Years of my own experience should have clued me in, but until I had a daughter and bought her a cute 1-piece cherry-patterned swimsuit from Target, I hadn’t fully realized that 1-piece swimsuits are REALLY CHALLENGING to pee in. It can be a little tricky to find a cute non-bikini 2-piece for a toddler girl, especially at the BEGINNING OF JULY when summer is OVER.
I like the Embroidered-Flower Tankini from Old Navy. I wish it had regular tank-top straps rather than a halter top, but I still like it.
I like the Floral Tankini from The Children’s Place even better, but I wonder if the top might float up in the water?
The Circo Rashguard suit from Target seems sensible: not only a 2-piece, but less sunscreen to apply and no shoulder straps to fuss with.
I like the Sea Spray Skirted Two-Piece from L.L. Bean so much, I was just going to go ahead and order it ($8.99 down from $24.50!)—but the largest size it comes in is 3T, and Elizabeth wears a 4T.
Lands’ End has a nice Scrunchback Tankini, which is not only adorable but comes in about a dozen different pretty fabrics—it’s tempting to buy two for mixing and matching.
