With an impressive list of celebrity fans including Victoria Beckham, Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna, Sunuva offers stylish UV protective swimwear and cover ups for kids. Their bohemian yet modern prints – like this feather kaftan (£41.55) – are inspired by the owners’ own travels.
Paisley is one of this summer’s hottest trends, so this swimsuit is perfect for beachside fashionistas. This anti-UV one piece offers factor 50+ protection and never before has staying safe in the sun been so stylish! It is priced £36.
For adventurous tots who want to play out in the sun all day, Sunuva offers a range of rash guard cover ups for boys and girls. Made from breathable, quick dry fabric, these tops are certified by the British Skin Foundation. This Shark print t-shirt is in the sale at £26.59.
Another stylish cover up from Sunuva’s rash guard range. Regular readers will know how much I love nautical style and this boy’s long sleeved top is the chicest way to stay safe in the sun. It is priced £36.26.
While away in Jamaica we will be reviewing some swimwear from this brand, for the boys and I can’t wait to share it with you soon.
Another super kidswear brand that specialises in protective and stylish swimwear, Archimede is renowned for its ‘baby swim float suits’. This underwater print suit for boys (£37.02) frees up the arms, making it easier to learn how to swim. As the floats are detachable, it is utterly perfect for baby’s first swim and beyond.
This sweet striped and heart print girls’ buoyancy suit most certainly floats my boat! It is priced at £37.02 and again comes with detachable floats.
This cool 70’s style boys rash guard beach top offers maximum sun protection with UV50 fabric that is also kind to sensitive skin. It is £33.24

Protect your bambinos’ barnets in this mouthwatering printed swim hat. It is available up to 2 years and priced £8.31.
Italian designers are renowned for their fun, bold designs and this Monnalisa ‘Jerry’ swimsuit (£59) is no exception. It’s the small details that count and I love the cute pink bow on the reverse.
This tux-esque monochrome one-piece with bow detail is super glam! It is currently in the sale, priced at £47.74.
These super cool ‘superhero’ swim shorts (£18.89) are perfect for mini-action heroes. Made of chlorine and sea water resistant nylon, the vibrant colours won’t fade. Super indeed.
