A Mom's Guide to Swimsuits
Here it is again – swimsuit season. This year it’s a little different for me, as this summer season will relocate me and my family to sunny Florida. Which, I suppose it is yet to be seen but I think it’s kind of always swimsuit season there? I don’t really even know but that fact alone makes me want to buy all the swimsuits! I’ve rounded up my favorites for the season that can help you, and whatever you’re trying to flaunt or forget, feel nothing but fabulous. Get ready.

A Little Tuck for that Tummy
No contest, this is my number one problem area. All of a sudden, I’m looking in the mirror and noticing that my stomach sticks out farther than my boobs. This is a first for me without the cause of pregnancy. And this season may not be the same as next, but this is where I am this year, so let me tell you what we can do about it.
Two things we can do here to minimize the tum are to add a little ruching or a little gather or to utilize higher waisted bottoms, either on their own with a bikini top or layered up with a longer tank, essentially giving you a little shapewear without the, well, the shapewear.
A Little Breathing Room
Can I coin the term mom-kini? Not because moms don’t have some rockin’ bods and deserve bikinis just like everyone else but because as moms, sometimes we’re just not into showing off all the same things we were before we were moms. I mean, that’s a thing, right? I’ll be honest, I would love to be back in a bikini one day – not this summer, but one day I can see myself rocking one or two of these.
No Shaving Required
When you’re ready for a pool day but also overdue for a bikini wax. Or hey, you just want a little more coverage. No judgment either way, here. I love these skirt and short options that are perfect for wrangling kids and also keeping a little modesty.
A Few More (because I just can't stand it)
Just a few more that I loved too much to keep to myself.
