Konfidence SPLASHY™ SWIMSUIT MADE WITH E-FLEX™

To compliment the Splashy™ swim nappy we have our Splashy™ swimsuit. As with the Splashy™ nappy we use the same lovely soft, flexible materials with and secure round the waist and leg hems and made of recycled materials. Our all new Splashy™ swimsuit is also available in our three most popular styles; Fergal, Seabiskit and Joni. All them welcome our efforts to reduce the use plastics. Warming in the winter on the beach and in the pool but also sun protective with the highest UVPF of 50+. Designed in Cornwall and in partnership with the Swimming Teachers Association it’s our softest most comfortable baby swimsuit for use at home in the garden, on holiday in the pool or beach or in baby swim classes.

The technical stuff: All our Splashy range is constructed using our own e-Flex™ material which is a combination of stretchy Nylon, soft comfy plush inner and a waterproof sandwich filling of recycled plastic. For the Splashy Swimsuit we use stretchy and close fitting Lycra for the arm and leg hems for added comfort and fit. There’s is a zip, velcro and popper arrangement closing the back and the inside is a lovely soft plush for added comfort.

When this arrived looked colourful and well packed.  Loved the design so bright and colourful. Great fit I had the 9-12 month and it fitted perfectly.  However when I buy this again I will buy a size bigger so that it lasts longer. She was very comfy in it and kept her warm when in the sea and pool.  It fitted to her ankles and wrists so saved lots of money and time with not having to apply so much sun cream . We were at the beach for 6 hours and she didn’t burn. It also dries fast whilst wearing it so we didn’t have to worry about wrapping her in a towel after leaving the water. We have an outdoor pool at home and she used it almost every day. We also used it 4 times on the beach whilst on holiday. As stated we used this on the beach while on holiday and gave good protection.  We also used it in our outdoor pool and it offered her protection from the sun and kept her warm in the pool for longer than a normal suit. it was very easy to get on and off and good fit nice and snug. Using the new e-FLEX material is helping the planet and this is great and it didn’t alter the quality of the suit so a great idea. i washed it with my normal washing and it dries very fast on the line. Loved the bright colours and the fact that it offered full body UV protection   it meant we could play and not worry about sun cream and sand mixing when on the beach. Great soft material and very fast drying. Great value as it saved us a fortune on sun cream and meant that molly could have longer in the pool and sea before getting cold. I have already looked into buying one for my 2 year old and will be buying one for next summer for molly. I would recommend for all the reasons above. Excellent product which provided hours of fun. Great experience.  Perfect summer suit for babies and toddlers. Offers comfort and protection when playing in the water and on the beach. Aimee Hamer – Molly 10 Months

Loved the bright and fun design and the feel of the swimsuit, it was much thicker than expected. Great design. I did size up as my son is quite big for his age and wears some 12 month clothing. It fitted him but with room to grow. He enjoyed wearing this. During the testing period i was unable to determine whether it was good protection from the sun. However we have a trip to the beach in a week and I am definitely packing this! My son wore this once. Our local pool is not yet open so it had to be tested in the bath and garden. As mentioned above though it is going to get a lot of wear on the beach next week. Worn In the garden as the local pool not yet open. As it is a bit thicker than most swimsuits for children on the market I am really looking forward to using this when the  local pool does open and think that it will help him enjoy his swim lessons rather than being affected by the cold. I really noticed that a lot of thought had gone into making this as comfortable for the child as possible. There was no risk of catching skin on the zip and the soft inside felt lovely. I think it is great that this is made of e-FLEX material using recycled plastic and protection our planet.  This is very important to me and I think it’s so important to choose the option of recycled material products when available. This was very easy to launder. The warmth Is a huge benefit to me due to our cold local pool which really put my daughter off swimming when this age. I really haven’t found a fault with it yet! Looking forward to a more thorough test at the coast next week. Good value and it is cheaper than equivalent products on the market. I will probably buy one in the next size up when needed. I would recommend especially for those with younger babies just starting swimming lessons who might be affected by the cold water in the pool. I expect to get a lot of use out of this product and like how it offers warmth in the cold water but also has sun protection. I would like a size 12-18 month and 18-24 month (rather than 12-24) as I do think that there is a lot of difference between a 12 month old and 24 month old in sizing. Although it fits well now and the stretch will ensure it fits for a while it is hard to know whether it will fit for another 12 months. It seems to be a common issue too (Not exclusive to Konfidence) that boys swimsuits are blue or green. However as a safety point, blue and green swimsuits cannot easily be seen underwater if a child were to slip under. There are some other colours on the boys designs but I’m not sure whether they would be enough to be seen. I would like to see a red design suitable for boys. Overall I am really impressed with this product. A lot of thought has gone into every detail and I think that my son will get a lot of use out of it. Fiona Street – James 9 Months

It was well packaged and delivered in a timely manner.  It feels soft, yet thicker than a standard swimming suit which is great for British weather. Lovely well-made design. I love the colours, we have the octopus and crab design. Lovely bright blue body with darker blue sleeves. Larger octopus and crab picture on the front with smaller sea creatures on the sides. Rainbow stripped neck collar. As I said before it is thicker than standard swim suits. We have the x-large size which is the 12-24 months size, for our 12 month old son. It fits him well. He is also in 12-18 months size clothes so true to size. He did enjoy wearing this as it was a comfy swimming suit which is easy to get a child into and out of. I like the popper at the top of the zip to help stop it coming undone. This did protect my son in the sun.  No sun burn under the swimming suit and easy to put factor 50 cream on around it. So no problem with sunburn. worn outside in the paddling pool 3 times and in the bath twice to test it further. Due to Covid swimming pools have been closed. I will be taking it on holiday and after using in the garden I have no concerns about the fact that it will protect him from the sunshine. It worked very well in the paddling pool, keeping him warm in cooler British weather. Then on sunnier days it protected his skin from the sun. the inner lining is lovely and soft, the zip was easy to do up with the popper at the top stopping the zip coming undone. It was a soft outer fabric and easy to get on and off. I think this is a great innovation to use recycled plastic filling, the more we can do to reuse and recycle and protect the planet for our children the better to make such a useful and soft swimming suit. it washed well and we line dried it which worked well, it dried as quickly as the other clothes on the line. I love how soft the inner lunging is, I like the cute octopus design and the bright blue colour. This is a well-made product that is worth the money, especially  as its made from recycled plastic for the filling. This is certainly worth the money. I would buy this as it is well-made, my son enjoys wearing it, it protects him from the sun, is warm and made from recycled materials. I would recommend for all the reasons above. Only thing to note is there is some evidence that if children’s swimming suits are made from bright colours reds etc if they were ever to slip into a pool they would be visible in a bright colour when they are less visible in a blue swimming suit. So it helps lifeguards for brighter costumes. Ruth Smith – Alex 12 Months
