Yes, technically it is still winter, but it’s not too early to shop for girls swimwear. It is still chilly outside, but you can mentally skip ahead to summer and start fantasizing about long, sunny days on the beach, backyard barbecues, and floating around in the pool. Of course, for all of those things you and your family will need swimsuits.
Shopping for girls swimwear with your daughter is probably not on the top of most people’s list of fun things to do this summer. But shopping early really is a smart decision. If you plan to head somewhere warm and sunny for spring break, you’ll definitely need to start shopping for a swimsuit soon. Even if you don’t plan to wear a swimsuit until summer, you’d be smart to shop early. You get to choose from the best selection and take time to shop around for bargains if you shop early. Most young girls will be more than happy to get a head start on shopping.
Whenever you decide to start shopping, here are some important factors to consider when choosing girls swimwear.
1. Fit. You want to choose a suit for your daughter that fits snugly, but comfortably. A swimsuit that is a little bit loose in the dressing room will become a soggy, droopy mess when it gets wet, and the weight of the water drags it down even more. A fit that is just snug enough will also prevent the suit from riding up.
2. Coverage. Choose a suit that does more than cover the mandatory body parts. It should protect as much of her skin as possible. There is nothing worse than getting sunburned on the first day of vacation and then being unable to spend any more time on the beach. A rash guard, which is a tee-shirt style swim top, is a great choice. You can keep those sunburn-prone shoulders covered up. And if you wear another swimsuit, you can throw a rash guard on over it if you start to feel sunburn coming on, so you don’t have to let the sun drive you indoors.
3. For most young girls, swimwear won’t last more than one season. You probably don’t want to invest a ton of money in something that your daughter won’t wear for very long. You should still take quality into consideration, though. It’s worthwhile to spend a little more for girls swimwear that offers good sun protection all summer long.
Keep these tips in mind whenever you start shopping for girls swimwear, and you’ll be sure to enjoy a comfy, relaxing summer.
