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...
Photo Credit: Danielle Pemble We're all about celebrating real bodies around here.  And while we'll admit to seeking out soft lighting (hint: on the beach 6-7PM is pure magic), there's no behind-the-scenes photoshopping.  And why would we?  Our bodies tell our life story.  And for many of us, that life story involves some pretty serious joy, in the form of body-wrecking...
cute swimsuits for moms
Hey, hey, HEY,  The Mom Edit's 2016 Swim Guide is here!!!   We started with one-pieces, but per reader requests, two-pieces will be coming out next week (and don't forget my personal favs - wetsuits). So keep on reading for our top one-piece picks from the Swim Guide - each member of The Mom Edit team has picked their favorites.  These are...
  Hey gang!  After SWOONING over a few swimsuits at LOFT, I ordered a couple to try on.  Just to see if they lived up to the hype.  (At least the hype I created IN MY MIND.)  It took me a bit to get these pics taken (the whole nipple reconstruction thing put a damper on things for a week...
I received an awesome email from reader J - it's one part cautionary tale and two parts GO MAMA. J had ordered a few swimsuits from our swim guide, and after they arrived, she took 5 minutes out of a crazy morning to try one on.  She snapped a quick selfie with "zero intentions of sharing publicly" and got back to morning craziness. Imagine her...
