Stay Safe in the Sun in UV-Protective Swimwear

What if we told you that you're forgetting a major part of sun protection? And that it has to do with what you're wearing? That's right — your bikini. We all think one-pieces seem to do the trick, but don't get it twisted — the fabric of a basic swimsuit just doesn't cut it.

We've rounded up the best in UV-protective swimwear for every single kind of beach babe — the ones who always get burned, those of us who are super cautious damaging our skin and health (which we all should be), to even our recently-Brazilian waxed babes. Now, lesson's over — go have fun in the sun! Just don't forget to wear your protection.


Full coverage suits provide the most protection. Plus, the floral print sides on this one-piece are super-flattering and waist-shaping.
