For self-love & body positivity, we're baring it all — well, close. Swimsuits that make us feel good, (plus being postpartum & nursing-friendly) we got 'em.
If your sister-in-law asked you to get into a swimsuit to pose for pictures that would be posted on the internet, what would you say? No? Yeah, these beautiful ladies said no to me too. And as much as I like to think of myself as being pretty persuasive, that's not why they ended up agreeing to do this...
After we posted our picks for supportive swimwear for larger busts lots of you were asking how these suits fit in real life. So I headed off to the dressing room, even though this might be the least comfortable post I've done to date. However reading Kim's amazing, inspiring story changed my perspective. In 50 years I don't want to look back and regret not posting...
School is (finally) out in Philadelphia, and we're about to head for the shore.  There's nothing I like better than long, slow summer days at the beach.  Biking to the ice cream shop, playing catch, collecting rocks and shells, and falling asleep at night with the sound of the surf fresh in our ears. My boys love it too.  They can...
My friend Marty recently reached out.  She and I were in a breastfeeding support group together after Raines was born.  It was a fun group; after each session, a bunch of us would usually go out for beer.  Our kiddos - well-nursed for prob the only time that week - would usually sleep for a good two hours. Sometimes?  Three.  That,...
We received an email from reader Katie.  She wrote, "Totally shocked I'm doing this, but here goes nothing...." and then proceeded to blow my mind with the most genius (and sexy!!) post-partum swimsuit ever. Katie is wearing Gottex's Monte Carlo High-Neck One-piece and...WOW.  Apparently she's getting loads of compliments at the pool from both moms and non-moms alike, and frankly,...
Got your swimmin' suit all ready for the holiday weekend?? Yeah.  Me neither. But I've been busy:  completely re-doing our 2017 Swim Guide with all new, gorgeous, fully in-stock suits.  There are some beauties, for sure.  And many of my favs are from....DRUMROLL PLEASE....Amazon.  With Prime shipping.  YESSSSSSSSSS. I've got some shopping to do.  Keep clicking to see our fav suits, all available on...
Gang, I'm a longtime fan of Lemlem:  the floaty scarves and dresses, the summer-ready patterns, and the fact that the brand is committed to hiring women, elevating African artisanship and creating more jobs in African nations.  The only downside is that true artisanship - compared to fast fashion - costs more.  Pieces in the Lemlem collection often range from $100...
Hey all! We've been getting tons of questions from you ladies about swim styles that offer a bit more support up top, especially for larger busts. It can be really disappointing when you love a certain style, only to try it on and feel like the designers forgot about that silly thing called gravity? Or if you've nursed a few...
Going somewhere warm for Spring Break? We will be heading to the Oregon Coast, so I will not be sporting a swimsuit this time. Brrrr. But, we recently spent a week in South Florida with my parents and I discovered my new favorite swimsuit style - the high neck suit. Why is this my new favorite style, you might ask?...
    See that smug little grin?  It's the grin of a Mama who has found the perfect swimsuit.  And Abigail really did - wait until you see it.  Even better?  Reader Elizabeth also wrote in with three seriously good options.  Let's do this! Abigail's Find I received this sweet note from Abigail - I found her perspective and words so uplifting, I hope...
