A situation with bathing suits. We have all been there. Baby on the hip, trying to make it through the wave pool and almost show a little something as you climb the exit ladder. I know, I am having flash backs of Great Wolfe Lodge circa 2012. But, I had a baby on a hip and was 22 weeks preggers.
This year, I will be heading to the pool and beach with three, 3 and under. EEK. 5 kids in total. For some reason, my anxiety level with 5 kids near water is sky high. I at least need a cute yet functional bathing suit while I try and relax. And by functional I mean no flashing the pool boy.

Fantastic Blouson Miraclesuit 3 of 11
Okay, don't cringe at the price just yet. Remember, you pay for what you get right? This is a Miraclesuit. Literally. For Moms like me who have surgery scars and stretch marks, a faux- tankini is genius. A foam-lined, built-in, soft cup bra is great for the added support you need and I love this sleek, fitted but not skimpy bottom.
