SWT: Designing Performance Wear for Balanced Beachwear Practice

Vanessa da Graça Mendes, Mário Say Ming Kong, and Regina Aparecida Sanches
Abstract—In order to create a type of body art that relies on sun tanning, it’s essential to create a debate on what is a balanced UV exposure. While there are problems between lack of and excessive sun bathing, other threats to the well-being of the individual lay with the beaches’ biosphere, which may endanger the user as well. Acknowledging these circumstances is a necessary step in the process of making the perfect body suit for this kind of practice. As part of a good design process, it takes on the many challenges the intensive beach practitioner faces and incorporates them in the manufacturing process, looking for the required adaptions according to multiple factors.

Index Terms—Body art, colour behaviour, photochromic colorants, user centred design.
