Boys Stylish Swimwear

We love all the adorable little swimsuits and ruffle butt bloomers for girls, but what about the boys!? How does a stylish mom find some cool swimwear for her little dude?  Moms of boys will tell you all the time that there is nothing cute for boys and they’re right, but that’s because stuff for boys shouldn’t be cute, it should be awesome.  If your boy (or you) no longer wants Nemo or a cute turtle on his chest then I have found a brand for boys that you will love! Sunuva is a fashionable UV protective swimwear line for kids and their styles are pretty darn awesome.

Boys Board Shorts

Right now we are living in Costa Rica and so my son lives in his board shorts, I mean literally lives in them and sometimes falls asleep in them! A lot of boys that live at the beach all summer and their board shorts serve double duty as regular shorts too. Why bother changing?  Throw on a t-shirt and your little guy is good to go! Even if you don’t live at the beach, I am sure you are planning a summer vacation, day trips to the local pool or maybe your little explorer is heading off to camp, either way he’ll need something to swim in.

If Sun Protection Is Your thing

Sunuva has some of the most stylish rash guards for boys I have seen. These rash guards keep it boyish fun with prints like an indian chief, aliens, chili peppers and blue skulls. Not just stylish but protective too. Sunuva swimwear is made from the highest quality UPF 50+ fabric, which blocks out more than 97% of the sun’s harmful rays and meets even the most stringent Australian and New Zealand UV guidelines.


Sunuva Boys

I am normally not a fan of the skull thing on children’s clothing, however this print is done in such a playful way that it looks really cool, and not scary.  If board shorts are too long for you son, then they offer the swim shorts which are a shorter cut and keep your little boy more of a little boy longer;) If your boy is still a wee little one, don’t worry their are plenty of fun shark, fish and scuba diver prints to choose from. They also make these floatsuits for those that are still learning to swim.


The Sunuva Travel Savvy Moms

The Sunuva brand is a global savvy brand that started in the United Kingdom by two moms that were on Holiday and literally met at the pool. They began discussing how they could not find stylish protective swimwear that they liked or looked good on their vacation pictures, because let’s face it, the pictures matter;)

“We started a journey and set out on a mission to create a swimwear and beachwear line which was not only super stylish and cool but also kept our kids safe in the sun.

We wanted to encompass a boho style which we both love and at the same time creating a quality product with a particular function. We could not find any prints we liked so we decided to design those too. Our latest collection is inspired by bohemian travel as exotic holidays are a passion we both share.”

Clearly, these are two Moms after my own heart.  They have found a way to bring style, kids and travel all together as one great brand.


Boys love their big sisters! My daughter was also sent a dress from the Sunuva girls collection. It’s light weight and the perfect beach cover up after a day at the beach or the pool.

Sunuva can be found in major department stores such as Harrods, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Barneys, and many independent boutiques all over the world.  As well as luxury international holiday resorts such as the Four Seasons. You can also shop their online store, which ships all around the world!
