Living in Florida, you can bet that my summer (and the rest of the year) involves hanging out by the pool or lounging on the beach. I’m never at a loss of what to wear while soaking up the rays, because SuperHeroStuff.com has me and my family covered (literally). This year, I decided to pair each member of my family up with a geeky swimsuit, as well as recommended reading material.

As the saying goes, ladies first. For the ladies, I picked out a Supergirl Wrap Halter Bikini ($43) that will make the boys go crazy. The only downside to this bikini (or upside for the guys) is the top alone ties in three different places and the bottom ties in two places. This is great for personalizing your coverage, but it can be a little difficult to do without a second set of hands (that’s where the guys come in handy). The Supergirl Women’s Costume Tank Dress ($27) goes great with this bikini and doubles as a cover-up when you want to walk the shops. For those who like to have a little music at the beach, check out the Superman symbol speaker wallet ($29). My reading material of choice for this outfit includes Superman/Batman Vol. 2: Supergirl, Supergirl Vol. 1: Power, and Supergirl Vol. 2: Candor. You can store it all in a matching Superman backpack ($55) and Supergirl Makeup Bag ($13). Supergirl Summer Fun

Next, we have a few things for the guys. In my “It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s…” collection, Superman shines with a comfy pair of board shorts ($32), the Superman Front & Back Image T-Shirt ($22), an embroidered hat ($20), a towel ($15), a rubber bracelet ($6), and a sweet collection of Superman titles including: Infinite Crisis, Superman: Birthright, and Superman/Batman Vol.3 : Absolute Power. Everything can be thrown into a matching Superman backpack ($59).

For the younger variety, I have designed two outfits—one for the girls and one for the boys.

The girls’ outfit was inspired by Wonder Woman! It includes a modest two-piece bathing suit ($25), an action-packed shirt to cover up between swims ($15), a Wonder Woman action figure ($19) to battle with the boys, and a journal ($15) to write down all their superhero thoughts. The reading selection includes age-appropriate Wonder Woman titles including Wonder Woman: Trial of the Amazons, Wonder Woman vs. Circe, and Wonder Woman: Creature of Chaos. Then, you can pack it all up in a Wonder Woman Backpack ($49).

While the girls are pretending to be Amazons, the boys can have fun climbing the walls with a Spider-Man-inspired collection.

The boys collection includes ultimate Spider-Man board shorts ($17), the Spidey mask t-shirt ($16), the Spider-Man Symbol 39Thirty baseball hat ($22), a Spider-Man plushy ($14), a lunchbox ($16), and the kid-friendly Marvel Universe Ultimate Spider-Man ($9) series. Pack it all up in a webcrawler-approved backpack ($23). Make sure you remember to throw some sunscreen in both of the kids’ bags before you hit the water.

When it comes to quality, it’s hard to beat SuperHeroStuff.com. I’ve had some of my shirts for five years, all without any issues when washing them. I recommend you get any items that are 100-percent cotton a size up, just in case they shrink the first time you wash them. And ladies, if you like the bathing suits and are well endowed like me, you will want to look over the bathing suit sizing very carefully. Bathing suits are not returnable, so if you mess up your size, you are out of luck.
