Best Bets

Swim lessons by a coveted swim instructor. Plus, a prescription deep-sea mask, OnGossamer's boy-cut panties, and more.


The Best Bet
This summer’s milestone was supposed to be teaching your kid how to swim, but despite numerous “mommy and me” classes and countless hours at the beach, your child is still clinging like a nervous barnacle. Call in Brooke Churchill, a coveted swim instructor who shuttles between Manhattan, the Hamptons, and Westchester all summer, expertly liberating children from their fear of the deep end. Churchill, who has a degree in art therapy (and the tactics and demeanor to match) spends time getting to know your child, assessing weaknesses and tailoring her techniques. You might even be able to float on your own ($150 for one hour; 212-725-6020 or brooke@brookechurchill.com).
