The answers in pictures of the FAQ

favorite Hit: 3151

Hello, my name is Shaili, I am responsible for customer service at Plouf. My team and I answer your questions live on social networks , chat, phone and emails.

Also, we realized that questions came up regularly; So to help you here are the answers in pictures ! 

What weight and minimum age for the PLOUF floating swimsuit ?

Indeed, we have created specific sizes according to weight to guarantee optimal flotation for children from 30 months and 13kg. Yes Yes !

I insist on the age of 30 months and 13kg !

Indeed, a 30 month old child had time to develop some motor skills in the legs, arms and head. This motor skills is important because without it the child will not be comfortable in the water.

From the first use, it is essential that the child learn to stomp their feet IN the water, first vertically, (then later with practice horizontally).

Without activating the movement of the legs and arms, the child will not be able to stabilize in the water. Let’s not forget that the purpose of the Plouf floating swimsuit is to learn to swim.

None of these products to date has been able to combine learning and safety at such a level.

Tips : even if you give the swimsuit a blow with the cutter, the tests prove that its buoyancy is in no way impaired

Is it normal that the Size 2 swimsuit has sleeves ?

Indeed, our floating suit in size 2 is our smallest size. It floats the lightest weights : children between 13 and 15 kg. To ensure optimal flotation we have added FibreAirⓒ inside the sleeves of swimsuit of this size .

Tips for putting on our swimsuits ?

During the season, I took part with the Plouf brand in numerous shootings with lots of little models. Swimming pool, sea, lake, all the water points are there.

So after experience, here is my advice that I dedicate to you : “Put the child's two arms back AT THE SAME TIME then put on the swimsuit ON BOTH arms AT THE SAME TIME.”

My child is 15 kg, 17 kg, 19 kg or 21 kg how to choose ?

Size Guide :

Size 2 : 13 to 15 kg

Size 3 : 15 to 17 kg

Size 4 : 17 to 19 kg

Size 5 : 19 to 21 kg

Size 6 : 21 to 24 kg

Indeed, there are some who may hesitate between 2 sizes... In this case, the most important thing is to understand that this does not affect the flotation of the child. This will remain the same in both sizes.

We therefore recommend taking the size above, to allow the child to keep the swimsuit longer
