Swimwear Edit For Girls & Boys

There’s something about kids swimwear that makes me go a bit weird. I don’t know why, it’s just that every year since I started having children, I’ve become obsessed with finding the perfect swimming costume or pair of trunks.

We’re talking DAYS of internet trawling.

Why such bizarre behaviour? I’m sure that there’s something to be said for the fact that on holiday your kids are wearing them pretty much constantly, so you sure do see a lot of them. You’ll also inevitably end up taking lots of photos, so I think you remember them in way that you don’t so much with other clothes.

Essentially I think my fixation comes from there just being so many really bad ones.  It always feels like a real challenge, (I love a challenge), especially for the boys. Lime green hibiscus print board shorts anyone?!

Well, part of my aim with Minford is to take the time out of all the endless trawling, and to present you on a proverbial platter, the best of what’s out there right now.

So today I give you my definitive kids swimwear edit for the summer. You can thank me from the beach in August.
