More Mom Bathing Suits for Summer

Urban Outfitters; $78
If you're like me (or Michele), swimsuit season post-babies is all about coverage, but the right kind of coverage, because some coverage just causes rolls. But is the roll or the uncovered stretch mark worse?

Okay, swimsuit season is all about crying in the dressing room.

Luckily, I found a bathing suit this year that's working for me and I must share. That's it in the picture, only I've got breasts.

Which brings me to my how to wear it advice for swimwear: Wear it with confidence.

We all have our flaws, and the point of getting into a swimsuit is to have fun, not look like the supermodel we are not.

I'm not the only one who's been on the mad hunt. Rebecca Woolf is showing you all how to rock the post-baby bathing suit at Girl's Gone Child. She even explained (convincingly!) the beauty of the string bikini.

I'm blown away by the different cuts and colors she's found out there because I feel like every year I search and I never find. I'm bookmarking this list so next year when I'm on the verge of tears again, I'll remind myself, "Confidence!" Because if I can't find an esteem-boosting mom option in her picks, then I should probably just stay out of the sun.

I absolutely ADORE that red polka-dot bathing suit and will be rocking it asap -- but I do so wish they didn't have it on a barely pubescent model!

I love that swimsuit!

I'm wearing a one piece for the first time this year, post partum.  I found a retro black swimsuit (sort of an Esther Williams knock-off) at Target.  I love it.  It's a black bandeau "swimdress" that has shirred gatherings in all the right places. 

Actually, I was really surprised at the selection of retro-inspired swimwear at Target this year!

I just purchased a one peice at target, its a "swimdress" and halter with a low back and a little bit of a skirt around the bottom, but you can adjust it to show some cheek if you want ;) its also shirred on the sides. I ordered it online and have yet to try it on, but the reviews were awesome from a size 2- size 14! and everyone said they looked great in it... so we shall see ;) I needed a cute 1 peice that is toddler friendly from pulling down my bikini bottom like last year!
