Sun Protection Swimsuits for Men and Women

With global warming and our skin being more exposed to the sun's harmful rays, make sure you suit up in one of these sun protection suits this summer.

Sun protection clothing blocks almost 98% of harmful UVA and UVB rays. Most clothing worn only protects about 50% of suns harmful rays, if that. Sun protection clothing and swimming wear is growing in popularity as a reliable form of UV protection. Sun protective clothing originated from Australia, but is now gaining popularity throughout the world and especially here in the United States. When looking for a true sun protective garment, look first for one that has passed the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists Tests (AATCC) Test Method 183. This shows that the garment successfully blocks harmful rays. Look also for a sun protective product that has passed the American Society for Testing and Materials. (ASTM) D 6544. Most clothing that has gone through this expensive second test will cost you more, but has gone through rigorous testing to be sure that it continues to hold up to harmful sun rays even after many washings, wear, and fading.

Cabana Life found that many people weren't buying sun protective clothing because most people felt it was drab, and not very stylish. They answered that call, and created their own line of stylish, trendy sun protective clothing and swimwear. For men, choose the stylish board shorts and rash guard. The set will only set you back $75. For women, choose the stylish tunic dress, also $75. While small in selection for men and women (they're mostly into children's clothes now) expect them to branch out and begin carrying more adult clothing soon.

While the sun protective swimwear and clothing market is mostly geared to children, expect the focus to shift to adults with the increased focus on global warming and the increased rise in skin cancer outbreaks. Expect companies to include more trendy, stylish clothing to fit a variety of different budgets and tastes.
