If you're looking for children's swimwear, we've written a little about what to look for and highlighted some of the most popular and best children's swimwear

When buying swimwear for your kids, it can quickly become overwhelming with the many varieties to choose from, especially if you're looking online. That's why we've written briefly about what to look for when it comes to getting your kids new swimwear.

Swimsuit, swimming shorts or swimsuit?

In general, look for something that is easy to put on and take off, and of course something that the kids will feel comfortable in. For girls, you can choose between a swimsuit or bikini, depending on how old the child is. For boys, there are several types of swim shorts, either loose or tight, that will suit a boy well. A swimsuit is a good choice for both sexes and there are plenty of colours to choose from. You will find a very large selection of swimwear for children at Kids - World or at the specialist FactorPhobia.

Swimwear with UV protection or not?

Much children's swimwear is woven to provide UV protection. This means that the sun's rays cannot penetrate the fabric. If you want to buy UV swimwear, you can choose something with the UV 801, as the garment is well tested and still protects against the sun's rays even when wet. However, if you choose swimwear without UV protection, you can still protect your children from the sun by using sunscreen and a sun hat and seeking shade between 12 & 3pm.

Please choose a size larger

Many swimsuits are a bit small, so it may be a good idea to choose a size larger than your child normally wears.

Get ready for the beach with beach sandals

Swim sandals for children are very stylish and practical to take with you to the beach. Children can wear the sandals even when they are out in the water, and they walk more safely over rocks and seaweed, with less risk of falling or stepping on a rock. The sandals are made to be worn on uneven and wet terrain, so children can easily wear them for swimming. Unfortunately, the Danish sands are not always clean white sand all the way, but lots of stones, jellyfish and seaweed and other things. It's all part of the experience, but with a pair of sandals, children can avoid getting hurt on a rock or similar.

Adidas Performance swim sandals

Very practical swim sandals from Adidas. They fit very well on the foot because of the mesh and they have a flexible sole, which still protects effectively against the hot sand or small sharp stones at the water's edge. The shoes are shown here in purple and pink, but are also available in more boyish colours. You can buy Adidas swim sandals right now here, where you will also find many other varieties.

Many parents end up buying Hummel swimwear for their children. Hummel swimwear is both very durable and in addition it has the practical uv 50+ protection. This means that the swimwear is woven in a certain way so that the sun's rays cannot penetrate, thereby providing children with extra protection from the sun's rays. However, UV swimwear should not replace sunscreen or a sun hat.

When choosing which swimwear to buy for your child, it's a good idea to choose the swimwear that suits the child's age. For the youngest children, it is advisable to consider a swimsuit with legs, and preferably with UV protection, which protects the child from the sun's strong rays. For slightly older children, swimwear with UV protection is still a good idea. For the larger sizes, a bikini or swimsuit is a popular choice for girls, while swim shorts are popular with boys.

Swimsuits for children from Hummel, Molo and Color Kids

Swimsuits are a type of swimsuit with legs and short sleeves. You can find swimsuits from many brands, including Hummel, Molo and Color Kids. Swimsuits come in different sizes, but are probably a most popular choice when it comes to swimwear for little babies. A swimsuit is easy to put on the baby or child as it often opens with a zip. When buying a swimsuit, it is a good idea to buy it one size larger than you normally buy for your baby, as swimsuits are often slightly smaller in size. Also, it's not nice to wear a swimsuit that's too small.
