This long sleeve thermal suit is a helpful way to be full covered for your next water aerobics class. With SPF protection, you can head out to the pool so you can be protected from the sun and know that you will have the best suit around.
The swim suits definitely run on the small side. My son normally wears a 3T/4T, but the 6T suit fits better than the 4T. The picture of the suit has short sleeves, but the title and product received has long sleeves. The picture should definitely match the actual product because I had read the comments about the long sleeve suits and purposely (I thought) ordered the short sleeve suit. The suit definitely keeps my toddler warmer in an indoor pool, but the it's a bit of a challenge with the long sleeves being on the tight side. I definitely would have given a higher rating if the product was short sleeved like the picture.
I thought that this was all neoprene. I was wrong! It does have it in all the most needed places, BUT it's made for a shorter, much fatter kid than mine. So, really it acts as a thick bathing suit because the neoprene parts pooch out. Regardless of all of that, my son still wears it to the beach and enjoys it!
My daughters (ages 3 and 5) swim year long in outdoor and indoor pools. We have several of the short sleeve version which have worked well (sized up--my 3 yo wears a 4, my then 4 yo wore a size 6--for her, the suit just barely fits now, but size 8 is too long in the body at age 5 1/2). Also, the colored arms/legs fabric will stretch with time (even with machine washing/air drying). Since the younger one still complained of cold arms/legs outdoors, I thought I'd try this long sleeved version. BAD IDEA. The fit is even smaller than the short sleeve version (my 3 yo barely fits in a 4; 6 is okay on her; my 5 1/2 yo could not get into the size 6). But the bigger problem are the sleeves--they are too long and taper too much at the end. I tried to roll them up, but it was so tight that their hands were turning purple/blue by the end of the lesson. I was able to get the 3 yo to wear the size 6 with the arms pushed up rather than rolled up--still tight around the wrist, but not cutting off circulation. If your child has long/thin arms then this may work well for you. If not, then I would stick with the short sleeve version or consider shortening the sleeves yourself. Thankfully customer service at SwimOutlet is amazing.3 Stars because these do keep them warmer vs traditional suits/rash guards. I've seen other kids get out early due to being cold, but my girls seem fine. And the quality is good for the price--our short sleeve version has survived over a year of use so far (swimming 1-4x/week year long). I just wished they would fix the arms--shorter and looser fit and I'd buy them again.
