Protection from the sun is important to me. Thanks to my Mom I’ve learned about sun protective garments~most of which can err on the dorky side. With very fair skin which burns and does not tan I was eager to find some attractive options for my beach vacation.
I’m not going to miss out on all that water and sun time just because of a small thing like sun damage.
A few years ago I only found a few decent tops at Solumbra and none to buy from Coolibar. But now it seems that Coolibar Sp 50+ has trumped Solumbra’s Sp of 30. While in Turks and Caicos I worn my ruched swim shirt and pin tuck blouse almost every day and hand washed them easily out at night. Most people didn’t know I was wearing sun protective clothing and were happy to learn about it since they were having bad reactions to the sun. Here’s what I found which was stylish and great protection.
Some items are on sale and selling out fast so don’t wait!
~A very cool red fall hat which is also onsale
~Horizon sun hat
~Teal bendable poolside hat
~Easy sunwrap to throw over a t-shirt
~Swim skirt with shorts
~Ruched swim shirt
~Leggings could be worn with the above swim shirt if you wanted protection for your legs
~Ruffle swim shirt a more feminine option than a rash guard
~Featherweight cover up has great ruching in the breast area which is great for small chested women
~Silk infinity scarf
~Italia sun hat
~Women’s full zip workout top
I didn’t find the pintuck blouse for sale any longer but look for it in the future.
I would love to see a plain front side zip pant made by either company. I also would love to see Solumbra step it up another notch in terms of more stylish colors and styles. I am eager to consult with you!
