Sunsuits Cover Most of the Body

Infant, toddler, and kids' sunsuits cover most of your child's body, including the parts that tend to get sunburnt easily, such as the back, shoulders, and arms. Sun exposure is cumulative, and the more your child's skin is exposed to the sun, the more likely they could develop cancer later on down the road.

Sunsuits Allow Your Child To Be Seen

When you are at the beach or pool, it can be difficult to keep an eye on your child because of their stature. This is especially true if the beach or pool is crowded. Sunsuits are distinct, and many come in very bright colors and patterns that allow your child to be seen easily. This helps keep your child safe and makes spotting them a lot easier on parents!

Sunsuits Help Your Child Avoid Sunburn

Sunburn occurs when human skin is exposed to the powerful UV rays of the sun for too long without protection. It is actually a sign of damage to your skin cells, which is why your body protests and sunburns hurt. When your child wears a sunsuit, such as those from George Hats, you can rest assured your child will be highly unlikely to get sunburnt in the covered areas.

Sunsuits Offer Warmth and Comfort

Sunsuits can offer warmth and comfort to your child, especially to your baby. A well-made sunsuit fits nice and snug, offering a swaddling effect to your child when they are at the beach or pool. Sunsuits also help to keep your child from getting a chill when they exit the water, helping them to enjoy swimming and not to think about the cold when they get out of the water.
