For the last two years we’ve been blessed to be part of the Frugi Family. The perk of being a member of this rather exclusive family is that we get to sample their fantastic clothes each season. This month we were sent some rather funky swimwear for our little man to test to the max. He recently started swimming lessons and has been swimming with a SwimFin, so it seemed the perfect choice to choose a pair of Shark board shorts (£19) and a matching Shark sun safe rash vest (£16).
Faced with an incredibly sunny Sunday and a boy who loves the beach, we decided a trip to our favourite location was the perfect place to test M’s new super UPF 50+ rated board shorts and rash vest. The size 3-4 shorts are the perfect fit for our tall, yet slim nearly 4 year old, but the size 3-4 rash best came up a little small in the body, yet was a fantastic fit width wise. It’s so hard finding clothes that fit the height as well as width of our little man as he is very tall in the body with a small waist, but both items were not restricting at all. The material of both items is a fancy material that offers super sun protection, though this is not a replacement for sun screen, think of it more an extra barrier to help protect your little one’s skin.
Frugi clothes are always nice and bright, which mean M really stood out on the beach, so we could spot him at all times, even if he was only 50 yards from us. The shorts have built in mesh like all swim shorts, which makes them great for the beach or the pool and they are incredibly quick drying, as M discovered after a frosty dip in the sea.
I’m actually quite jealous that the shorts don’t come in my size as I am rather fond of the design, plus I have always fancied a little matching with my son.
