With all the sunny Easter holiday beach pics I keep seeing and the absolutely gorgeous weekend we just had, it's got me thinking all about swimwear for our little ones. I absolutely love kids swimwear and when we have a holiday planned, it's the first part of their wardrobe that I love buying and packing. There's always so many cute prints, it's hard to choose only one or two! Here are my current picks from our swimwear collection for girls and boys. We stock from ages 12 months to 14 years in certain pieces.
Let's hear it for the boys...
So back tracking a bit, I know I said buying kids swimwear is really fun...I actually meant for girls 🙈 to be honest, sometimes boys swimwear can be a bit boring. However these amazing fish print swim shorts from Spanish brand Curumi Swim are so colourful; and these beautiful deep blue ones from French designers Sunchild even come with their own handy carry bag! What's not to love?! I can't wait to get my two little men beach ready now, the question is...do I go for matching or not?!
Now as I kind of let slip before, it's the girls swimwear I really love & even though I may be just a little bit biased I reckon we have a gorgeous selection here at Lily and Fred. Curumi & Sunchild both bring the European flavour, with pretty pastel shades, frills and beautiful prints.
I am also really excited about California brand Bowie James. Created by four mums, their designer premium swimsuits are absolutely stunning and even made from recycled materials! We're really proud to be their first UK stockist!
If you follow us on Instagram you would have seen that we just had a fun mini-break to Cornwall. The temperature was only just into double digits on the beach (I definitely wasn't going anywhere near my swimmers, although bizarrely I did pack them - optimistic me thinks 😂) however as we all know, kids don't care one bit about the weather, they just love to be by the sea, running about in their beach gear and paddling in the rock pools!! I even managed to grab a few snaps of my own daughter in her Bowie James Dream Catcher two piece and the Curumi Swim blush pink swimsuit...
