So about the same as a t-shirt.
Like I said, it is about comfort nothing else.
Yes, I am smarter than you are.

With the added benefit that rashguards don't get tangled on my feet and cause me to tear clothing to shreds out of annoyance.

And here I thought wearing rashguards were just for looking dead schexy!

Does anyone have any recommendations for rash guards for women that are tall & thin?
Can any 5'9-10 women on the site with long arms please chime in?

Under Armour Heat Girls LS
Has some LS rash guards for around $30.
Not all surf rash guards are for warmth. Xcel makes quality girls sizes for around the same price.
Even Under Armour has "heat" and "cold" lines.
Many quality rash guards (The UA ones above for example) are impregnated with triclosan or similar antimicrobial additives, so there is perhaps a small benefit there.
They are far superior to a tshirt in wicking and abrasion resistance.
Some offer compression which is often considered a benefit to females, as mentioned above.
Compression wear can also reduce fatigue.
So yeah, not like a t-shirt at all...
