Our swim hats are made of high quality chlorine resistant stretch nylon knit with quick drying ability. Swim hats are best for use in a wet environment - at the beach, lake, swimming pool or splashing about under the hose! If you are looking for a hat for everyday use - we always encourage using our Cotton hats instead (all our hats excluding our range of Swim Hats). A cotton rich hat will be much cooler for everyday use.
We can see this looking stand-out stylish paired with a navy, pale blue, red or pink swimsuit! Tiny watercolour flowers in the most beautiful colours is so feminine and pretty. Looks especially great with our Marine or Slate Rash Vests. Available in Legionnaire, Ponytail Bucket and Wet Bag.
IDEAL FOR: Babies, crawlers and toddlers still taking naps, being held a lot and not very mobile yet. However, we do have bigger sizes for those who prefer this style.

One fact you can be sure of - no two heads are the same! ALWAYS measure your child's head before purchasing to ensure getting the accurate size.
Step 1: Distract the child with a toy or food (so they don't try and help you!).
Step 2: Use a measuring tape to take measurement. Otherwise use a ribbon to take the size then use a ruler to find the measurement.
Step 3: Purchase the size closest to your childs measurement. Our hats are very stretchy and will grow up to 4cm.
FOR EXAMPLE: The child measures 41cms, you will need the 42cm size that will stretch another 4cms up to 46cms - giving plenty of future wear. Purchasing the next size up would be too large and block the childs vision.
