Even the youngest members of the family look forward to having fun at the pool or at the beach, so getting a comfortable bathing suit made especially with young children in mind is essential. Check out the toddler swimwear offerings from Roxy, Breaking Waves and Quiksilver.
Kids bathing suits should go on quick and easy and stay in place without binding, even when wet. For a girl, a pull-on one-piece suit with stretchy straps is a good choice and is available in several strap styles including one-shoulder and halter. Choose a machine washable fabric for easy care and, to please almost any little girl, try a floral print suit with ruffle trim on the straps.
A two-piece swimsuit can be a good style for little girls who are ready to dress themselves but still can’t navigate closures like buttons or zippers. Available in a wide variety of cute designs and fabrics including solids, stripes and polka dots, toddler swimwear made with separate tops and bottoms can be like having several suits. Start a collection of both solid colors and prints and let her match them all by herself.
Small boys need a swimsuit that goes on easy and stays comfortable all day long too. Look for bathing trunks made of polyester with a soft elastic waistband and a mesh poly lining. Pockets are nice for storing those small treasures that kids find at the beach, so go with a style that includes side pockets and at least one back pocket.
Boardshorts are bathing trunks that are longer than usual, first used by surfers to protect their legs from a surfboard. Now the style is popular with boys of all ages and can be had in a wide variety of colors and prints. Polyester is strong and comfortable—and machine washable—and a good fabric choice for active boys. Look for a design with an elastic waist and hook-and-loop closures on the pockets.
