    I have 3 rashguards, and I dont intend to spend extra on compression shirts. I'll be running a marathon in 4 months, and I've googled about this. I didnt get any clear answer, as some sites suggest it's okay since it's skin tight, while some say it's not okay, because it will constantly rub on your skin, which will cause chaffing.

    So is it a good idea to wear a rashguard if I'll be running a marathon?

    I'd just wear it on your training runs and see how it goes, probably if you just stick some tape over your nipples or some vaseline on it beforehand etc you'd be fine.

    He's a guy. He doesn't have nipples.

    Or just cut nipple holes in your rashie. No chaffing guaranteed.
