Everyone loves a cute swimsuit, but after the Aquatic Safety Connection launched their campaign in 2019 showing the visibility of certain colors underwater, we’re definitely thinking more about safety when we consider the best kids’ swimsuits. Check out this graph from @aquaticsafetyconnection:

Their recommendations for the best kids’ swimsuits?

  • Neon colors are winners
  • Small patterns (light or dark) don’t seem to impact visibility significantly
  • Large, dark patterns do make a difference and decrease visibility
  • Remember visibility is so much better on the surface
  • Think bright + contrasting colors

And, the most important takeaway? The color they’re wearing won’t matter if an adult isn’t present and watching at all timesIn fact, they recommend only allowing your little ones to participate in swimming activities only if you’re the one there. They even have a formula for politely declining offers from other adults to supervise.

We want keeping our littles safe in the water to be as easy as possible, so we’ve put together some of our favorite swimsuits in Aquatic Safety Connection’s approved colors that you can snag right on Amazon! Here’s to a safe and fun swimming season.
