One of my earliest memories involves a waterhole, a set of Smurf floaties and an old Holden ute. We had just moved to Darwin and my dad was convinced that we wouldn’t survive very long if we didn’t know how to swim. He drove us out to a place he was told had no crocs and threw my brother and I in the water. It could have been terrifying, but I lapped it up. I LOVED the water from that moment on (I’m certain the Smurf floaties gave me a confidence boost!). It must be in the genes too, as my kidlets also love the water!

Of course, if you are going to be lounging around a pool, a swimming hole or the beach this summer you will need a good pair of swimmers. I’ve found that practicality is essential, as you don’t want them falling down at an unforgiving moment. At the same time, style is essential rather than an optional extra.

As such, I have rounded up a plethora of swimwear labels for your perusal. I’m certain you will find a favourite pair of togs within my selection that will suit your requirements and a style that will suit your little one. And remember – like shoes, you can NEVER have too many bathers!
