There are a number of specialist sun protective clothing brands in the World.
The best sun protective clothing brands primarily distribute their products online via their own websites and online marketplaces because it is a niche category of clothing. It is important to buy sun protective clothing direct from a trusted, highly rated brand to ensure that the product is high quality and genuinely sun protective.
Sun protective clothing is also known as sun protection clothing, UPF clothing (UPF is the sun protective rating for fabrics) and SPF clothing (which is because the general public know SPF (sun protection factor) from the rating applicable to sunscreen).
Australia pioneered the development of sun protective clothing and is renowned for being the global leader in skin cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
Australia established the global standard for rating sun protective fabrics in the 1990s. UPF 50+ is the highest rating awarded by the Australian Government. UPF 50+ means that the fabric blocks at least 98% of harmful UV radiation.

UPF 50+ is the maximum sun protective rating achievable for fabrics.
UPF stands for ultraviolet protection factor and is the sun protective rating measure for fabrics.
UPF50+ means that only up to 1/50th or 2% of ultraviolet radiation is able to penetrate the fabric which has been tested.
A fabric which has been awarded a UPF 50+ rating by the Australian Government is considered to provide excellent protection.
