Did a couple of laps in the pool and need a breather? Just want to soak up the sun in ultimate comfort?

All you need is a sun lounger that ticks all the right boxes! So, what should you be looking for?

Aim for a piece that is not only made for the outdoors but also has comfortable seating. First prize would be to choose a sun lounger that doesn’t need any extra cushion and allows several tilt positions to help you find a comfortable position to rest on.

Even better, invest in a side table for ultimate convenience – no need to jump up from your lounger to get a cold beverage when you can keep it next to you.
