Our measurements are consistent with Australian sizing standards and reflect age – age is often a better indicator than size charts. For example a size 4 is designed to fit a 4-5 year old. Don’t be tempted to buy a size too big so you will get two seasons’ wear. Buy the correct size and have it fitting snugly the following year instead. When rashies are too big for a child, they create drag through the water making it more difficult for the child to swim. It also puts unnecessary drag on the garment each time it is worn. If the garment you are purchasing is marked a generous fit, downsize if your child is smaller than average. Likewise if it is marked a small fit, upsize if your child is larger than others his/her age. All our rashies have extra length in the body so there is no need to upsize for extra length. Of course, any shirt that does not fit perfectly can be returned for a full refund or exchanged for a better fit.
CHILDREN’S SIZE GUIDE
This is the actual measurements of the rashies. The best instruction for choosing rashies is in our sizing notes above. Please refer to them as well as the sizing chart.
These are a smallish fit for girls. If your child has a generous derrière, upsize. Boys often have smaller bottoms, so they are pretty true to age. All our trunks have drawstring waists, so if in doubt, upsize. The trunks look fine if a little big (unlike rashies which look awful when too big).
The longer children are exposed to UV radiation and the more intense the UV radiation, the greater their risk of developing skin cancer later in life. Sun exposure during the first 15 years of life contributes significantly more towards developing skin cancer than equivalent sun exposure at any other time of life. In our harsh Australian climate, most children are unavoidably exposed to considerable amounts of solar radiation, which is why it is important adequate measures are implemented to protect children’s skin. The best means of protecting your children?s skin while they are exposed to UV light is to ensure they wear long sleeved, UPF50+ protective swimwear or clothing.
Clothing and swimwear with a UPF50+ rating offers much better protection against the sun than sunscreen. Sunscreen does not provide total protection against all UV rays. Regardless of the SPF, no sunscreen protects you completely. Even with proper sunscreen use, some rays get through, which is why using physical forms of sun protection is so important.
