The UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating measures the UV protection provided by a fabric. It is similar to the SPF rating system used for sunscreen products. This rating indicates how much UV radiation a fabric allows to reach your skin.
ModLi's swimwear rating is UPF50+, which is the highest possible rating. Which means it only allows 1/50th of the UV radiation to pass through it, blocking 98% of harmful rays. However, no clothing can completely blcok our UV rays, so the use of sunscreen is still recommended.
Note: Most fabrics lose some of their UV protection if the garment is stretched out or worn, or if it has been washed repeatedly. In addition, when the garment is damp or wet, the amount of UV protection is typically reduced. Lighter colors tend to lose more of their sun protection when damp or wet than darker colors. These factors can affect the level of UV protection.
Everyone can benefit from UPF rated swimwear.
