UPF Sun Protection Swimwear for Kids a Must Have in the Summer Sun

Snapper Rock Kids UV Swimwear - great looking and ready for fun!

Summertime + kids = FUN IN THE SUN!  The sun is wonderful; it makes all the summer favorites possible, like swimming, sprinklers and beach time!  But, the sun needs to be treated with respect: too much sun means a painful sunburn and potential sun damage; not something any kid (or parent) wants to deal with when there’s so much fun to be had!

To keep those kids protected, invest in high quality UPF sun protection swimwear.  We have some fantastic options from Snapper Rock.  These swimsuits are made of durable, yet lightweight and breathable fabrics.  The fabrics are rated UPF 50+, meaning they block 98% of the suns’ harmful rays.   

For maximum protection, select a rash top.  Also known as a swim shirt or rash guard, a rash top covers the shoulders and upper torso, shielding those vulnerable areas from the sun.  And, last but not least, these suits are CUTE!  Parents and kids alike will be drawn to the great colors and fun designs.  Here are a couple ideas to get you started…


Girls Sun Protection Swimwear by Snapper Rock

Snapper Rock Garden Flower Girls Swimwear Collection

The Garden Flower collection is hardworking AND adorable.  The top and bottom of the tankini are sprinkled with colorful flowers and embellished with an aqua and white stripe.  It’s feminine and ready for active play.   

For extra sun protection, add a rash top.  Both the long sleeve and short sleeve version of the aqua rash top will guard her shoulders, chest and arms from the sun, while feeling comfortable and looking great.  

Don’t forget about baby!  Included in the Garden Flower collection is a one piece sunsuit, sized for babies and toddlers.  In the same whimsical floral pattern as big sister’s, this one piece swimsuit is ridiculously cute.  Short sleeves protect baby’s shoulders, and a zip at the front means it will be easy to get on and off.

Here’s a sporty look for girls: pair some girls boardie shorts in raspberry with a coordinating rash top.  

The boardies have an aloha-inspired hibiscus pattern in light pink and raspberry.  The rash top is a yummy raspberry color, and is available in both short and long sleeve lengths.   

This combo provides a lot of sun protection, and is really comfortable; just right for the active kid.  Your girl will look super cute and be ready for some serious play!

Snapper Rock Gekko Board Shorts and Long Sleeved Rash Guard
Boys Swimwear by Snapper Rock: Gekko Board Shorts + Long Sleeved Rash Top

For the boy, there’s nothing simpler than throwing on a fun pair of board shorts and a fabulous rash top.  Check out these Gecko Board Shorts: the print is so fun, any critter lover will be all in.  The navy, aqua and green color combo screams island… summertime… beach… and coordinates perfectly with a navy rash top.  

These rash tops are great looking and hard working.  The navy fabric is offset with stitching in contrasting white.  They fit really well, so comfortably that your boy’s focus will stay where it’s needed: diving in the pool, running on the beach, throwing the Frisbee, etc.


White Rash Guard and Royal Red Board Shorts; Boys Swimwear by Snapper Rock
Royal Red Board Shorts + White Rash Top | Snapper Rock Boys Swimwear

The budding surfer boy needs the Royal Red Island board shorts.  The bold, tropical print in red, turquoise and royal blue is all about “surf’s up, dude”!  These, like all the board shorts, have a soft elastic waistband with a working drawstring.  They even have Velcro pockets… for “treasure” collecting, of course.   

To complement these awesome shorts, look no further than a rash top in white.  The navy contrast stitching will tie in with the blue of the board shorts… not that your surfer dude will care.  The rash top come in both short or long sleeve lengths.


What have your kids been enjoying this summer?
