by Virgile Cachon on January 27, 2023


Why choose floating swimsuit Plouf, the revolutionary product that makes children float?

Please note: use of the Plouf children's swimsuit does not exempt parents from being present!

There are different types of floats. We have already heard about the round buoy, armbands, swimming vests and foam vests, swimsuits and so many other accessories ofbuoyancy aid.

So you ask yourself, what are the differences? What is the best choice? What is the value of these products compared to the Plouf floating swimsuit ? Let's review its benefits and its differences with other flotation devices.


It floats, but it's not an accessory!

We know that swimming should be a time for relaxation with your child. That's why we've done away with bulky accessories and kept only the essentials. No more inflating armbands or having to buy new ones every week because they're flat. No more worrying about your child taking them off, or worse, having them come off when he dives into the water. Thanks to Plouf, parents' stress and children's reduced mobility are a thing of the past!

Did I remember to pack the lifebuoy, armbands and foam fry before heading off to the beach? And don't forget the swimsuit...

Le Plouf floating swimsuit stands on its own! It's a floating vest for kids, so you put it on for a swim and that's it! Not only does it make you float, it's lightweight and doesn't restrict movement. The icing on the cake is that Plouf is also a great way to learn the basics of swimming! !

In fact, Plouf is an official supplier to the Fédération Nationale de Natation (FFN), and a partner of the Académie de la Natation. floating swimsuit is officially recognized as an anti-drowning safety device.

So Plouf lets you enjoy the water in complete safety, before you really know how to swim independently. Its special feature is that it requires as little equipment as possible, making it easy for children to move around in the water.
For parents, it's a real safety feature for children in the water. 

It floats and the child is free to move!

You need to choose a flotation device that allows your child to enjoy the benefits of the water safely and comfortably. Accessories such as armbands or even foam floatation suits are too bulky, they interfere with the child's natural movements in the water, and can irritate the skin by the friction they cause. Not to mention the plug effect of the swimsuits which, during a dive, could be traumatic. In short, a child who is embarrassed in the water will not feel comfortable, he must be reassured and have confidence to be able to approach the first steps of swimming without panicking and with complete freedom of movement. Moreover, once the child gets out of the pool, he will surely want to remove what is bothering him... This often leads to removing, putting back, removing, putting back, removing, putting back...

And that goes for every swim of the day. Rest assured, the floating swimsuit Plouf fille or boyprotects your little one without blocking his or her movements. It's comfortable to wear thanks to FibreAir® technology integrated into the inside of the swimsuit. The FibreAir is ergonomically designed to follow your little one's movements all day long? We've worked hard to find the right balance between safety and freedom of movement - it's French know-how!

Why does it float so well?

It is because Plouf is the worldwide patent holder of the FibreAir® that all the swimsuits provide optimal buoyancy with the least amount of material possible!

Indeed FibreAir® (which allows the child to float) is inserted inside the swimsuit. That's how Plouf makes it possible to float and comfortably approach the beginnings of swimming. With 250g of FibreAir®, you can float 130Kg! That's Plouf's secure buoyancy. Even when torn, it will keep you afloat. Plouf swimwear is durable because it's puncture-proof.

Children get into the water in total comfort!

Swim vests or life jackets... You know, the ones you have to fasten with a harness between your legs

Ouille ! The second disadvantage is that once the child is in the water, the vest rises above the head and the harness pulls on the crotch, which is annoying and can irritate or even hurt.

At PLOUF we've designed our swimsuits to enable children to get into the water, developing their independence and, above all, having fun. How can you enjoy the water if the accessories that help you float get in the way or hurt? That's why the Plouf team spent a long time working on the ergonomics of the FibreAir® that makes up the inside of the swimsuit and makes it float.

The verdict? It is without appeal!

With buoyancy that puts children in a horizontal position, unrivalled freedom of movement for a buoyancy aid, and certification by the FFN and the European safety standard for buoyancy aids for learning to swim, floating swimsuit Plouf is THE children's floating swimsuit for summer 2023! No more stress, no more chafing, no more aches and pains, no more deflated armbands and punctured buoys! You're in the water to enjoy it, parents and kids alike. So what are you waiting for?
