UPF 50+ clothing

By Bamboo Body on October 6, 2015 in | comments

Did you know the fabric used by Bamboo Body has a UPF rating of 50+ Excellent?  This means that our fabric is effective as protection against solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) and reduces the amount of solar UVR by a factor of over 50.

 

The two main blends of fabric that we use here at Bamboo Body are 93% bamboo + 7% spandex and 70% bamboo, 25% organic cotton + 5% spandex.  Bothe fabric blends have been tested by ARPANSA and both fabric blends offer an Ultraviolet Protection Factor of 50+.

 

        

The following styles are recommended as having good skin coverage and will provide excellent sun protection:


The Ada Boat Neck


The Ada Boat Neck has a high neckline and ¾ length sleeves.  An excellent option for year round wear, the Ada Boat Neck is one of the most popular Bamboo Body styles.





Bamboo Sash / Scarf


This handy little item is multifunctional.  It provides warmth in the colder weather, sun protection in the warmer months and adds a touch of style to any outfit.  The Bamboo Sash / Scarf is available in a wide variety of colours as you are sure to want more than one.





The Taylor Top


The Taylor Top is fantastic for layering.  A close fitting style, the Taylor Top provides protection across the chest and arms.  Layer this style under sleeveless dresses such as the Swing Dress or sleeveless tops such as the Swing Top.





The Tab Sleeve Top


Featuring a mandarin neckline that can be buttoned up, and sleeves that come just past the elbow or rolled up to sit just above the elbow, the Tab Sleeve Top provides excellent skin coverage.  This is a stylish item that can be worn with skirts or pants for most occasions.





The Shell Top


The Shell Top provides excellent chest coverage.  Wear this top with a Tie Top (as shown below) to add extra arm coverage.





The Tie Top


For a little extra arm coverage, the Tie Top is an excellent option.



The Sophie Top


The Sophie Top is a relaxed fit style that doesn't cling.  It provides good neck coverage, the sleeves end just above the elbow and the bottom hem is rounded for a stylish effect.  A popular basic in a flattering shape.
