Tankini with Boy Shorts
(Canton, OH, USA)
My daughter loves going to the beach or pool, but she hates girls bathing suits. She says they are so uncomfortable.
The elastic around the leg openings bothered her sensitive skin. She is also long waisted so she was always pulling her bathing suit up of down.
I didn’t want to buy her a bikini because she is only 5 and I don’t feel comfortable with her wearing something so revealing at a public beach or pool.
So last spring I was on a mission to find a kids swimwear
that my daughter could wear and actually enjoy swimming in.
I finally decided on trying a tankini with boy shorts. She was thrilled when she tried it on. But I was still skeptical, until I took her to the beach for the afternoon.
She didn’t complain once about being uncomfortable. I like the tankini with boy shorts because it isn’t at all revealing and it covers enough that she can move freely and not have to constantly tug at her bathing suit.
It was comfortable no matter what activity she was doing on the beach. Whether she was swimming, building sand castles, playing Frisbee, or just walking along the water's edge.
This spring I’ll be buying a few tankinis with boy shorts so my daughter can have her choice of which one to wear on our weekly trip to the beach.
Another plus of this style of girls bathing suits
is if your child tends to get taller but not necessarily need a bigger waist size, the tankini with boy shorts can get you through more than one summer because they won’t grow out of it as quickly.
