Okay, a short lesson on UV radiation! The sun’s rays are comprised of good radiation (UVA), which increases the synthesis of vitamin D and creates a long lasting tan, and “not so good” rays (UVB), which causes sunburns. Blankkini’s swimsuits allow for 75% of the sun’s rays to reach your skin. Of that 75%, 85% are UVA and 15% are UVB. This ensures that you’ll get a uniform, long lasting tan with almost no tan lines.
During the development process of our Smart Fiber fabric, it was important for us that we maintain all of the characteristic features of swimsuit fabric and even establish a new industry standard. The result is a fabric that is 20% more elastic than any other fabric in the industry and dries three times faster. Our fabric is form fitting, refreshing, lightweight and pleasant to the touch.
For most of us, different skin tones and tan lines are the result of years of sun exposure in specific areas and less exposure or none at all in others. So while Blankkini’s suits allow about 90% of the good rays (UVA) to go through the suit, it takes about 3-4 good beach days to achieve a uniform tan. Of course, the number of sessions necessary to get a good, even tan varies from person to person. In order to get an even tan, it’s important to put on sunscreen in all of the areas that aren’t covered by the bathing suit, especially during your first few times out in the sun with the suit.
Blankkini’s quality swimsuits are made with Smart Fiber, which holds up over time and is just fine to wash. Laundry instructions can be found on the label of each suit and we recommend that you hand wash your suit at 40 degrees Celsius.
