Get your teen in comfy swimwear
I remember that as a teen, I would always be very conscious about wearing bikinis because I still had some baby fat. Another friend of mine was slightly heavier on the top, which made her shy of the same too. Like me, I know that a girl’s confidence levels, when they’re in their middle school and high school years are always very low.
So if they’re ever self-conscious about their body then wearing something like a tankini is the perfect solution. It still gives you the fun aspect of wearing a swimsuit but covers areas that they might not want to emphasize. Thankfully, unlike back then, you can get some chic and trendy junior tankini swimsuits easily.
Remember that your little girl is growing up and so she wants something that is fashionable but not boring. You can take her shopping with you and suggest this or even ask her older sister or cousin to suggest the same. Believe me, teenagers always idolize stars their age. So, to convince her, talk about how gorgeous Miley Cyrus was looking in a floral tankini that she recently sported at a beach vacation.
Ask her to check out some contemporary styles like this Malibu Dream Girl tankini, which takes you straight to the beach. It features a striped pattern and floral graphic print. The girls’ racerback tankini set is perfect for a day in the sun and comes with coordinating cover-up skirt to ensure she’s stylish in the water or on the shore. With these tie accents on the scoop bottoms and skirt to add a cute touch, she will not be beach or pool shy anymore.
Another alternative that you check out are mesh swimsuits. These one piece suits feature trendy necklines that are figure flattering but modest enough for a teen. Pick out funky color options like corals, tangerine or even fuchsia. A chic cover up completes the beach ensemble.
