As cliche as it may sound, I never in my life felt more comfortable in my skin than I do now since becoming a mother. I know it can be a challenge to not fixate on the cellulite, stretch marks, and pudgy belly we may accumulate during motherhood. But it’s so important for us as mamas to be confident in our own skin and set an example for our little ones. So instead of covering up at the beach this year, let’s flaunt it. Run, splash, and play with your kiddos in one of these gorgeous swimsuits I’ve hand-picked just for my readers.
There’s something for everyone when it comes to one-piece swimsuits. Not 100% comfortable with your post-baby belly? Try a geometric print or trendy peplum top.
