She {hearts} SwimZip

Sun protection is super important to me, especially when it comes to my kids. My kids have acquired my exceptional paleness (you’re welcome, my dears) so it’s always a long, dramatic process to get them sunscreened up in the summertime. Sunburns and the potential long-term effects of too much sun exposure are painful, scary, and issues that should not be taken lightly.

SwimZip is a line of fashionable kids swimwear whose shirts zip up the front, making UV protection a “zip!” Their adorable SPF 50+ line keeps kids skin sun-safe and reduces the need for lots of chemical-laden sunscreen on their delicate, often sensitive skin. And, as every parent knows, it’s usually not a fun time having to wrangle a wriggling two year old and lather them up every few hours while they are having fun in the sun. Each SwimZip piece is made of quality stretch lycra/nylon, which blocks 99% of UVA and UVB rays and is chlorine resistant. This tagless line’s key feature is the full length front zipper, which makes for easy on, easy off (especially when wet!).

Betsy, the founder of SwimZip, was diagnosed with skin cancer at just 26 years old. She wanted to take her scary and traumatic experience and bring something good of it, and she saw it as a “chance to help others avoid my fate – and maybe even save lives.” Betsy says, “With the conviction that comes from knowing without a doubt that you are doing something right, I dove headfirst into the world of UPF sun protective clothing … and thus was born SwimZip.”

Betsy graciously sent me the Caribbean Dolphin front zip rash guard shirt for my oldest daughter to try out when we went on our beach vacation this past week. I love how the shirt opens and zips up the front of the body, eliminating the hassle of trying to fit a big-kid head through the usually small head hole of normal rash guard shirts. The material is light and comfortable, and kept my daughter cool yet protected those delicate shoulders with an SPF of 50+. Plus, how bright and fun is the design? And the hot pink definitely pleased my girly-girl.

The SwimZip sets are ADORABLE and so unique. My favorites are Grey Grey Go Away! and Ruffle Me Pretty.
