Platypus Australia is one of Babylogy’s top picks for kids’ swimwear. They are consistently bringing out new one pieces, two pieces, sunsuits and accessories all designed to mix and match and catered to the Aussie climate.
Alfie and Nina is another one of our favourite swimwear designers for the wee ones. Their latest collection includes stripes, floral, nautical and retro-inspired styles, all chlorine proof with a UFP rating of 50+.
Missie by Munster Kids recently launched their latest range of swimwear, just in time for 2016. The popular Aussie brand has stuck to its beautiful palette of corals, lilacs, pale blues and black and white accents and includes one piece swimmers and rashies to match.
For the retro-lovers, Red Dolly Girls have swimmers for kids that are too cute not to want. They’ve got polka dots, stripes, halter necks and big bows for your pretty little pin-up girl.
Dress up your little men in something as equally stylish and adorable with Funky Trunks. Their Power Pants and Little Nippers range features favourites such as Batman, Captain America and Octonauts and come with our editor Nikki’s stamp of approval for their chlorine resistance. They also have a selection of girls’ one piece swimmers to match.
Babes in the Shade is a good one-stop shop for the entire family, especially the teenagers and men in your life. Their range caters to kids, ladies and men and all come in stunning colours and prints with UPF 50+ protection.
Speaking of the men in your life, Aussie owned Tom and Teddy have launched their range of father and son boardies and rashies that are too cute not to adore. Their marine motif collection includes beachwear for boys as young as 12 months up to XXL for the big boys.
For mums, Swimwear Galore is our top pick. They have swimmers to suit all shapes and sizes and their collection is not only flattering but also fun. Go there to find big name brands including Seafolly, Jets, Isola by Megan Gale and Tigerlily, along with plenty of options for dads and kids.
