Summer is coming and the sun's rays are getting stronger. Sunwear, or UV clothing, for children has become more popular over recent years as it effectively protects children from the sun. The great thing about UV clothing is that children don't have to slather on sunscreen where it protects them.

Here you'll find a selection of the best sunwear for kids, as well as where to buy it cheaply.

What are sunwear and UV clothing?

Sunwear with UV protection is woven in a special way so that it effectively protects the child from the sun's rays. It is woven in such a way that the sun's harmful rays do not penetrate the garment. This is particularly useful at the beach, where the UV index gets very high. If you're travelling south for your holiday, the sunwear will also come in very handy, as the UV index closer to the equator is incredibly high.

Why use UV swimwear for children?

Children's skin is both thinner and lighter than adult skin. They are therefore very exposed to the sun's dangerous rays. Sunwear and underwear are therefore useful as extra protection, in addition to sunscreen and a sun hat. Read more about children and sun protection here.
