Not All Kids' UV Clothing Is The Same!
At One Step Ahead, we've always been big proponents of kids' UV clothing. After all, we're all about keeping children safe, and UV clothing makes sun safety much easier for parents. The sun block is built right into the fabric.
But when we first began testing UV apparel years ago, we made two disappointing discoveries:
- Many kids' UV clothing brands offer a UPF of 30, although there are superior fabrics out there with a greater UPF of 50+. Why settle for less?
- Many UV fabrics are stiff and scratchy, and we're not okay with that. Because if it isn't comfortable, kids won't be happy wearing it.
That's why we developed our own line of kids' UPF clothing, Sun Smarties. We created it exactly the way we wanted, with input from parents and kids. And here's what makes Sun Smarties unique:
Protection - Every piece in our collection is UPF 50+, the highest UV protection available. (Others aren't, so check before you buy.)
Quality - From materials to workmanship, we sweat the small stuff. Just one example: we tested many, many samples before selecting our fade and chlorine-resistant swimwear fabric. The end result: high-quality kids' clothing that's comfortable, durable, and cute.
Child-friendly - Kids love wearing Sun Smarties, because the fabrics are soft, the cuts are comfortable, and the styles are fun. And that just makes dressing easier for everyone.
It's Green! - No landfill waste...our reusable swim diapers blow soggy disposables out of the water. They're hygienic, economical, and welcome at all public pools.
Versatility - The Sun Smarties collection is all mix and match, so you can build a great summer wardrobe around just a few pieces.
Value - While plenty of kids' swimwear wears out by mid-summer, Sun Smarties keeps its shape and color all season.
Frustration-free Sizing - We work meticulously to deliver an accurate fit, and we eliminate the guesswork by providing highly-detailed size charts.
Finally, we listen to you, our customers, to continually improve our products. Your comments and products reviews are invaluable. Each year, when we update our Sun Smarties collection, we incorporate your suggestions and ideas.
So give your child extra protection against the dangers of the sun: Play it safe...be a Sun Smartie!
