Bright colors. Cute patterns. And pool-party-ready accessories. All of this adorable swimwear for tweens has us so excited for all kinds of summer fun! We know that tween girls can be hard to shop for — they’ve outgrown little girl sizes but aren’t quite ready for teen styles. To make your life easier, we’re sharing the best swimsuit brands for tween girls. Plus, cover-ups and poolside accessories that are just all kinds of fun. Shop our favorites below!
Tip: When shopping for girls in the 9-12 age range who are in the early stages of puberty, especially ones who are are self-conscious about their developing bodies, I recommend looking for suits with thicker fabric or a ruffle or pattern around the bust area. You will see this with many of the suits below!
