Pretty much every mom I know struggles over whether or not it's acceptable to wear a bikini on the beach, you know, because popping out a kid somehow makes it sort of frowned upon to show off too much skin.
But apparently one Jersey Shore star has figured out the perfect balance of sexy and refined. Check out TMZ's photo of Snooki in a bikini chilling at the beach with Jionni LaValle and baby Lorenzo in Seaside Heights yesterday.
Huh. Lorezno didn't appear to be having a great time, but it's obvious that Snooki felt perfectly comfortable strutting her stuff for the cameras lurking nearby.
You definitely need to have a certain body type to pull off this style, but don't you kind of love how the top of her swimsuit has the whole push-up, sexy thing going on, and the bottom is more retro?
Swimwear from a bygone era really seems to be making a comeback these days. As a mom, it makes so much more sense to wear something that you can actually maneuver around in with a kid pulling on you versus some string bikini that falls right off with one tug.
Sure, itty-bitty two-pieces are great if you're spending the day laying out by the pool sans kiddos (a total luxury) -- but if they're tagging along with you? Forget it. Wearing something skimpy is basically a guarantee that you'll wind up mooning or flashing everyone around you.
Yep. Mama Snooki has a great blend of summer style going on with this one.
(If only we all had abs flat enough to look as good as her in a suit like this.)
What do you think of Snooki's bikini?
