Baby and toddler swimsuit shopping guide
Find the perfect swimsuit for your little water bug and get a great deal on it too.
Best rash guard
Lands’ End - Don't take your baby or toddler to the beach without a high-quality rash guard. Lands' End, one of the most recognized names in quality swimwear, makes a rash guard that is quick-to-dry and features built-in UPF 50 sun protection.
With short sleeves and a mock neck, this lined top provides great coverage, fits close to the body and won’t balloon under water. Your child will outgrow it before he or she can wear it out. Add embroidery or a monogram to personalize the rash guard for your little beachcomber.
Easiest on-off swimsuit
SwimZip - You'll love the full-length zipper on SwimZip's comfy UV50+ swimwear for babies and toddlers. No more struggling with pulling a tight, wet suit over your child’s head. Just unzip and you’re done. Chlorine-resistant SwimZip suits block 99 percent of harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Tiny guys will look awesome in Surfer Dude, which includes a rash guard and board shorts for just $30.
The Children’s Place - We love the colorful, affordable swimwear at The Children's Place.
