During the summer here in Houston, we somehow magically move about 2 inches from the surface of the sun. It is incredibly hot here and we've already had several days where the temperature has broken 100 degrees...in JUNE!
All of this heat and direct sunlight has definitely got me thinking about sunscreen and how to protect my family's skin from the damaging effects of the sun, while still remaining cool and fashionable. Girls4Sport is a company with all of these goals in mind.
They've created an entire line of high performance UV protection swimwear, which offers modest coverage and maximum sun protection. They allowed me to review their adult half-sleeve top this summer in order to better protect my skin, no matter the conditions. Keep reading to learn more!
The Girls4Sport Adult Half-Sleeve Top in Riviera is a modestly styled swimwear top which offers UPF 50+ protection from the sun's rays. It has a slightly longer torso than one might expect so that you won't have to worry about the top riding up as you swim, surf or kayak.
I like the longer sleeves, for when I'm out in the sun, it seems that my upper arms are always especially vulnerable to burn. The Adult Half-Sleeve Top even comes equipped with a light support shelf bra which also offers another layer of modesty. I HATE when my nipples show due to the thin material of swimwear. I'm glad to know that because of the shelf bra as well as the busy print of this top, that will no longer be a concern.
The only thing that I didn't care for regarding the Girls4Sport Adult Half-Sleeve Top was the fit of the top itself. First of all, I typically wear a size small in most garments and according to the website's size chart, I should have ordered a small. I decided to go with a medium because I wanted this top to fit a little looser, especially around the waistline.
Unfortunately though, the size medium fit rather snugly everywhere. I doubt I would have even been able to squeeze into the size small I should have ordered. So if you are planning on purchasing one of these rash guards, I would suggest going up one size to fit and maybe two sizes if you want the top to fit loosely.
If you plan on soaking up the summer sun, make sure your skin doesn't do most of the soaking! I highly suggest the fashionable styles of UV swimwear protection from Girls4Sport. Their stylish patterns and designs of both women and girls rash guards will have you looking and feeling great no matter if you're at a theme park, swimming pool, beach or river. Protect your skin in modest style this summer with Girls4Sport!
