Winter seems to trudge on, but most kids have had enough and are already thinking about warm weather. Everybody is tired of the hectic schedule of the school year and could use a break. Are you heading off to a warm, sunny locale for spring break? Or even just spending a long weekend at an indoor waterpark? If so, you need to start thinking about purchasing kids’ swimwear.
It may seem like there isn’t much to think about when it comes to buying kids’ swimwear. Kids don’t have the same swimwear woes that adults have. For them, there is no worrying about hiding bulges or paying a fortune for the most flattering suit possible. You can just grab the cutest suit off the rack at the local discount store and you’re done, right? Well, not necessarily.
There are a few things you should keep in mind when shopping for kids’ swimwear. It can be difficult to find a suit that is age-appropriate, particularly for little girls. Often times the swimsuits that are sold by stores and are popular with tween girls (and younger) are the same types of suits that you would see on a celebrity on the cover of a gossip magazine. That probably isn’t what you want your little girl to wear.
Choosing a suit with more coverage is not only about modesty; it’s also a good choice for protecting your daughter’s skin. The more skin that is covered, the less area is exposed to the sun. Don’t assume that a one piece suit means that you can’t get sunburned though. Some summer fabrics are so lightweight that you can get burned right through them. Look for a suit with built-in UV protection.
You can get very cute, stylish kids’ swimwear with plenty of UV protection to keep your family comfy and covered on the beach. You can choose from rash guards, sun shorts, surf suits, hats, swim jackets and lots of other pieces for boys, girls, and babies that will keep them cool and comfortable but also protected from the sun. If you don’t want quite that much coverage, there are bikini separates for girls and traditional swim trunks for boys that still have UV protection built into the fabric.
Whatever pieces you choose, you and your family are sure to have a relaxing and enjoyable spring break or summer vacation, especially if no one has to worry about sunburn ruining their time in the sunshine.
Cute kids’ swimwear that appeals to the fashion savvy–being sun smart has never looked this good!
