This post has been a long time coming. Let me explain something about Florida. We have Summer hot and scorching, Summer rainy and muddy, Summer cloudy and humid, Fallter..that is a mix of a want to be Fall and Winter. Then rainy Spring. No doubt it is swim season nearly year round! We are in September and still getting 100 on the heat index some days! No signs of cooling down yet!
We received this stunning 2pc SwimZip long sleeve top and swim trunks early Summer to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are that of my own, OK, my husband helped too! The start of our Summer we were battling new pool owner syndrome and rainy and muddy Summer for most of it. New pool owner syndrome means we have never owned or had to take care of a pool before. Green is not something you want to swim in. Let me just say my son really loves swimming, when the water is blue!
SwimZip is the genius product behind mastermind Betsy who was a skin cancer victim. She wanted something that would protect the family. This is where the 50+ SPF SwimZip line came in to play! With some persistance and a little boost from a show some love called Shark Tank, SwimZip is nothing short of a success story to keep parents like me from having a panic attack about skin safety and the battles of sunscreen!
Want to know the best part? This is not going to cost you an arm and a leg! This 2pc set here called Hard Working Man retails for $29.99 and comes in a huge variation of sizes. From size 0-3 months up to size 9 kids! Davin is modeling the size 6-12 months and has been wearing this all Summer. He is currently almost 10 months old in the first photo and was about 8 months old in the others.
The shorts have a tie in the front and netting inside. The long sleeve top is perfect for us. My biggest stress trying to prepare to hit the pool is beating the rain and applying sunscreen. This is a catch 22 as by the time you apply sunscreen on a rolling infant the rain might be hovering right over your backyard!
Making sure I got every inch of Davin’s skin was a stressful procedure. With the long sleeve set I cut the sunscreen application by more than half! I now just apply to his neck and bottom of legs and we are on our way to some water fun! The zipper is sturdy and not metal which would post many issues in itself. The top zips up easily, it makes getting ready to swim, a zip with SwimZip (See what I did there? Lol)
I am so very pleased by the quality of the SwimZip set I can honestly wish right now I had some for myself! SwimZip does carry for women and men as well! As an ivory, pale, fair…you name it…Polish/Swedish/Irish blend Momma, skin care and cancer have always been fears in my household. Sunscreen application is a must in this weather and in my family, we do not even go outside without sunscreen on our faces as a bare minimum. The prices are so affordable compared to normal swimwear you go and buy at the department stores and it not only is fashionable but serves a very important purpose. TO PROTECT YOU!
Davin will be getting at least one each season now! This invention has been such a stress relief for not only time, to prepare to go swimming, but for safety! Too often parents look the other way for Summer fun. Summer fun can only stay fun if we protect our kids from the elements that may cause harm!
