Do you love what you do?

Absolutely. While skin cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer, it is also one of the most preventable. About 90% of skin cancer cases are linked to ultraviolet (UV) radiation exposure from the sun. At Solbari we are passionate about preventing skin cancer and we are on a mission to reduce the rates of skin cancer not only in Australia but around the world.


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. Once you know your size with us, you can buy the same size for all your other Solbari garments. 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. 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 your fabrics?

Our styles come in a number of different fabrics, all of which have been tested and rated UPF50+ protection:
• Our CoolaSun fabric is our most light-weight fabric which has been designed to keep you cooler in warm conditions. It has a soft and silkier feel than our other fabrics.
• Our Sensitive fabric is made of organic cotton and bamboo. It is also super soft and breathable.

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.


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 at least 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.

A UPF50+ is the highest sun protective rating available in the world for fabrics.

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.
