Product Test No. 40:UV SWIM & PLAY WEAR

Published in the May 2009 Issue May 2009

Children are attracted to water, it's a fact of life. And as much as you try, sun block lotion isn't always the best, or at least the easiest solution to prevent your little ones from being sunburned. So when I came across the new Superman UV Swim & Play Wear from SunSmart Inc., I knew it would be a splash with our readers.

This brand new and innovative line of protective play and swim wear is a trendy, yet a smart approach to sun protection. If you have kids on the boat with you, make sure they're protected.

UV Swim & Play Wear is 97 percent (50++SPF) UVA/UVB Blocking four-way stretch fabric. This fabric is ideal for kids of all ages because no chemicals are added, and it dries in minutes for all day comfort.

The SunSmart UV line consists of fun themes like Superman & SuperGirl both with towel capes, as well as many other different designs. The apparel ranges from newborns to teens with size information being available at

The boys Superman one piece swim wear that is pictured retails around $31 while the SuperGirl one-piece swim wear goes for around $36. As fast as children grow this may seem a little pricey, but the fabric is quite durable and so you do have the possibility of passing them down the line to the next child if it works for your situation.

Plus the convenience of protecting your child when out on the water or on the beach is arguably worth the price.
