Styling For Sun Protection
Date Posted:21 January 2021
A white cotton t-shirt provides only moderate sun protection, with a UPF of about 7. Did you know that many people are getting sunburnt through their regular clothes? All of our Bamboo Body products have been awarded the rating of UPF 50+, with an exception to our white woven products, which have been awarded the rating of 30+. UPF clothing that is rated 50+ is equivalent to wearing SPF50+ sunscreen and blocks at least 98% of UV rays.

Some of our lovely BB customers have requested UPF outfit inspiration so, this week we have curated seven stylish outfits you can enjoy the sun in! To get maximum sun protection, we have made sure these outfits have either longer sleeves or higher necklines. We know what you're thinking - long sleeves in hot weather?! Our bamboo products are essential for the warmer months; while achieving a UPF rating of 50+, they are also lightweight and breathable. Studies show that bamboo clothing is more breathable than cotton and its moisture wicking properties help keep your body fresh and dry. Read more about the benefits of our UPF clothing here.
Our chosen BB styles are designed to fit into your everyday wardrobe and can be layered, mixed and matched. See below our favourite UPF styles. Shop our UPF capsule here.
