When shopping for toddlers it is so important to find something they want to wear. Rash guards can be extremely 'sticky' when went and extremely hard to get off.
So - we created SwimZip - Rash Guards that come off with one quick zip. You might be worried if the zipper would bug them, but don't you worry - I'm a mom of 2 boys and I thought the same thing - so I created a zipper flap that lays flat and protects their precious skin from getting rubbed with our zipper.
Kids even feel so comfortable it could be their PJs and head to the beach straight from waking up - and have donuts on the beach. Okay, maybe that is a little far, my son still loves his footed PJs, but I might be able to convince him to wear his SwimZip.
Our new SwimZip wide brim sun hats with SPF 50+ UV sun protect ("Fun Sun Play" Hats) have us jumping for joy over here at SwimZip Headquarters. Betsy designed them to be slightly longer in the front and back, along with a wide brim, to protect your little babes from the sun's harmful UV rays. Our new hats come in MANY colors including a darling soft lavender, light pink, white, orange, dark blue, light blue, bright orange, bright yellow, and more.
We know the beach can get a bit windy, so we added the elastic cap tightener (seen in the photo above) so that your littles have a snug fitted sun hat that stays on! The hats also have a simple string that tightens below the chin (as seen below).
We have customized the colors so that they go with your favorite SwimZip! We are so excited for you to try them out and let us know what you think.
Go to our Facebook or Instagram (or both for double chances to win!!) and follow the simple instructions there to enter yourself and TWO friends to win a SwimZip sun hat of their choice.
Can't wait to see your photos! Remember to tag us and use #SwimZip so that we can follow your sun safe adventures. xoxo
I look into skin cancer a lot – after my diagnosis and my kids swimwear business, I really have to stay on top of it! Skin cancer is scary, and today I wanted to jump on our kids swimwear blog to let you know something ... Most people don’t realize that more than 3.5 million skin cancers in over two million people are diagnosed each year or that the incidence of melanoma in teenagers has increased by 100% over the past 10 years. Did you hear that!?! MELANOMA IN OUR TEENAGERS HAS INCREASED BY 100% in 10 years! How scary. :( Swimsuit time around the pool or beach can be a particularly intense UV time because all the sun’s rays are bouncing around off of the water or sand. Getting your kids and children to wear sun protection kids swimwear is there for extremely important! We strongly preach … “No hat, no sun shirt, no play!” I founded SwimZip sun protection kids swimwear with my brother, Berry, because we truly want to help turn these skin cancer statistics around. Our with our sun protection, UPF 50+ UV protection swimwear is a simple and adorable way to help keep kids sun safe. Having found skin cancer on my back, and having the doctor question if it we should really test it, I know it can be hard to get people to listen. But I am listening! I am here to help you and your little babes stay UV sun safe. Did you know that 95% of skin cancers are preventable! SwimZip is on a mission to develop awareness of UV protection kids swimwear and how easy it can be! Thank you for joining us on our journey to grow the sun protection kids swimwear industry...
