Swim season is fast approaching, and parents know what that means: shopping for adorable tiny bathing suits! Of course, there's no way you have time to scour the internet looking at every option, so we’ve compiled a shortlist for your perusal. We’ve covered plenty of price points, so whether you want something high-end or are on a budget, there's an option for you here. And regardless of the price or style, kids are sure to make a splash in any of these suits.

Some trends we’re loving? The mermaid look is still going strong, for one (obv), and Target has a fun option for that look. Retro trunks are a groovy addition to this year’s offerings, and there's a variety of vibrant prints to choose from — from tie-dye to festive fruits. Sporty '90s looks (like our choice from Gap Kids) are popular, as is mom-and-me matching. 

From board shorts to modern trunks, ruffled bikinis to sun-safe one-pieces, there’s something for every water baby (and kid) right here.
