Spread the love.

Becoming a mom changes everything, including how we approach what we wear to the beach or pool. If, like me, the thought of slipping into an itty bitty bikini post-babies seems less appealing than before, you’re in good company. The quest for comfortable, stylish and flattering swimsuits for moms is a common one, but it shouldn’t be a source of stress. Instead, it’s an opportunity to rediscover your style and what makes you feel fabulous.

Flattering Swimsuits for Moms: Understanding Your Body and Choices

First things first: every mom’s body is unique, and every body is a beach body! The key is finding a swimsuit that makes you feel confident and comfortable. Modern swimwear designs are wonderfully inclusive, offering something for every shape, size, and preference, so there’s no need to settle for less than perfect.

High-Waisted Mom Bathing Suits: A Nod to Retro Elegance

High-waisted bikinis can be a fantastic choice for moms. They offer more coverage for the midsection while still maintaining that classic bikini look. These pieces often come in bold patterns and colors, allowing for playful self-expression. Plus, they pay homage to the vintage glamour of the 1950s and 60s, when high waists ruled the scene.

Perfect for chasing toddlers around the pool or lounging in the sun, they provide a comfortable fit without sacrificing style. Many tankinis also feature built-in support features, making them a practical choice for post-baby bodies.

One-Pieces With a Twist

Gone are the days when one-piece swimsuits meant sacrificing personal style for comfort and coverage. Today’s designs include elegant cut-outs, mesh inserts, and ruching details that flatter the figure beautifully. Look for styles with adjustable straps and built-in cups for added support where it’s needed.

1. Yellow Ruffle Lace Up Back One-Piece Swimsuit – Another flattering suit that gives me all of the sunshine vibes. I sized up for this one to a large because without the crisscross being right over my momma pooch it’s a tad higher and I didn’t want it to be too snug in that belly department and it was perfect! 

2. One Shoulder Cut Out Ribbed  – Another favorite of mine I’ve been wearing on repeat. I love a good shoulder one piece and a simple cutout on the side to still feel a little sexy. And this one is sporty too. Great for if you’re hiking or running around too. The ribbing is thick and it’s perfect to still hide that midsection. I bought this one in the “coffee” color in a size medium, true to size.

The high-waisted bottoms offer a flattering fit, hugging your curves just above the belly button for a trendy silhouette.

For reference, I am wearing a size small and I am 5’5″ tall, weighing 125 pounds and have basically lost all my boobs since babies and being on a weight-loss journey.

5. Color Block Wrap Crisscross One Piece Swimsuit – This is my favorite! I love the orange and white hues, it gives me all of the sunshine vibes. I bought a medium in this suite, and it was true to size. And it’s so comfortable. The crisscross pieces are my jam this year! 

6. Summer Bliss Striped Floral Wrap One Piece Swimsuit – I’m all about those side wraps, and it’s the perfect way to hide that momma pooch. I got a medium in this and to be honest, I wish I would have sized up to a Large. It fits perfectly, but the deep V just comes up a bit too much for me for comfort. But if you like it high, it’s true to size.

9. Cut Out One Piece, One Strap – I absolutely adore the ribbed detailing on this one piece swimsuit—it’s incredibly soft to the touch, making it a delight to wear for long hours at the beach.
