I love this color, I love the fit and my son is very comfortable in it.
Love how thin it is, great fit, and dries quickly because not much to it.
They're perfect for little ones, whether learning to swim or splashing in the water.

    I purchased one of these for swim lessons last spring as disposable swim diapers were not allowed, plus I didn't want to waste money on a pack of disposables. It did great and I loved it! The snaps on the sides were the #1 reason I bought this particular brand...imagine taking off a wet cloth swim diaper, that fits snugly to keep messes contained. She did poop a couple times when she was in the wading pool at home. It will contain the mess...depending on the consistency. If it is a loose stool, the water in the pool will break it apart, therefore allowing some to escape. Like other swim diapers, these are not meant to be leakproof, so it was no surprise you could see some come out. If it is a more solid mess, I imagine it would be better.
    I am about to order my second one for my daughter for this year! I love it and have recommended it to others.

    What I like:
    - Snaps make it easy to remove*
    - Little ruffle is cute
    - Practical - reusable swim diaper
    - Not a disposable swim diaper**

    What you may not like:
    - Not leak proof. If baby is playing outside the water, then this will only hold in messy pants. If I have an experience of out of the water pee, I'll update if that happens. It might contain a litle pee because when I get out of the pool, the bottom has some water captured inside - but easy to squeeze out. Even if this Imse bottom holds in the pee, there is nothing to soak it up so the pee is going to get on SOMETHING.
    - If you get a messy pant, then you've got to clean it up. If you don't use cloth diapers (and I don't), then this is something "new". This is applicable to all reusable swim diapers.

    Comparable products:
    iPlay elastic waist/leg swim bottoms: I don't like that there isn't a matching top. I usually put the bottoms on under a regular bathing suit, but then a funny pattern sticks out. Does absolutely nothing to hold in pee. Like a funnel.
    iPlay full suit: Exceptionally difficult to put on.
    iPlay with snaps - I purchased an iPlay white swim diaper with snaps. It is still a little big, so I have only used it once and it has a similar feature as this Imse bottom - easy off with the snaps. I also like that I can put a white swim diaper under any bathing suit and not have a pattern clash.

    Notes:
    * If the bottom is dry, it is easy to slip on with snaps already done up
    ** I want to avoid disposable swim diapers.

    This was my first swim diaper. I was disappointed to realize it only has snaps on one side. I still had to drag the diaper up and down her legs. It is constructed of double-thickness swim-suit material. There is no way to adjust the leg openings if they are too big or small, and the diaper will not work if they are too loose. The Kushies [] is constructed like a diaper, with two velcro tabs that are also tied together for extra security. This allows me to adjust how tight the diaper fits my baby. It also has a mesh liner to help keep accidents in.

    I really wanted this to work but the first time my son pooped in it, it totally leaked everywhere! I have the size large and my son is at the end of the weight range so it isn't because it didn't fit. It just doesn't contain anything in it. It is a cute diaper but not functional what so ever. This is a waste of money.

    We used this diaper all summer and it was perfect. It was much easier to get on and off than the disposable swim diapers. My son is a little skinny guy and it fit him perfectly. I would say that it runs a little small based on the weight recommendation.

    Size: Medium: 3-6 months, 15-22 lbs/7-10 kgColor: Turquoise Dots with Frills Verified Purchase
    This was one of the few options when it comes to swim diaper options for babies under 6 months, and since we were taking our small 5 month old on vacation which included a pool, we selected this one as it was one of the few that would fit her, and to be honest, it is really cute.

    We have used this swim diaper at least a dozen times now, and it is snug fitting, and easy to get off and on. My child has never had a bowel movement while wearing it, so I can't say for sure how works, but the fit is fantastic, leading me to believe it would keep messes in effectively.

    The only con for me is that they are pretty expensive and hard to find in the US. Because of this, I tried a couple other brands, including iplay and Charlie banana, and neither fit as well as the Imse Vimse, even as my daughter is much larger at 13 months.

    So we are back on Amazon, looking for a larger size and willing to pay a premium for a quality European product.

    We love, love, love these swim diapers. The snap-closed sides are much nicer than the pull-up style, and they are easier to wash than the velcro kind (which seem to stick to other laundry). They have the plastic liner that the public pools around here require, so we don't need an extra set of plastic pants, like you would over a disposable swim diaper.

    We took two of these and one of the velcro kind to Mexico for a weeklong beach vacation, after using these diapers for swim lessons for a year. We had never had poop in one until the vacation, but were relatively pleased with how it dealt---the poop stayed in the diaper until she was out of the water, and even when she started running away from us (of course---she did not want to be changed) it was mostly contained. A tighter fit (our daughter was on the borderline between sizes) might have solved that problem, and then they'd be perfect.
