Sun burns are literally burned skin and it will hurt just as much as any other burn would hurt.

Wearing a shirt in the sun usually means the shirt will get hot and any kind of burn will be very temperature sensitive.

Even if you’re wearing a shirt, some UV rays can still penetrate through the fabric and reach your skin. While clothing can provide some protection against sunburn, it’s not always enough to prevent all UV radiation from reaching the skin, especially if the fabric is thin or light-colored.
