""Really great swimwear and fantastic service. Ordered the 3 piece Hamilton Island set, fit really well and sits nicely during swimming. High waisted bottoms are great and don't roll down. The rashie in built "bra" is firm enough to wear by itself.
Emily's customer service and friendliness is 2nd to none. Could not fault her at all. So impressed. Definitely will be back to support this small business." - Melanie N-R

Our beautiful new womens long-sleeved rash guard top with shelf bra is designed for ladies who prefer the option of wearing a separates set, rather than a one-piece swimsuit.

Designed to be worn with our high-waisted bikini bottom in the same print. 

This rash guard top:

  • provides full-coverage across the back, chest and arms
  • is double-lined front & back for extra protection against harmful UV rays
  • has an in-built shelf bra with removable padding
  • is made of a quality high-GSM polyester-blend fabric 
  • will hold its colour and will not fade

Designed to be worn alone, without the need for a bikini top underneath.

For those who do prefer to wear a rash top over a bikini, this top looks great with our tie-back bikini top.

Feedback from other women is that these swimsuits run: on the small side 

These beautiful rash tops are generally true to size, though some people have found that they run a bit small (^particularly in sizes 2XL & 3XL) - we recommend sizing up, especially if:

1) you are between sizes
2) you are taller than average or longer in the body
3) your bust size is large in comparison to your frame

  • XS equivalent to AU size 4-6, US size 2, European size 32, UK size 4
  • S equivalent to AU size 6-8, US size 4, European size 34, UK size 6
  • M equivalent to AU size 8-10, US size 6, European size 36, UK size 8
  • L equivalent to AU size 10-12, US size 8, European size 38, UK size 10
  • XL equivalent to AU size 12-14, US size 10, European size 40, UK size 12
  • 2XL equivalent to AU size 14-16, US size 12, European size 42, UK size 14^
  • 3XL equivalent to AU size 16, US size 14, European size 44, UK size 16^

(Note: there is approx 2cm difference between 2XL & 3XL - we will run this style again in future but will adjust sizing next time, so that 3XL will be a true size 18. Apologies for the inconvenience, we live & learn ourselves with every new style we release & always strive to improve)

    I wore this long sleeve rash guard top on a recent trip to Great Keppel Island which involved boating, swimming and snorkelling for the day. The top kept me totally sun safe, a great and comfortable fit excellent quality. It was wonderful to go out for the day with complete confidence that there would be no painful sunburn to deal with at the end of the day. Thank you so much!

    Good fit and comfortable

    Looks great and the XL 12-14 fit unlike the capped sleeve one piece which I am having to exch ange.


    I was so excited to receive my Tribe Tropical order, which arrived promptly on my doorstep! The women's rash vest is excellent quality, made from durable material with plenty of support in the bust area. It is flattering and compliments my lumps and bumps! The Hamilton Island print is just gorgeous, so I'm glad I ordered some matching swimmers for my daughter and boardshorts for my other half. One happy customer!

    Loved it!

    I bought the whole Hamilton Islsnd set and love it. I took the shelf bra out of the rash top as I wear it over the bikini top. Did a family holiday in Fiji with it - comfortable for all day wear and dries really quickly. Thankyou!

    Affordable swimwear

    Lovely print ,shelf bra works well Gives great protection

    My kids wore these swimmers for over 2 years. Not one issue with them, they still have a good year or two in them as well so last 3-4 years. We've had no fade or stretch, no pulling or pilling. Have handed down to friends children as my children outgrew them. Love them so much.

    I am really impressed with the level of support the ladies swimsuit provides, even for a larger cup size, which is so hard to find.

    Fantastic to wear for any water activity. I love the sun protection and comfort of the swimsuit while surfing, paddleboarding or just chilling at the beach.
    — Amy M.
    Tribe Tropical swimwear is by far the best designed and quality in Australia. The thought process that has gone into these designs, made for comfort, quality and being so sunsafe is a stand out. Each time my daughter wears these they wash up like brand new.

    Hi! I’m Emily, mother of 3 little girls and founder of Tribe Tropical. 

    Growing up I used to dread beach days!
    As a red-head with fair skin, growing up in the tropics, I either had to risk being teased by other kids for covering up in a daggy old t-shirt, or end the day sunburnt & in pain. 

    Having since suffered with countless skin cancer treatments (and further to the loss of my grandfather due to melanoma), I understand the importance of sun protection - I started Tribe Tropical with a desire to protect my family and yours in beautiful, high-quality sun-protective swimwear that people would feel good in & enjoy wearing. 

    No-one should dread a beach day! I hope to help you to make them fun & burn-free also.
