Support Skin Cancer Awareness Month with Lands’ End

May is Skin Cancer Awareness month, and this year marks the fifth anniversary of Lands’ End’s Swim Tee, which boasts UPF 50 sun protection. To mark the occasion, Lands’ End is hosting a #LandsEndSunSavvy Swim Tee Sweepstakes, giving away 20 Swim Tees and $1,000 in Lands’ End gift cards during the month of May.

“When you consider the growing statistics about skin cancer, it makes sense for us to design sun savvy solutions for our customers to wear while they are in the sun,” adds Chieh Tsai, senior vice president of design, Lands’ End, Inc. “We introduced the legendary women’s Swim Tee five years ago and the original long-sleeve tee has quickly grown into a collection of styles. The tee is a lightweight, easy fitting layer that can be worn in and out of the water that our customers have grown to love not only for functionality, but for style and comfort.”

According to The Skin Cancer Foundation, more people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year in the United States than all other cancers combined. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70. On top of sunscreen, the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends Swim Tee fabric, which provides the same level of protection, whether in the water or on land, that won’t wash off. 

Designed with comfort in mind, the lightweight, breathable fabric of the Swim Tee features four-way stretch and moisture wicking properties so it is an easy option to wear by the pool or at a summer party. It is available in solids, stripes, tropical and Mediterranean inspired prints in a host of sizes including regular, petite, long, plus and plus long. Swim Tees and other rash guard styles featuring UPF 50 sun protection are also available for the entire family.
