Picking the Perfect Swimsuit for Little Girl Pageants – Part One

Several little girl pageants have a swimsuit round, while more conservative pageants may have chosen to opt out of it. While teen and woman pageant competitions are more centered around plain bathing suits and body shapes, little girl pageants’ swimwear competitions are more about fun and how frilly the swimsuit is. Little girls are not expected to be stick slim or have hard stomach muscles, so do not pressure your little princess into dieting and working out. Choosing the right swimsuit for your little contestant can be a difficult task.  Everything  But the Princess has a few tips to help your little starlet shine on stage.

One piece or Bikini? Many styles of swimsuits are acceptable and even high scoring in the swimsuit competition. As a mom, if you feel more comfortable keeping your little girl covered up in a modest one piece, you can still find an adorable suit that will get the judges high marks. For example, the Frankie & Daisy “Protect and Serve” Navy & Red Nautical Ruffle Skirted 2pc. is a modest tankini that looks like a one piece. However, it is still adorable in style and offers a lot of personality.

Sometimes, though, a suit looks better in a bikini. Take a look at the Kate Mack Aloha Rose Coral Ruffle 1pc and the Kate Mack Aloha Rose Coral Skirted Ruffle Bikini. Both are adorable suits, but for a swimwear pageant, the model looks better and more fashionable in the two piece. This could be because the bikini has more details or because the one piece is too loose on her. The one piece looks adorable on the model, but should be worn at pool parties and at the beach. The one piece can look show-worthy on other girls though. Sometimes is all depends on your little girl’s body style. If she has a round little tummy, don’t scrutinize it. Little girls are supposed to have little tummies, so instead help her learn how to stand straight and poised or balance out her developing body with ruffles and skirted bottoms that can be worn near the belly button.

Style? There are so many cute bathing suits out there, but for a little girl pageant, swimwear should be more showy. It should be showy in the way that it is full of ruffles, sparkles, or has a pettiskirt. The swimsuits are not necessarily for practicality but for fashion. An example of a showy swimsuit is the Kate Mack Poolside Princess Pink Sequin . This swimsuit is pretty, feminine and attention-grabbing. Think of how cute this suit would be on a toddler or little girl. Older girls need to be careful of this suit, however, if they are competing because it may be too skimpy on them and their developing bodies.

Fit? No matter what your little girl’s size is, the bathing suit should not be worn too tightly. Judges do not like to see any fashion digging into little girl’s skin. Also, if your little princess is uncomfortable in her suit, chances are she will not perform as best as she can. However, be aware of swimsuits that give the impression of a droopy bottom or front. These are not attractive either.

Remember, when competing always wear a swimsuit that has not already been used in swimming. Chlorine and sea salt can alter the style of a bathing suit, even if it was just once. Instead, steam the suit before the performance to ensure a flawless
