Conversation, ideas and events for parents in Santa Rosa and Sonoma County

i would love to find some great places to shop for my tween daughter who is 12. She wants something that is like a teen bathing suit, but i dont want a tiny bikini with no coverage. We need to find a place that can meet both of those standards. PLEASE help us! shopping with her is SOOO hard, and i would love to make her happy, without having her butt hanging out!! Thank you so much. If you need the info for sizing she is a size 12 in kids, and wants a string bikini that is girly.

I've been struggling with the preteen bathing suit options as well. It seems like there's a jump between young girl swimsuits and revealing teen styles - nothing for the in-betweener ages. My daughter is very modest about her body, and rather than wear something too revealing she has given up and gone the swim trunks and t-shirt route. But that's hardly cute for a preteen girl. I love, love, LOVE the styles that Tania suggested over at Justice, and will definitely see if my daughter agrees. Thanks gals for your suggestions!

Justice at the Santa Rosa Plaza (top floor) has tween styles. You can also check them out online here to see what they are like.

I bought my 12 year old 2 suits at Target in Santa Rosa. they have quite a few that are the longer tops with bikini bottoms. So she gets her two piece suit, and I get the coverage that I like. One of her friends got a really cute one at JC Penny. I've also seen some good ones at Kohls. GOOD LUCK!
