A few years back I noticed that I had a ring of hives on my chest that wasn't going away. I went to my Dr who referred me to a dermatologist who told me that they are granuloma annulare. Basically it is a mostly benign autoimmune skin issue that acts up whenever I get stressed or go out in the sun. At first it was just on my upper chest/neck, but the past few years it has grown worse and now it is spreading out to my arms and back and every time I go into the sun it just gets worse.
( Cut for picture of granuloma annulare so you can see what I meanCollapse )
Which brings me to my question. Anyone have recs for light weight long sleeve shirts to wear for layering under regular tees to protect my skin from the sun? I live in Arizona so I need light weight fabrics that aren't going to make me sweat too badly or trap the heat in. I'd love something with the weight of Old Navy's heathered tees, and if it comes in more than black and white that would be a huge bonus.
For the record I'm a 20/22-ish on top, altho I do fit into the Old Navy XXLs pretty easily in their straight size line.
