SIZING AND SOLBARI FABRICS

Are your garments true to size?

Our garments fit true to size. They have a nice flattering shape without being baggy or too tight. Before you purchase, we strongly recommend you check our size chart against your measurements. We try to make our sizing consistent across our Solbari range. You can find our size guide on our product pages and under our customer service tab.

My skin is prone to irritation, can I wear Solbari?

We also cater for people with skin conditions and those who need to avoid sun exposure for medical reasons. Our Sensitive fabric is made of natural and certified organic fibres. They do not use harmful chemicals, insecticides or pesticides. They are gentle on the skin, naturally soft and anti-odour, lightweight and rated UPF50+.

What is the difference between Solbari fabrics

Our styles come in a number of different fabrics, all of which have been tested and rated UPF50+ protection.

How do I care for my Solbari?

Always read and follow the washing instructions on the care label for the garments and the swing tag for the hats. You can also find the washing instructions by going directly to the product page and clicking on the "Fabric Details" tab.

Do you sell your fabrics?

We do not sell our fabrics.

OUR UPF50+ RATING

What does UPF mean and why is it important?

UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor. This indicates how much of the sun’s UV radiation is blocked by the fabric before it reaches your skin. Our rating is the highest achievable, which is UPF50+ on all our products. This means that 98% of broad spectrum UVA and UVB rays are blocked by the fabric and cannot damage your skin. Our products act as the sun barrier that you wear.

What is the difference between UPF and SPF?

UPF is the protection rating given to Fabrics and SPF is for Sunscreen.

Do all summer garments have the same sun protection as Solbari?

No. Solbari gives you the highest sun protection possible of UPF 50+ and covers large areas of your skin and blocks at least 98% of UVA and UVB rays.

In comparison, most other summer clothing provides very little protection. Research shows that a thin white cotton t-shirt only has a UPF of 5 leaving your skin exposed to sun damage.The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends sun protective clothing as the first line of defence against the sun, then comes sunscreen.

Do regular cotton and bamboo garments protect like your sensitive fabric?

No. Our Sensitive fabric is different to other cotton and bamboo fabrics. Our certified organic cotton and bamboo are grown without the use of chemicals, insecticides, herbicides, pesticides or artificial fertilisers. It took 18 months to develop it. Our team worked closely with scientists and fabric experts to obtain the highest sun protection factor of UPF50+. You can think of it as sun protection SPF50+ built inside the yarn of the fabric.

Do I need to wear sunscreen if I wear Solbari clothing?

You need to wear sunscreen on areas which are not covered by your Solbari.

If you are wearing a hat, we recommend that you still wear sunscreen on your face and neck as UV rays can be reflected from the ground, water and snow.
