Do you have a vacation planned for this summer? Unless you plan on sitting on the beach or poolside you’ll need to pack a swimsuit to enjoy the water.
Look at this shopping guide featuring the best swimsuits for moms before packing your suitcase and getting ready to look your best.
Does just thinking about a trip to the women’s swimsuit aisle make you cringe? Your body has changed since you got pregnant or had children. You’re not sure what to wear to get in the pool or at the beach. You might be just starting your postpartum exercise journey and you haven’t seen results yet.
The good news, is there are a lot of options out there which means there’s a swimsuit for every mom’s body. From one piece to a bikini, accessorized with the cutest coverups, your choices are not limited. Let’s take a look, shall we?
One Piece Swimsuits
A one piece has to be anything but boring. The one piece swimsuit is a go to for many moms because it offers more coverage options. It helps with the appearance of slimming the belly, offers support for almost every bra size, and does no worry about pesky straps falling. Combine all those benefits and you can see why the one piece is a winner. Here are a couple of stylish options for your next swimming trip.
For Pregnant Moms: This cute pink floral one piece with ruffle trim is going to comfortably accentuate your bump without sacrificing comfort for style.
This ruched halter neck one piece comes in 9 colors and offers padded bra and high neck for support and shaping. That ruching around the tummy is flattering, so you’ll want to get your swimsuit in a bunch. In the best way possible, ha!
Here’s one more stylish take on the black one piece swimsuit. These are popular year after year and for good reason. It’s the beach version of the little black dress.
This is a good swimsuit for moms because of the tummy control and wide straps for support.
A one piece option is available for breastfeeding moms! This swimsuit offers an opening along the front chest seam for access to the breast.
If modest bathing suits are your thing, it’s good to know you have so many options that won’t leave you looking frumpy.
Bikini Bathing Suits
The bikini is your standard two piece bathing suit, a top, and a bottom. There are several different styles of bikinis, because the bathing suit top can have different shapes. You have a triangle, halter, bandeau options, etc.
If you’ve decided to wear a two piece, I want you to wear it in the most confident and comfortable way possible. Here are some options below if you’re ready to flaunt the skin you’re in. Go Mama!
This is one of my favorite swimsuits for moms ever! It’s the best of a bikini, so you can show a little skin and still camouflage the tummy area with the high-waisted bottom. It comes in 10 color options and is under 25 dollars.
Bonus: This is nursing mom approved! See what moms are saying in the reviews: I ordered this swimsuit for a week’s vacation at the lake. It got here just in time to be thrown into my suitcase without being tried on. It ended up being a great buy! Flattering, comfortable, had good coverage for playing with my kids, and was even nursing-friendly.
Another high waisted stunner with a retro vibe. Worried about your post baby body tummy? Forget about that! What moms are saying in the reviews: This suit made me feel comfortable in my post baby skin. So flattering to my curves and held everything where God meant it to be. Just the best purchase for the beach!
For the mama that’s a little more blessed up top, this high waisted bikini has underwire on the bathing suit top. Underwire tops are perfect for larger bra sizes or for anyone who wants a little more support. Hello full cup coverage!
What moms are saying in the reviews: After having 3 babies in 5 yrs, I needed a mom suit that is flattering, but hides my belly and holds it in…this suit is perfect. Flattering cut and design. I feel good in it, looks great and I’m able to play with my kids without anything popping out.
If you couldn’t tell, high waist bikini swimsuits are my jam. Let’s hop on over to tankini swimwear. We are still firmly in the two piece swimsuit for moms category here, but this is maximum coverage without giving up the convenience of a two piece.
A modern update on your standard tankini that is the two F’s. Say it with me, fashionable and full coverage!

Recommendations for the Best Swimsuit for Moms
I want to end this post on a super positive note. No matter your body shape or type all mom’s bodies are to be celebrated. You’re a new person since you became a mom. That never means that you can’t have body confidence. Don’t hide under a t-shirt this summer or avoid going in the water. Find a bathing suit that flatters your body and join the family in the water!
Memories are made on vacation. Don’t let your swimsuit choice hold you back.
