Mid-Michigan Moms Favorite Neon + Bright Swimsuits & Rash Guards

Drowning is the leading cause of death for children ages 1-4 and the second leading cause of death for children ages 1-14.  We hate to come out of the gate swinging on a post with a statistic like that but it’s important to know how quickly and how easily even the best of swimmers can drown – which is why seconds truly matter when it comes to finding a person in water.

As we approach summer it is no surprise that our social media post alerting parents that the color of their child’s swimsuit could potentially safe their life went viral! This post included water tests from Alive Solutions that showed visibility of clothing colors at certain depths in certain environments such as light bottom pools, dark bottom pools, and lakes… which led to everyone asking where can I get neon and bright suits for my kids?!

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 | 21 | 22 | 23 | 24 | 25

And remember just because a person is dressed in these colors does NOT guarantee you will be able to see them underwater as many factors affect visibility such as pool bottom coloring, water clarity, lighting and weather, surface activity such as agitation and currents, type of water, lake bottom make-up, and of course depth at which the person is under the surface.

For those who boat or prefer to spend their times on lakes, oceans, and ponds almost all colors disappeared which is why it is so important to have your child in the appropriate life jacket to keep them at the surface.

MOST IMPORTANTLY WE WANT TO EMPHASIZE THAT NO LIFE JACKET/PFD, # OF SWIM LESSONS, TYPE OF SWIM LESSON, COLOR OF SWIMSUIT SHOULD EVER REPLACE ADULT SUPERVISION OF CHILDREN IN + AROUND WATER.

Eighty-seven percent of drowning fatalities happen in home pools or hot tubs for children younger than 5. Most take place in pools owned by family or friends. The color of bathing suits + rash guards is simply an added precaution to help make them more visible during supervision or should they sink below the surface to hopefully be able to locate them quickly.
