Summer Fun From Platypus Australia UV Protective Swimwear
Summer is here and if your kids are anything like mine, they’re going to be spending a lot of time over the next few months in swimsuits. Whether you’re going to the beach, the water park, your neighbourhood pool, or just setting up a sprinkler or water table in the backyard, your kids should not only have suits that are cute and comfortable, but ones that will protect them from the sun’s harmful rays. Platypus Australia produces high-quality, fashionable UV protective swimwear for kids — infant through teens — in a variety of mix-and-match patterns, colors and styles.
Platypus Australia’s sun-safe swimwear and rash guards ensure that the kid wearing them receives maximum sun protection. Platypus Australia was formed in 1996 by two mothers that know just how hard it is to apply sunscreen to kids on the move! They realized that there was a demand for kids bathing suits and clothing that would protect children from the sun’s damaging rays and still be comfortable and cool. The company’s mission is to educate parents, children and industry representatives of the importance of protecting children against the sun’s damaging rays, trying to prevent skin cancer in later life. Each Platypus Australia item blocks out at least 97.5% of harmful ultraviolet radiation, making them one of the safest swimsuit lines on the market.
Platypus Australia’s swimsuit lines — for babies, girls and boys — are designed to be mixed-and-matched. Each line has multiple styles of tops, shirts, rash guards, tanks, shorts, sunsuits, briefs, hats, cover-ups and accessories that all coordinate, so your child can pick the type of suit they feel the most comfortable wearing. Collections come in adorable prints like seashells, lobsters, flamingos and regatta. You can shop online by collection or by type/style of suit. Sizing ranges from infants all the way up to kid’s size 14. And no worries mama, there are even some swimsuits and rash guards for women.
Quality and Service
Platypus Australia strives to achieve high quality garments and sun protective swimwear with good fit, at affordable prices, backed by fast and friendly service. Platypus Australia is made with LYCRA® because of its amazing shape-retention, maximum breathability and most importantly, its ultra chlorine resistance properties. These fun colorful suits won’t fade in the sun or even after dips in the pool and will hold their shape without being stretched after multiple wears. And just because these swimsuits for babies and kids come from the other side of the world doesn’t mean you can’t get them for your own little sun worshipers. Easy shipping is available to both the U.S. and Canada… plus, it’s free if you spend over $80.
