Kids swimsuits: our favorite brands this summer

It is often by packing our suitcases for the holiday that we realize how quickly children grow up. Last summer’s swimsuits are already too small, and you’d be wise to buy a size larger than currently necessary… You will enjoy the collections of this season, modern, creative and stuffed with fantasy to dress girls and boys on the beach, from 12 months to 12 years old.


Pacific Rainbow
With its sportswear look, its 90s colors and its Californian style, this is the 100% French brand we need for this summer. With swim shorts for boys, one-piece swimsuits or first bikinis for girls, they will look great at the beach club and will dry faster than others after swimming. From 2 to 14 years old.
Les Louves loves: to dare for the asymmetrical swimsuit for little girls (Gina model), and the Charlotte model, emblem of the brand, with its colorful pattern and its pretty low back.


Louise Misha
For babies who will be discovering sand for the first time this summer, try the bohemian and romantic spirit of Louise Misha: in a frilly little layered bikini or bloomer.
Les Louves loves: the “Basu Goa” pants, mustard print, and the “Blossom Iris” bloomers with ruffles and pompoms.

This brand smells of holidays and seaside, and it does not forget the little boys. They have a collection of shorts “like dad” with floral or starry patterns and modern tones. For the girls, we love the tropical printed “Monoi” with a neck strap. They have styles from 2 to 12 years old.
Les Louves loves: the color palette of the Sunchild x Bonton collaboration for this summer: lemonade yellow, cool brown, orange papaya or pink shell…

Stella Cove
For little girls as smart as they are creative, it’s impossible not to fall for the poetic, floral or graphic prints of Stella Cove’s one-piece swimsuits. Nightingales, white swans or butterflies: we particularly like the wildlife that walks on the beach freely. Their sizes are for kids 2 years and up.
Les Louves loves:the girly audacity and originality of this 100% American brand!

If you’re dreading sandy sunscreen application sessions on the beach, make it easier for yourself by dressing up your little ones with cut-and-dried anti-UV t-shirts that match their swimsuits. We liked the first Canopea collection, with its sleek and elegant cuts. We love this year’s line of one-piece swimsuits for girls and swim shorts for boys, classics and chic, always made of 100% recycled fiber and guaranteed SPF 50. Sizes are made for kids from 1 year to 10 years old.
Les Louves loves: the Frida suit for girls and its V-back style.
