Cool Moms Pick Girls4Sport

Summer isn’t quite here, but school is getting out and moms are preparing in a big way. Of course kids spend a lot of time at the beach and Girls4Sport wants to help moms (and kids too!) by making sun protection easy.

That’s why we were so excited to see our girls’ rashguards and board shorts featured over at Cool Mom Picks.

“These suits are made for activity, not posing. Blocking 98% of UV rays and with a SPF of 50+, the USA-made designs will get you through the summer hopefully without the need for aloe gel. I’m definitely impressed.”

Thanks to Stephanie and Cool Mom Picks for the great review! If you get a chance, check out the site. The Father’s Day Picks are great reading with the holiday coming next week.


A love letter for Girls4Sport’s pre-teen swimwear

13-year-old Rhianna from Florida wrote a love letter to Girls4Sport for its line of modest swimwear in junior sizes for pre-teen girls.

I love my bathing suits from Girls4Sport. They are cute and comfortable for playing volleyball, and I don’t have to worry about my suit moving in any awkward direction.  I’m only 13, but the adult sizes fit me. It’s nice to have some cooler, funkier-looking, long-sleeved bathing suits so I can look great, but not have to worry about getting sunburned while I hang out on the beach with my friends, swim in the pool, and go to water park.

My sisters, who are 11, are so excited to be big enough to fit into the shirts this year.  They have to wait another year or so to fit into the bottoms, though… it’s great being the oldest!

Thanks to Girls4Sport for having cool, yet modest, pre-teen swim wear that fits girls like me!

Girls4Sport Designs Trendy Swimwear for Pre-Teens with Sun Protection and Coverage Parents Can Approve

With summer break just around the corner, parents of pre-teen girls will soon be tackling the challenge of finding age-appropriate swimsuits for their daughters.  Girls often complain that children’s swimsuits aren’t trendy enough, while their parents cringe at the skimpy adult-sized alternatives.

“It is hard to find something that is age appropriate, modest, and her style all rolled into one,” said one mother of a pre-teen daughter who recently placed an order with Girls4Sport.

Girls4Sport tries to bridge the gap with surf-inspired swimwear in fashionable prints that pre-teen kids love, and cute but modest coverage options that parents can love as well.

As the mother of a daughter, Girls4Sport President Kim Ruby understands parents’ concerns as well as the fashion sense of pre-teen girls.  “We design swimsuits to appeal to a girl’s sense of style, but with coverage options to give her confidence in the water and UV protective fabrics to protect her skin from the sun.  Plus, our small and extra-small sizes provide great fits for girls riding the line between children’s and adult sizing.”

For 12-year-old Girls4Sport model Simone, Girls4Sport swimsuits are the perfect fit.  “I love the designs; they are really cool. They’re also really comfortable to run and swim in,” said Simone.

The Girls4Sport line features rash guards with feminine cuts as well as cute tankini tops in halter, tank, and sleeveless styles.  The tops are all designed with built-in shelf bras, extra length in the torso to keep from riding up, and are made from a comfortable nylon/spandex fabric blend with a sun-protection factor of UPF 50+.  Girls4Sport’s mix and match swim bottoms range from stay-put bikini bottoms and full coverage boy briefs to beach skirts and board shorts in a variety of lengths.

The swimwear prints for 2012 include the colorful, star-studded Pop Star with black accents, a red and black heart-shaped tattoo-inspired print called Forever,  a retro surf print called Pacific, and sophisticated swirls of pink for a print called Zen Pink.
