Summer is HERE in South Jersey and, if your kids are anything like mine, they are ready for days at the beach, swimming in the pool, and running through the sprinklers. You know what all of these activities have in common? You guessed it: a need for bathing suits! Target is one of my go-to stores for bathing suits for my boys because they’re reasonably priced, they wash well, and…let’s be honest…I do Target runs pretty often, so might as well just grab them there! This week, Targets in New Jersey, and across the nation, are offering swimsuits for the entire family Buy One Get One 50%, so it’s the perfect time to stock up for the season. In addition to the sale, you could save an additional 5% off when using your redcard, so keep that in mind!
For this article, we’re sticking with recommendations for kids bathing suits. Little Dude and I stopped by Target this morning and we found some super cute sets. Personally, I prefer my boys to wear rash guards because they provide an extra layer of protection against the sun’s harmful rays. I also prefer those rash guards to be a light color because lighter colors tend to reflect the sun and absorb less heat than darker colors. In addition, I prefer bathing suits and clothing to be a brighter color (like neon) because I feel like, from a safety standpoint, if I somehow get separated from my kids, it’ll be easier to see them if they’re wearing a neon orange top than a black top. I’m probably just overreacting, but it makes me feel better and that’s not a bad thing.
Here are my top picks for Kid’s Bathing Suits at Target. If you’d like to purchase the bathing suit, just click on the photo provided. In case you are wondering, this article does not have ANY affiliate links, so I will not benefit financially from any purchases you make as a result of this article – I’m just sharing the love of cute bathing suits! We’ll do girl’s bathing suits first and then suits for the boys. I also need to mention that, as a mom of a son who sometimes needs the “husky” sizes, I am SO glad that Target has so many of their bathing suits and rash guards in standard AND extended sizing. THANK YOU for including kids of all sizes, Target!
Girl’s Bathing Suits
If I had a little girl, you can bet this would be one of my purchases – I am a sucker for pink and navy blue combos and am loving the pattern mixing going on here. Available in sizes 3m, 6m, and 9m, this floral bathing suit is currently $13.99 (also available for $15.99 in sizes 12M, 18M, 2T, 4T, and 5T) and comes with the sweetest little navy and white striped bottom (see the ruffles?!) and a super cute floral rash guard. Super cute opportunity for matching sibling bathing suit sets if you have girls close in age/size.
This Unicorn Bathing Suit Set meets my requirement for being a light color and is super adorable. Currently $13.99 and available in sizes 3m, 6m, and 9m, (also available in sizes 12m, 18m, 2T, 3T, 4T and 5T for $15.99) this set comes with bottoms with the same cute ruffles as the previous suit and a long-sleeved rash guard – both with a sweet unicorn print. Another awesome opportunity for matching sibling suits if your girls are close in age!
Sweet and juicy watermelon is pretty much a requirement for summer, so this Watermelon Bathing Suit Set absolutely HAS to be included in our bathing suit pics. The little ruffle at the bottom of the rash guard totally has me wishing I had a little girl to buy bathing suits for! Available in 3-6M, 6-9M, 9-12M, and 12-18M, this suit is selling out fast online, so act quick if your little lady needs this suit. Currently $11.99 for the set, this comes with striped bottoms and a watermelon themed rash guard, complete with heart shaped “seeds.”
Available in sizes 2T, 3T, 4T, 5T, 6, and 6x, this Lobster Mermaid Bathing Suit Set meets my “light color” requirement and is so fun with the imaginative lobster mermaid character. Currently $13.99 for the set, I love the unexpected color combo of red, white and aqua.
So, these two pieces do not come as a set, but I thought they paired well for an untraditional bathing suit set. Available in sizes S, M, L, XL, M Plus, L Plus, and XL Plus and currently $12.99, I love that the “Swim Like a Mermaid” Rash guard is white so that it’ll reflect the sun and match with any bathing suit you already have or will purchase. The text is iridescent, too! The Hot Pink Ruffled Pocket Bathing Suit Shorts (they are hot pink and not coral like the Target website says) are currently $12.99, available in sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, M Plus, L Plus, and XL Plus, and are a cute bathing suit bottom that will provide more coverage than your typical bikini bottom.
Does this set come in adult sizes? Asking for a friend wink wink, nudge nudge. Sold as two seperate pieces, the Mermaid Bathing Suit is a one-piece suit with long sleeves built right in. Available in sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, M Plus, L Plus, and XL Plus and currently $19.99, this suit could be worn on it’s own, but…really…how can you allow that when there is a matching mermaid tail?! Now, for whatever reason, I’m having trouble finding the matching tail online – the suit is aqua, but the mermaid tail is listed as turquoise? You may want to visit an actual Target store so both pieces can match. The tail is available in sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, M Plus, L Plus, and XL Plus and is currently $14.99.
Boy’s Bathing Suits
Love me some bathing suits that can double as a Beatles reference. Octopus’ Garden, anyone?! Super adorable, this set comes in 3m, 6m, and 9m, for $17.99 12M & 18M (for $17.99), and 2T, 3T, 4T, and 5T for $19.99. If you have boy sibling sets that are close in age, you’ve got yourself an opportunity for some matching suits here! The under-the-sea theme is so fun and I love that the rash guard is light in color!
This lobster (lobstah?) long-sleeved rash guard set has all bases covered with a light colored rash guard that’s ALSO long-sleeved – SCORE! Plus, lobsters wearing sunglasses are funny! Currently available for $17.99 in sizes 3M, 6M, and 9M $19.99 in sizes 12M, 18M, 2T, 4T, and 5T, your little guy is sure to have a blast in this set.
I picked this set because, really, it’s funny to think that a shark would need to use a rubber ducky float to swim, amiright?! The short-sleeved rash guard is a light color and I totally appreciate any clothing that has a bit of humor to it. Currently available for $11.99 for size 3M, and $17.99 for sizes 6M and 9M and $17.99-$19.99 for sizes 12M, 18M, 2T, 3T, 4T, and 5T, this is another opportunity for siblings close in age/size to have matching suits!
This set combines pieces from two different brands, but the colors match so well! The Shark Spotting Rash Guard is currently $12.99 and is available in sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, M Husky, L Husky, and XL Husky. The Alien Art Swim Trunks are currently $12.99 and available in sizes 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 8 Husky, 10 Husky, 12 Husky, 14 Husky, and 16 Husky. Online reviews recommend sizing UP in the swim trunks for the best fit.
If my 7 year old was picking out a new bathing suit set, I can bet that this is the set he’d want because he LOVES the color orange. I put this set together because I LOVE how bright the orange rash guard is and thought the floral bottoms were fun and summery. The Orange Shark Pocket Rash Guard is currently $12.99 and available in sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, M Husky, L Husky, and XL Husky. The Floral Swim Trunks are currently $12.99 and available in sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, M Husky, L Husky, and XL Husky.
Last, but certainly not least, this set also meets all my boys bathing suit set requirements – this bright lime, long sleeved rash guard will do a great job at protecting skin and reflecting the heat of the sun! Currently available for $12.99, this Lime Green Rash Guard is available in sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, M Husky, L Husky, and XL Husky. The Neon Swim Trunks are available in sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, M Husky, L Husky, and XL Husky.
