Our Story

IMG 9556Rockley Cove was founded by Lynne Murray and Judy Thompson in 2013.

We are both Mums and set up Rockley Cove as a fresh British beachwear brand with an eye for style.

The idea for Rockley Cove was born while enjoying a beautiful sunny day on a Dorset beach with friends and family.  Ever mindful of the need to protect our fair-skinned children from over- exposure to the sun, we felt that the protective beachwear market  was in need of something new. Something just a bit more stylish.  Something fashionable and colourful that girls AND Mums would love. Something like Rockley Cove!

"We are passionate about giving your little fashionistas stylish beachwear that protects their skin."

For a bit of fun, we have called our first collection Rashkini, offering a choice of cool and contemporary matching rash vests and bikinis.  We've taken inspiration for our unique, British-designed prints from current fashion trends – take a look at our Pinterest page to see how we have drawn on these  influences.

For maximum protection, all our beachwear has UPF50+ which has been tested to the stringent standards of the Australian National Standards Body’s ‘Evaluation and classification of sun protective clothing’ (AS/NZS 4399:1996).   Research has shown that just one case of sunburn during childhood more than doubles your chance of developing skin cancer in later life – that’s why we felt it was important to make sure the Rashkini range is made from UPF50+ fabric.

We'd love to know what you think about Rockley Cove .  Follow us on Twitter at @rockleycove or get in touch by email.  Also find us on Facebook.
