25 Flattering Swimsuits for All Post-Baby Body TypesMichelle Horton
Post-baby bodies aren’t created equally, yet we can all be uniquely challenged when it comes to bathing suit season. For many women, the post-baby body — whether it’s 3 months or 3 years later — can be difficult to dress because it’s a new body.
Some women are carrying around extra baby weight.
Others are back to their pre-baby size, but are feeling self-conscious about a puckered stomach and new cup size.
And the lucky ones are only concerned about covering up a splash of stretch marks.
Whether you’re petite or plus-size, you can find perfectly flattering swimsuits for your post-baby body. I promise!
Here’s 25 to choose from:
