As Montana finally realizes that winter is over (took it long enough), I'm encountering the issue of suitable attire. Finding clothing that covers up, yet doesn't suffocate has been difficult to put it mildly. We have 2 stores that sell so called SPF clothing but the styles are extremely limited and the prices outrageous! Yes, I've looked online where I've found more choices yet face the same $ problem.
It also makes me question how well does SPF clothing work? Is it worth the price? What proof is there that the SPF stuff is even in the clothing in the first place?? Advertising can say just about anything it wants. There's rarely truth in advertising anymore. So how do we know we are getting what we are paying for? Is SPF clothing any better than just wearing long sleeve shirts and long pants? I've considered getting a sheet and cutting 2 holes for eyes just like on Charlie Brown for Halloween (just kidding?) Would spritzing a long sleeved shirt with non oily sunscreen work just as well?
I don't intend to stay inside. Montana summers are too short not to enjoy every moment possible. I have sunscreen. I'm well stocked up on that. I did buy a really cool SPF 50+ hat yesterday and will wear it even though I don't like hats. I can't afford the SPF clothing and hope it goes on sale at the end of season when I'll buy it then. I continue my quest for suitable and affordable clothing.
