My kids love to swim! With their fair skin I make sure they always have some type of rash guard or swim shirt. The last few I have purchased have not lasted long. By August they have holes, loss stitching and fading. Can anyone recommend a brand of rash guard or swim shirt for kids that hold up well?
We just took advantage of the Land's End 40% off sale! They have boys & girls rashguards in short and long sleeve. My swimsuit is from here and I have been very happy with the quality so I felt good about investing in a nice suit for the kiddo.
I was actually shocked that our rash guard from old navy is still going strong for a 2nd summer. I buy everything a size up and it still fits him now. We were in the pool a lot last year and it is still great for this summer.
We have had great luck with Mini Boden and Hanna Andersson rash guards. Both are excellent quality. And though they are a little bit on the expensive side, we have gotten at least 2 swim seasons out of them. Also, a couple of years ago, I got my daughter a long sleeved one piece with SPF built in. At that time they were hard to find, but it is such a great rash guard alternative. I now am seeing them everywhere.
