    Boys swim wear - splash vests?

    Not sure if that's even the right word for them but I'm sure you know I mean the surf style tshirt that boys can wear with swim shorts.
    there seems to be lots of sets and then lots of shorts by themselves but I find the vests seem to wear faster than the shorts and ideally would like to buy a 2 or 3 pack separately.
    have had a little look on m&s and next and they don't sell packs of them just singular ones...just wondering if anyone has seen any thing like this ?
    thanks.

    Have you tried Tesco? I noticed girls Hello Kitty ones on their own today. I didn't look at the boys section.

    I know them as rash vests, and you can usually get them from shops on ebay or from surf / sports shops.

    Yep, they are rash vests and you can either spend a fortune on them in places like Animal, or get much cheaper ones in naff seaside resorts!

    you might just have yourself a deal there!!
    Seriously though, I'll happily pick you some up when they come back in at Kmart and Target.
    When it gets to our summer time, I'll get your address off you!

    We are in Australia now, but I stocked up on lots in the UK. They were 2 in Sainsburys (reduced from about 15 I think).

    A bit OT but why are they called rash vests? I've always wondered!

    Because they stop you getting a rash from the surf.
