Imse Vimse Swim Diaper Review and GIVEAWAY!!!

When it comes to reusable swim diapers, I tend to hear the same brands over and over. Tried and true and fan favorites. One brand that I don't really hear much about is Imse Vimse. In fact, I think the only reason I've even heard about it is because TGN carries it. They've got good taste at TGN. They don't just put any old diaper on their shelves! If they carry it, it's got to be pretty great. So that got me curious. I decided to give the Imse Vimse Swim Diaper a go, and see what makes this swimmer special...
When it came in the mail, I was immediately impressed by the cute print and simple design. It's soft and stretchy. The outer fabric is 80% polyamide and 20% elastane, and the inner fabric is 100% polyurethane laminated polyeter (PUL), with the plastic-like waterproof coating sandwiched between the soft inner and outer fabrics. Since the purpose of all swim diapers is only to contain solids, there is no absorbent material. It's a good thing because if swim diapers were absorbent, they would absorb the water your baby is swimming in, weighing them down. It can easily be pulled on, which is great for my little guy who is always on the go! There is also two snaps on one side of the diaper so you can also put on and take off the diaper lying down also. This is also good for if your little soils the diaper.
The design of the Imse Vimse Swimmer simple, but it is so effective. I realized this once I got my little guy in the water. Before trying the Imse Vimse, I had two favorite swim diapers. I love both of them for different reasons, but have a small issue with each... One is waterproof and has a great fit, but tends to hold water. The other isn't waterproof, so that solves the holding water issue (but still does a great job at holding in solids!), but is a little baggy in the bottom. The Imse Vimse Swim Diaper solved both of these issue for us! It is nice and snug and holds very little water. Since it comes in five different sizes, it allows you to find the perfect fit for your little one.
|Small||1–3 months||11–17 lbs. / 5–8 kg|
|Medium||3–6 months||15–22 lbs. / 7–10 kg|
|Large||6–15 months||20–26 lbs. / 9–12 kg|
|Extra Large||15–24 months||24–30.5 lbs. / 11–14 kg|
|Super Large||24-36 months||28-36 lbs. / 13–16 kg|
My little guy is 23 month and 25 lbs so we went with Extra Large. I think the Large would've fit him pretty good too! Since he is at the low end of the weight range for his size, if we need it, I think it will still fit him great next year. The elastics are nice and snug, helping to contain any potential messes, but still comfy and left no red marks.
Because of the cut and how lightweight and trim this swimmer is, it would work great underneath a swim suit or trunks. But with a swimmer this cute, why would you want to cover it up? :) I love how it matches my little guy's life jacket!
I also love that it dries quickly! My little guy likes to go in and out of the water, so it's nice that if I let him run around in it, it doesn't stay cold and wet for long!
