When you can’t find a tasteful swim suit for you or your daughter, Hydrochic might be an answer

We have now reached the stage in our lives when both myself and my 12-year-old daughter hate trying on swimsuits. I’ve been there a long, long time, even before the two kids. Ava has most recently joined the ranks when she had to start shopping the women’s department instead of the girl’s department this year. We’ve had trouble finding suits that fit all areas correctly and that wouldn’t leave us looking like hoochie mamas. Many swimsuits also aren’t friendly to fairer-skinned women, like myself, who burn easily despite the layers of sunscreen applied religiously.

Hydrochic separates give you as much coverage as you want.

You don't have to be stuck with a skirt or skort. You can choose Hydrochic's pants, too.

We were really excited this week when Miss Teen USA announced that it would no longer have the swimsuit category. Instead contestants would wear activewear.

I was also excited when I got an email in my inbox about Hydrochic. The swimsuit company offers suits designed to give you more coverage. It offers separates in anything from razorback sports bras to long-sleeve tops and swim skorts to pants bottoms. Hydrochic has items for girls ages 5-12, misses and plus sizes up to 4X. It also has fabric that has SPF 50 sun protection and chlorine resistance.

Prices range from $78 for a girls set to $29.50 to $95 for adult separates. Find Hydrochic online at www.hydrochic.com.

We’d love to see more designers like Hydrochic in stores alongside the string bikinis rather than just online. If Miss Teen USA can make the change, can’t retailers, too?

And if you’ve had luck finding more coverage swimsuits for yourself or your daughter, tell us where you found them.
