We know that tween girls can be hard to shop for — they’ve outgrown little girl sizes but aren’t quite ready for teen styles. To make your life easier, we’re sharing the best swimsuit brands for tween girls this year. Plus, cover-ups and poolside accessories that are so much fun. Shop our favorites by clicking directly on the collage above and scroll down to see a list of our favorite swimsuit brands for tween girls.
First, here are a few tips when shopping for girls in the 8-12 age range. For girls who are are self-conscious about their developing bodies, look for suits with a thicker fabric or a ruffle or pattern around the bust area. Girl sizes don’t fit? Many brands have adult XXS sizing which may work better than girls’ sizing. Finally, order early in the year for best selection because many of these cute and age appropriate brands styles sell out by the time summer hits!
