the last goodbye

Lion in the Sun, sadly, is closing shop

We're a small, family run business and just can't compete in the pool with the big boys. It's been a wonderful ride and we are grateful to all our lovely customers who have kept coming back for the last 15 years.

All swimwear is discounted by 80% to clear.

Please have fun shopping, it is fabulous quality and all made from beautiful Italian fabric and these discounts represent wonderful value for money.

And if you love our swimwear, please tell your friends about our stock clearance.

Please allow a bit of time for delivery as we clear stock, we are experiencing a very high order rate and our usual 24 hour service does not apply!

Lion in the Sun has been making and selling beautiful sun protective swimwear for 15 years.

We've sourced top quality Italian fabric, we've tested and refined our styles according to customer feedback and we make our swimwear ethically in an honest factory in Fiji that we visit often and we know they care well for their staff.

We've had lovely customers, some of whom bought baby gear back in the early days and are buying for their teens now, who call and write, send photos and suggestions.

Thanks to you all. Please support us as we close up shop.


Keep in touch

New collections, news, special offers, competitions, crazy quick discounts...

Very pleased that the HATS HAVE GONE to a charity:
