Toddler Girls’ UPF Swimsuits
Getting new girls’ swimsuits that are cute and comfy is super important, but getting swimsuits that offer proper sun protection is even more so. Sure, you can slather on the sunscreen where your little one’s skin is exposed, but UV rays can also penetrate the fabric of your swimsuit. That’s why it is critical to shop for UPF swimsuits and maximize sun protection.
The good news is that there are plenty of toddler girls’ UPF swimsuits that provide excellent sun protection and are cute and comfy enough for your daughter to enjoy wearing. Whether she likes the look and feel of one-piece swimsuits or girls’ tankini tops with swim bottoms, there are countless swimsuit styles to choose from that also have UPF protection.
Sun Protection Swimwear for Toddler Girls
If you have never bought a UPF swimsuit for your little one before, you may be wondering what exactly it is and what it can do to protect them. UPF stands for ultraviolet protection factor, and a UPF swimsuit is designed to protect against UVB and UVA sunlight rays. The UPF is built right into the fabric of the swimsuit. Once you know that, you can narrow your search to find only toddler girls’ UV-protective swimsuits.
If you want maximum protection for your little one, you may want to stick to long-sleeve swimsuit styles, like girls' rash guards. This is a particularly great option if your daughter spends lots of time in the water and sun or is getting into water sports. If your little one prefers the look and feel of a swimsuit style like a tankini, you will just need to make sure she has sunscreen protecting her arms and neck, while the rest of the torso will be protected by the girls’ toddler UV protection bathing suit top.
When shopping for sun protective swimsuits for toddler girls, you should be aware that there are different UPF levels to choose from. The lowest level is UPF 30, and it will provide adequate sun protection, but it’s best to shop for swimsuits with higher UPF levels, like UPF 50 or UPF 50+. Additionally, take note of how form-fitting the swimsuit is. If the swimsuit is too loose, it won’t be able to protect the skin from UV rays as well. The more fitted the swimsuit, the better the coverage.
