If you have kids, you know their bodies change as they grow. This means that the sizes of their swimsuits and shorts can vary. That’s why it’s essential to know some of the basics of choosing the correct size.
A saggy swimsuit can be uncomfortable (and potentially embarrassing!). Because children will most likely be playing at the pool or beach, their swimwear must fit appropriately. Suits should be equipped, so they are not too loose or saggy but not so tight that they are uncomfortable. Because sizing and fit can vary depending on the swimsuit style and brand, it’s critical to review the various size charts, measurements, and reviews.
UPF rating of the swimsuit
When shopping for a swimsuit for kids, consider the Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF). This is a rating of the level of UV protection the fabric offers. The higher the rating, the better the protection.
UV rays come from the sun, tanning booths, and sunlamps. They cause the skin to produce more melanin, which turns into a tan. These rays then enter the skin’s inner layers, causing damage.
A UPF 50+ swimsuit blocks 98% of harmful rays from the sun. That’s much better than a standard t-shirt’s UPF 5 factor.
Kids need sunscreen just as much as adults. For that reason, many kids’ swimsuits are made of UPF material. Also, you can use an app on your phone to get alerts when UV levels are high.
If you need help determining a UPF, hold a piece of clothing up to the light. You can also look for the number on the product. Typically, a higher number means more rays blocked and loss of exposure.
Colors and Patterns
Another important consideration is selecting the right color, pattern, and style. Children, like adults, want to feel good in their swimwear, so having colors, patterns, and designs that match their style preferences and personality is essential. Mom, dad, or other family members or friends can have fun browsing through cute styles and choosing from various designs, from solid colors to bright summer shades, for younger kids who aren’t ready to express their opinions on fashion. Allow children old enough to tell their preferences to browse online with you to find the swimwear they want.

Choosing from the a challenging task, especially if you are on a tight budget. A local sporting goods store is one of the best places to start your search. The best part is most stores have a knowledgeable staff. This is particularly true if you are looking for something other than regular swimsuits and swimsuits. As a bonus, you’ll find that most shops are a lot more fun to be in. The staff is friendly, and the prices are more than reasonable. Plus, you’ll likely find that the store carries many other novelty items to keep the kids entertained and occupied for hours. Some stores even have special offers where the best deal of the day is a buy one get one free deal.
