Baby-Kini {Review}

Wait, why are we advertising swimwear in November?!  Don’t tell me not one of you is going on a cruise or atleast flying to someplace warm during the holiday break!  I’m jealous of all of you!!  But really, have a blast.  And pack your cutest swimsuits.  Does your baby girl have one?  You’re probably not packing yet, but have you thought about swimwear for her?  Think about all the pictures you’ll be taking!  Good luck finding a toddler size swimsuit in any local store this month, let alone a cute one.  You’re gonna have to start looking online, and might I save you some time and trouble and direct you straight to Babi-Kini!?

Babi-Kini is a custom couture children’s swim wear boutique with some of the most darling suits I’ve ever seen!  I love all of these!!  I really love that they aren’t the typical baby pink with ruffles or something smothered in Disney princesses.  These have so much personality in them!

I was sent the Charm School One-Piece to review, and I can’t get over the cuteness!  Since its a bit nippy over here in Boston, and there ain’t no way we’re having a play date at the beach anytime soon, we made a little pretend beach at home 🙂

IMG_8486All of the Baby-kini products contain a blend of top quality swimwear fabrics and trims, and are manufactured in San Diego, California.  Given the 30+ hours I spent on sewing up swimsuits myself this last summer, I can attest to the quality of this suit.  Strong knits, excellent stitching, no imperfections.

IMG_8488Oh this tie in the back!  Darling, and just the perfect way to make this suit adjustable for growing bodies.  By the way, sizes range from XS (birth-6 mon) to XL (4-6yrs).  These little rosettes on the front?  Stop it.

So did I mention that I’ve been sewing myself a swimsuit for the past few nights?  I knew it would be a good challenge, and I wanted to gain some good experience sewing with knits and elastics.  I bought a yard and a half in three different colors so that hopefully by the 3rd attempt, I would have something to wear!  After all this constructing, sewing, ripping, cutting, and trying again and again to get it right, I will SOOOOO appreciate a good swimsuit!  I feel like I could take any swimsuit off the rack and tell you if it was constructed well.  Through all of this, I just might have unintentionally made myself the perfect candidate to review swimsuits, ha ha!  Thank you, Beach Rays, for giving me the opportunity to do just that!

Beach Rays carries some super attractive and extremely stylish swimsuits for men and women, and they’ve just come out with their new 2013 line of children’s swimsuits!  OH SO ADORABLE!

A new year means bigger kids, and “Rocket” was definitely in need of a good swimsuit.  Golly, he’s been growing like a weed!  Here are some of the boys’ swimsuits we had our eye on:

Together, we picked out the Aadan swimsuit, by Vroom Vroom, and he looks like a rockstar!

There were no corners cut on its construction.  There is a velcro fly, thick and high quality laces for a snug fit, and even a functional pocket with velcro closure on the back.  Perfect length, and true to size.

Love it.  The pattern is so modern and fun, and not too “little boy” for me.  The material doesn’t wrinkle, and I’m confident that the colors will not fade.  It is made out of 100% poly micro fiber for quick-drying.

And then as soon as I laid eyes on the Maya swimsuit, by RayRay, and even though I don’t actually have a girl, I knew I simply had to have it!  Yup, I’m a hoarder.  I’m banking on atleast one of the next 3+ pregnancies being girl, and when she comes, she’ll be one best-dressed baby!   And oh, what a diva.

 Everything about this is CUTE CUTE CUTE!  Oh, the ruffles!  Oh, that zebra print!  Oh, the hot pink flower details!  But really, its a very well-made suit besides all the frills.  Perfect stitching and attention to details, highest quality knit, and vibrant colors.  80% nylon and 20% spandex makes this very soft, stretchy, and comfortable.  $46 seems totally fair for this darling.

 Take a few minutes and get a little nostalgic about beach days while you peruse the Beach Rays shop in all its glory.
