Your tween and teen boys can embrace summer with our range of boys’ swimwear. He can choose a new pair of boardshorts – the most popular choice among tweens and teens as they might feel a bit shy about wearing anything tighter. Boardshorts also standout as they are both on-trend and comfortable so they’ll feel relaxed whether they’re hanging out around the pool or at the beach. Boardies have characteristically longer hems than traditional trunks and have a lot more room for a more relaxed fit. Look for options with a slightly shorter hem line, which finishes mid-thigh. These are ideal for shorter boys who still want a relaxed fit.
When swimsuit shopping for your tween and teen boys, remember that the fit will either hug their hips or waist, depending on the style they choose. To have your bases covered, measure around both so you know which size to order once they’ve chosen the style they like. Boardshorts with adjustable ties or drawstrings in the front offer a better fit and will generally stay in place regardless of the beach or activity your son is busy with. This definitely helps reduce any unwanted swimwear malfunctions. There are a variety of colours, patterns and prints for your son to choose from. The rule of thumb is to stick to solid colours for briefs or swimming trunks and then consider bright colour blocking or bold graphic prints on boardshorts. Let him choose an option he’ll want to wera all summer long. The fabrics are also good quality so that they’ll last even when put through the paces of swimming, beach volleyball and spending every day outdoors. For extra sun protection, particularly for younger boys, consider getting a rash vest. It’ll prevent chaffing and reduce sun burn.
