Beachwear for girls

Do you remember the excitement of going swimming when you were young?  You can see it in your kids' faces now when you mention going to the beach or the pool - instant delight, for most of them!  It's just so much fun for small people to be in the water, and it's a great option to fill in time during the warmer days of spring and summer.  You just need some of the right gears and you'll be good to go.

There are heaps of options for girls to stay cool and protected from the sun this summer.  Here are some of our faves - vintage florals are everywhere, and so pretty!:

Beachwear for girls

bond-306
Hello, seahorses!  This Bond-Eye Beach Girl Neon Animal Short Sleeve Frill Rashie Set is gorgeous and comes in sizes 3-7.  Frill detail on the top and the bottom makes this two piece a bit special.
red primrose swim bubble-85
For smaller kiddos, an "adorable girls swimsuit with frill skirt and reusable, integral swim nappy to keep accidents contained without the use of another nappy" is a very useful item.  This is the Girls Swim Bubbles - Red Primrose swimsuit, available in sizes 6 months - 3 years.
toddler-girls-the-bumble-bee-funkita-31-625
Your little girl is going to want to use this one for dress ups as well as poolside, because she'll be cute as a bumblebee in it.  It's the Toddler Girls - The Bumblebee Funkita and is sold through funkies.co.nz.  With chlorine-resistant polyester and racerback straps, it's a practical option with a fun element.
 
rebel-34

This Rival Girls Poprock Bridgeback Swimsuit has bridgeback straps - guaranteed to stay in place no matter what water fun takes place.  What a brilliant mix of colour and traditional swimsuit.  It will be sure to go the distance!
 

1211 extra-737

If you're in the market for a tankini, how could you go past these adorable whales?  Featuring racer back straps, low rise watershorts and a cute blue trim, it's fab.  Sizes 2-8 come in at only $50.00 - a bargain.
 

floral swimsuit

I love this vintage rose print swimsuit with cute ballerina-style frill on the bottom half.  Designed in Australia and available from Baby Avenue.
 

Board shorts

964G-171

Board shorts are so useful - they can be worn as shorts, which is great if your daughter might end up playing with water at Playcentre or Kindy and you want them to be able to dry off quickly.  Or throw them over multiple combinations of swimwear for added protection/comfort/style... this pair is the Aqua Vintage Floral Boardie from Snapper Rock.

roxy-665

Roxy makes the Beach Bound board short in sizes 2-7, which feature a front tie and "resistant stretch polyamide for shape and colour retention".
 

Accessories

XY8808-124-922
Keep little feet from getting burnt on hot sand with a practical and cute sun shoe. 
 
1800-297 swim bag
Here's a tip - when you've washed a swim bag, towel and togs, store the dry items somewhere in the bag, and you'll be able to get everyone off to the pool without a moment's hesitation!  This option is the waterproof Pink/White Stripe by Snapper Rock, $20.
hat-169
Baby Avenue make these adorable sun hats in the same prints as many of their swimsuits.  This is the Girls Floppy Sunhat in Red Primrose, and has a wide enough brim to offer some protection to little necks and shoulders, too.


Here's to a long, hot summer! Post photos of your fun in the summer sun to our Facebook page - we'd love to see your beautiful kids enjoying the warmer weather and wearing their swimwear with style.  Enjoy!
