It's always best to dress modestly according to Thai expectations when visiting a temple. Females can pack a sarong to put over shorts. Some temples have items available to purchase or borrow. It's considered rude in Thailand to have bare arms even outside the temples. I wouldn't wear any tops that don't at least have a cap sleeve or short sleeve. Thai people are so kind they may not say anything to you, but if you are showing your shoulders, belly, or lots of leg (outside of the beach area) it truly is offensive.
