Perfect! I spent A LOT of time researching protective sun/swimwear and this is the only one that met my qualifications. And it's adorable! Even cuter than the pictures. Seller was very helpful and accommodating. Responded quickly to questions and even went above and beyond to get the suit to me before we left for vacation.

"Sun protective clothing" From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(My emphasis in CAPS added)

Sun protective clothing is clothing specifically designed for sun protection and is produced from a fabric rated for its level of ultraviolet (UV) protection. A novel weave structure and denier (related to thread count per inch) may produce sun protective properties. In addition, some textiles and fabrics employed in the use of sun protective clothing may be pre-treated with UV inhibiting ingredients during manufacture to enhance their UV blocking capacity.

A NUMBER OF FABRICS AND TEXTILES IN COMMON USE TODAY NEED NO FURTHER UV-BLOCKING ENHANCEMENT based on their inherent fiber structure, density of weave, and dye components - especially darker colors and indigo dyes. GOOD EXAMPLES of these fabrics contain full percentages and/or blends of heavy weight natural fibers like cotton, linen and hemp or LIGHT WEIGHT SYNTHETICS such as polyester,NYLON, LYCRA and polypropylene. Natural or synthetic indigo dyed denim, twill weaves and canvas are also good examples. However, a significant disadvantage is the heat retention caused by heavier weight and darker colored fabrics."

Not only limited to UV-inhibiting textile use, sun protective clothing may also adhere to specific design parameters - including styling appropriate to full coverage of the skin most susceptible to UV damage. Long sleeves, full collars, and full-length trousers and skirts are common styles for clothing as a sun protective measure.
Some customer may wish to use a wash-in chemical reflectant (used in some commercial suits) on their suits, however most people find standard nylon lycra combined with styling to be sufficient.

Fabric care-
Nylon spandex makes great swimwear. It has a resilient stretch and retains its shape well. It's smooth and comfortable to wear and has good resistance to wear and tear. Like ANY swimwear however, your child’s suits will last longer with some simple care. Do not dry your suit in a hot dryer. The heat can break down the spandex or lycra fibers. Also, rinse out suits after swimming in a chlorinated pool and wash as soon as possible. Hand wash or gentle machine cycle in cool water with mild detergent.
