But as a parent, we know it can be hard to pick the right fit for your little one. We want them to feel comfortable and safe just as much as you do, so we've put together the answers to some frequently asked questions to help you out! Available in a range of styles and sizes, we'll help you find the perfect swim vest for your kids regardless of their age, confidence level or personality.
Q: What size Swim Vest does my child need?
A: While it's hard to be sure of the correct sizing without trying it on, the size guide below should help to give you an idea of the difference between our sizes and make sure that your child's swim vest fits perfectly.
Please note that while all size 1-2 Swim Vests come with a leg strap, this is not included on some 2-3 year vests or 4-6 year vests. Feel free to reach out to us if you're after more info about specific swim vest styles!
For children's swim products age is not always the best indicator to correct size, it's important to always take into account weight and measurements to ensure a good fit.
Size 1 - 2: 32 x 32 x 8 cm | 12.6 x 12.6 x 3.15 in, Max weight: 15kg / 33lbs

A: Our Kids' Swim Vests are tested to comply with the Consumer Goods Swimming and Floatation Aids Safety Standards 2017.

They are also not lifesaving devices and are to be used under constant supervision.
