I have purchased two of these over time for my now 2.5 year old. Sizes purchased are small and medium. She graduated to medium at the beginning of the summer ( now October) and there is still tons of room in it. Small was in use from summer when she was 1 until now.
She has always been very slim, so both have been rather too wide for her BUT it allows more 'warmed water' to collect around her so she has always been toasty when she gets out of the pool. They have survived weekly swimming lessons and outdoor pool all day wear ( which includes food stains, paving stones rubbed along bum, grass stains, slide use and anything else messy or destructive a toddler can find). They have also been washed weekly with a normal wash cycle. Neither show any signs of wear and tear!
One point to note, I recommended these to a friend and let her try her son in them. Our children are similar size except he is a bit longer. Boys need a larger size! Poor little man had a bit of a nappy wedgie going on, so needed the next size up. She loves them because without these suits her little man turns blue after 5 mins, but can easily last over an hour now- which is great because he is a water baby.
Both children slip into them easily ( and out), when it gets difficult to get them in, that's the cue to move them up a size! I do not really recommend these for garden use in very hot weather as I think child would overheat, but for public pools or cooler days outdoor they work fantastically well.
I will be buying them for my daughter until they no longer fit her and will get them for my new addition, once he hit the small size ( because I cannot be doing with newborns and zips!) Plus he is a chubba so suits will be a lot more cozy.
To the manufacturer / stockist- I would like gender neutral colours so kids can pass these on. I have super hero sun suits and most toys are gender neutral so if these came in a green / orange or teal colour that would be awesome.
