Swimming Togs

Stuff to splash about in and keep safe in the sun.

SPLASH & FUN

Tanglin Shopping Centre (#03-48)

19 Tanglin Road

Singapore 247909

T: (+65)6733 1465 / 9863 1310

Going on a boat tour in Vietnam and need a proper life jacket for your child? This is the place to go to.  They stock all sizes from child to adult (minimum kids weigh is 15lbs, although arguably, something is better than nothing if they are below this weight).  They also sell rashies for adults (O’Neil and quite nice) as well as all-in-one swimmers for little people.

Opening Times: 11am-6pm Mon-Sat.  Closed Sun

VILLEBREQUIN

Kids 21

Forum Shopping Centre (#02-24)

583 Orchard Road

Singapore 238884

www.villebrequin.com

T: +65 6737 2306

Look like Daddy and buy something from their eye wateringly expensive ‘junior’ line. Prices start at $170 for children’s trunks (ages 2-12).  Big Dada’s togs weigh in at a hefty $260, making them almost feel like good value – he will certainly wear them for longer and probably even pay for them himself.  BTW: We think this is about to close down, so keep your eye’s peeled for any bargains (as if).

Opening Times: 10.30am-7.30pm Mon-Sat; 11am-6pm Sun

THE CHILDREN’S SHOWCASE

Loewen Gardens

81 Loewen Road

Dempsey Village

Singapore 248845

T: (+65) 9151 6741

If you want the Villebrequin look without splashing too much cash, head down to The Children’s Showcase in Loewen where they do a great knock-off, with matching little and large pieces priced at $79 and $129 respectively.

Opening Times: 9.30am-5pm Mon-Fri; 9.30am-4pm Sat. Closed Sun

OCEAN PARADISE

Tanglin Mall (#01-07)

163 Tanglin Road

Singapore 247933

T: (+65) 6235 4718

A great selection of swimming gear and a good source of UV suits. They also have a shop at Paragon (#5-56; T: (+65) 6836 2672). BTW: if you can help it, don’t go for the cotton-style UV suits which bag badly over time.  Far better to choose the shinier versions which look fine when wet and not nearly as nasty as they appear on the hanger.

Opening Times: 10am-9pm Sun-Thu; 10am-9.30pm Fri & Sat
