If you’re in Florida, you know that winter only lasts for a few days. Your family will probably be spending many days at the beach all year long. Or, perhaps you live elsewhere and are planning a getaway to warmer weather to thaw out after shoveling snow all winter. Among the many attractions that Florida offers, the beaches are a must-see. I love the soft, white sand and warm water. If you’re really lucky, you may even catch some dolphins playing in the water nearby! But when it comes to taking your kids to the beach, safety is very important. Not only do they need to learn how to swim, or at least have proper adult supervision at all times near the water….. but they need protection from the sun! I originally discovered SwimZip® when Betsy shared their company’s story on Shark Tank (Season 5, Episode 15) a few years ago. I knew the products would be a great fit for my family and I’m so excited to share them with you guys!

What is SwimZip?

After being diagnosed with skin cancer at the young age of 26, founder, Betsy Johnson, set out on a mission to create sun protective swimwear to help shield her kids and protect them from the same fate.

SwimZip, is a sun protective swimwear company based in Kansas City. They design adorable swimwear to make you and your kids feel comfortable and confident, with a signature full zipper down the front of their rash guard shirts for ease in putting on and taking off kids’ swim shirts! And more importantly, SwimZip offers SPF 50+ protection.

Our Thoughts:

Andrew and Aidan received matching “Pineapple Dreams” sets and Avalynn received the “Primrose Yellow” set with a long sleeved rash guard. We made a quick trip out to Saint Pete Beach, Florida to test them out and the kids had a great time! They all fit perfectly true to size and the quality is great!

Our kids spend A LOT of time outside playing, at the beach and in the yard, and I know I will have better peace of mind knowing they are taking extra steps to protect their skin more! Each of the outfits we received retail for only $29.99, which is really affordable-especially for all of the added benefits and features!

I am so excited we got to try out SwimZip swimwear and plan to add several more pieces to our collection…..after all, in Florida it’s basically summer ALL year long!
