Shopping for Little Girls Swimwear: What Your Daughter Wants in her Swimsuit

There's a lot of controversy and confusion when shopping for little girls' swimsuits. Should you get your little girl a two-piece bikini or a one-piece? Ultimately it's up to the parent what swimsuit you buy for your daughter. However, with so many outlets trying to make your little one grow up faster than she's ready, it's hard to find a swimsuit you deem appropriate. At what age is it "okay" for your daughter to wear a bikini? How much is too much skin to show for young girls? These are questions you should ask before buying swimsuits for young girls in your household. If you're looking for modest yet fun swimsuits, Sears' collection of little girls' swimwear is unmatched.

What are the best swimsuits for little girls?

You're probably looking for a universal answer to the question, "What is the best swimsuit for little girls?" Unfortunately, there isn't just one answer. The type or style of bathing suit you get for your little girl, whether it's a one-piece or a two-piece, isn't what makes it "the best." Rather, it's what the suit looks like that makes it the best. What your daughter wants in her swimsuit is bright colors, some frills and cool prints, as well as poolside accessories.

Some one-piece bathing suits for girls come with ruffle skirts or attachable cover-up skirts for a little extra coverage. Parents won't have to worry much about their daughters exposing too much skin, especially the belly and midsection, when wearing a one-piece swimsuit. Brands are usually aware of all aspects of little girls' swimwear and try not to expose too much of the back as well.

Parents need to keep in mind there is more than just one type of two-piece swimsuits for little girls. Besides bikinis, there are tankinis and monokinis as more conservative alternatives. Tankinis look like one-pieces with a tank top-like top paired with a bikini bottom. If you're trying to come up with a compromise with your daughter between a one-piece and a two-piece a tankini still offers the versatility of mixing and matching tops and bottoms as well as keep most of her stomach covered. Monokinis offer a little more stomach exposure but do have a connective fabric between the two pieces.

Shopping for little girls' swimsuits can be more fun than shopping for swimsuits for you. Little girls' clothes and swimwear always have bright colors, fun embellishments and smiling pictures of their favorite characters. The type of bathing suit you buy for your daughter is completely up to you as a parent. You shouldn't have to jeopardize your comfort zone because more and more young girls' fashion is beginning to look like juniors' clothes. Your young daughter wants to go to the pool to have fun and play, not put on a fashion show. As long as your daughter reflects her personality through her clothes modestly, she'll shine and stand out. Don't forget with flip flops and sunglasses that match her swimsuit, your daughter will be the most adorable girl on the beach.
