Swim Vest size guide:

This sizing guide below will give you an idea of the difference between our sizes and allow you to select the right fit for you child taking into account weight and measurements as age is not always the best indicator of size for children's swim products.

Additional questions we receive regarding our Kids' Swim Vests can be found answered below:


Is the Swim Vest lifeguard approved?

Our Kids' Swim Vests are tested to comply with the Consumer Goods Swimming and Floatation Aids Safety Standards 2017. It's important to remember that our vests are designed for water familiarization, swimming tuition and water play, they are not United States Coast Guard (USCG) approved for boating nor are they a lifesaving device. They are to be used under constant supervision.


How do I best take care of and store my SUNNYLiFE Swim Vest?

Rinse the Swim Vest off under clean water after each use as extended exposure to chlorine and salt water can cause damage. Then when storing your Swim Vest ensure it is completely dry before packing it away in a cool, dry space.
