Dealing with potty time or diaper changes at the beach or the pool are easier said than done. Sure, you’re relieved that your toddler told you they had to go to the bathroom rather than breaking the cardinal “no pee in the pool” rule — but stripping out of a wet swimsuit to go to the bathroom is a difficult task.

Fortunately, that’s where this swimsuit steps in. The women behind the brand FASTEN, Alexis Castellano and Jill Slater, created a child’s bathing suit that makes diaper changes and that inevitable trip to the bathroom so much easier for parents.

Their swimsuits come equipped with a section that’s easily detachable at the bottom  (similar to a onesie) so that going to the restroom or changing a diaper is a hassle-free situation. There’s even a magnetic strip on the back of the swimsuit that will hold the piece you removed in place while you change your child’s diaper or while your child goes to the bathroom, ensuring a mess-free experience. Just genius!

It makes sense that this product is so intuitive and easy to use, considering it was designed by parents, for parents.

“We’re two moms that just wanted to make our lives easier,” co-founder Castellano told The Huffington Post. And by the looks of it, they’ve done just that.

See a FASTEN swimsuit in action on the company’s YouTube channel:

While these suits only have a few reviews on Amazon so far, each reviewer has given the swimwear options a 5-star review. And five out of five ain’t bad!

“The concept of this bathing suit is simple, yet genius. It’s one of those ‘why didn’t anyone think of this sooner’ products! The FASTEN bathing suit is so easy to open and easy to close, and eliminates the difficult squirming around, tugging dance that all little girls (and their moms) perform as they try to lift up a wet suit,” one satisfied mom wrote on Amazon.

Due to the adaptive nature of these suits, they’re also great for children with disabilities, and the creators of the brand are happy to see their products being useful to so many.

“We really love the adaptive aspect of the suits,” Castellano told Huffington Post. “We’re not just making an everyday mom’s life easier. We’re helping the community to feel like they can wear the bathing suit just like anyone else.”

Of course, this isn’t the only brand that’s making beach and pool days a little more bearable. There’s also a brand called SnapMe that uses snaps to make the lives of parents more simple come potty time.

The FASTEN swimsuits are on sale for as low as $19.99, and if you like their swimsuits, you may be interested in giving their leotards a try, too, if there are any little ballerinas in your family! The pink and black leotards retail for $34 each.
