Little Boys Rash Guards
Rash guards are often worn by Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners and athletes who participate in watersports, like surfboarding. However, you don’t have to be an athlete on dry land or in water to wear a rash guard. These rash guards for little boys offer many advantages that regular bathing suits don’t. If you are looking for quality swimwear for your toddler-aged son, consider little boys’ swim shirts like rash guards. Let’s take a look at all the benefits that little boys’ rash guards have to offer.
Rash guards give your little boys the sun protection they need when playing out in the sun—they’re especially useful if the ones you are buying are UPF rash guards. A little boy’s long-sleeve rash guard not only covers the entire torso but also blocks out harmful UV rays even better than sunscreen can (though this doesn’t mean you should forego applying sunscreen!).
Little Boys’ Swim Shirts
Aside from UV protection from the sun, rash guard swimsuits for little boys also serve to protect him in other ways. The durable material of the fabric will protect your son’s skin from harsh natural elements like sand and rocks. Rash guards may also improve your son’s comfort levels by keeping him warm when he ventures out into the sea, lake, or pool. If he gets out after a dip in the water and feels a cool breeze, wearing a rash guard will keep him warm and help him get dry sooner.
Rash guards usually come in a neutral-toned solid color like black, gray, or navy, so you can easily pair them with any boys’ swim trunks style. If you are considering having your toddler-aged son wear something on top to protect him from the sun and other natural elements, it may be tempting to simply throw a regular cotton T-shirt on him. But while that might offer some protection, it won’t provide nearly as much protection as a long-sleeve UPF rash guard. Additionally, a form-fitting rash guard is flexible and easy to move around, unlike most T-shirts. You also need to consider that a soaking wet cotton T-shirt will absorb a whole lot of water and weigh quite heavily on your little one, whereas a boys’ rash guard is lightweight and won’t weigh him down or restrict movement.
