Cover-up style advice from Marques G. Harper:

“…a swim cover-up, the perfect camouflage for pool-time antics, becomes your style bestie. Seriously, the cover-up, whether a lightweight dress or loose pants or a skirt, can be the quickest way to give yourself a confidence boost when you’re not in the water, and it can be an easy way to shield your skin from the brutal sun, especially if you’re spending hours in a lounge chair.

And here’s the kicker for anyone who’s always on the go. When properly accessorized, a cover-up can allow you to go from the pool to an afternoon errand or meal. Go ahead and stock your pool bag with options such as leggings, a belt, a T-shirt and jewelry for after-the-pool looks.”

 New in 2010 UV Skinz is featuring a  cover-up that offers stylish elegance and uv sun protection; The Kathy Wrap!  The Kathy Wrap comes in three colors; spunky hot pink, sleek white, and classic black.  Using the advice of Marques Harper, wear your Kathy Wrap with flowing skirt or jean shorts and your favorite strappy sandals. Mix and match, be bold, and play safe in the sun!

The Kathy Wrap is offered at UV Skinz in sizes small to 4XL! And you can still expect the same UV Skinz qualities as all of our other uv swim shirts:


  • 50+ UPF certified fabric (blocks out over 98% of sun’s harmful rays)
  • Elastane threading throughout (allows for more ‘stretch’)
  • Flat-lock stitching (no ‘raised’ seams to irritate skin)
  • Lightweight, breathable construction
  • Chlorine-Resistant fabric
