Bathing Suits for the “Mom-bod”

I really thought I’d be a better place right now – body wise – considering Brandon has been on the outside for nearly 14 months now; however, lets just say I’m not. While I still plan on rocking my typical ‘kini’s this year at the pool or beach, I want to share some options for those really wanting to keep things tucked and tight (especially if you plan on chasing some munchkins around).

SuitsI will be the first to admit that I’ve never been a fan of Tankini‘s…but they are coming back in style and look much more flattering. These options are great for covering a little extra skin in the mid-section from having a baby or one too-many-cupcakes over the last few months (raising my hand to both, thanks!). There’s strap less, one strap, halter and all that’s in between to be able to appeal to just about anyone!

Talk about coming a LONG way – one piece suits are back and they’re fierce…I’m actually considering trying some on! They are super cute and super flattering – you can feel comfortable and sexy all while keeping that belly tucked away. Moms – it’s also nursing friendly if you go with the bandeau option.

Here’s another trend that I’m not on board with but is SO popular – the high waist. Personally, no..it’s not for me. It’s cute on other people though! This is definitely your option if you are only carrying some extra weight in the midsection but still want that “bikini” feel. So easy to mix and match with tops you already have.

Last but not least, one of my favorites, a rashguard! I love this look because it’s super sporty and so comfortable and it works great with a growing bump!

For the Mama’s that are post baby, post nursing and feeling that their top half is lacking in some size, I suggest the ruffled bandeau for a boost “up there”! We all love throwing on shorts and a tank over the bathing suit to get from point A to point B…I’ll be the first one to say that’s my costume of choice. This year, spice things up with a cute little flowly dress and feel extra sexy!
