Kids Swimwear Review: Elly La Fripouille!

If you asked your ballet mad 3 year old to design a swimsuit, it would probably look a little something like this…


Yes, that’s a UVA protective swimsuit WITH a little tutu. All thanks to the gorgeous French kids swimwear brand Elly La Fripouille.  Oh those French people, always so fashionable, non?  We tested out a one piece swimsuit and swim shirt on a recent trip to Vietnam and here’s what we thought:

What’s good…

  • Stylish designs ranging from one piece swimsuits to rash vests.
  • Mega sun protection – all are UPF50+, the highest rating.  
  • UV Protection whether they are wet or dry
  • Easy to take on and off.  The one piece swimsuits have a zip at the back to make them easier to remove.
  • Fasteners at the bottom so you can remove a nappy easily or have them go to the toilet quickly. Trust me – a lifesaver!
  • Well made, quick drying and easy to wash
  • All suits are eco-friends, no extra chemicals are added to the fabric


  • They aren’t super cheap BUT they are excellent quality and will last you a long time.  

How can I buy one?

  • The good news is they deliver all over the world, with free shipping on orders USD$55 and over. The Just Dance swimsuit is available in 3 sizes and is approx. GBP 25. The Just Dance swim shirt is available in 2 sizes and is approx. GBP 21.
  • Even better, quote discount code BLOGSUN for a further 20% off discount

In conclusion!

Do yourself a favour, if you aren’t already dressing your kids in one piece swimsuits or rash vests over a swimming costume, you should be.  If I could turn back the clock and tell my younger self to cover up and slather on the factor 50 I would. It helps that brands like Elly La Fripouille are making all in one suits my kids actually want to wear.  Now I just need a good adult vest!


Disclosure – Jetlag & Mayhem was sent some suits to review. I was not paid for this review and this is all my opinion.
