Girls Bathing Suit Poll

Silver623 posted:
When showing my coworker a pic of my kids in the pool he commented that his wife does not allow their 1.5 year old to wear bikinis and that she plans to keep her in a 1 piece as long as possible. I think my little girl looks adorable in her stylish 2 piece. What do you all think?

Take the Poll

What kind of bathing suit will you buy for your little girl this year?
  • 1 piece because a 2 piece is inappropriate
  • 1 piece because it's easier
  • 2 piece because they are so cute
  • shorts and a t-shirt
  • birthday suit ;)

That's silly. Actually, I find a 2 piece to be easier...sometimes I just put on her top, and don't even bother with the bottom since she has her swim diaper on.

My answer really is both. I dont think its inappropriate at all, but to each his own. I go with whatever is cute & easier at the time. I have a mix of both types with the matching coverups I do find 1 pieces easier because they stay put.

I didn't know how to vote b/c my DD wears a two piece but one is the long sleeve shirt with a binkini bottom and the other is a tang top type top with binkini bottoms. So she's not wearing anything that shows belly b/c I don't think those are appropriate for young children. I personally don't wear binkinis but I do wear a similiar two piece that DD has. However, if my co-worker showed me a picture of their child in a binkini I wouldn't comment on it.

2 piece is WAY easier for changing a squirmy 1 year old's diaper in my opinion!!

I don't have a DD, but just wanted to say that my Mom would not let me wear a two piece because she was raised very conservative Catholic and thought it was better to be more modest. Maybe it depends on your personal views and beliefs.

I was rethinking...I actually don't have LO in little itty bitty bikinis. Just 2 pieces --looks the same as a 1 piece but is broken down into 2 (a top that goes down to where the bottom starts).

My DD has a two piece. It's more of a Tankini, but still a two piece. It's much easier to change her that way and also she is so long in her torso that one pieces don't fit her well. I think a two piece is perfectly fine for a LO!

We use all of the above

I personally think the one piece is cuter, but the two piece is way more convenient!

I can definitely understand that way of thinking though... I know I've looked at some little girl and thought, no way would I let her wear that. Sometimes they try to make things look too grown up.

When i thought of a 2 piece I thought tankini style too. I dont wear bikini's either - I dont want to scare anyone off the beach - LOL!! Anyway I agree some baby bikini's are inappropriate - expecially the string ones. I dont want my baby getting sunburn so I try to cover her more then expose her delicate skin.

I can see both sides to it, some two piece styles are really more appropriate for adults. If my DD could wear the bottoms to a two piece, I'd be happy with that, but they slide right off her skinny little tush (even with swim diaper).


I think the funniest suit I have seen was a pink ruffly Juicy Couture bikini on this adorably pudgy little girl. Nothing says I'm one-year old quite like Juicy written on your butt. I actually googled it just to see what it cost. A lot is the answer.

I think two pieces are absolutely inappropriate for little girls..
Me and my mom came up with a word..its called "pedostyle"..
Yeah, i'm tlaking the bikinis, the short skirts and tiny halters people put on their daughters. I dont find them cute in any way!.
I know that was blunt, but I have to put my foot down on that one.

I LOVE two pieces on little girls. They look so cute plus i bet they are a whole lot easier.

mamatobe08 responded:
Ok, I think having "juicy" on the butt is a little over the top, but if it's a normal, toddler looking suit, I would think 2 piece would be sooo much easier!

And how rude of your coworker to just say that while looking at your pictures.

1stbaby2008 replied to AltMomma's response:
I kind of agree with AltMomma. Last year DD had a once piece, and this year I got her a 2 peice but it it is takini and a skort so it covers everything. I can't say that I would not let DD wear a 2 peice in my back yard where we have privacy fence and no one could see her, but I would not put a 2 piece on in public. But that is just my opinion.
