  • I am about to order my 2nd order. My two year old daughter is still wearing her size 0 spotting dotti all in one that I bought her when she was 6 months old. It is still going strong, just gets a little more snug......

I just wanted to thank you for the amazing service I received from you.

The order arrived just one day after I placed it on your website.  The swimwear looks lovely and I can't wait to give it to my niece for her birthday.
Thank you for your wonderful service and I will certainly shop here again.

Just received my order of sunshirt, shorts and sunhat.   This is the 2nd time I have ordered as I purchased 2 years ago for both of my daughters and their sunshirts and bathers are still going strong (just outgrown)....
