And thanks to modern technology, you no longer have to undergo the embarrassing task of trying on the suits in the store! We’ve scoured the internet and compiled a list of cute, supportive, flattering and overall just the best swimsuits for moms on the market today!
1. Vintage Ruching
Ombre is so hot right now, which means this blue swimsuit will make you the hottest mama on the beach! The ruching is super flattering, and the twist along the bust line is a sweet design detail. The halter top straps are adjustable for maximum comfort and the cups are lined to prevent any, er… embarrassing moments.
2. Swim Dress
Ever go to a pool party and wish you could wear something other than a plain old swimsuit?
How about a swim dress? This retro-style bathing suit has the sweetest little skirt, perfect for both dancing with your party pals and hiding any tummy or thigh imperfections you might be self-conscious about. Plus, the suggestive keyhole in the bust area adds a nice little note of sexiness.
3. Pin-up Style One Piece
If you want to rock your swimsuit the same way you rocked your pin-up girl dress at the sock hop last week, this sailor-style one-piece is just the ticket.
