Do you spend every summer day worrying about sunburn? 

With the hot sun beating down, there is a constant concern about keeping your skin protected and preventing skin cancers.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a stylish way to do that which didn’t rely solely on sunscreen and lurking in the shade? The LISSY brand was established to combat this problem.

Founder and designer Melissa Heffernan set about providing a range of sun protection clothing for women. With a background in nursing Melissa saw first hand the vast number of Skin Cancer and Melanoma cases affecting those of all ages. With New Zealand having the highest rates of Melanoma in the world, she was surprised at the lack of protective clothing on the market.

Designed with the sun’s damaging rays in mind, the range provides certified UPF 50+ protection, blocking 98% UVA and UVB rays. Each piece ideal for taking you from the beach to sidewalk and everywhere in between.
