The Sporti Thermal Suit is the perfect suit for swimming in colder water, specifically made to add warmth in lower temperatures and has UV protection for your little one.
We like this wet suite, thick material. I know it''s small for the size, I ordered 9/10 for my 7.5 years old (average size boy), it fits perfectly. I ordered 6X for my 4.5 years old (taller for his age), it''s too SMALL. I have to return and reorder one more size up.
I wish that sizes for skinny kids existed. My son needs the length, but everything is too wide for him.
My kid was refusing to get into the pool because it was too cold. She loves swimming but the pool was so cold she was freezing after ten minutes. Now she is so comfortable that the is refusing to get out of the pool!
This suit is great for my daughters swimming lessons in a 53 degree pool!!!! She's warm till the end now which makes life easier for us :-) This does run small she's a size 7 normally and is in the 9/10 of this product! Keep that in mind when purchasing for your child!!!!
The product seems to be exactly what I want. However, I can''t seem to get the right size. This is the second one I''ve bought now and even though it is size 9/10, it is too small for my just-turned-7 year old, who normally wears a 8. So I don''t think the sizes are consistent.
I bought this wetsuit when my grand daughter wore a size 8. Now she is a size 12 however she is tall and lanky so she still fits into it! This is her second season. Her team swims year round in coastal Ga. in an outdoor sort of heated pool, so she wears this from Nov. until whenever the weather decide to warm up. Of course at meets she can''t but it also helps give her a little "drag" at practice!
This is being sent to Canada for a 3-year-old, so I won''t know how it fits until after Christmas. I thought I was ordering just a sun suit, but it turns out to be kind of a wetsuit with sturdy material over the body...lots of protection. This will get much use, I''m sure. The only thing I''d rather see is a longer zipper; otherwise it''s perfect.
My 3 year old has a problem regulating his temperature and would always get too cold while swimming, so I figured this suit would help him enjoy the water and stay warm. It really did help him stay warm in the pool and he enjoyed being able to play longer and feel comfortable. I bought a size 4 hoping he could grow into it since he is very small for his age. The 4 fits but wish it was a little bit bigger so we could use for a few more years.
My 3 1/2 yr old has swimming at summer camp, and started complaining about being cold. Our city has had a cool Summer, so it''s really not hot enough for swimming yet. So bought a suit for her and her little sister. I bought a 6x small for my 3 1/2 year old daughter who is tall for her age, and a 3t for my 2 1/2 year old daughter who is average height. I saw the reviews about sizing up and took the advice, and it was great advice. The 3t for the 2 1/2 yr old fit perfectly. The 6x small is a little loose on my oldest, but not enough to affect performance. Plus, she grows like a weed so want to be able to use it next season.Both girls have used the suits and love them. Thick enough to keep them warm, and flexible enough for them to swim and play. And now we''re not hesitant to take them to the pool on a day that''s a little cool for swimming..
I was looking for a reasonably priced suit to keep my kids warm during swim lessons, and this was a great deal. I found other reviews about sizing very helpful, so here are some specific measurements that may help others. My son just turned 3 this week. He is 38" tall and weighs 32lbs. I bought him the 4T and am glad I did. There''s a little room to grow, and he will probably be able to squeeze into it next spring/summer too. However, I think the 3T would''ve been on the small side for him. My daughter is 19 months. She is 32" tall and weighs 23 lbs. I bought her the 2T. It fits perfectly for length, but is a little wide (she''s skinny). I don''t think it will fit again next year because of the length, but am glad I didn''t buy 3T as it would''ve been very wide. If you can choose the right size, this is a great little wetsuit.
