Review: Folpetto swimwear for chic and practical kids UV swimwear
In the last few days one of the things I’ve been talking to friends about is UV swimwear. It’s about finding the best brands and the cutest styles. And that’s why Folpetto has come up in conversations.
This summer I’ve tested brand new UV swimwear brand Folpetto, started by a London mum, and the brand offers chic and practical pieces that are ideal for holidays in the sun.
Folpetto launched its first collection of swimwear for boys and girls aged one to eight in June. The swimwear is made of recycled fabrics from regenerated fish nets and offers UPF 50+ sun protection.
I think the girls swimwear is particularly cute, featuring ruffles and bows. There are girls swim pants, bikinis, swimsuits and rash guards in peach and ivory and dusty blue and ivory. Many pieces would be easy to mix and match, which makes the brand great for parents looking to buy several pieces before a holiday.
One of my favourites from the collection is the Isabella swim pants (£25) we received to review, and I think this would look gorgeous with the chic, long-sleeved Lucie rash guard (£35). The rash guard could also be worn with other swim pants in the collection, and there are also front zip rash guards in unisex styles that look very practical for wearing with different swimwear and easy to put on.
The fabrics used are not only eco-friendly but also practical since they are ultra thin, chlorine resistant and quick drying. The Tommaso fish print swim shorts (£35) Big Boy received to review has been quicker to dry than his other swim shorts, and it feels different from other swim shorts since the material has a touch of stretch.
What I like best about Folpetto is the cute designs with quick-drying fabrics with UV protection. I’m a big fan of rash guards and the use of fabrics with UV protection as I think it makes it easier to protect my children in the sun. In fact, I bought rash guards for myself last year too as it simply makes complete sense to be better protected on the beach.
Some pieces in the Folpetto collection are currently 20% off in the end of summer sale
