Ever struggled to get a rash guard on your little one? I sure have! They are great for sun protection, but such a pain to get on and off. Well, there is a solution. SwimZip’s make UV protection a zip! Created by Betsy Johnson, SwimZip’s are swim shirts with a zipper in front. Great idea…right? The zipper makes it so easy, there’s no more struggling to get them on and off.
I received the Caribbean Dolphin SwimZip for my little girl, and we got to try it out this past weekend. We’re out in the sun a lot, and she normally just wears a swim suit. Of course, I do lather her up in sunscreen as well, but I have got to say, I LOVE the extra protection of this swim shirt! It can be hard to get my daughter to stay still long enough to lather her up with sunscreen, so with the extra coverage of the SwimZip, it is so much easier as more of her body is already covered. SwimZip’s offer UPF 50+ protection and blocks 99% of UVA and UVB rays which is awesome! They also seem to be very comfortable, and are very cute and stylish. My daughter didn’t mind leaving hers on at all, and getting it on and off was a breeze….so fast and easy!
Right now SwimZip’s come in two choices, the pink and white “Caribbean Dolphin” features dolphins on the front, and the blue “South Seas Turtle” features turtles. Be on the lookout for new designs which may be out by this summer! I’ve included a picture of one of the new designs below. I Love the ruffles!
I highly recommend SwimZip’s for all children! It’s so important to protect them from the harmful UV rays, and sun protection couldn’t be any easier than this! Check out SwimZip’s website to place an order. You can also find SwimZip on Twitter and Facebook.
