Many families up and down the country are preparing for their eagerly anticipated holiday abroad. With packing lists, passports, Covid passes and other vacation-related admin on parents’ minds, the kids’ holiday wardrobe is likely to have fallen behind.
And even children can appreciate that up there with the all-important documentation, days spent jumping, swimming and splashing in the pool means good swimwear is also essential.

Given the nature of the product, it’s also worth looking out for any additional sun protecting factors, but ensure you also slather on a high factor sun cream.
