Babes in the shade

babes in the shadeA big issue for parents in Australia is protecting your child from fierce UV rays, especially in summer when the sun burns skin all-too-quickly. Many children (and adults) wear “rashies” at the beach. These tops provide high UV protection and saves you having to reapply sunscreen every couple of hours. The only problem is that they don’t always look good — or they can be quite expensive. Enter Babes in the Shade, an Australian business that has come up with some cool and affordable designs. They also have shirts with easy-to-use zips.

Hi Natalie, these are great! It is so hard to find decent rashies – most have surf brand names emblazoned on them…..thanks!

We have been told SO many times that we need to be careful of the Australian sun. A hole in the ozone…. what?!
We spent all day looking for sun shirts like this, but they were all, like you said, ugly!
I think I’ll order some of these. Thanks!
