How can I find out the size of swimsuits for my children?
To make your kids feel comfortable all summer long, they should choose swimsuits that fit them well.
How do I measure a swimsuit for kids?
To figure out what swimsuit size you should buy for your child, you first need to take some basic measurements. When taking measurements for a swimsuit for girls, start with height, weight, chest, waist, hips, and crotch. With the exception of weight, all of these measurements can be taken with an ordinary tape measure. Compare these measurements to the size chart on the product page to determine the correct swimsuit size.
The same measurements can be taken for boys to determine the best swimsuit size. As for swimsuits for girls, find the size chart on the product page and compare it with your child's measurements. This will help you determine the right size to buy swimsuits and shirts.
Choose the right fabric for swimsuits
Now that you know how to size your child's swimsuit, it's helpful to know the fabrics for swimsuits. When buying a one-piece or tankini for girls, look for a sturdy, stretchy blend of nylon and spandex or polyester and spandex. Nylon and polyester are great for swimsuits because they are soft and retain their shape even after repeated wear. Spandex provides enough elasticity for your child to swim and play comfortably. Swimsuits made of Lycra® XtraLife™ Spandex are always a good choice, as this material lasts about ten times longer than regular spandex. Look for chlorine-resistant swimsuits to ensure longevity - this material resists chlorine, salt water, sweat, and the chemicals of sunscreen without discoloring or losing its structural integrity.
Swimsuits for boys are usually made of polyester, but some may contain a touch of spandex. When choosing a swimsuit for girls or boys, look for lined polyester. Lined swimsuits provide good coverage and most also offer 50 UPF sun protection. Of course, you still need to use sunscreen, but swimsuits with SPF 50 offer extra protection for the skin covered by the swimsuit, which can be overlooked if you keep reapplying sunscreen throughout the day.
Other tips for buying a swimsuit
When buying a swimsuit for kids, there are a few other features you should look for. For example, if you're opting for a one-piece swimsuit or tankini for girls, adjustable straps are a must. And if you're buying a swimsuit for boys, an elastic waistband with a drawstring ensures a custom fit. If your child is between sizes, choose the larger size so the swimsuit isn't too tight. You may even be able to use a single swimsuit for two seasons.
If you take proper care of your child's swimsuit, it can last much longer. Rinse swimsuits for girls and boys with fresh water. If a wash cycle is needed, use a mild detergent and gently rub the swimsuit with your hand in a circular motion. Rinse all the soap out of the swimsuit with fresh water and squeeze out the excess water. Lay the swimsuit flat on a towel, roll up the towel and squeeze it to remove any water remaining in the fabric. Unroll the towel and place it in a shaded area to dry.
Choice of protective clothing
Protective suits are an important part of any summer wardrobe. For boys, there are short- and long-sleeved swimsuits in bright colors and beach motifs. There are also protective suits with hoods for boys that provide even more coverage and a light layer of warmth.
Girls have just as much choice when it comes to protective suits. There are protective suits for girls with the same sleeve lengths, so you can find the suit that gives you the protection you want. These swimsuits are made of polyester and spandex for added comfort and stretch and offer UPF 50 protection for covered areas. There are also covering dresses that go down to the knee or ankle.
