HappyGreenBee Sportsuit Review *GIVEAWAY*

11:43 AM Posted by Erin


When it comes to swimwear, I want my daughter to be comfortable. I hate swimsuits that ride up, fall down, or hit in spots that are unbecoming. My husband on the other hand is obsessed with modesty. Now I love a good bikini and think they look adorable on little girls but he believes our daughter should be covered at all times. We were both thrilled when we received the adorable cotton sportsuit in watermelon/sky by HappyGreenBee, our favorite organic designer of children's clothes. It has the perfect mix of child style, comfort, and best of all eco friendly to keep all of us happy. Now why is eco friendly important to us: Organic cotton is especially great for infants and children. Whereas pesticide and chemically-treated clothing traps heat and prevents skin from absorbing adequate moisture—often causing rashes and eczema on sensitive skin—organic cotton is natural and breathable. Children with allergies particularly benefit, as organic cotton does not have the residual toxic residues that linger on conventional cotton. Even those without sensitive skin find organic cotton more comfortable and kid-friendly. The longer fibers stretch as children grow.


The first thing I fell in love with was the softness and natural stretch of the sportsuit and of course the vibrancy of the trademark HappyGreenBee stripes. Bonus that it matches the watermelon/sky tights that we reviewed this past spring. My daughter did ballet over the summer and I kept staring at this sportsuit in her drawer. It's made of 100% organic cotton and doesn't scream swimsuit, although it looked great at the water park. I repeatedly asked myself, am I brave enough to put my daughter in something so bold, so look-at-me in a sea of pastel ballerinas? Finally, one Saturday I bit the bullet and we arrived to class wearing our full HappyGreenBee getup. She definitely got kudos from the parents and even the teacher loved her bright little look and the suit performed perfectly for dance class as well as the pool.

HappyGreenBee makes something for every little bee, from reversible hoodies to A-line sundresses to sweet cloth dolls in maching fabrics to coordinate with. Their best deals can be found in their Factory Store where selection changes frequently and all orders over $15 are shipped absolutely free.
