Planning a sunny getaway soon? Don’t forget to order some sun protective swimwear for your little ones before you go. Sun protection is extremely important now more than ever as the sun rays are very damaging.

Platypus Australia offers a wonderful selection of high quality sun protective swimwear for girls and boys (including rash guards, swimsuits, matching beachwear and swimmers) ranging from sizes 0 to 14. Their swimwear offers maximum sun protection ith a UPF 50+ rating, blocking out at least 97.5% of harmful ultraviolet radiation, meeting the strict criteria of both the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) and the British Standard for ultraviolet radiation.

We received a few pieces from their collection and they are wonderful! Love the high quality, durable material and how comfortable and stylish they are. Their mix-and-match styles and designs are fun and perfect for little ones.


Kids can play in the sand, go swimming and enjoy the sun while being protected. All pieces offer a good fit and the breathable fabrics are just what they would want to wear while enjoying the heat/sun, they are also  chlorine resistant and quick drying.

Something else I like is that there are no uncomfortable labels sewn in. The label is printed inside the centre back providing added comfort and strength, great for children with sensitive skin.

Be sure to visit their website to see all of their products and to shop online, they ship to Canada and the US as well. I can’t wait for the summer and our next family holiday!
