Sun protection swimwear for kids & adults

At Babes in the Shade, we love splashing around in the summer sun - but we're also dedicated to protecting kids, babies, mums and dads from the harsh Aussie sun. That's why we've created an affordable range of stylish and high-quality sun safe swimwear to protect your skin and make sure fun in the sun never has to end!

Our UPF 50+ swimwear is made to go the distance for you and your little ones. From summer to summer, year in and year out, our swimmers will never stretch, wear or fade! Made from chlorine resistant fabric, our swimwear and rashies will stay in shape and keep the kiddies safe from the sun.

Along with the best chlorine resistant fabric swimwear has to offer, we also have some of the most unique, colourful and exciting patterns available online! Our seasonal collections are inspired by the relaxed, sun-soaked way of life here in Australia, as well as our nation’s love of the water. From bright florals to geometric patterns and nautical themes, we have designs to suit each and every personality.

For mums and dads looking for swimwear that's fun and protective against the sun's rays, we have our womens and mens swimwear range. To make shopping simpler, we've created swimwear "bundles"  so you'll be set to hit the sand in no time.

Shop sun protection swimwear online with Babes in the Shade! We offer safe and flexible online payment options including Paypal and Afterpay, so you can shop, swim and pay later. It's never been simpler to shop for swimmers!
