What Our Customers Say
Tribe Tropical swimwear is by far the best designed and quality in Australia. The thought process that has gone into these designs, made for comfort, quality and being so sunsafe is a stand out. Each time my daughter wears these they wash up like brand new.
My kids wore these swimmers for over 2 years. Not one issue with them, they still have a good year or two in them as well so last 3-4 years. We've had no fade or stretch, no pulling or pilling. Have handed down to friends children as my children outgrew them. Love them so much.
I am really impressed with the level of support the ladies swimsuit provides, even for a larger cup size, which is so hard to find.Fantastic to wear for any water activity. I love the sun protection and comfort of the swimsuit while surfing, paddle boarding or just chilling at the beach.

MEET THE FOUNDER
Hi! I’m Emily Gradon, an Australian mother of 3 little girls.
I founded Tribe Tropical further to struggles I had finding suitable sun-safe swimwear for myself and my family; I also wanted others to be able to enjoy time in the sun without the consequence of prolonged sun exposure.
Growing up in tropical Papua New Guinea and Cairns as a fair-skinned redhead in the 80s/90s wasn’t always easy – my parents always ensured I was well-covered in the sun, while my olive-skinned sisters and friends ran off to play, but this ‘daggy’ swim attire wasn’t really socially accepted or favourably seen amongst young kids back then, so I was often teased and left to feel outcast – sadly there were none of the trendy, sun-safe swimwear options around then that are available today!
Despite regular use of sunscreen and whatever coverage was available growing up, the damage from the sun became apparent in my early 20s, when I first had numerous basal cell carcinomas (BCCs, pre-cancerous lesions) either surgically removed from various parts of my body, or treated with aggressive, topical, chemotherapy-like treatments lasting up to six weeks in duration. I've since had countless lesions treated and now have skin cancer checks every 6 months.
