Choosing a swimsuit for a 10-year-old girl
In anticipation of the beautiful days that arrive earlier and earlier each year, you can already anticipate the purchase of a 10-year-old girl's swimsuit. Better to start early than to wait until the last moment when the model you wanted is no longer in stock or no longer available in the right size or color.
However, there is no need to rush without having taken the time to define what type of swimsuit you want to buy for your 10-year-old daughter. If you don't want to make a mistake in your choice, this article is here to help you find the best swimsuit for your child.
Your daughter's morphology, size, type of swimsuit, build quality and comfort are all factors to consider when buying a new swimsuit for her 10-year-old daughter.
The different types of 10-year-old girl swimsuits
Less common among adults in favor of bikinis, one-piece swimsuits are clearly more common among children and especially pre-teens. The one-piece swimsuit is therefore a rather obvious choice for a 10-year-old girl.
It is suitable for all body types, from slim to rounder sizes . Regarding the variety of one-piece swimsuit models, it is based above all on a few details and finishes, as well as on colors, patterns and prints.
The one-piece swimsuit is essential in certain situations, and more specifically for swimming where the one-piece model offers better performance compared to that of a bikini.
The main advantage of two-piece swimsuits is that they offer more variety of choices . Indeed, there are several shapes of bottoms (high waist, low waist, shorty…) and several shapes of tops (triangle, bandeau…) which allows a multitude of combinations. However, for a 10-year-old girl's swimsuit (or 12-year-old girl's swimsuit ), this observation is less true.
As with the one-piece models, the bikinis offer several styles of finishes and a wide choice of colors, patterns and prints for children from 10 years old.
The two-piece swimsuit is often more pleasant and more comfortable. It is very suitable for the beach and for the leisure pool.
Note that the tankini is a mix between the one-piece model and the bikini, since it consists of a tank top.
Play with colors and patterns
While a teenager will want to choose her swimsuit herself, for 10-year-old girls you still have your say. Of course, that doesn't mean you have to impose your choice even if your daughter doesn't like the model you're suggesting. Nevertheless, before adolescence a girl tends to be less demanding and to listen more easily to the opinion of her parents .
Therefore, to choose a 10-year-old girl's swimsuit, you can clearly detach yourself from current fashion and leave more room for your own tastes.
No need to follow trend color or patterns. If you find that a color goes perfectly with your daughter, the girl swimsuit is the ideal garment to enjoy, because no one will judge a 10-year-old girl's swimsuit.
Ditto for the patterns and other prints, you will be able to choose those of your choice. Nevertheless, each generation of children has the right to its characters and its ultra-widespread brands. Don't be surprised if your daughter wants a swimsuit from this or that brand.
In any case, 10-year-old girls' swimsuits come in a multitude of different colours, patterns and prints. And for the two-piece models you can even opt for a mismatched set by playing on different colors and patterns between the bra and the slip.
How to measure the quality of a 10-year-old girl's swimsuit?
If you want your child's swimsuit to last all season, or even several seasons, turn to a quality model. But what is quality for a 10-year-old girl's swimsuit?
The resistance of the swimsuit is one of the main criteria for evaluating its quality. More specifically, it must be sufficiently resistant so as not to tear at the slightest contact or following repeated washing in the machine .
Similarly, to prevent the swimsuit from rubbing off, choose a model designed in a material UV resistant , i.e. to the sun's rays. Otherwise, the pretty red swimsuit may turn faded pink very quickly. The color and patterns must also withstand successive washes .
You should also study manufacturing quality .
The origin of the country in which the 10-year-old girl's swimsuit was designed is a clue, as are the materials used and the finishes, including the seams. Visually, the difference between an entry-level model and a high-end girl's swimsuit is obvious.
At Miska Paris we have chosen to offer you top-of-the-range girls' swimsuits for 10-year-olds, designed in an ultra-stretch, eco-friendly material, resistant to UV UPF50, repeated washing and tearing.
The comfort of a 10-year-old girl's swimsuit
Another very important argument when choosing a swimsuit for your 10-year-old daughter: comfort.
Your 10 year old daughter should be comfortable in her bathing suit. First of all, the swimsuit should be her size , that is, she shouldn't float in it, but it shouldn't be too tight either.
Then, the comfort also depends on the material and in particular on its sweetness . Avoid poorly designed models with parts that irritate the skin (badly positioned label, elastic cords in contact with the skin, etc.).
Comfort also relies on the drying rate . It's never nice to wear a swimsuit that stays wet long after you get out of the water.
To find out if a swimsuit is the right size and does not get in the way, you have to try it . Please note that by purchasing a swimsuit for a 10-year-old girl on our Miska Paris online store, you have a period of 14 days to return the model if it doesn't suit you. For hygiene measures, our only requirement is that the swimsuit is tried on over underwear without removing the protective strip.
Where to find the best swimsuit for 10 year old girl?
If you don't care about quality, you can buy an entry-level children's swimsuit at any big box store.
Conversely, if you are looking for a good quality and comfortable 10-year-old girl's swimsuit, choose a specialized store like Miska.
If you live in a big city, you should find physical shops. Otherwise, online stores are an excellent alternative, offering a greater choice of models for 10-year-olds, a very wide variety of patterns and colors, all sizes, and often lower prices.
