Browse our range of boys swimwear and get your son ready to hit the beach or pool this summer with the right swimwear. Board shorts and swim trunks are popular options and it’s so sweet to see little boys channel their dads. For sensitive skin and to offer more sun protection consider adding a rash vest to your cart. It’ll prevent chaffing, especially in salt water and it protects your son’s skin from harsh UVA and UVB rays. The obvious addition is a wide brim hat and plenty of sunscreen with a high SPF. Look out for the coordinated rash vest and swimming trunks sets – perfect for young boys who are learning to swim by themselves and like to spend plenty of time in the water. Some of our sets include a swimming cap, so all he’ll need is a pair of goggles for underwater time and he’s ready to dive in.
When looking for the right size remember that boys swimwear should be snug, but not too tight. If it’s too tight, it can cause irritation and chafing, especially when you’re on the beach with salt water and sand. Swimwear should not be too loose either. If the waistband is too loose or the shorts too baggy the swimsuit can fall down and interfere with swimming. The fabric should fit smoothly against the body and waistbands or leg holes shouldn't be too tight. A drawstring swimming costume is often the best option as it can fit firmly but also gives some growing room. For very young boys, who are learning to swim, swimming trunks or brief are usually the best option as they don’t inhibit movement when he’s learning to kick and float.
