Life jackets can be very uncomfortable, but they’re essential for water safety, especially with children. So what’s the solution here? Floaty Pants! Instead of wearing a flotation device around your chest and stomach, you just slip these on like a bathing suit.
“Floaty Pants are stuffed with super-floaty and moisture resistant EPE foam to let you float higher in the water,” the description says.
We’re very aware that these look a bit silly. It’s kind of like a jumbo diaper. But we’re always down for a laugh — and they keep you safely above water, so they get a thumbs-up in our book.
It comes in a range of colors and patterns, including blue, camouflage, American flag, Canadian flag, polka-dot bikini, swim trunks with abs, pink thong bikini, and American flag speedo with abs.
Out of 100 reviews, Floaty Pants has an average of 4.1 out of 5 stars. “This is one of the best flotation items I’ve ever purchased,” one buyer wrote. “You can float upright, on your back, or on your belly (if you add an extra noddle under your chin).”
Now you can swim, sip your drink, and feel more free in the water this summer!
