Summer is here and with the ‘Big School Holidays’ looming we will all be spending our long hot days outside, basking in the glorious sunshine… Oh wait, this is Britain, famed for it’s grey, wet and this year, decidedly unpredictable weather. But we will surely make the most of it anyway…
Sun safe swimwear is perfect for us, ultimately I like my life to be as easy as possible so whether in this country or abroad having UPF50+ inbuilt in the swimming gear means I can be sure that those bits of the children are safely covered. The less room for error the better as far as I am concerned.
The Baby Swim Shop is a new online webshop offering a full range of children’s swimwear. They cater from babies up to age 11 and stock everything you could need for swimming at your local pool, swimming lessons to seaside holidays.
Before placing my order on the website I had a few queries and they we answered speedily and concisely. The website is clear and well organised with lots of hints and tips for sun and water safety. My order also shipped quickly and arrived within a couple of days.
Elsa, who knows her own mind and what she wants to wear these days, opted for the Platypus Australia Bloom UPF50+ Fitted Short Sleeve Rash Vest with Boyleg set. This compromises a short sleeved rash vest and coordinating shorts. We opted for age 3-4y as the next size up is 5-6y but in hindsight we should have gone bigger. I would recommend sizing up if you are unsure.
I went for the Platypus Australia Regatta UPF50+ Baby Sunsuit for Ted and given that he is a bit of a chunk, I went for the 18-24m size. This was the right choice, again I would recommend sizing up if you want the to last.
Elsa’s Bloom set costs £34.95 and Ted’s Regatta one piece is £28.95. The Baby Swimming Shop offers free UK postage on orders over £50. Pop on over and have a browse at all the fabulous swimming gear on offer. If you do it with a cocktail in hand you may even feel like you’re on holiday (use your imagination!).
