The Best Swimsuits For A Water Park

The Best Swimsuits For A Water Park

Summer is here, and what better way to beat the heat and have a splashing good time than visiting a waterpark? Waterparks offer thrilling rides, relaxing pools, and countless opportunities to create unforgettable memories with friends and family. However, dressing appropriately for a waterpark is essential to ensure you have a comfortable and enjoyable experience.

The Best Swimsuits For A Water Park

Waterpark Swimsuits

We’ve put together some practical tips on how to dress for your wet and wild day out with some recommendations for the best swimsuits for a water park. These will help you look stylish while staying comfortable throughout your waterpark adventure. 

Comfort and Functionality

When heading to a waterpark, comfort and functionality should be your top priorities. Here are some key tips to keep in mind when choosing what swimsuit to wear to a waterpark.

Opt for Quick-Drying Fabrics

Water rides, wave pools, and splash zones are all part of the waterpark experience, and you're bound to get wet. Choose swimsuits made from quick-drying fabrics like nylon, polyester, or spandex. These materials will dry faster, ensuring you don't stay soaked for too long. Wearing t-shirts and shorts will give you extra coverage but they will take much longer to dry out and in cooler or breezier conditions you may find yourself a bit chilly at times.

Prioritize Breathability

Waterparks can get hot, and the last thing you want is to feel stifled by your clothing. Select lightweight swimsuits that will keep you cool even in the sunniest weather. Pack other layers to help you with the changing conditions during the day. A kaftan or cover-up is ideal when you want to pop into the café or restaurant on site. A T-shirt or hoodie is useful at the end of the day as it gets cooler. One of our handy towel robes can keep you dry and snuggly in between your time in the water activities. 

Sun Protection

Spending extended periods in the sun can lead to sunburn on your skin. Make sure you apply sun cream regularly as water and rubbing yourself with a towel can reduce its effectiveness. You are best to use a waterproof sun cream if you are heading to a waterpark for the day. You can also wear a swimsuit where the material will protect you from the sun. Our swimsuits offer UV 50+ protection whilst also being sun cream and oil-resistant. Cover up when not in the water and during the hottest part of the day, which is between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. 

Avoid Loose Clothing

Loose-fitting clothing may cause discomfort during water rides, and it could even become a safety hazard. Stick to well-fitted swimsuits with a stretchy fabric that will stay in place and won't interfere with your enjoyment of all the rides and activities on offer. Well-fitted clothing will also offer extra protection to any body parts you don’t want to expose during faster water rides. 

Modesty and Coverage

While waterparks encourage fun and freedom, some visitors may prefer more modest swimwear. Choose your swimsuit wisely. It’s better to be wearing a beautiful, supportive, well-fitted and comfortable swimsuit for your body type than the latest fashion which is held together by a couple of pieces of string. Think about the sort of rides and activities you might go on whilst being at the waterpark. Do you want swimwear with straps that will keep the top half secure in the right places during more vigorous activities? Would a one-piece be better than a bikini top and bottom for rides that involve sitting in a doughnut ring? Will you be going headfirst down a thrilling waterslide where you might want a swimsuit that will stay put? Is there a specific dress code a the waterpark. Is it an outdoor or indoor waterpark.

All of these things are worth thinking about before packing your bag for the day. There’s nothing more embarrassing than losing a piece of swimwear on a water ride.

This Iris Longer Length Swimsuit in Grey Ombre has a low leg cut and a mid-U back. Features that will help with the ‘stay-put-ness’ during a trip down the waterslide.

The design on it is pretty special too. You’ll enjoy being dressed in your swim best when wearing this perfect swimsuit and the most important thing is that you'll be supported.

Pack for Convenience and Style

To complete your waterpark outfit, consider adding a few essential accessories that offer both convenience and style.

Swim Socks

While most waterparks have some form of grippy surfaces, swim socks can provide extra grip and protect your feet from potential hazards. They are a great option for both adults and small children. They are more functional than flip flops or water shoes, but it's handy to have a pair of either. 

Towel Robe

So convenient to have in your bag. Just pop it on in between water slides and you’ve got yourself a warm and snuggly towel hoodie that will dry you with minimal effort. It’s also really handy if you want to change in a more public area without exposing anything. Don't forget to also pack dry clothes and beach towels.

Sun Hat

Shield yourself from the sun with a wide-brimmed sun hat. It not only adds a fashionable touch but also provides extra protection for your face and neck.


Invest in a pair of UV-protective sunglasses to shield your eyes from the sun's harmful rays throughout the entire day. Choose a style that stays secure during water activities.

Waterproof Phone Pouch

If the waterpark you are heading to allows photos, you can capture all the fun moments without worrying about damaging your phone. A waterproof phone pouch allows you to keep your phone with you and take photos during water rides.

With these tips on how to dress for a waterpark and the best swimsuit recommendations, you're well-prepared for a day of excitement, relaxation, and unforgettable memories.
