Sunsuits offer all-over protection, which comes in handy when you plan on spending hours at the beach on a hot summer day. Most sunscreen — even the water-resistant variety — has to be reapplied every hour or so during swimming to remain effective. A sunsuit is a great way to avoid the hassle of having to reapply sunscreen all over the body since our UPF50+ fabric blocks 98% of harmful UVA and UVB rays. All our sunsuits are made from soft, lightweight Italian fabric, and are available with short or long sleeves in a variety of funky colours and patterns.
Though you’d never suspect it from its ultra-soft feel, our fabric is extremely durable and resistant to chlorine. Even heavily chlorinated pools are no match for our top quality products, which will hold their shape and colour through heavy exposure. The strength of our materials also means there’s no need to be too fussy about washing and drying. Most importantly, chlorine resistance means sensitive skin benefits from an extra barrier of protection from harsh pool chemicals.
At Mini Sandcrabs, we’re working to reduce the incidence of skin cancer in Australia, and there’s no more important time to practice sun safety than early childhood. Statistically, sunburn during childhood makes one much more likely to develop skin cancer later in life. Luckily, with Mini Sandcrabs swimwear, your little one can build sandcastles on the shore while you enjoy peace of mind knowing he’s well protected from the harmful effects of the sun. Even Prince George loves our sunsuits, having worn our “Henley” and “North Shore” designs during swimming lessons at Buckingham Palace!
