Beach-Blanket Mama: The Best Bathing Suits For New Moms
Mama's going to look hot this Spring break! New mothers often dread heading to the beach or pool, but there's no reason to sit under full-body armor just because you don't have your prebaby body back yet. There are plenty of guides to picking out the best suit for your body type, but few focus on the postpartum body. So we're helping new moms make the right pick. With larger chests and some extra weight around their midsections, postpartum women have different concerns than other bathing-suit shoppers. We've rounded up our favorite picks to help flaunt the new mom's best assets and minimize the rest. Check them out!
Profile by Gottex 'Tutti Frutti' Swim Dress
Who says a one-piece bathing suit can't be sexy? The Profile by Gottex "Tutti Frutti" Swim Dress ($138) has a flared silhouette to hide any leftover baby weight that Mama might not be ready to show off right now.
Magicsuit Sunset Cay Tankini Top
The tagline says it'll make Mama look like she's lost 10 pounds in 10 minutes. While we can't guarantee that Miraclesuit's Sunset Cay Tankini Top ($124) will do that, it will flatter a postpartum body. The flowing fabric helps cover up waists and hips, making it perfectly designed for mamas whose bodies aren't quite where they used to be.
ASOS Design Curve Tropical Bikini Set
Who says a new mama has to hide all her assets under a one-piece suit or tankini? The Curve Tropical Bikini Bottoms ($26) provide total lower-belly coverage, while the Curve Tropical Bikini Top ($32 ) features full-bust support.
Miraclesuit Caravan Cadiz Printed Flyaway Bandeau Tankini Top
Support a new mom's new cup size with a swimsuit designed for large-chested women. Miraclesuit's Caravan Cadiz Printed Flyaway Bandeau Tankini Top ($120) has not only a flowy style, but its molded cups also provide plenty of support for Mama's increased bust size.
Miraclesuit High-Waist Tummy Control Bikini Bottoms
If Mom's biggest trouble area is her midsection, Miraclesuit's High-Waist Tummy Control Bikini Bottoms ($72) will suck her in like no other suit. When it's paired with a tankini top, no one will ever know just how high her coverage goes.
Miraclesuit So Riche Marina Underwire Tankini Top
Talk about a piece that provides coverage where new moms need it most! Miraclesuit's So Riche Marina Underwire Tankini Top ($106) has a draped top with plenty of space for an expanded bustline and a tummy-control lining to hide any excess pounds.
'Tutti Frutti' Bandeau One-Piece Swimsuit
With a ruched bust, Profile by Gottex's "Tutti Frutti" Bandeau One-Piece Swimsuit ($118) may be just what the postpartum doctor ordered. Its hidden tummy-control panel gets the job done, without anyone seeing it in action. Consider it your stealth defense for a day at the beach (just don't forget the sunscreen!).
