So far this year, we’ve chatted about this…
In January, we chatted about our verses of the week.
In February, we chatted about quality time with our kids.
In March, we chatted about canning.
In April, we chatted about family fun ideas.
And today, we’re going to chat about…swim suits!
I would say that in the last week, I’ve had at least 10 emails about where I get swimsuits for myself and my kids.
This is where I get our stuff, but if you have a place where you love to get swimsuits for your family, PLEASE SHARE! I’m such a creature of habit when it comes to suits, and can always use new suggestions.
When it comes to my kids, my very favorite place to buy their swimsuits is Old Navy.
Easy as that.
…Smith’s is from Old Navy (here) and Kensington wore 3 Old Navy suits on our Disney cruise, but of course, I didn’t get any fantastic pictures. The one day, she wore a suit from Nordstrom, is when I took the most pics. Sigh. I do love this suit though 🙂 .
I like to buy them at Old Navy because I feel they wash well (I never dry them, I hang them up), don’t fade, are at a great price and last all summer. My kids swim every.single.day during the summer, so they need suits that last.
…like this one.
Side note for all of you new mamas to little girls…don’t buy them one pieces if they wear a flotation device. If you buy them a one piece and then put on the flotation device, then you have to remove the floatie in order to change their diaper/take them potty. And in my opinion, nothing is worse then taking off and then putting back on a wet floatie. I buy the two pieces (like tankinis) and life is so much easier. You learn this kind of stuff by your third daughter 😉 .
So, where do I buy all of my swimsuits?
I started wearing Athleta swimsuits like 7 years ago and haven’t looked back.
They have a more athletic fit (so your bootie isn’t hanging out of the back of skimpy bottoms), they make one pieces, tankinis and bikinis, they wash to perfection and LAST year after year after year. They are my absolute favorite!
Over the summer, I pretty much wear swimsuits and workout clothes every day (because I always want to be dressed to play!), so I like it when they are durable and can be worn many seasons in a row.
Okay, what brands do you love for swimwear? I’m always interested in trying something else! Please comment and share!
