Bring on the sun, but don’t compromise on style or safety; Splash About launches its new baby and children’s designs for summer 2019. With Sun & Sea suits and a range of FloatSuits, all with UPF50+ as standard, children’s delicate skin will be protected against harmful UVA and UVB rays both in and out of the water.
The spring/summer 2019 collection is themed around nursery rhyme prints, children’s poems and songs; with beautiful designs in striking bold blues, warm red, pastel pinks, powder blues and yellows. In addition, Splash About is extending its ever-popular vibrant Shark Orange and delicate green Dragonflies prints to now include UV sunsuits, UV wetsuits and FloatSuit products.
“Sun safety is non-negotiable for babies and young children, but practical doesn’t mean you have to comprise on style,” comments Bernadette Spofforth, Managing Director of Splash About. “The SS19 range is our largest collection to date, with seven key prints across our entire product range; from the essential swim school approved Happy Nappy to warming wetsuits, UV protection swim wear and learn-to-swim FloatSuits. Our premium fabrics won’t fade in the sun or after prolonged exposure to chorine, the only issue you’ll have is too much choice!”
The UV Range
Babies, especially those with sensitive skin or eczema will stay protected in a UV All-In-One; made from soft, lightweight Nylon Lycra with a high neck and full body coverage it provides sun, sand and wind protection – and there’s also back poppers for a quick change. RRP £22
The Toddler UV Sunsuit is perfect for a beach holiday with maximum sun protection in or out of the water. Three-quarter sleeves and legs along with a high neck protects vulnerable young skin, and the zip-up back makes for easy changing. This suit is comfortable and designed to keep little ones cool in the sun but because it’s more fitted and doesn’t create drag in the water, it’s great for swim lessons too. RRP £22
Available from 12 months to 6 years take a dip with the UV Sun & Sea Wetsuit; practical yet stylish, ideal for a staycation or chilly seas and beaches. Made with soft neoprene to maintain core body warmth which means longer play in or out of the water! RRP £24.99
Splash About’s award-winning FloatSuits offer flexibility for all swim abilities, from gaining confidence in the water to starting to swim independently. They are quick drying, lightweight and comfortable to wear all day around the pool. What’s more the FloatSuits automatically position children naturally in the water for learning-to-swim and because children are not reliant on holding onto floats or on arm bands which can be restrictive, they have more freedom to move in the water. RRP from £24.99 – £26.99
Splash About’s collection provides UPF50+ the highest sun protection found in fabric, but we recommend always using a high factor sun cream for where our beautiful swimwear doesn’t quite cover.
