Summer is coming. Okay… it’s quite a few months away. NOOOO! But that’s exactly why we need to start thinking about cute and modest bathing suits for moms and awesome swimwear for kids. Post contains affiliate links.
People, summer is a coming!
I can’t wait.
I dream about it.
I like the smell of sunscreen more than coffee.
I don’t even drink coffee.
When I lived in Australia, all the kids wore rash guards.
My daughter showed up at the pool in her baby two-piece and even with 50+ SPF I got the death stare from other mothers. Whatever, I’m more secure than that. With time I began to realize rash shirts are cute, easy, and a foolproof way to prevents kids from getting burned when they’re outside all day.
Inexpensive Rash Shirts
Here are some rash guard shirts that are under $15. Prices may vary slightly by size, but these are the most inexpensive options in basic colors that you can pair with most swim trunks or swimsuits you already own. Honestly, you’ll be surprised how much longer the kids can stay out in the sun when they are wearing these things.

Medium to High-End Rash Gear
These are more expensive than the ones above but still reasonably priced. They don’t come with bottoms, but if you have solid colored bottoms or pair them with inexpensive bottoms or trunks from places like Wal-Mart or Target you’ll still get a relatively low priced suit for the summer season.

Rash Complete Outfits
These are the cutest to me. We have quite a few sets, both for my daughter and sons, and they usually come with a hat as well. I could die… If they are in bare skin they usually want to come in a lot sooner because when a hot sun beats down on their skin it feels uncomfortable. However, with these, they can get on with the playing.

I hope you’ve found a few rash guard suits you think are cute for your kids this summer. I assure you, we will be wearing ours. In fact, I even got my own rash guard shirt last summer from Land’s End that I wear regularly :)
