I chose this suit for my son who is currently being treated with severe creams for his eczema. It was important his skin stay covered from the sun on our recent holiday to Spain. This suit was perfect being full length arms and legs. The soft cotton was gentle against his skin and as others have said it does take longer to dry but it was worth the wait. I ordered the suit online and received it in just a few days. Excellent service.

Handsome pattern and made from lovely thick cotton. The high sun protection factor gives added peace of mind for trips to the beach and the softness of cotton on my little boy's sensitive skin just about outweighs the fact that it takes an absolute age to dry. Unfortunately however, after minimal use and only a couple of brief dips in the water it already looks pretty old and worn - mixed feelings on this one...

I needed a UV suit for my little boy as after a scald injury we were advised to put him in a sunsuit any time he is in the sun. He was sensitive skin anyway so I didn't want him wearing synthetic clothes all the time. This suit was a godsend. So comfy in cotton, two piece so he can wear shorts or swim shorts too (his top half needs the extra protection). Obviously it takes longer to dry, as it's cotton! No problem, still brilliant for water related play too! He's just turned 1, got the age 1-2 and it fits well but with plenty of room for growing. Doesn't appear to have faded more than expected in the sun. We love it, thanks jojo!

Fantastic little suit. Ideal for playing in the garden / paddling pool. It's great that it has full length sleeves and legs - lots of suits are cropped.

I bought this suit for my son who is nearly 3, but very tall for his age, so I bought size 4-5 and it is still a little short for him. However, we took it on holiday and he absolutely loved it and wanted to put it on as soon as we arrived. It looked fab and we had lots of nice comments about it as he ran about the caravan site. The 2-piece was ideal as he need to be able to use the potty/toilet - plus he wore it as separates once the pants got wet in the sea. The cotton material was lovely for a UK holiday as a bit warmer for the wind than the quick dry suit I had purchased for my daughter - but it did take a while to dry. It is a little faded on washing but it did take a hammering on the holiday with rock climbing etc - so I expected that. I would def buy again, but not for my son as he is now exceeding the size limits, but maybe next year I will treat my daughter.

Lovely pattern and great for my son's eczema, however took far too long to dry. My LO ended up shivering in the splash pool on holiday as it just wouldn't dry during the day. Perfect however for our visits to the beach when my LO wasn't getting too wet. Then I had complete peace of mind that he was covered in the sun.

This Sun Protection Suit is exactly what we need and being a two piece means that it will be much easier to put on and off during the hot weather. It is excellent quality as we expected and delivery was fast. We have also bought the sun hat with the flap to go with it which will also help protect our little one really well.

Fantastic outfit. Colour and material has stayed lovely after many wash and dries. Looks lovely on my baby boy and he can comfortably move around in it with his swim nappy on.

After searching endlessly for a cotton sun/swim suit I stumbled upon your brand name in a mothers forum and someone was saying how great your products are. My daughter has allergies to just about everything and can only wear cotton. I was extatic to see you sold cotton sun suits. Your staff were super helpful and always replied to me asap . Delivery was reasonable and fast to my country and I look forward to next seasons stock in January so I can buy more ,the quality is excellent and still looks new worn all the time holds the cream on her skin in to absorb better in heat. My regards Kristy

Lovely outfit when first tried on. However, within hours of wearing it in, having been exposed to the pool and sun, the outfit had faded, gone bobbly and shrunk.

love the outfit, fit for my 20 month old boy beautifully. Bought the size for 2-3 yr old online; I would have bought larger size if i had tried it on him before purchase -- he is a quite tall baby (92 cm).

I am a regular shopper at Jo jo's as I love the quality and uniqueness of the products, however I am really disappointed by the quality of the two piece shark suit. I know to expect slight fading in chlorine/sun etc, but after just 3days use on holiday it has completely faded and lost it's colour. I also purchased the all in one fish swim suit for my younger son, this remains looking like new after the same amount of use.

Bought one of these last year (gecko print) and was really happy with it. My son found it really comfortable and I liked the fact that it was 100 cotton, unlike most of the other products of this type. The downside was that it did take a long time to dry. That won't stop me buying another one this year though! (Tip: search the internet for details of how to stop swimwear fading in the sun by soaking it in vinegar before wearing; I did so and this suit barely faded, despite lots of sun, sea

Sun exposure causes skin damage. Young children are particularly at risk of sunburn because of their delicate skin, babies are especially vulnerable
Sunburn during childhood can lead to skin cancer later in life - keep babies out of the sun
UV Sunsuits offer a great way to keep cool and protected while playing in the sun
