Summer is near, meaning swimsuits shopping is underway. As a mom of 3, I have found that this time of year has become more stressful than it was prior to having kids. Why has swimsuit season become so difficult?
New family, new body.
I knew that becoming a mother came with so many changes. My heart would grow in size as would my body as I carried each and every one of my kids for 9 months. After their birth, my body did what it could to ‘bounce’ back. We all know the challenges we all face during this time. So my bathing suits don’t quite fit the same way any more.
Finding that perfect mom-approved swimsuit.
Now to find that perfect swimsuit. When looking for that bathing suit, you need to keep in mind what aspects of your body you want to shine and if there are any areas you want to lessen. I never thought I would be a fan of one pieces until this past year. I LOVE one piece swimsuits! They are not only flattering, but they can be sexy as well.
I also am a huge fan of tops that provide not only support, but ones that I won’t be afraid of giving a surprise peep show at the beach while my toddler is crawling on me. Ladies, you know what I mean! As for the bottoms, this momma got back 😉 I need a bathing suit bottom that offers full coverage as well as a high waistband. The high waistband bathing suits are not only flattering when you find the right one, but they also provide the abdominal support that a lot of us mothers need after having babies.
My top 3 mom-approved swimsuits!
Target does it again! I found all 3 of these swimsuits at Target. You heard that right. What does Target not have that we can’t love and approve? All 3 of these suits offer support, coverage, and a bit of sexiness that we deserve as mothers and women.
Kona Sol Women’s Tortoise Ring One Piece Swimsuit – Kona Sol Animal Print
This suit is super cute on! V-neck top and a cheetah print that will have you feeling more than stylish. I have to add that the cinched sides are super flattering as well!
Shade & Shore Women’s Tall/Long Torso One Shoulder Mesh Inset One Piece Swimsuit – Shade & Shore Black
Another one piece that will make you feel like a million bucks without showing too much skin. The mesh detailing gives the classic, one shoulder swimsuit a touch of sophistication and a sex appeal. Who said you couldn’t feel sexy while also being a mom?
Kona Sol Women’s Twist Halter Bikini Top and High Waist Bottoms
Now I have a love/hate relationship with two pieces. They have to fit just right for me to feel comfortable chasing my kids around a beach or pool. This swimsuit is not only flattering, but is full of full coverage features. The halter top gives enough support while also providing enough coverage to prevent any unplanned peep shows from occurring. These high waist bottoms just might be my favorite pair yet! The full coverage back doesn’t make my butt look hungry and the ruched detailing on the front is very flattering. Plus, I love a good high waist bottom that provides support.
Be proud of that body you are in!
Lastly, the summer time can be a time where we all concentrate too much on how we look. Remind yourself that you are beautiful in the body you are in. It was created perfect, and then it turned around and created even more perfect little bodies: those kids! Now go enjoy your summer 🙂
