Swimsuits for moms

Are moms supposed to look frumpy at the beach? Of course not! Get inspired by these women’s swimwear styles that are great for moms.

Just because you’ve entered into the “Mommy Zone” doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy being stylish every day. There’s no rule that says you can only buy swimwear that makes you look frumpy. There are swimsuits for after you have a baby and there are  bathing suits for moms with somewhat older kids.

That being said, finding the balance between practicality and fashionable can be a challenge: you’re a woman first and foremost, so you want to maintain that individuality, but you still want to build a wardrobe that will get you through every day mommy life with confidence and ease. If you have a newborn or young toddlers, you especially want to keep it budget friendly: food, crafting + painting, and outdoor activities means lots of “wardrobe changes” so strive to find pieces that are chic, versatile, and affordable. The key to being a hot mama at the beach is finding swim pieces that are comfortable, that you feel confident in and that you’ll love to wear every time.

And now that Summer is officially here, family vacations, days by the pool and trips to the lake are on the near horizon, so you want to make sure you have a few suits that are cute, easy to move around in, and can serve double duty when needed. The last thing you want to worry about is how your suit fits!
One-Pieces: The Classic Swimsuit for Mothers

The go-to women’s swimwear for everyone (not just moms). A one-piece bathing suit with thicker straps is a great choice for the mom that needs a little more support up top. This style can be worn under sundresses and cover-ups, or even worn with a pair of shorts. If you have an active child, this swimwear style makes it so you don’t have to worry about straps moving or coming undone as you splash around with them in the water. There’s lots of one-piece swimsuits that look great on moms like you.

The Incredible Mom Bikini

If you’re one of the moms that were lucky enough to have their beach body bounce back after giving birth and/or you put in a LOT of hard work to get back in shape, the easiest way to show off your new figure is with a sexy bikini. For those days when you’re traveling kid free to the beach and just want to have a little fun, a bikini in a pretty bright color or print will highlight that taunt belly and killer legs.

The Tankini: Mom’s New Best Friend At the Beach

The tankini is pretty much the quintessential piece of women’s swimwear for mothers. It combines the coverage and body flattering features of a one piece swimsuit, while giving the comfort and ease of a bikini. All while still looking hip and stylish and fashionable. And isn’t that what we all want? Tankinis are a great way to subtly hide your pooch and help you look your best this summer. And if you’ve ever tried to go to the bathroom  with young kids in tow you’ll know how much easier a two-piece tankini is to manage.

Alternatively, all moms need to know that life is not limited to just flowy tankinis after babies! Form hugging tankinis can sometimes hide your stomach better than loose fitting ones. Look for ones with embellishments like bows or fun patterns and designs.

Before you grab your old workout gear, think about investing in a few cute cover-ups. You can wear them alone or slip them over your swimsuit. Just be sure to pick one that compliments your suit so that you won’t have too many clashing prints or wind up with weird tan lines.
