Best Swimsuits to Wear After Having a Baby

best bathing suits for after you have a baby

After I had my first baby, I was pretty chill about losing the baby weight. I was focused on enjoying being with my baby and adjusting to life as a working mom. This time around, I had high hopes of getting in the best shape of my life after having Charlotte. However, renovations and a move followed by a global pandemic and balancing work and watching two kids full-time has put those plans on the back burner. And now, here we are – summer and bathing suit season is here and the abs I had dreamed of are nowhere to be seen. Hence, I’ve been doing a lot of research to find the best swimsuits to wear after having a baby.

There was a time in my life when I would have let that stop me from enjoying the pool and beach — I would have hid under a coverup. But I can’t wait to swim with Charlie and James this summer now that our beaches and pool will be opening up. But that doesn’t mean I’m going to be rocking a teeny tiny bikini anytime soon. Enter: the postpartum bathing suit aka a forgiving suit that hides any postpartum lumps and bumps, sucks you in, and offers enough coverage for swimming with your little one. After doing a ton of frankly heartbreaking and sometimes scary research of trying on way too many bathing suits, I’ve found the best swimsuits to wear after having a baby.

While I’m not ready to do a swimsuit try-on for you guys (trust me when I say it’s not pretty), I did find a bunch of flattering postpartum bathing suits that are great for after you’ve given birth, including a super flattering bikini that’s under $25(!!). Here are the best swimsuits to wear after having a baby.
