Swimsuits with Sleeves? Why you Need One in your Closet.

Old Navy Swimsuit with sleeves

When I was in elementary school my mom would make me wear a t-shirt over my swimsuit when we had been in the sun for a long time. I used to get so annoyed with her about it because I wanted to get a tan and show my suit off. As 40 year old adult who went through a painful sun spot removal procedure I wish I had listened to what she was saying.

Last summer, after talking about it for years, I had all of the sunspots removed on my shoulders at NUR Med Spa. It was an easy process and not time consuming but it was incredibly painful. I wish I had spent more years protecting my shoulders from the sun. The finished product is beautiful and completely worth it.

Post procedure I am an avid sunscreen user on my face and on my shoulders and arms too. Sunscreen is a great barrier but adding another layer between you and the sun will help too which is what makes swimsuits with sleeves so perfect. Also, if we are discussing other things I regret as a young person not wearing sunscreen daily is at the top of that list. Wear it!

I rounded up several options from cute to sassy to functional while all keeping your shoulders covered!
