KONFIDENCE FLOATSUIT – LYCRA BUOYANT AID TO SWIMMING

Alongside the Starfish Aquatics Institute recommendation the most recent guidelines from Swim Wales are for the use of fixed/worn buoyancy aids. All Konfidence jackets and floatsuits are Class B: fixed/worn by the swimmer and provide buoyancy whilst the wearer is learning to swim and practising swimming technique. Particularly useful in pools with varying depths and with social distancing being observed by the teacher.

Our stylish and Chic Konfidence Floatsuits are British designed with a more traditional swimsuit approach in mind. They provide easily adjustable buoyancy for the wearer, with 8 easy to remove floats, to allow the freedom of movement, that arm bands restrict.

Made from quick drying soft close-knit Lycra, the all-in-one swimsuit design gives a number of great benefits with easy to adjustable buoyancy which allows you to tailor it to your child’s weight and ensure that they are not over or under supported in the water. The swimsuit design gives you the confidence and security in knowing that they will always have the buoyancy they need.

With 40+ SPF sun protection on all covered areas when worn outside. Quick-drying stretchy Lycra makes it easy to put on and take off your wriggly little ones.

The T-shirt top design on selected styles of Konfidence Floatsuits offers 40+ SPF sun protection across the shoulders and upper arms, as well as a zip on the back for ease of use.

Konfidence Float Suits Reviews

Eva Awarded The Konfidence Floatsuit 5/5

It is nicely packaged and I was very excited to test it out. I think it is a great concept as the float is already attached to the swimsuit which is very convenient. It also makes me less panicked about taking my daughter swimming knowing that she will be safe from wearing it. It is pretty self-explanatory and doesn’t require instructions. It was a good fit for my daughter and she was comfortable and happy wearing it. The float suit is easy to put on and take off. We had no issues with this at all. It was an effective buoyancy for my child whilst learning to swim. She was not afraid of me letting go when she realised that she couldn’t go under the water. I hadn’t needed to adjust the buoyancy on the few occasions we have been swimming so far but from what I can see and when taking the floats out to wash the swimsuit, they are easy to remove and replace back in. I have yet to adjust the floats as it was fine as it was. I felt confident having my child swim near me without me constantly holding on and she enjoyed the freedom of moving around herself knowing that she was fully supported by the floatsuit. The material dried fairly quickly. We have only used it in the swimming pool at our leisure centre so unable to make a comment on this, but good to know this delivers 40+ SPF sun protection when we use during the summer months. My daughter was happy and confident wearing it and enjoyed the freedom it gave her to explore. It is very lightweight and easy to pack and store. Ideal for taking away without taking up a lot of baggage space. We have used it a handful of times so far. We have only used it at our local swimming pool. I do agree this is perfect for any time when my child is swimming whether inside or on the beach. I think it’s important to support local and small businesses but at the end of the day, I would buy it even if it wasn’t made in the UK. I really liked how well it was designed and how easy it was for my daughter to wear. My daughter liked the freedom the floats gave her. The overall quality is good. It is good value for money for the purpose it intends. I would consider buying this as it worked well for my daughter and we didn’t need to add any add on floats as it already came as one. I would recommend this to friends with young children or with children who are less confident in the water so that they can get that confidence from knowing the float will keep them above water. Great  concept, fun and safe. I have enjoyed testing this product as has my daughter. We have had some lovely fun family swim sessions where she really enjoyed being in the water because of the confidence it gave her. Eva Tang – Ruby 2 years

I liked the quality of the material and the use of the lime green colour around the waist to break the monotony of the plain blue colour. I love that the floater incorporated in the swimming costume, therefore I don’t need to carry a floater whenever we go swimming. The instructions were very clear, easy to follow and easy to understand. This was not a perfect fit as he has a little room to grow into it, therefore he’ll probably use it until he’s 3 years old. He was comfortable in this and swam well. It was fairly easy but I’d have preferred that the zipper was slightly longer to make it easier to put it on. It did give my son confidence in the water. It boosted my son’s confidence despite him being a learner. I used all the floats as my son isn’t very confident yet. I did not need to adjust the buoyance as my son needed all 8 of them. This did work well helping him to stay afloat. I was very impressed by how quickly it dried. We used it in an indoor swimming area so I’m not very sure how effective the 40+ SPF would be, but will be trying it out this summer. The zip on the back was sturdy and easy to use. This really did help build my son’s confidence in the water.  He is a learner but he was happy to see he’s floating without wearing his floater. The material is light and folds away very nicely without creasing so would be ideal to take on your holiday or trips to the beach. We go swimming one Sunday every month.  This was mainly used in our local swimming pool. I’ll definitely use it on the beach but without the floaters because we only stay on the shore when we go swimming. I love it because of the SPF40 element, makes me happy to know my son is protected from the harmful sun rays. It is important to me this is British as ,I’m assured of good quality and genuine products when I buy British. I really liked the in-built floaters, made my work easier since I do not need to carry floaters now. My son loved the shark print on the costume. The quality is great and it worked very well, I would have loved it if the zipper was slightly longer. It is good value for money, however the price is on the higher side for me. I would consider buying it but the price would be a point of contention for me. £24.99 feels like it’s a bit expensive for a costume, especially because my son outgrows his clothes very quickly. I would recommend because the quality is really good. If they don’t mind the price, I would definitely tell my friends and to buy it. The quality is great and it worked very well. I also love that it is SPF 40. I would have loved if the zipper was slightly longer. The costume is well made using good quality material. The 8 floaters are really good and I’m pleased that I no longer need to carry a floater when we are going swimming, I love that it is SPF 40, gives me comfort to know that my son is protected. I would be happy to purchase it at £19.99. Caroline Mtongolo – Jonathan 22 Months

It was bright and appealing. It is a great idea for developing children’s confidence in the water. The instructions said to take out certain floats which were given a label but there was no clear diagram explaining which floats and the floats weren’t labelled. From the description I could guess which they were. This fitted my child perfectly. It did take Theo a little bit of getting used to wearing this. We found this fairly easy to put on and take off. My son is getting confidence in the water and this definitely helped support his confidence. I took a couple of floats out to ensure he was in the right position in the water according to the instructions. This definitely gave my child more confidence in the water. I found this dries quickly. I have not used this in the sunshine yet but I can see how this would be beneficial and give good SPF protection and would be useful for the beach and on holiday. The zip was easy to use and secure. This has really increased my son’s confidence in the water. It would fit easily in the suitcase however if you needed all the floats it would be a bit bulky. We used this once a week at the local pool.  It’s ideal for local swimming lessons and on the beach. It might be a bit trickier to take on holiday. It is important to me to support the UK economy. I really loved the confidence it gave my child in the pool. For my son the same and the ability to play more in the water as he felt safer. Great quality and good practical material. Definitely good value. I would buy this as it was great for the age of my child who isn’t yet learning swimming techniques. I would recommend. It was practical for taking my child to the local pool. I couldn’t use it in baby swimming lessons where they go under water briefly. I liked the colour and style and the practicality of the product. It is quick drying and great for giving children with little swimming practise confidence in the water. Rachael Fogg – Theo 16 Months
