A warning about this made the rounds last summer too, but it bears repeating . . .

If you’re shopping for a new bathing suit, steer clear of these colors . . . light blue and light green.  It’s even more important with KIDS’ bathing suits.

A company called Alive Solutions did two studies in a lake and a swimming pool.  And those two colors were the hardest to see in the water.  White was bad too.

It matters because it means they’re harder to see when keeping an eye on your kids.  And they’re the hardest for LIFEGUARDS to see.

They tested 14 different colors, and NEONS were the best.  The easiest colors to see in a pool were neon pink and neon orange.  For lakes or the ocean, neon orange ranked high again.  But neon pink wasn’t so great.

So if you’re buying your kid a new suit, bright orange is a good choice overall.  (Metro / CNN)
