Swimsuits for Girls

With Summer officially kicking off in just a couple short weeks I’ve been on the hunt for cute swimwear for Shae. I’m not big on the bikini for kids but I do love a fun tankini and super colorful one-pieces. Bathing suits as well as all clothing should be reflective of the child’s personality. This swimsuit and accessory round up are a collection of a few pieces that would fit Shae to a T.Swimsuits and Accessories for Girls Round Up

Chafe Free Swim Shorts Coastal Dog Apparel

Each year we head to the beach as much as we can get there. It’s one of our favorite places to be as a family. First we hit the beach then we clean up and do dinner and rides.  I don’t think my kids will ever grow old of doing rides.  One thing Shaun grows old of is the chafing from his swim trunks. The sand and water put  a beating on his legs. I’m usually armed with powders and creams.  I don’t have to do that anymore. Coastal Dog Apparel has saved my son’s legs so he can play for hours without the discomfort of chafing.

It may not have been true beach weather but that didn’t stop Shaun from jumping in the ocean and swimming out with the other nuts.  He spent all his time out there with a couple breaks for food and water.  When we were packing up I asked him how he felt. He was so happy. He didn’t feel any discomfort or pain creeping up. No rash was developing. His chafe free shorts worked.  The walk back to the car or hotel is usually murder but he didn’t have one complaint.Coastal Dog Chafe Free Swim Shorts

Lime Ricki Swimwear Review #summerfun #swimsuits

Spring may have just started but I’m already thinking of summer. More specifically I’m thinking about our summer vacation aboard the Carnival Breeze. It’s been a couple of years since we’ve taken a summer vacation so this is going to be special.

Sabreena is 18, has a slim but curvy body but is quite modest. She actually prefers full coverage bathing suits.  She’s not going out in rash guards or swim shorts but she keeps it family friendly. Lime Ricki offered up a  suit for review and she’s quite pleased with the outcome.

The TIED-BUST BLACK TANKINI TOP offers a  modern twist on a retro look with panels of colorful floral print and polka dotted and beaded ties.  Paired with a basic black bikini bottom it’ll work for swimming, sunbathing, lounging on the Lido deck or playing with Shae at the water park. The adjustable drawstring on the bust gives ample room for bigger boobs.  This is something Sabreena was very nervous about. Finding separate pieces is the only way to go when shopping for swimsuits since her top and bottom run different sizes.  I’m sure this runs true for many women.

The pattern and color selections from Lime Ricki aren’t typical. It’s a unique mix of stripes, checks, animal prints and ruffles. Each suit or combo has its own personality to match that of the wearer.

Lime Ricki was started by 3 sisters and has grown to include men’s swimwear and 2 retail stores in Utah. The brand was created for the very reason Sabreena liked the selections, wanting modest but fun swimwear.

Feel good about shopping Lime Ricki as 10% of their sales of PINK SWIMSUITS go into Breast Cancer Research and 10% of all other swimsuit purchases go to Charity:Water. This happens to be Sabreena’s favorite charity.  A couple of years back Sabreena sold some of her original drawings and artwork  in order to make a donation to Charity:Water.




Stella Cove Swimwear for Kids

Summer is almost here. This week we have sunshine and temps in the 70’s. That means I went through the kids drawers and sorted and weeded out the outgrown clothes and bathing suits. Shae is starting off on the right foot though because she got a swimsuit from Stella Cove.

Stella Cove is a collection of ultra trendy high end swimwear for kids and women. Shop maillots, bikinis, fitted and board shorts, surf guards, dresses and cover ups, and the new line of sunglasses French Terry robes and towels.

No obnoxious cartoon characters here. You’ll find classic florals mixed with funky graphics and geometric shapes in both one-piece swimsuits and bikinis. Shae is 5, in my opinion too young for a triangle bikini but there were some adorable sports top styles to choose from.

We were able to take the kids to a local waterpark last weekend. That was the perfect time to break in her new designer swimsuit. It looked great on her. Coverage was appropriate for her age and the design was unique. A word of warning though, sizing runs small. The suit she is wearing is a 10, she normally wears a 7-8. I was advised to go up a size so I wasn’t surprised by this.
