Frequently Asked Questions about the O’Neill Men’s Basic Skins Short Sleeve
How is the sizing?
The O’Neill Men’s Basic Skins Short Sleeve is a slim fit, however, not a tight or snug fit. That means it will feel like a normal t-shirt. It can help to buy one size up to make sure you don’t feel too compressed from it.
On the other hand, if you prefer a snug fit and are on the larger side, the sizing chart is accurate.
Do the print logos come off after some time?
The entire rash guard and all prints and logos are very well made. Even after using mine for over a year, it showed no signs of tear and wear.
Can it be worn as a woman’s shirt?
Yes, I know some women buy the men’s version to have a looser fit and it works for them.
Does it have a board short connector loop?
Nope, it does not.
Can I machine wash it?
Yes, it can be washed in machines and even be put in the dryer. However, there are some reports of crippling after doing so, which is why some people prefer to hand wash it.
Is it see-through?
The dark versions are not see-through at all. The white one is a little more see-through, especially when exposed to direct sunlight.
