When you’re searching for your little babe’s swimsuit, you’re looking for a soft suit that will protect their delicate skin. One-piece bathing suits for babies usually include a rash guard, so your baby’s upper half is encased in what looks like a wetsuit. The entire suit has a UPF rating of 50+, so it will block out roughly 98 percent of UVA and UVB rays and allow 2 percent to pass through. These suits will protect your baby from sun damage.
We found the best baby one-piece swimsuits. Our picks include options for boys, girls and unisex suits. The suits all have zipper closures to make sure that your baby doesn’t wriggle out of their mini-wetsuit. Two of our options even come with little sun hats and caps to keep the sun off of their faces. These suits are both babies and toddlers. Toddlers also still should have suits with UPF protection.
These lightweight and quick-drying suits will ensure that your baby is comfortable as they play in the sun, water and maybe even sand. You’ll want to capture every moment of your child frolicking (or splashing) around for family, friends and your social media accounts, because these suits are truly Instagram-worthy. With sharks, stripes, polka dots, flowers, fish and more, you have plenty of vibrant suits to choose from.
