Quick post today on Minnow, which is my #1 for kids’ swim. The company was founded by a mom—who now lives in Charleston—who wanted sun-kissed color palettes, purposeful details, custom prints, and high quality production. Every swimsuit features UPF, with the rash guard collection offering the most protection. (Which is what we mostly buy.)
While the suits are certainly an investment, they last. Emma’s hand-me-downs look brand new when I put them on Lucy, and I’m always somehow shocked! A tip would to be buy at the end of the season, when they sometimes go on sale. And if you’ve never ordered from Maisonette before, you can take 10 percent off their selection of Minnow with code “HELLO10.” Finally, J.Crew carries some Minnow!
For reference, Emma is almost six years old, and I buy her a size 7/8. She likely has one more year in this round of suits! Lucy just turned three, and she’s wearing a size 3/4 here.
Below are some of our favorite sun-safe suits! (Though always remember to apply sunscreen. This is our favorite kids’ brand. Find the rest of our beach/water play essentials here.)
