Whether its cannon-balls or playing in the sand, kids are always on the go! Trips to the beach are children’s favorite summer activity and the right choice of bathing suit will allow your little “dolphins” to enjoy it to the full! So what should we pay attention to when choosing a swim suit for our children?
The material of the bathing suit is the major factor that defines how comfortable it is. Nylon and polyester make for soft and elastic fabrics, ideal for the vigorous activity of children at the beach. Also, many brands make bathing suits from eco-conscious materials, friendly both to children’s sensitive skin and to the environment.
Bathing suits for infants
The top priority in choosing bathing suits infants is how easy it will be to change them. Nappy-suits are an excellent solution, as they are seamless where they touch the baby’s skin and protect your baby from moisture. Opt for a bikini or monokini if you have a baby girl and elastic boxer or Bermuda type bathing shorts for baby boys, which are easy to change.
Bathing suits with sun protection
You can also find bathing suits which offer sun protection, equal to that provided by sunscreen. Bathing suits or sets with Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) protect from both UVA and UVB radiation and are ideal for protecting children’s sensitive skin from the damaging effects of exposure to the sun.
Beware the straps
Straps and thin or tight-fitting bands may create redness or rashes on children’s sensitive skin. Especially in girls’ bathing suits, it is very important that the straps are adjustable. Also, the straps must not be very thin, because they will cut into children’s skin.
