Celebrate July 4th

Posted

July 4th is a great American holiday where everyone spends the day in the sun and the blazing heat. At the neighborhood pool, there are parades and swim contests galore. Greased watermelons, egg tosses, relay races. At the beach, it’s a day in the sun full of sand castles, boogie boarding, surfing, swimming and fireworks. On the lake, everyone loves riding on the boat or jetski and soaking up some sun.

We all know that the 4th is one of everyone’s favorite holidays, however, it isn’t fun when you or your children get a sunburn. There is a solution for you!

Sun protective swimwear for kids

UV protective products offer excellent sun protection while you or your kids enjoy the outdoors and you can keep them on even when grilling at your cookout or competing in the egg toss! Rash guards and swim shirts are lightweight and breathable, so you can wear them in and out of water. Because of the breathability, they won’t get too hot.

Our one-piece body suits are also great to throw on so there’s no worry about sun burn throughout the day full of fun! Moms can enjoy the mother – son swim race without worrying about re applying sunscreen on their kids or losing their own bikini bottoms.
