Swimsuits with Sleeves – SwimZip in “The Boston Globe”

Swimsuits with sleeves are one of the hottest trends in swimwear because they offer fantastic UV sun protection.  With the link between UV exposure and skin cancer, getting swimsuits with sleeves, like those from SwimZip, makes total sense!  This week, The Boston Globe ran a story about swimwear with sleeves (“What Do You Look for in a Swimsuit?  Sleeves.”) and made big mention of SwimZip’s fantastic line of kids swimwear with sleeves:

The rash guard is on the rise. Born of necessity, the protective surf shirts, worn in the water or out, are becoming the must-have summer accessory for adults and kids alike. …

Levine, a physician who does health care consulting, bought one rash guard style at Tommy Bahama, but found her favorite ones at Swimzip, an e-commerce website founded by Betsy Johnson, a skin cancer survivor. Levine said Swimzip is especially well-known for its children’s styles, but the adult ones are both flattering and well-priced.”

This picture from The Boston Globe (featuring four SwimZip swimsuits) is part of a story highlighting the importance of swimsuits with sleeves.

SwimZip rash guard swimsuits with long sleeves are perfect for a day at the beach or pool.  Sand and water make for particularly intense UV environments because the sun’s rays bounce off the beach and water.

SwimZip’s signature full length zipper on our UPF 50+ long sleeve rash guard swim shirts make them incredibly easy to put-on and take-off (which is not easy when the long sleeve rashguards get wet).

So, for swimsuits with sleeves (kids swimwear and adults), be sure to go to SwimZip and order a set for the whole family!

Melanoma Affects Young People Too.

The AAD says that melanoma is the most common cancer for young adults 25 to 29 years old, and the second most common for adolescents and young adults 15-29 years old.

It’s Easier Than Ever to Prevent Melanoma.

The single best way to prevent melanoma and other skin cancers is to limit exposure to the sun. But some people think that means giving up their favorite activities. Instead, here are a few simple tips to keep you active and healthy:

  • Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30, and reapply after swimming or strenuous activity.
  • Wear sunscreen every day – up to 80% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays can reach your skin even when it’s cloudy.
  • Seek shade when necessary.
  • Wear a sun hat or baseball hat to keep the sun off your face!
  • Wear sun protective clothing, like SwimZip UV Sun Protective Clothing.

Beach Cover Ups and Swimsuit Cover-Ups with UV UPF 50+ for Kids

Getting beach cover ups or swimsuit cover-ups with UPF 50+ sun protection is a great idea for young kids – and SwimZip has the best! If your kids are anything like ours, they are in and out of the water all day when we visit the beach or pool. Coverups are the perfect way to stay warm and cozy when out of the water. The lightweight cotton material is ideal for snuggling up and keeps the wind off.


One key feature that make SwimZip’s beach cover ups and swimsuit cover-ups the best beach accessory is that all of our coverups have UPF 50+ sun protection. The pool and beach are particularly intense UV environments, with UV rays bouncing off of the water and sand right back onto our kids! Tossing on one of our lightweight coverups means that they will be protected from 98% of the UVA and UVB rays – even if sunscreen has washed off. Please note that many cover-ups do NOT have sun protection!


Of course, all SwimZip coverups also come with our signature full length zipper (just like our award winning rashguard swim shirts) – which make them so easy to put on and take off! Kids love being able to zip in and out of these cotton robes as they go in and out of the water.

** Parents … remember playing around the water and sand creates a particularly intense UV environment (the sun’s rays bounce off of the water and sand), so be sure to choose a swimsuit cover up that offers UPF 50+ protection. Many of bathing suit cover ups lack this important additional sun protection feature. Remember that UV rays can penetrate clothing. All SwimZip swimsuit cover-ups and beach cover ups come with UPF 50+ sun protection.
