During the summer months, boys like to spend a lot of time in the water whether it’s in a swimming pool, the ocean, or a river. Wherever your son likes to spend time, it is essential that he has swimwear he likes. It can be hard to find swimwear that he will ask to wear, but there are some tips that will make it easier. Here is how to find the best swimwear for boys:
· Look for pockets that close in some manner. Boys tend to find treasures while playing outdoors. These pockets will give him a place to store them without coming out of the water. In addition, a pocket can hold money or house keys so your son will not lose them while splashing around. Swim trunks often come with these pockets and manufacturers of rash guards are starting to add them also.
· Make sure the swim suit fits comfortably. Your son will need swimwear that allows him to move around and play with his friends. The waist should fit well and give him room to grow. Boys tend to do this quite a bit. A drawstring at the waist is the best choice as you can adjust the fit as your son grows.
· Built-in sun protection benefits both you and your son. Manufacturers now realize this and make rash guards and swim trunks with this protection built in. Choose swimwear labeled SPF 40 or SPF 50 as they offer the most benefit. This will protect your son from skin damage.
· Choose a fun pattern or bright colors so your son will be eager to wear his swimwear. Many now feature cartoon characters or other designs so be sure to look for your son's favorite. The best way to do this is to take your son shopping with you. Allowing him to choose his own trunks will make it more likely that he will actually use them.
Boys tend to be less picky about what they wear. As long as the clothes are comfortable and give him plenty of storage options, most likely your son will be happy. By following the above tips, you should be able to get something you will both love.
