Summer means lots of time spent in swimming costumes. But although easy to slip into when dry, like all swimwear, the rash vest can be a nightmare to remove when wet! Not anymore.
Growing awareness of the dangers of sunburn has meant that for most children, the days of frolicking around on the beach in just about nothing are well and truly over. Instead, we pull out the rash vest, and although they’ll save skin from turning pink, until now, they can be a real drama to get out of!
SwimZip has created a rash vest for kids with a zip. It’s such a great idea that I’m wondering why nobody ever did it before! Sopping wet? No problem – even kids can just zip themselves straight out of the vest. There are six designs in the current range and all have a UV protection factor of 50+. They haven’t sacrificed fashion for function either – the girls’ rashies are pretty and the boys have classic surf style.
Sizes are from six months to five years, and all the vests are $29.99. Buy them online direct from SwimZip.
