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!
Let’s Get Beach Ready 1 of 12
Time to find a swimsuit that will make me feel awesome at the pool and beach this summer in my postpartum bod!
Asymmetrical Tank 2 of 12
I love how think tank is extra loose in the midsection--perfect for the extra loose postpartum belly!
Ruched Tank 3 of 12
This ruched tank could help hide the extra bulge in your midsection. Plus, it comes in a D-cup version to support your super-sized nursing chest!
The Bandini 4 of 12
This is one of my favorites! I love the loosesness around the torso and that it has detachable straps!
Cover Those Jugs 5 of 12
This suit as a lot going for it: the pattern distracts the eye from problem areas and the high neck allows for a more modest bustline so you aren't flashing everyone at the pool.
Patterns Are Good 6 of 12
Another variation on the tankini! This pattern screams "SUMMER!"
Zig and Zag 7 of 12
Stripes are really distracting, in a good way! Plus there is a whole affordable collection of mix and match tops and bottoms available.
New Item 8 of 12
See? Look how cute! Similar top but with bottom that gives slightly more coverage for the days you really aren't feeling like dealing with a bikini bottom.
Swimdress 9 of 12
I usually don't like swimdresses, but this one is adorable. I love polka dots!
Nursing Tankini 10 of 12
If you plan to breastfeed this summer then this top is perfect for those times you need to whip out a breast at the beach. The top allows easy access without you haveing to totally disrobe on top.
Patterned Nursing Tankini 11 of 12
I love the distracting pattern on this one and it has an elastic overtop to allow for easy nursing access.
Don’t Foget Your Coverup! 12 of 12
This coverup is awesome. Lightwieght and provides enough coverage that you could stop at a store on your way home and not feel half naked. Plus, it unbuttons in case you need to nurse!
