SwimZip is a mom-invented, chlorine-resistant swim shirt with UV 50+ protection and a full-length zipper that made taking it on and off easy for all involved. The zippers have a protective flap so as not to catch the skin and the seams are flat-stitched so there is no chaffing.
SwimZip was conceived by Betsy Johnson, a skin cancer survivor herself. Betsy’s “a-ha” moment came while sitting on the beach. Her brother started complaining about how his daughter, Maryella, hated taking on and off her swim shirt just as much as she hated having sunscreen applied to her body. It was from this problem that SwimZip was born. With a pair of scissors, Betsy cut Maryella’s swim shirt down the front and fastened it back together with safety pins. All of a sudden, the shirt was a breeze to take on and off.
Betsy’s passion is to keep kids sun safe and adults now too. SwimZip will be creating into adult sizes this summer. Parents lead by example, so parents zipping on their UV 50+ sun protective swimwear is key – and SwimZip will have stylish adult size SwimZips that can be worn all summer long and even while walking in the sun!
SwimZip is sold in various stores and online and is available in 12 different styles! SwimZip also sells wholesale to stores! If you’re interested in wholesale kids swimsuits, you can contact them here.
