My 2.5 year old daughter was very excited to wear her new swim pants with “knickers” to swimming lessons. She said, “ooh I like them mommy, they are very comfortable”. The ability to tighten around the waist and legs is fantastic as she is tiny, only 10kg and all bathers just fall off her. In the water she was very happy in them, the only thing was that her legs kept floating to the top and she had to work very hard to keep running her legs so that they stayed down. They were very easy to wash and they dried very quickly too. She didn’t have any accidents (that we know of) but from the design you can certainly have confidence that if any accident did occur it would be contained.
