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...

You may have seen, if you follow me on Instagram (@camilledipaola), that I made a big trip to Everything But Water and tried on a ridiculous amount of bathing suits. The things you'll do for super cool readers...sheesh. I even shaved my legs (and other spots) for this, so yeh. This is super legit and you had better keep scrolling. ;) One-Pieces,...
    Just for fun, we decided to highlight our favorite picks from the 2015 Swim Guide.  These are the suits that we've either tried and loved (fit notes included) or the suits that got us clicking "Add to Shopping Cart".  And, as always, if you've found a winner that we haven't talked about....WE WANT TO KNOW.  (Bonus points for some...
  Guys, I've had a long-standing love affair with J.Crew Swim.  It started in high school when I bought a light blue and white seersucker string bikini that my little sister took one look at and pronounced, "DISGUSTING". Yeah, it was hot. Fast forward, uh, several years and I'm still a huge fan (and Scotti is now too - she quickly...
Hey there, Mama!  Dreading swim season?  I hope not.  There's nothing more bonding and connecting and amazing than spending long summer days at the beach (or pool) with your kiddos.  There's just something about a little water, a little sand....add in kids (and bubbles) and you've got a pretty magical combination.  The last thing anyone wants to do is...
  We had an amazing time in Cape May this past weekend.  It was just warm enough to run around in a swimsuit (and get a little sunburned).  I think summer may actually be coming.  Which means....swimsuits!     Nothing dampens new-baby excitement like the realization that you'll need to wear a swimsuit.  But there are a few swimwear strategies I made my...
Mamas, I literally gasped in delight when my friend Daisy* texted me this pic: *My name is not really Daisy   I mean for one:  gorgeous.  And?  Even better?  Daisy is only seven months post-partum.  SEVEN.  Go ahead - take another loooong look.  Amazing, no? And it gets better.  Daisy wrote: Okay, I might have found a magical mom suit. Husband loves it, it's...
