Summer is here, which means it’s officially swimsuit season. And before you say, “I’m a mom, I can’t rock a bikini,” read the following:
How to Rock a Bikini When You’re a Mom:
Step 1 – Buy bikini
Step 2 – Put bikini on
Step 3 – Rock bikini
If you want to wear a bikini, tankini or one-piece this summer, being a mom is absolutely NO reason not to. It doeesn’t matter if you have stretch marks (aka “tiger stripes”) you’re still carrying some baby weight, or you’re breastfeeding.
Being a mom doesn’t mean that you can’t rock cute clothes and look and feel your best.
I think the key to truly rocking a swimsuit is finding something that you love and feel confident in. If you’re self-conscious about your stretch marks, it doesn’t matter how much I (or anyone else) tells you to embrace them, you’re still going to feel self-conscious and just want to throw a t-shirt over your swimsuit.
Fortunately, there are so many swimsuits out there these days, that you’re definitely going to be able to find something that you love.
Whether you want to rock a bikini, a tankini or a one-piece, I’ve rounded up the top swimsuits for moms below.
