My top FIVE favorite swimwear lines for kids
If I were to admit to any serious addictions – one is obviously shopping but if you dig deeper my swimsuit obsession is real. My sister and I share in this amazing trait and it makes me feel better to know I’m not alone. Should we start a group – who is with us?! Most people buy one suit a year for their kids or … do they?!! That’s what I would think a normal person would do … I tend to do the opposite of that. But when I bring my kids to the pool and a complete stranger says oh my gosh … their suits are so cute where did you get them?! That is all the validation I need. You can never have TOO many swimsuits. Here are my favorites and why I love them.
Kortni Jeane – This is my top recommendation for girls and for moms. I love the ability to mix and match tops and bottoms based on your body type. My entire life I have needed larger bottoms than I do tops (one piece suits have NEVER worked for me – long torso probs) and so this brand has become a favorite. Charlie inherited my long torso so this brand also fits her amazing and I love that she can wear a two piece and not have her midriff yet. When someone encourages me to mix patterns within their line is just speaking my fashion love language. Also your mommy and me matching dreams come true with this brand … you actually could have your entire family coordinate if you really wanted to. I mean why NOT? Pro tip - styles do sell out in certain sizes so if you want to guarantee to get what you love – buy it on release day. If you like to wing it and love a good deal, they have 40% off sales at the end of a collection cycle (not sure that is a real term) so you can grab these for a steal. Once they launch a new collection the old one is gone for good. Great quality, great fit, love love love. If you use code BOGO2019 right now you get a swimmer FREE for every one you buy by July 16th at midnight. Pretty sweet deal!
Snapperock – I came across this brand when working as a stylist for Mac & Mia. I bought a pair for Miles and I love to coordinate my kids’ swimsuits so when I saw how great they fit him I bought the board short version for Caleb. This has been by far the best fitting and longest lasting brand my boys have had in swimwear.
Mini Boden – I had striped swimmers for Miles as a baby that I was obsessed with – first discovered them from other IG resale shops. Every baby boy should wear these. I also had a one piece suit for Charlie in this brand and she loved it – great for swim lessons or when you need something less frilly and more functional.
Crew and Lu – love this brand and have for years – the reversible cut out suit is definitely a favorite. That rainbow sorbet would be in Charlie’s closet if they made her size!!!
New finds this year: Shade Critters – flip sequins and tutu suits for babies – enough said. Pink Chicken – the cutest patterns and mix and match rashguards. Both brands run small so I would order one size up. She also has several from Stella Cove - a very funky brand with really cute fit - Charlie’s favorite brand for sure!
GOGGLES! These are the best goggles quality wise I have ever come across and my kids LOVE them. Bonus – they are unique and won’t get lost pool side because they look like everyone else’s. Donut sprinkle goggles?!! Mark it down. Dream for sure.
