A&D Finds: Budget-Friendly Swimwear For The Whole Family

Summer is here and I'm sure the kids are super excited to hit the beach or the pool and swim the summer away! Last week, we had my pre-birthday getaway at the beach. It was my kids' first time at the beach so imagine how excited I am!
Part of that excitement was shopping for swimwear for the kids but what I didn't expect was how hard it was to find rashguards and boardshorts for kids and at a budget friendly prices! Eeeep! I am practical with things that will only be used for a short time or a season only especially when kids outgrow clothes so fast. That and/or I am a kuripot smart shopper! Heehee! One money saving tip I can give is always have a budget and stick to it!
I started looking for rashguard two weeks before our trip, this was mid-February and I tell you it was not easy! I checked Speedo and their SALE rack, nothing fits R plus it was over my budget so I checked Cotton On Kids which was suggested to me by some mommy friends.
Cotton On Kids loot for my sister. Rashguards are at Php799 thereabouts, boardshorts are at Php799 as well I think. Some are on SALE so check the sale rack first.

I bought these for my sister. They have a pool in their house and they're going to Boracay this summer, she'll get to maximize them. If you have the budget for these Cotton On Kids swimwear, then buy na! :)
More choices! Everything is so cute! Sadly, there's none for girls. I hope they'll have it in store soon!

Another friend mentioned Landmark, I never really shop at Landmark because I don't frequent Trinoma and when I go to Makati, I always go to SM naman. But over the course of two weeks of looking for swimwears, I was able to go to both Trinoma and Makati branches! O diba?!
Landmark Makati Great selection!
I was able to buy R's rashguards, BOS' boardshorts. I also bought my yaya two boardshorts at the "Bazaar" section at around Php150-Php180 each!!!
Got this for R at Landmark Trinoma. Also available in Makati. It's only Php180!!!
Boardshorts for the BOS! Left one is Php269.75 while the right one is Php209.75.

If your daughter or son likes Disney characters, it's what SM and Robinsons had last February. Sandbox had trunks and boardshorts, swimwear as well but no size for R.  But I was able to score super duper cute floral boardshorts for both Y and R. These are for girls but I bought it for R anyway.
My bebepies in their matching outfits! Sandbox Floral Boardshorts are Php169.75 each!

But the gold mine is in 168 Mall! I never thought I would be able to buy decent swimwear in Divisoria but I hit the jackpot! I spotted this store a few months back but never went in because I didn't need swimwear back then. I went back and scored rashguards for both Y and R. They also have bikinis and rashguards for ladies but it's free size only - for sexy ladies only!
Rashguards at Php200 each!
They got Carter's, Cotton On overruns, just to name a few. Rashguards are at Php200. There are also rashguard/bottoms sets for Php350. The downside is they only have what they have. Most are for toddlers, not much for Y. But I was happy with what I got! The store is in 168 Mall, Pasilio 2F but I forgot the stall number. Medyo nasa likod na siya, you won't miss it!
Enjoying the sand!

As for me, I had no plans of buying new boardshorts or swimsuit because I have two but when I tried on the older one, hindi na kasya! So I was happy when I was able to buy a swimsuit and boardshorts on sale at Cotton On! Sorry, no photo of me wearing them kasi baka mag crash ang mga gadgets niyo. Heehee!
Swimsuit and boardshorts at Php400 each.

I'm super happy with my purchases! There were times when I wanted to buy whatever was available kahit mahal because I really had a hard time looking but sabi nga patience is a virtue! I'm really glad I stuck to my budget. More stories about our beach trip in the next few days!
