Posted by Morgan Robins on

Becoming a Mama and having a baby is one of the most beautiful things that a woman can do. With a new baby, also comes a new body for mom. This new postpartum body brings some changes with it, and sometimes some extra consideration might be needed when it comes to fit, style and function of clothing to best flatter mom and her amazing body. Luckily, we have you covered when it comes to finding the best postpartum swimsuits!

First things first, there’s a lot of things to consider when it comes to what makes up the perfect postpartum swimsuit. Did you have a C-section and need something comfortable that doesn’t cut into you? Are you a nursing mama and would prefer easy access with your swimsuits?

Would you prefer something that helps to disguise any extra weight? If any of these things resonate with you, read on and we’ll help you find the best swimsuit for any postpartum body!

After reviewing our top 8 best swimsuits for mom, keep in mind that each of these suits feature our traditional leg cut which provides great booty coverage while maintaining a flattering fit. If you are someone who prefers more coverage, we also have the cutest swim shorts and a swim skirt that each pair beautifully with many of our suits! When it comes to finding that perfect postpartum swimsuit, you may also want to carefully consider sizing. Some mamas might be able to get away with ordering their pre-baby size, while other mamas might prefer to size up. We have a variety of size options so you can find the best fit for your new body! Finally, think about you own personal preference! Some mamas might prefer leaning towards a patterned suit to hide any sensitive areas, while others might opt for plain colors. Either way, with all these things to consider, finding something that you feel comfortable and confident in is the key!
