Picking comfortable beachwear for young children is a little more difficult than finding fancy apparel for them. Beachwear/swimwear should always fit snugly, create a flattering shape and facilitate ease of movement. Following are some tips to help you choose the most comfortable beachwear for your kids.


In order to ensure that you are getting the most comfortable beachwear for your kids, you first have to determine the correct size. Choosing the right sized swimwear for your kids is the first step towards comfort and will make your kids look appealing. First of all take a measuring tape and measure your kids.

Make sure your children are clad only in underwear. The measuring tape should fit snugly around their bodies, but should not pinch them or feel tight around their bodies. Check to see that the measuring tape is straight. A twisted tape will provide wrong measurements.

For a girl child, you have to measure her waistline and torso. You can measure just the waistline for boys. To ensure the best and most comfortable fit, purchase a size that corresponds to your child’s current size of clothing. Or you can look up the sizing chart of Australian made children’s beachwear.

Athletic Beachwear

Athletic beachwear for kids come with support and cushioning for the major body parts, cover private areas and facilitate speedy movement in water. A popular choice is swimwear made of spandex that hugs the body snugly.


When it comes to Australian made children’s beachwear styles, you will be spoilt for choice. Boys can choose from shorts or Bermuda style swimwear, short, swimming trunks and beachwear/swimwear covering their entire body from neck to ankles.

Girls of course have a lot more options to explore. They can either opt for a cut out one piece or a conventional two piece or swimsuits with modesty frills. The back of the beachwear can be zipper style, V style, Y style or X style. Racer back beachwear is also popular among girls as are tank tops.


The third factor that determines beachwear comfort for kids is the fabric. Usually, Australian made children’s beachwear is crafted out of hybrid fabrics such as spandex and nylon. For a snug, stretchy fit, you can choose children’s beachwear made of spandex and Lycra. To prevent itching and rashes, it is best to search for beachwear with cotton lining for the crotch area. Choose a material that is durable, skin friendly, breathable and resistant to chlorine.


When you are purchasing children’s beachwear from online stores, you have a lot more variety to choose from. There are also infinite choices for colours, prints and styles for both sexes. You can even find swimsuits with pictures of their favourite animation or cartoon figures and these swimsuits are a perennial hit with kids of all ages.

It is also easier to find the correct sizes in online stores if you can measure properly. Online stores also offer beachwear at heavily discounted prices and you can even win a free shipping if you place bulk orders. Just do your research and check out the seller’s reviews and ratings before purchasing from them.
