctly. It is the elastane fibres in sun safe swimwear that will gradually break down due to sun, sand and environmental exposure. A rash guard that is deteriorating will stretch out of shape and become saggy and then the UV light will be able to penetrate through the fibres. To prolong the live of your sun safe swimwear – please read our blog on how to care for your swimsuit. If you have very sensitive skin, we highly recommend keeping your sun safe tops new and up to date regularly.
Do Women’s Sun Tops Have Built in Bras?
In our sun safe collection of swim styles at Nip Tuck Swim we have a variety of differing sun safe options to suit every woman’s needs. We have a sunsuit style, ‘Una’ which has all the support of a multifit cup tummy control one piece swimsuit including a built-in shelf bra and soft cups but with extra coverage for sun protection.
Most of Nip Tuck Swim’s sun safe tops are designed to wear over your swimsuit. Our long sleeve sun top and our mid sleeve length tops all come with a full front zipper for ease of wear. Our sun tops can be worn done up for the most amount of UV protection or undone like a shirt. A zip through sun safe top can be put on and taken off as required when worn over a swimsuit.
