During the summer we spend a ton of time in the water. Whether it’s at the lake, a spray fountain or even our front yard sprinkler, we’re near water, because my daughter is like a little fish! With all this water play, comes the need for a swimsuit (or two or three!) and here are a few of my favorite summer swimsuits for toddler girls…
7 Summer Swimsuits For Toddler Girls 1 of 8
I'm a sucker for a cute swimsuit and here are a few of my faves!
Blue Gingham Swimsuit 2 of 8
I wanted this swimsuit for Fern so badly, but alas it didn't fit quite right, since my girl has a bit of a pot belly. It would be so cute though and I really hope someone of you buy this so I can live vicariously through you.
Purchase this swimsuit for $19.99 from Gap
Seashore Print Swimsuit 3 of 8
My friend's daughters have Mini Boden swimsuits and they are the cutest thing on the planet. I love the lovely print on this one. Very reminiscent of Coney Island during the mid-century era (OK, I've never actually been to Coney Island, but that's what this made me think of, so just go with it!).
Purchase this swimsuit for $28.00 from Nordstrom
Graphic Heart Swimsuit 4 of 8
I have been waiting for the day when Fern would be big enough to fit into the clothes from Crewcuts and that day has finally arrived! This swimsuit is at the very tippy top of my wish list for her!
Purchase this swimsuit for $58.00 from Crewcuts (J.Crew)
One-Shoulder Ruffle Minnie Mouse Swimsuit 5 of 8
I had a Minnie Mouse swimsuit when I was a kid, so when I saw this at Old Navy I couldn't resist getting it for Fern. She has multiple swimsuits, but we spend a lot of our summer days at the lake, so it's not completely frivolous.
Purchase this swimsuit for $13.95 from Old Navy
Vintage Minnie Striped Swimsuit 6 of 8
This swimsuit is in the same vein as the Old Navy swimsuit I got for Fern at Old Navy, but it's a little more streamlined and I LOVE the vintage Minnie Mouse. Do you think a kid needs two Minnie Mouse swimsuits? I'm trying to convince myself that the answer is yes.
Purchase this swimsuit for $25.90 from Zara
Classic Americana Swimsuit 7 of 8
So simple and chic! Stripes are a perennial classic and I love the sporty cut of this suit.

Black and White Striped Swimsuit 8 of 8
Fern has this swimsuit and I love it, but I almost didn't buy it. The reason? That massive hot pink flower in the middle. But, I saw the potential and with the help of a friend, we did a little swimsuit surgery and voila! Simple black and white stripes. (*Note: If you purchase this swimsuit and decide to attempt a little swimsuit surgery yourself, please know that it is tricky and definitely requires two sets of hands and some really good scissors. Then cross your fingers that you don't end up with any holes!)
Purchase this swimsuit for $11.49 from Old Navy
