The Best 8 Yoga Leggings for Women
While brands have certainly become more aware of the interest girls have in wearing more diverse and what would once be considered “boyish” clothing, this line of thinking doesn’t seem to extend to the bathing suit industry, which remains largely the same and distinctly segmented between girls and boys.
For girls who are looking for less flowers, stripes, or pastels and more sharks, dinosaurs, or cars, on their swimwear, they don’t have many options (unless they head over to the boys section, that is). Similarly, it’s rare to find many long sleeve swim shirts, full coverage swimwear or swim trunks in the girls and women’s section of traditional retailers.
Whether she’s interested in something more full coverage, something looser and easier to play in, or something that just has a really cool design like you see in the boys section, we have great options for it all! We’ve searched far and wide to find 10 of the best swimwear options for nongirly girls, girls looking for swimwear that’s empowering, and girls who want swimwear made with their best interests in mind.
We’ve made sure to include some great options, but if you haven’t found what you’re looking for in the list below, make sure to check out our catalogue of nongirly bathing suits here.
