Summer is officially upon us, which also equates to bathing suit season! Near us the UV rays are incredible, so we have to make sure we are all safe in the sun. One way I do this is by making sure my kids clothes and bathing suits have UV protection. For this reason, we turn to Snapper Rock! Snapper Rock is a UV protected swimwear line just for kids.
Snapper Rock’s UPF rating comes from fabric that they use in their designs. No chemicals or treatments are added to the fabric to provide the rating. What makes their garments UPF are due to the following:
1) Density of the weave or knit of the fabric – the denser the fabric the less UV it lets in.
2) The type of fibre – Nylon and elastane which our swimwear is made of disrupt alot of the UV light, whilst a fabric such as cotton doesn’t block very much
3) The darker the garment – a general rule is the darker the fabric the more UV is blocked, however don’t be afraid of choosing white rash tops – our white fabrics are dense enough to still block 98% of rays.
This summer, be sure to check out Snapper Rock swimwear for all your kids!
