A staple beachwear piece in Australia, “boardies’’ are the versatile quick-dry and UV swim shorts to wear over a one-piece or with your favourite bikini. They offer extra coverage for prolonged time in the water–so they’re perfect for water sports or just paddling with little ones in the shallows– plus they’re so easy to pull on when you’re heading to a beachside café or taking a walk along the shore. For sporty mums or resort-y mums, check out our latest women’s style guide and add a pair of these super-soft swim shorts to your beach kit!
