*Outlet* Women's Long Sleeve Swimsuit - Kingfisher Cove
Please note that the sleeves of this swimsuit were made only slightly wider than usual so may not sit as tightly around the arm as our other ladies styles.
If you prefer a looser fit around the arm then this won't be an issue for you, however if you prefer a more fitted swimsuit then this looser fit in the arm might not be ideal. Additional upper arm width is approx 2cm per arm.
This 'outlet' style is heavily discounted due to this slight imperfection caused during manufacture, otherwise the quality, chlorine-durability and other features remain the same as the rest of our range.
Our beautiful Kingfisher Cove Womens Long-Sleeve Swimsuit is designed for ladies who value stylish sun protection; it is on a unique print that is inspired by magical K'Gari / Fraser Island.
This swimsuit provides full-coverage across the back, chest and arms; it is double-layered for extra protection against harmful UV rays, and has an in-built shelf bra.
The polyester-blend fabric is buttery-soft, durable for use in chlorine, and will keep skin well-protected without agitation.
- This flattering swimsuit with its solid black panels is designed to slim and elongate the waist and under-arms.
- An in-built bra with removable padding ensures ladies of all sizes are catered for.
- Front zip allows for easy dressing and permits breastfeeding mothers to nurse with ease.
- Modest cut at the back - comfortably covers the backside.
- Ultra comfortable & soft.
The print features Australian Azure Kingfisher birds amidst tropical flora and fauna. Its gorgeous background is a light blue colour, like the water of Lake McKenzie on Fraser Island.

"I purchased the Kingfisher Cove design and the style and fit were perfect for my body shape and so much nicer than any I have tried on in the shops. I was hesitant about buying a swimsuit online but I had no reason to be concerned as it was perfect. My beautiful swimmers are very comfortable to wear and the inbuilt bra is very flattering." - Robyn C

(if machine-washing please use a garment bag, cold water & low spin cycle)
- Do not wring, rub, soak or bleach swimwear.
- Dry in the shade – never tumble dry.
- Do not leave rolled up wet or store when damp.

Absolutely love my Kingfisher Cove long sleeved swim suit, looking forward to wearing it on my Cairns holiday in 2 weeks time. Quality of the item is outstanding, loving the bra insert.
I was worried about this outlet style as I wasn't sure if it might be too big in the sleeves, but it wasn't at all. I wear an XS size, it was true to size and the sleeve width didn't worry me at all - certainly not baggy. Great quality fabric, flattering cut and a vibrant print. Great saving too!
The suit looks great, fits really well. My body shape is fairly well "straight up and down" and I am often not sure what size to buy online. However, I checked the sizing table and went with a Medium. It fits perfectly, and gives me a curvy look, which was a surprise.
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, paddleboarding or just chilling at the beach.

Hi! I’m Emily, mother of 3 little girls and founder of Tribe Tropical.
Growing up I used to dread beach days!
As a red-head with fair skin, growing up in the tropics, I either had to risk being teased by other kids for covering up in a daggy old t-shirt, or end the day sunburnt & in pain.
Having since suffered with countless skin cancer treatments (and further to the loss of my grandfather due to melanoma), I understand the importance of sun protection - I started Tribe Tropical with a desire to protect my family and yours in beautiful, high-quality sun-protective swimwear that people would feel good in & enjoy wearing.
No-one should dread a beach day! I hope to help you to make them fun & burn-free also.
