Summer Swimsuit Guide

Summer is in full swing! But before you head to the beach, check out this ultimate swimwear guide for the family! Yes, momma; that includes a cute suit for you too!

               ONE                                          TWO                                  THREE

It’s all about protecting our little ones from the sun, but why not look cute doing it? This one-piece rash guard is a summer must-have and features 40+ UPF protection. My daughter has it in two colors and it is definitely one of my best summer purchases. This second suit screams summer, has an adorable mesh tutu, offers a UPF 50 rating, and is under $15.00. Target for the win! The last swimsuit is a two-piece rash guard. It is adorable and makes reapplying sunscreen that much easier.

Boys’ swim trunks keep getting cuter and cuter! Love the colors and the drawstring feature. The one-piece rash guards are really the way to go.  They provide complete coverage for your little one and protect their arms and shoulders from the summer sun. Finally, the last one isn’t a suit, but a short-sleeve rash guard. It can be paired with any swimsuit and just provides that extra coverage our little ones’ skin needs.

Ok, now for the tough one. A swimsuit for momma.  Is it just me, or are swimsuits getting smaller and smaller these days? Trying to find the perfect swimsuit as a mom has become an Olympic sport.  It takes blood, sweat, tears, and many, many trips to the dressing room. We want something stylish, but also practical enough to play in the sand and pool. Hopefully, I’ll save you a trip to the dressing room. Here are our top picks:

If you haven’t shopped at Athleta yet, I highly recommend it.  This two-piece offers nice coverage, has a cute shape, and is available in eight colors! I am in love with this second swimsuit.  The high waisted bottom and ruched back detail make this suit super flattering. Ok, ok.  The last suit is stunning but pricey. I own a few suits from L*Space Swimwear and I can say that they are well worth the money. They wash well, wear well, and remain in great shape season after season.

Happy swimsuit shopping! What are your go-to brands before you hit the beach?
