Hartstrings Swimwear #Cbias #MyHartstrings

The last couple of weeks have had me thinking of getting all our warm weather clothing out of hibernation. Good for my 8yo son, not so much for my 12yo son who has been growing like a weed this year.

His growing has me searching for pretty much all new clothing for him, and that includes swimwear. As for my Doodle, he always gets hand-me-downs so when I can, I try to buy him new clothes. Doesn’t happen all the time, but he definitely needs a new swimsuit as well.

I visited Kitestrings, Hartstrings.com’s selection of clothes for boys and I started checking out all their cute swimsuits. I was really surprised when I clicked the Swim tab that there were only 4 sets to choose from.HartstringsI had my Doodle look through the suits first to see what he liked. We had to click through all four Rash Guard Swim Sets and get close ups of the bottoms before he chose the Palm Print Rash Guard Swim Set.Kitestrings
Next I had Buddy come over and unfortunately, the only set that was a size 12 was the Tiki Print Rash Guard Set. He needed a new swimsuit, so that’s what he was going to get.Hartstrings
I figured I’d skim through some of the New Arrivals because the poor kid needs shorts that are long enough for him. Lo and behold, guess what I found there?

A whole selection of swim trunks! I was so excited, yet baffled as to why they weren’t listed under the Swim tab. We clicked through each collection and he found the Fish Print Swim Trunk which he liked the most. Thankfully it came in a size 12.

I also found it interesting that when I went under the Bottoms tab, I found the swim trunks there as well. So, it’s a good idea when you’re searching for certain products, not to give up if you don’t find it at first. We found a gold mind searching through Kitestrings.

I loved that since it was my first time visiting Hartstrings.com I was given a 10% off coupon to use on my order! Gotta love a discount.Hartstrings
We were so excited for the swim trunks to show up a few days later! Saturday was the most gorgeous day I can remember since last summer. Doodle had slept in his swim set (yah, I know, my bad) and he was ready to go out and play in the morning.

Buddy through his swim trunks on and guess what? They were too short! I guess he’s moved, with shorts and swim trunks into size 14 now. I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to keep them for Doodle to wear in a year or two or if I’ll exchange them for something else. I’m terrible when it comes to returning items.

I was so excited the swim suits came Friday evening in the mail. They were able to throw them on for pictures Saturday. By Saturday night, the clouds and pouring rain showed up! Thank goodness for the warm sunshine earlier in day!

I have had the same problem on other clothing websites before! I look for something under the category where it should be, and its not there and i look for something else, and end up finding what i was looking for in the first place! Yeesh! Maybe it is a tactic to keep us on the site longer!

Looks like they have some cool prints there!

They look very happy with their new suits, I think my son would like those fish ones.

They're really good looking patterns, but what a bummer they were too short. I'd probably exchange them but if you forget, at least you know that you'll be able to use them for Doodle.
