As a beach-loving family we’ve been through a lot of swimwear, and together with lots of time at the swimming pool and weekly swimming lessons all the girls need good quality swimwear – even my toddler. Yet, while a healthy dose of Vitamin D is essential for building strong and healthy bones, we also need to ensure that children aren’t overexposed to the sun.
So it was exciting to discover Sunuva, a gorgeous collection of swimwear for children, from babies to young teens that’s made from quality Italian fabric providing full SPF50+ protection against the sun.
Swimwear from Sunuva
Created by two Mamas, Sunuva swimwear is a stylish collection of one-piece swimsuits, bikinis, rashies, swimshorts, board shorts and floatation swimwear for boys and girls, from babies right up to teenagers.
Like adults, kids need swimwear that not only tolerates the chlorine from the pool, but also protects your children’s delicate skin against the harsh effects of the sun. Baby’s and toddler’s skin is five times thinner than an adults, so it’s super important to do all you can to protect their skin from the sun whenever they’re outside, especially in swimwear.
The whole range of Sunuva swimwear does exactly that, offering the highest UV sun protection with swimwear made from quality Italian fabric that is SPF 50+ protection, without compromising on quality or style.
The swimwear is such good quality, you can tell the difference as soon as they put them on. The clasps all close firmly so there’s no risk of them coming undone while they’re swimming or playing in the water. So too, the ties on the swimwear are all made from really good quality material so they don’t untie during kid’s active swimming or playing at the beach.
Even in children’s swimwear, you-get-what-you-pay-for, so while inexpensive bathers might be an attractive option, during the Summer months they will be in water so often, including the wash, that the better the quality – the longer they will last. And believe me, once they begin to frey or fade, your child will not want to wear them!
The Sunuva swimwear range is some of the most stylish I’ve seen for kids, with halter necks, bandeaus, one piece swimsuits, bikinis and frills they are just so gorgeous, the girls love them.
My favourite aspect of Sunuva’s swimwear – apart from the super stylish prints and colours – is the fabric itself. This premium Italian fabric is so thick and smooth on the skin, it is sure to last them until they grow out of it. It is also fast drying, which is especially good for my young toddler who gets cold quickly when she’s out of the water.
The choice of swimwear prints for girls is really gorgeous, with lots of styles all in bright, summery colours that you and your kids will love. The boys swimwear range is really colourful and fun too, with shorts and rash vests in long and short sleeves in a huge range of prints and colours.
I love the collections that have similar styles that you can mix and match, like the Flamingo styles the girls have, with the rashie top, bikini, surf shorts and swimsuit all with the flamingo colours and motifs.
I recommend quality over quantity when it comes to swimwear – so I suggest getting one pair of bathers especially for swimming lessons, a rashie and rashie bottoms for outdoors at the beach or the pool and another swimsuit that’s suitable for both.
My girls here are all wearing the Pink Flamingo range: My toddler Marnie, three, wears the Pink Flamingo Swimsuit, Sasha, six, wears the Pink Flamingo Bikini and Ava, seven, wears the Pink Flamingo Surf Short with the Pink Flamingo Rash Vest.
Beach Wear from Sunuva
The Beachwear range really compliments the gorgeous swimwear. The clothing is a beautiful collection of playsuits, dresses, kaftans, jumpsuits, shorts and tops and lots more – from babies through to teenagers, for boys and girls.
Casual enough to wear over swimwear, but dressy enough to wear with sandals for a day out, the collection of beachwear and clothing is so stylish for girls and for boys, they will just love them.
I love the tassel details, hand-made embroidery and gorgeous summery colours and styles of all the dresses and playsuits. And as they’re all made from 100% cotton, they’re comfortable, lightweight and can easily be washed in the machine.
Marnie, three, wears the Sorbet Striped Dress, Sasha, six, wears the matching Sorbet Striped Jumpsuit, and Ava, seven, wears the Paisley Flutter Dress, all with gorgeous embroidery and tassels that the girls just love.
Sunuva also stock accessories essential for fun in the sun, including beach towels, beach bags, hats, caps, sunglasses, flip flops (thongs as we Aussies call them) and more, so you can get everything you need from the one online store!
