Within as little as 15 minutes, the sun’s rays are very damaging to your skin so it is important to cover up.  If you are at the beach, in your pool at home or out at a fun park with your children, a wetshirt is the perfect option.

UPF, unlike SPF, measures protection against both UVA and UVB rays. Right now, on sunscreens sold, the SPF is the only measure of protection listed and that only measures the sunscreen’s protection against the sun’s UVB rays. Protection against UVA rays is not currently listed on the label and those rays are just as dangerous.

Stay Sun Safe

That is why sun protective clothing with a UPF rating that measures the protection you are getting from both UVA and UVB rays may be even more effective at preventing the sun’s damaging rays

Our wetshirts are UPF 50+ which means that they give you ultimate protection from the UV rays.  With full length sleeves and a longer body length means you can be sun safe at the same time as having fun.  Your best protection is to use sunscreen and also wear protective sun smart clothing.

Being sunsmart means

  • Slip on protective clothing
  • Use a sunscreen of at least SPF 30+
  • Wear a hat that shades the face, head, neck and ears
  • Try and stay in the shade

These are all great protective measures to look after our skin.

With lycra wetshirts being so easy to move in, they are also great for other outdoor activities such as stand up paddle boarding, kayaking or even walking while being quick to dry.

Size guide

All of our swimsuits are true to size. This means you should follow your normal sizing.

The best guide is your underwear - so what you would wear in a bra and undies is the size you order from us in tops and bottoms. For example, in you wear an 18E bra, you should order a size 18 swimsuit top from us.

If you are looking for a one piece and are in between sizes, say an 18E bra and a 20 in underpants, we recommend choosing the larger of the two sizes - so a size 20 in this case.

If you have any issues with your new swimsuit, we do 30 day refunds for full priced items and exchanges for all items - so you can swap to a size or style that is more suitable for you!
