Swimsuits and Accessories With SPF — So Your Kids Never Go Out in the Sun Unprotected
When shopping for new swimsuits for your little ones, there's more to think about than just an adorable print — swimsuits now come with added UPF protection! If you're new to the world of UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) ratings, here's what you need to know. Think about it the way you would for your skin; it's essentially an SPF rating for clothing. The ratings range from 15 all the way up to 50+, and they indicate how effective the clothing will be toward protecting against harmful UVA and UVB rays. Even with applying sunscreen on your child, skin can still end up getting exposed, so a swimsuit or rash guard with UPF can keep a lot from passing through the fabric. Here are our top picks for the season — all from Amazon.
