Swimsuits have been used since the 18th century. In that period,
women were using swimsuits as long dresses that didn't become transparent when they got wet. In the 19th century, the most common swimsuits were the two pieces kind. Back then, kids swimsuits hadn't been invented yet.
These days you can find lots of models of UV swimwear or swimsuits for kids. They come in different shapes, sizes, models, and colors. You can buy swimwear for girls, swimsuits for boys or you can also purchase unisex kinds for both genders. For boys, it is easier to find UV swimsuit because there aren't too many different styles available. You can buy the underwear briefs or trunks which come in different sizes and models, with various patterns or colored ones. For girls, this task becomes much harder because you will have to choose from the one-piece swimsuits (also known as tank suits), the 2 pieces kind or the bikini. You will also have to match the UV swimsuit to your little girl's personality. She should be comfortable in it and her shouldn't feel embarrassed when wearing it (if you choose the bikini style).
There are thousands of types of patterns for kids swimwear. Your little man will love the ones with his favorite cartoon characters. If you have a girl, then she would love the beautifully colored ones or the swimsuits with flowers, butterflies, ladybugs or even those that have flounce around the waist. You should ask her which is her favorite before actually buying it.
Because of hygiene concerns, it is also very important to have backup kids swimsuits every time you go to the pool or beach. Germs and bacteria can grow quickly on wet kids swimwear. The specialists recommend having two swimsuits because if your kid wears a wet swimsuit for a long period of time, he or she could get a a large number of infections and rashes such as vaginal infections for girls and itching for boys. They also recommend not sharing your kids' swimsuit with other children.
