Bikini Whisperer: "I'm a new mom! What's the best suit for me?"

Posted by Bikini Owner in bikini, Bikini Whisperer, new mom, pregnant

Welcome to our new bikini advice column, featuring the hard-earned wisdom of our very own swimsuit master, the Bikini Whisperer. Today, we hear from a new mom looking for a bikini to suit her new life — and the Bikini Whisperer has some ideas for how to handle. Looking for some advice of your own? Drop us a line

Hi Bikini Whisperer,

I just had a baby! After being pregnant for what felt like a very long time, I am ready to head back to the beach. My body has obviously changed in all directions, and my bikini drawer has to go. Either I don’t fit into them or they’re just not appropriate for a new mom. I need something that is more functional, with fewer frills. I am breastfeeding, which also concerns me — what suit can I actually wear? Summertime is right around the corner, and I need your help. Can you recommend a few suits?

Sincerely,

New Mama

 

Dear New Mama,

Congrats on your new baby bundle!

Let’s get you back on board. You need something easy to wear and easy to remove — nothing strappy. Low maintenance is key, and breathable fabrics are a major plus. I’m also going after comfort! Let’s look for details that draw attention away from the body parts that have changed or that have you feeling self-conscious. If you feel like you should be a bit more modest as a new mama — look for something with more coverage but don’t neglect an edge of sex, like an open back or push-up top.

I’ll have you heading to the beach in no time.

XO,
Bikini Whisperer
