Regular and sun protection swimwear uses a special type of stretch fabric that is suitable for use in water. Mostly made from Nylon, Lycra, Elastane, Spandex or Polyester yarn. The quality and performance is linked to the fabric composition example Nylon/Lycra or Polyester/PBT and to the weight example 170gsm or 200gsm (grams per square meter). However, to achieve UV protection status you need to knit tightly the fabric in order to block the sun UV rays from getting through and reaching the skin. Hence some regular swimwear fabrics are not suitable for sun protection. The highest UV protection ratings a fabric can achieve is UPF50+ which blocks over 97.5% of the sun.
The design difference is quite visible between regular swimwear, which tends to follow fashion trends and personal tastes where more skin is exposed. While sun protection swimwear take into considerations the need to cover as much skin as possible to ensure protection against the sun UV radiation. Sun-protective coverup swimwear designs such as stinger suits, dive skins and full body swimsuits covering the arms and legs have the ability to keep the skin protected all day long from the harsh UV rays. Harsh UV rays can cause sunburns, skin damage and worst-case scenario skin cancer.
