Just as we refresh back-to-school wardrobes for fall, spring means making sure swimwear is at the ready for a season of splashing in the sun. Under Armour is a length ahead with styles that are all about mobility and protection (all suits have UPF sun protection built right in). Now that your school-aged and preteen swimmers are water safe and making waves, dive into our list of swimsuits to shop now!
Stand Tough: UA Big Logo Surf Shirt
You won’t have to worry about only getting one season of wear out of this rash surf shirt. The UPF 40+ rating (recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation), salt-resistant, quick-drying materials and stretch factor will make this his wave-catching go-to for summers to come.
No Slowing Down: UA Magnesium Volley
Tough enough to stand up to the elements, but plenty comfortable with an elastic waistband, this suit will dry fast so he can get on his way.
Game On: UA Fader Volley
Thanks to Under Armour’s water-resistant technology, this suit dries quickly so he can transition from the pool to a lunch break, or from the waves to beach volleyball in no time. These trunks also stand up to chlorine or salt, meaning colors won’t fade. Available in small, medium, large, or extra large sizes.
All In One: H2O Reveal SS Rashguard
He can go from the waves to the beach and back again thanks to Under Armour benefits like HeatGear fabric that will keep you cool, quick drying technology and built-in UPF 50+ sun protection. There’s also a bonus reveal—with a pattern emerging once it gets wet. It adds up to all kinds of fun in the sun.
Pack and Play: Grit Half Back Elastic Boardshort
Comfortable and secure, these boardshorts are made to let him move, whether he’s diving for that volleyball or waxing up his surfboard. There are even secure back pockets to make his day at the beach hands-free (he’ll just have to remember to remove anything that isn’t waterproof before diving in!)
Ebb and Flow: UA Grazer Flutter Two-Piece Bikini
Flexibility and comfort, protection and coverage… too much to ask in one suit? Not at all. This two-piece is made to stretch four ways, is fully lined and like all swimwear from Under Armour, has UPF built in (in this case, 30+). A shelf bra is also built-in for sizes 12-16.
Swimmin’ Style: UA Best Life One-Piece
There’s no reason she shouldn’t also express her style in the pool, and we seriously heart the textile pattern on this one piece! Like all Under Armour styles, lightweight materials make flip turns all the easier. Available in a range of both toddler and preschool sizes, right on up to size 16.
Inside and Out: UA Reversible Mid-Kini
Two suits in one! Whether you want to go with a solid or a pattern, the choice is hers with this two-piece. And, Under Armour benefits like mobility and sun protection work both ways, too!
Junior Guards: UA Helios Rashguard Set
This rash guard set is perfect for riding waves, from boogie boarding to stand-up paddle boarding. And the extra shoulder protection is ideal for any day at the beach.
Racing Stripes: UA Racer One-Piece
This is one suit that won’t lose its shape, no matter how many laps she sprints for swim team or goals she scores for water polo. Fully lined with stylish racing straps, she’ll love the fit and the function.
