Summer just started and we’ve already spent a lot of time outdoors with my toddler. One thing I always worry about when we are out is whether or not she is getting too much sun. A few years ago I had bought her the cutest two piece swimsuit that was a tankini and bottoms. The reason I opted for a tankini was because I thought it covered most of her skin, and the bottoms came off easily for diaper changes. Now, we no longer have to worry about diaper changes- instead we have potty runs which seems like every 20 minutes!
At the beach, I started to notice that more and more moms were using rash guards for their kids as opposed to traditional swimsuits. I thought this was so much smarter because more of the skin was protected from the sun. This year, I skipped over the cute little swimsuit altogether and decided she would just have rash guard style swimwear.
Since rash guards are becoming more popular, it is easy to find cute styles. When GrUVyWear sent her the Melonicious UV Swimshirt and Bikini Skirt to review, we both fell in love with the cute summery pattern. She immediately wanted to wear it, so I decided to take her to the sprinklers in the park. We live in concrete-town NYC, so a beach or pool is hard to come by on a whim. Usually when we visit the sprinklers at the park, I slather her in sunscreen and let her wear her normal clothes- usually a tank top and shorts. I don’t want her walking around in her swimsuit. With the Melonicious set, she is mostly covered, so she only needs sunscreen on the parts that are exposed- her forearms, legs, and face. She can walk around in this set and even play at the park and I don’t have to worry about her being overexposed in a skimpy swimsuit.
