Swimwear ads have taken over my news feed which can only mean one thing...summer is right around the corner! However, trying on swimsuits at the tail end of winter is never a fun task, especially if you’re postpartum with a breastfeeding baby to consider. Girl, nothing is going to stand in the way of those waterfront afternoons on the horizon. We’ve gone ahead and rounded up the four swimsuits we know will look good on your mom bod plus a few kimonos to throw on over the top. So do some online shopping, pour yourself a glass of wine, and let the try on sesh begin!
We love J. Crew for their classic, timeless styles and this bandeau checks all the boxes. The side ruching on this one-piece makes for a flattering fit and in a world of cheeky bottoms we appreciate the roomy booty coverage too. The warm clementine color just looks like summer. $98 - Available on J.Crew.com
Another brand we are digging is Cupshe. If you haven’t tried their high waisted bottoms then you are missing out! We found this one-piece that has a few cute color options and the shirring design will compliment any body shape. At $24.99 you really can’t go wrong. $24.99 - Available on Cupshe.com
If your baby bump is popping in the heat of summer, chances are a dip in the pool will feel like absolute heaven. Andie Swim has got you covered! The Maternity Amalfi come in black, navy and red. $95 - Available on Andieswim.com
If you prefer a swimsuit that is most definitely made for nursing, then this is your gal. It has clips similar to a traditional nursing bra and generous booty coverage. $59 - Available on Amazon.com
When you are breastfeeding in a swimsuit a cover-up can be super handy, not only for keeping yourself covered, but also for providing a nice shady spot for your baby’s nursing sesh. I mean, we can appreciate that, right? This simple chiffon kimono from American Eagle comes in three prints, raw sienna, leopard and snake. $34.95 - Available on AE.com
Last, but not least, is this oversized beach shirt from ASOS. It’s breezy and lightweight, exactly what you want in the heat of summer. $28 - Available on ASOS.com
