The Best Swimwear Brands For Kids in 2017

 With all these choices, you're sure to find something you and your kids can agree on.

The Salty Baby

The mompreneur behind The Salty Baby was fed up with difficult diaper changes at the beach and set out to create fun and functional swimsuits for the diaper-wearing set. She hit the nail on the head with these adorable swimsuits that have snaps between the legs for easy diaper changes. Even better, they make classy, grown-up suits so mom and baby can match. 

Shop: Girls Layna One-Piece in Freebird ($25)


Tom & Teddy

Tom & Teddy is making sure boys and their fathers aren't getting left out of the matching swimsuit game. These colorful trunks come in beachy, tropical prints that are fun for little guys and big guys alike. Top off your look with a matching rash guard (in short or long sleeves) and you'll be stylish and safe.

SwimZip is more than supercute sun protection, it's a passion. Creator Betsy Johnson was diagnosed with skin cancer at just 26 years old, and her diagnosis drove her to do something meaningful to help others avoid the same fate. Enter SwimZip, named for its zipper-front rash guards that look great on and are easy to take off. With a lineup of suits for men, women, boys, and girls (all rated UPF 50+), you can outfit the whole family in one virtual shopping trip.
