Like it or not swim suit season is just around the corner, or in my case because I live in California, it’s here (eeek!). Whether you’re 1 month postpartum, or like me and nearly 1 year postpartum, you may not be quite ready to bust out your bikini yet. Finding a swimsuit as a new mom can be challenging,
I am a swim suit hoarder and love seeing the new style come out each year. There are so many great styles out right now that I have to share! This post is dedicated to moms who are still working on their “post baby body” and women just looking for a cute suit for an upcoming vacation (hello Spring Break!) or pool day. I feel like most moms, or any women for that matter, will never be 100% confident with her body, so it’s better to just embrace it and find flattering swimwear to help you look and feel your best.
Here are 6 of my favorite swimsuit styles that are super flattering and fun for new moms!
Left-Right, Top- Bottom
1. Plunging Neckline
First up is the plunging neckline one piece. I loooove this style and wear it all the time. Why not draw attention to one area you may actually want to show off post baby–thank you breastfeeding ;). And bonus- it’s a piece of cake to nurse in!
2. High Waisted Bikini
What’s better than a high waisted bottom to help cover up one of the most problematic areas for moms. Some moms have a scar on their tummies from a C-section that they may want to conceal, and others might have loose skin in that area that just isn’t the same as their pre-baby belly. A high waisted bikini still allows you to show some skin while covering your tummy.
3. Mesh Panels
This might be the biggest trend I’m seeing this year in swimwear. There are so many different ways mesh is being incorporated in swimwear and I love almost all of it. Mesh adds a “sexy” factor without being too revealing.
Skirted swimwear is another style that’s great for moms. It covers a little more of your thighs and bum than a traditional bikini or one piece bottom. I think the skirted look is totally adorable and girly.
5. Peplum Suit
Peplum suits are yet another way to help conceal that post baby belly. I am seeing peplum suits everywhere right now and every if you don’t have a mommy tummy you are trying to conceal, you should still try out this style! It’s adds an extra flair that takes a swimsuit to the next level.
Cutouts are a great way to spice up your swimwear. Depending on the cutout placement, it can help draw attention to or away from a certain area. Maybe you want to show the sides of your stomach, but not the front? A cutout suit is a perfect way to achieve that!
