Postpartum Swim

I scoured Nordstrom for a winning swimsuit (or 2) to rock all summer. From colorful 1-piece prints + a sexy li'l black suit by BLEU, to a sweet gingham by Robin Piccone... -- I'm pleasantly surprised by the swimsuits & bikinis for 2022.
Swimsuit try-ons used to require a lot of emotional lifting. It wasn't just an article of clothing; it was a moral indictment. That was until I reached a point last year and had a lightbulb moment; "What if I'm the perfect size just the way I am? What could I be doing if I didn't spend so much time...
I'm proud to introduce you to Agua Bendita, a Colombian brand that makes beautiful swimwear. The lace-up of these high-rise bottoms adjust to different body shapes.
I had a tummy tuck over two years ago, yet I haven't worn a low-rise bikini. While my reasons to go for surgery were mainly medical to help my hernia and diastasis recti, there was always that part of me that thought I would go back easily to wearing my pre-baby bikinis (remember that postpartum swimwear article?). It didn't...
Flirty, flattering swimwear — we crave it! SO, we're pleasantly surprised by Sea Level Swim. Supportive swimsuits (think postpartum) reviewed by an actual mom.
Hold up. Have you tried the swimwear brand Sea Level? I was searching for one-piece bathing suits -- what I feel like I’ve been doing for months now -- when I came across a few suits that had just enough of the right words in the description that made me add some to my cart. Seriously Supportive One-Piece Swimsuits...
I don't want to be that mom who waves off swimming w/ her kids b/c she doesn't want to don a swimsuit, but I also want to feel good in my postpartum body.
Real Talk: I struggled with how to start this post. Yeah, I can be pithy and self-deprecating, but that didn't feel right for a postpartum swimsuit post. I also didn't want to be like "OMG I put on a (name brand) swimsuit and suddenly I learned how to love the skin I'm in" because no garment is that life-altering,...
Let's swim, Mamas! We found cute, classic maternity bathing suits — some for pregnancy & into postpartum, too. Cute stripes, great colors & sexy details.
Hey, gorgeous mamas! There are some seriously cute maternity swimsuits out there for you right now! Mamas, you are in luck — at least when it comes to maternity swimwear...I feel like the options were way less cute when I was pregnant with my now 7-year-old, friends. Think, all the coverage and oddly shaped swim skirts. Well, I'm seeing...
Finiding postpartum swimwear is HARD. We try all the mom swimsuits - tankinis, control swimwear, ruched bathing suits, high-waist bikinis...See what works.
This is a more recent play on Shana's postpartum swimwear post originally published in 2011 and refreshed by me in 2017. While some of the swimsuits I tried on are sold out, you can find even better picks specific to each category. Updated for 2022. Looking for flattering postpartum clothes and swimwear is not easy at all. This was the...
Flattering swimwear is hard to find. SO, we've searched ALL the webs to find 5 styles of the most waist-defining, 1-piece bathing suits for all body types.
The pursuit of the perfect swimsuit is a daunting and seemingly endless task (trust us, we know all too well). We've learned a few tricks of the trade when it comes to finding flattering suits — especially one-pieces. SO, we're here to share what we've found. Without further ado, here are five tips for finding one-pieces that help define...
Gals — swim season is ALMOST here. With a postpartum bod & nursing-friendly needs, it's a BIG DEAL. For swimming & running on the beach, here are my favs.
I've always worn bikinis. They always seemed...um...easier  — even after having Greenlea. After Ozzie, however, things are not "snapping" back into place as fast as I'd like them to. My C-section scar is a bit bigger and scarier than it was. And the girls are . . .  larger than I'm used to. It's hard not to feel like...
Finding cute maternity swimwear is TOUGH. BUT, a non-maternity bathing suit that works for all 9 months of pregnancy - GOLDEN. Here's my 1-piece for summer.
Since I'll be SUPER-pregnant this August, I've had my eye out for cute maternity swimsuits to wear this summer. Last time I was pregnant I just wore a two-piece, but this time around I have a big ol' hernia right around my belly button. Awesome. I mean, realistically it's not the end of the world . . . there...
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...
