Really wanted a rashguard with long sleeves as I'm delving into no gi more nowadays (though I'm really a gi girl at heart, haha). I usually get other brands, but saw a sponsored athlete post a photo on a women's grappling social media group page, and loved the look. The only thing I hesitated on was the sizing, as per the size chart, I would be a large--but when I emailed the company, they thought maybe small or medium based on my height and weight (5' 2" and 123-125 lbs). I private messaged the athlete who posted on Facebook and she thought maybe a small would work (but not if I was large-chested--not an issue for me). I am happy I went with the small. I'm short, so the sleeves are a bit long--might have been nice to have a 3/4 fit sleeve? Otherwise, it's a bit loose around the armpits as well (never an issue for me, especially as I have broad shoulders). I usually wear a small (or sometimes a tight-fitting medium) women's rashguard in other brands, so I thought the size chart putting me at a large was inaccurate and a bit tough to use, since the instructions for measuring don't match other brands. Just a thought. Still love the look though!
Love the fit and quality of material. Fits the way I need it to without pinching anywhere or riding up. And looks rad on top of all that!

The material that this rash guard is made from feels really nice! However, I only wear it for gi training due to the lack of rubber grip at the bottom. I like it and I’m going to use it anyway. I (5’10”; 150 lbs) purchased a large and it fits snug around the waist and hips but has plenty of space for my shoulders. It’s a tiny bit short in the sleeves but that’s probably because I’m taller than average.
Fits like a glove. Great for training!
