This Bond-Eye Boys - Rockin Stars Star Patch Long Sleeve Rashie from Zodee is fun, able to be paired with lots of options on the bottom half and makes for a sun-safe day outside.
A slim fitting boy's swim short, this option from Little Red Fish is available from size 1 - 14 years. These would be the perfect choice if your little swimmer is getting a bit serious about their time in the water, or if dive bombing is really their style.
Hands down my favourite type of swimwear for small kids is an all in one zip up rashsuit. It feels like the right level of sun protection (the fabric of this one is SPF50+); nothing can fall down or slip off. It isn't so easy when they need to go to the toilet, but you get used to making that work! This one is really affordable, and cute to boot.
Not Guilty Shark Bay Rash Suit, $29.99 from Farmers.
A float suit offers an extra level of safety above regular swimwear, with floatation devices sewn into the swimsuit to enhance buoyancy in the water.
The Konfidence Float Suit (Clownfish) is a great option at $44.99 - and the buoyancy level is adjustable too.
How cool are these Bond-Eye Boys Electric Tattoo Shorty Boardies, designed for sizes 8 to 12. They have a stretchy waistband and adjustable ties so are easy to wear in the water, no big worries about the ties slackening off! With pocket detail, these are a practical and useful item for your bigger or littler guy to wear this season.
