Fabrics that are guaranteed chlorine resistant have been selected for the latest children's swimwear range to be marketed under the SpOsh brand name.

"The use of chlorine resistant cloth considerably extends the life of suits worn by regular pool swimmers," says Marketing Mania Ltd which will be handling both the UK and overseas distribution of the new range.

Flat seam overlocking gives the swimsuits the sleek outline favoured by championship swimmers.

From a fashion point of view SpOsh expects the retro Victorian look of navy and white horizontal striping to be this season's best selling fabric design. All designs can be accessorised with baggy T-shirt tops and - sun hats.
