At a glance:

These affordable swimming nappies fit well and didn’t swell in the water. They might not be as attractive as other brands on the market, but they’ll save you money whilst doing the job.

What they say:

“Our swimming pants are specially designed to help prevent leaks and keep their shape when wet for a comfortable fit. Made for splashtime fun, they’re non-swell, anti-leak pants for delicate bottoms. Super soft, with a specially shaped core to keep new arrival's comfy and dry. Ultra dry, made for round the clock comfort. Super soft, stretchy nappies with anti-leak leg cuffs for round-the clock comfort, ultra dry active are made for new adventures.”

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would definitely recommend this product to one of my other mum friends as it meets all of the needs of a swimming nappy for a baby. I was very impressed not only with the fact that the nappy didn't swell, but also size and fit of the nappy for my daughter. I thought it was great value for money too. My only criticism was the fact I found them quite difficult to remove after swimming.

How did the product make your life easier?

This product is excellent value for money and meets all the claims made on the packaging. I was very impressed when I used them on our family holiday to Turkey. They fitted my daughter well and meant I could take her in the pool without worrying about any accidents. I was also very impressed with how little water they soaked up, which meant my daughter wasn't weighed down when we eventually finished.

Would you choose this product to win?

These are great value for money and are a good quality product that allowed me to take my daughter swimming without worrying about any accidents in the pool. The product matches the description on the packaging, however, I did find the packaging quite bland and boring, and it didn't really stand out as a swimming nappy from the images on the front, meaning I might not have purchased them prior to trying them.

What changes would you make to the product?

The packaging was too bland and boring, with no detail as to what the product actually is. I also found it quite difficult to remove once we had been swimming. Normally with swim pants I rip them at the side to take them off, but I found this quite difficult and awkward to do, and needed my partners help.

Tested by mum Laura Berry for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would recommend this product to other mums as the design makes changing quick, easy and fuss free. I loved the design, as I found them easier than taped nappies, and felt they were more comfortable for my baby, and gave me peace of mind that they were less likely to leak due to the anti-leak technology they are made with. They are compact, and are very easy to just put in his ordinary changing bag and go.

How did this product make your life easier?

This product makes my life easier as a mum due to the design. The pull up design makes getting my baby ready for a swim quick, easy and completely fuss free! This saves time and is less of a hassle for him, as he really doesn’t enjoy getting changed. It has made taking my baby swimming a more enjoyable experience, as he can be ready in a matter of seconds.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would highly recommend these above other swim nappies, as they are perfectly suited to sensitive skin. Having a baby with such sensitive eczema prone skin, many nappies can easily irritate him and these are the only ones I have found that haven't bothered him at all. They are great value for money, fit well, and are designed so that they don't bulk up while in the water, making it much easier for baby to move, and meaning I definitely think it should be a winner!

What changes would you make to this product?

The only thing I would change about this product would be the packet size. As an active mum, I enjoy taking my little boy swimming very often, meaning I do spend a lot of money on these, and often have to buy a pack almost every week. Bigger packs would also make things easier when travelling abroad, as it would take up less space and mean I wouldn't need to buy multiple packs!

Tested my mum Cathryn Ashcroft for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Yes, I would recommend these to a friend or fellow mum, solely because they are great value for money. I would definitely purchase these over the leading brand. The pull-ups were really quick and easy to use, especially on a wriggly baby, and were easy to pull on and off. The design is also quite neutral, and they are packaged really well.

How did this product make your life easier?

These definitely made my life easier when going swimming. This was my first time using any sort of pull up nappy, and it was so much easier to pull on and off a wriggly baby! It was less hassle getting baby changed and I didn't have to worry whether the nappy was in the right place or tight enough to avoid leakages.

Would you choose this product to win?

I would definitely buy these again as they are great value for money and are so easy to use. They are much cheaper than the leading brand, and the quality is great. Having pull-ups was a lot quicker when trying to get baby changed, however, I imagine pull-ups might get a bit messy if baby had pooed in the nappy!

What changes would you make to this product?

It would be nice to see some prettier designs, however, it wouldn't stop me purchasing them, as ultimately they are covered by a swimming costume and only used for a short period before being chucked in the bin! Given the value, I wouldn't complain about the aesthetics. It might be good to have a non pull-up option, as I imagine they could get quite messy if the baby gets a little too relaxed whilst in the water.

Tested by mum Emily Lowe for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I think these nappies are very easy to carry around seeing as they are so light and so compact. If you are looking for a quick and easy swim nappy, these are fine, however, if you are looking for something to use more long term and every day, I would suggest looking elsewhere, as they didn’t seem to hold much water, and had leaked before we got into the pool.

How did this product make your life easier?

The nappies are fairly easy to use, although it is unclear which is the front or the back. They appeared comfortable on my children, and were quite small, so fit in the change bag easily. They are also lightweight, so aren’t too bulky under swimwear. However, I did find that they leaked, and if you want to get your children ready before heading to the pool, I wouldn’t recommend using these nappies.

Would you choose this product to win?

I wouldn’t choose this product over others on the market. I think these were rather poor. Although they were thin, the quality wasn’t great, and they leaked quite easily. I don’t think this product should win an award, as there are better quality swim nappies out there.

What changes would you make to this product?

I would change the design as it was unclear if there was a front or back, and even now I’m still unsure whether I’m putting them on my baby properly. When changing babies in what are usually not the nicest of changing rooms, you want the job to be done in the shortest time possible, however, I spent a good while trying to work out which way to put the nappy on, which was frustrating.

Tested by mum Hollie Smith for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would definitely recommend these, as they were a perfect fit for my boy, which is so hard to find! We absolutely loved them. Most other brands have swim nappies that are much too big, but these are perfect, and we had a fabulous first time swimming using these nappies! I don't usually shop at Morrisons, but I will be now!

How did this product make your life easier?

This product made my life easier because they were a perfect fit! It's so difficult to get nappies that fit my premature baby and these fit perfectly. I absolutely loved them, and he obviously loved them too, as he never so much as made a peep! Definitely made our first swim perfect – I 100% would recommend Morrison’s!

Would you choose this product to win?

Yes! I would 100% choose these! It's so hard to find swim nappies that fit my baby as he was premature, and is still so tiny at eight-months-old. These were really great, and I can't wait to use them again! They must've been comfy because he fell asleep in the pool – brilliant quality from Morrison’s!

What changes would you make to this product?

The only thing I would change is the design, as it was hard to tell which was the front and which was the back. Apart from that I would not change anything about this product whatsoever. They were brilliant. I'll be getting all my sons swim nappies from Morrisons from now on. Cannot recommend enough!
