Butterfly tattoo 

The tattoo you can slip off! 

Skin cancer is preventable - Did you know that skin cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed types of cancer in the world? The good news is that it is also one of the most preventable types of cancer. 

Over 1 million cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed in 2007, and that does not include cases of melanoma, the deadliest type of skin cancer. Recently, skin cancer has been diagnosed in more young people, proving that people are not taking the proper precautions. Learn how to prevent skin cancer and you'll learn how to save your life.

    Skate Style - All the same great 50+upf protection as the Classic SleeveZ but without the top of hand cover or finger loop. Skater style is loose around the wrist to give extra airflow & keep arms COOL when the temperature is HOT. For sizing measure underarm to wrist.


    •     Lightweight breathable fabric (similar to swimsuit fabric), wicks moisture to keep skin cool
    •     Adjustable upper arm band (button)

    How do they stay up?

    Much the same way socks stay up! The cuff at the top of the sleeves is slightly narrower than the rest of the Sleeve.
    This part fits snugly on the narrowest part of the arm just above the bicep which also helps to stop the Sleeve slithering, djutable button loop allows for additional tightening on upper arm band.
    From time to time you will probably have to adjust the Sleevez to ensure continued coverage as they may move slightly with strenuous exercise 

    Compare to a regular white T shirt which gives only 10-15 spf,  & is reduced to only 5 SPF when wet, Sunny Sleevez provide continuous 50+ UPF/SPF

    See FAQs for additional sun sleeve information 

    Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than 3.5 million cases in two million people are diagnosed annually.
  • Each year there are more new cases of skin cancer than the combined incidence of cancers of the breast, prostate, lung and colon.
  • One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime.


To get the best fit for your sleeves, measure around the narrowest part of your upper arm above the bicep.

Divide this number by 2 to get the width (see chart below).

Chose the width that is 1-2 inches smaller as sleeves are very stetchy. Over time, with regular use Sleeves may relax a little.

All S, M, 0 ,1, 2, 3, Sleeves now have a loop and button feature which can be used to make sleeves up to 1 inch tighter on the upper arm.

Skate style sleeves end at the wrist & do not have the top-of-hand cover

Size is given in inches.

  1. Great

    Unknown (Submitted on 30th May 2014)

    Slide on easily and should do the trick

  2. Size fit for a big person!

    Tracy (Submitted on 8th Aug 2013)

    I was a bit Leary about the fit since i am a big person but the sleeve fit very nice. It keeps the sun off my arm and keeps it cooler then if i were to wear a jacket. I love it!

  3. Glad I got these

    val (Submitted on 15th May 2013)

    These work very well by blocking out the sun and they are not too hot on most days. I have worn these with a bathing suit as well as on a run since my arms don't get a break from the sun at the beach and everything long sleeved is usually too hot.

  4. well constructed, comfortable fit

    Elizabeth, PA (Submitted on 8th May 2013)

    These are great to wear to the beach, and to engage in water sports like surfing, boogie-boarding etc.

    The stitching is excellent, the material fast drying, and the butterfly tattoo is very stylish.

  5. cool sleeves

    Annie, Sedona, Arizona (Submitted on 25th Apr 2013)

    Great fit, not too hot. They don't have constricting elastic at the top which most armwarmers. This makes them particularly comfortable to wear. It is worth measuring your arm size to make sure you buy the right size. The sizing chart was spot on. I will definitely be buying these again.

  6. on the links

    Sarah Purvis, Palm Springs, CA (Submitted on 2nd Feb 2011)

    Jut wanted to say thankyou for your help chosing the right size. They fit great.

    The girls had a giggle when I arrived with my butterfly "tattoos" the other day.
    Half way around the course, their arms were pinker than my sleeves and they were wishing i had brought my spare pair with me!
    I guess I know what I'll be buying for our secret santa
