A big thank you to Rachel for doing all the hard work...now it's time to find some swimsuit deals!
Summer is half over. (Gulp) But now is the time to stock up on swimwear for your children for next summer! I know some of you are a little apprehensive about purchasing clothing for the future when you have no idea how much your child will grow over the next twelve months, but I have done this for years and more often than not, the clothes fit.
I usually buy one size up, and if it looks tiny, I will go two sizes up. Better to have something too big and put it back in the closet for another season, than too small and they never get to wear it. If you do end up ordering things that are too small by the time the next season rolls around, you can always consign! A bathing suit with tags still on it will sell!
Here are a few of my favorite children's clothing websites that currently have their swimwear on sale. Simply visit the site and click on the children's section and clearance/sale section! *Many of these have adult swimwear on sale, too!
