Stylish and sun-safe swimwear

Platypus Australia is a leading UV swimwear brand, offering a selection of high-quality protective swimwear for babies, toddlers and kids (including rash guards, swimsuits, trunks and matching beachwear) ranging from sizes 0 to 14. Not only is Platypus Australia swimwear stylish with mix-and-match pieces in lots of styles, patterns and colors, but the swimwear is sun-safe and ensures maximum sun protection with a UPF 50+ rating, blocking out at least 97.5% of harmful ultraviolet radiation. That’s a win-win in our book.

Platypus Australia Kids Swimwear #AwayWeGoPlatypus Australia Kids Swimwear #AwayWeGoPlatypus Australia has an incredible selection of swimwear and beachwear for girls and boys, from babies through teens. The styles and patterns are fun and fashionable ranging from solid colors to watermelon or camouflage. Each pattern comes in a variety of styles such as rash guards, two-piece bikinis, trunks, hats, board shorts, singlets, sun shirts, jackets and tankinis.

Mom and kid-approved

I love the colors, patterns and style selection, but I was even more impressed with how thick, well-made and sturdy the Platypus Australia suits were. The seams are flat, so they don’t irritate the kids’ skin and there are no inside tags to scratch or bother them. The elastic on the suit easily stretched over a swim diaper and didn’t pinch. The fabric was quick-drying and breathed well. My picky preschooler didn’t complain once about wearing long-sleeves on a hot day at the beach and this mom loved that we could forgo wrestling him multiple times a day to reapply sunscreen on his arms and torso.  Platypus Australia Kids Swimwear #AwayWeGoPlatypus Australia Kids Swimwear #AwayWeGoI chose the UPF 50+ Sunshirt LS in Sky and the UPF 50+ Swim Shorts in Palm Tree (both part of the Azure collection) for my son. We both loved the outfit. He’s growing so fast that I ordered a size up than he currently wears so he could wear it as long as possible. The shirt’s a little big, but it was so comfortable on him and gave him a lot of room to move around and play without being restrictive or too tight.

I’m tempted to order it in every size it comes in so she has one for the next eight years of her life — I love it that much. And you know it’s stylish when super trendy celebrities like Jessica Alba are dressing their kids in the same suit!  Platypus Australia Kids Swimwear #AwayWeGoPlatypus Australia Kids Swimwear #AwayWeGoFor older girls, I absolutely love the Castaway Collection with its bright reds and blue ruffles. Older boys (and husbands) will love the Turq Camo Collection.
