Baby Swing Top Shirts and Bloomers

Updated on August 16, 2013

Swing top & bloomer sets are a stylish way to keep your baby cool

Baby swing top shirts and bloomers are a great way to beat the heat this summer. Bodysuits, t-shirts, leggings and skirts can be too hot and restrictive as the temperature rises. Swing tops and bloomers offer a breezy retreat for your infant and look very stylish.

Swing tops and bloomers are perfect for everyday play, special occasions and photo opportunities. They also make excellent baby shower gifts.

On this page you'll find a great selection of the cutest baby swing tops and bloomers. Many sizes start at newborn and go up to 2T, some as high as 4T.

Many of the selections come as matched sets but there is also a 'mix and match' section near the end with some very cute options (including bloomers with whimsical flowers and butterflies on the bum!).

Why I Love Swing Tops and Bloomers

When I found out I was pregnant with a little girl, I went absolutely crazy buying dresses. I was due in October so I bought 9 - 12 month sizes for the next summer. Little did I know that most of them wouldn't be worn.

Dresses are perfect for babies that aren't crawling and for walking toddlers. But for crawling babies, not a good idea. The first time I put a dress on my newly mobile baby I noticed it kept getting hooked under her knees and tripping her up. I didn't want her to do a faceplant and get hurt so off came the dress never to be worn again.

Swing tops and bloomers became my summer solution. The top isn't as long as a dress so baby can crawl around freely and still keep cool in the summer heat.

When the temperature drops in the evening, all you have to do is swap the bloomers for leggings and add a sweater.

Pink Swing Tops and Bloomers

Carter's 3 Piece Swing Top, Bloomer and Onesie Set

My daughter is wearing the swing top and bloomers from this set in the photo above. I received this set as a gift and just loved it! The set comes with a white 'tank top' style onesie with green and pink whales, a pink and white striped swing top with two cute little pockets in the front and a matching pair of pink bloomers. This was perfect for hot weather. It was too hot to wear all three pieces at once so I dressed my little girl in either the swing top and bloomers or the tank top onesie with the bloomers.
