Are you ready for this one? This is a pic of gorgeous Esther from last summer. Merely weeks after her fourth kiddo was born.
Did you catch that? Her fourth. Just weeks after.
“A FAVORITE past-time of my family’s is to go swimming. Faced with the prospect of a post baby body with a good month of summer left, I felt pressure to be game for the pool and for the lake at a moment’s notice. So I took my eight month pregnant self to the less than appealing local mall to check out the Land’s End swimsuits. Land’s End?? I was dubious. In fact, I never would have taken a second look if it hadn’t been for your blog. Ever. But as I walked through the swimsuit section I was seriously impressed with the quality of their suits. I could tell right away that these wouldn’t shift around or need constant adjusting. I found a style that I could easily nurse in and was happy to see that aside from being easy to untie and provide modest access, it also offered a fully lined and padded bust section which would be forgiving in case of nursing mishaps. What types of mishaps?? I don’t really know. It just seems better to have more than one thin layer between the girls and the pool going public just in case. I liked the color straight away, so I guessed at a size and brought the suit home. Since having Hollis it has really served me well. I haven’t been a bummer and squelched our pool/lake outings on account of feeling miserable in a swimsuit, and that has made my WHOLE family really happy!”
LOVE this. Esther (aka Chinny Chin Chin) is such a rock star. Her whole attitude is great. And when in doubt? Add big sunglasses and glam earrings. Rock on, baby.
UPDATES FOR 2015: Lands’ End has updated this style – it’s the Slender Grecian and now includes a more modest neckline which I HATE. However, the Shape and Enhance Ultra (with extra tummy control) might be a really good option, or try the Victoria’s Secret Ruched Halter or J.Crew’s Ruched Halter.
