I guess that's what makes the difference, that it's intended to get wet and not feel gross. I agree, a wet tee is not fun, so these make sense in that respect. But they don't generally point that out when trying to sell them. They just say oh, it'll block the sun so your little darling doesn't get fried, you neeeed them if you love your family! It is misleading advertising, IMHO, because if you're staying dry, normal clothes will usually be just fine. They'd be better if they were called "water wear" or something like that.
