My 4 year-old daughter needs the sun protection because she hates me reapplying sun screen. I love the front zip because its easy on/easy off. When I saw the Lemons pattern I was SOLD. This is our first time with swim shorts and my daughter loves them. No more "grass rug burn" from the slip-in-slide in our yard .... also no uncomfortable burn lines on her upper thigh from a day at the beach playing in sand. I think we will be shorts customers for some time. We'll save the tankini top in this 3-piece-set for indoor pool swimming in the winter.
