10 Fantastic Postpartum Swimsuits

The weather here in New England finally, finally, FINALLY turned warm this week. It was sunny and 75 degrees one day and my kids started begging to wear shorts and sandals. I was caught off-guard by it all because I haven’t started my seasonal clothing migration yet.

But what really hit me was the realization that I’m going to have my baby in June and I’ll have the whole summer ahead of me in my postpartum body. This isn’t my first time at the rodeo…I know what’s in store for me. I’m going to spend July and August with a major, floppy belly pooch. I plan to be comfy this summer in stretchy skirts and nursing tanks. And I’m not going to push myself to get back in shape right away like some crazed celebrity so I can look good in my bikini…but I also want to be comfortable taking my kids to the local swimming beach and pool and my current swimsuit will not cover my postpartum belly, so it’s time to shop!
