Platypus Australia Review: Rash Guard Swimwear For Kids
Platypus Australia is a company that makes stylish, UV sun protection swimwear and rash guards for kids. Their rash guard swimwear offers maximum UV protection for kids blocking at least 97.5% of harmful UV radiation. As Dr. Michael R. Burgdorf says, is important to remember that even thought the sun is good for us, over exposure can be dangerous and damaging to our skin. That is why I love that the Platypus Australia swimwear is UV sun protection swimwear with a UPF of 50+. Why not go with the built in protection? I also love that they offer lots of rash guard swimwear choices from long sleeve rash guard shirts to zip up rash guards to short sleeve rash guards for boys and for girls! The new 2016 collection features fun, colorful prints and adorable silhouettes. Think seashells, floral and flamingos for the girls and sailboats, lobsters, retro island motifs and geometric shapes for the boys. Platypus Australia Rash Guard Swimwear sizes are from newborn to 14.
My son has a birthmark on his shoulder and he is very fair so a rash guard shirts are a must. Each Platypus Australia Rash Guard Swimwear collection has tons of choices that mix and match well within the set so you can get a couple of rash guard shirts to go with the same bottoms (for example if you want a long sleeve rash guard shirt and a short sleeve) or a few different style bottoms to go with one rash guard (like board shorts a more traditional swim short). In other words, it is easy to find jus the UV sun protection swimwear you want and the rash guard shirts to match. I ordered a bit big for my son (a size 10 even though he is 8) because he is growing so fast.
My daughter tans up very well but I still want to keep her skin protected and most swim suits just don’t cover the shoulders and that is always the first place to get burned. However if we are at an indoor swimming pool, she prefers to go without the rash guard shirts. They have all the options you could want for girls from bikini UV sun protection swimwear to one piece UV sun protection swimwear. They also have multiple styles of rash guard shirts to match each swimsuit. They even have boardie shorts for girls and girl swimsuit coverups. All the designs have super cute detailing. The one piece swim suit UV sun protection swimwear my daughter chose has an adorable contrasting tie in the back and cinching in the front. I ordered a 10 for my 10 year old daughter and it fits perfectly. She is on the smaller size for her age for your size gaging purposes.
Whether you wanting to find the essentials to pack for your tropical vacation or the rash guard swimwear that you will need to protect your kids from summer days at the pool, you are sure to find all the UV sun protection swimwear styles you could want and rash guard shirts to protect your kids skin from the sun!
