Swimsuit season is upon us and lets face it trying on swimsuits as a mom vs. the college days is a little different! Long gone are the days that I look for the swimsuits that will give me the least tan lines, now I tend to go for the bathing suits that cover the most. As moms we have to face the reality that our bodies have changed and some of us are still trying to figure out how to navigate dressing our new “mom bods”. I was tired of hiding behind a swim skirt and tankini for the past few summers because my body now has cellulite, stretch marks, sagging “ladies” and about 20 pounds of baby weight to lose. I am a perfectionist at heart and no matter if I get my pre-baby body back by summer or not I am choosing to step out of my comfort zone and try different swimsuits this summer!

That being said I think as a mom I also look at the functionality of a swimsuit just as much as the print/color! No Mama wants their lady bits or boobs popping out of their swimsuit while they are chasing a kid at the beach or bent over the cooler getting snacks!!

So here are some of the hits and misses from the Target Swim line 2019! For your reference I am 5’5″ and about 163 lbs. I am pretty much between a Medium and Large and size 8 and 10 so I usually try both on to see which is more flattering! And the good news is Target is offering FREE SHIPPING and FREE RETURNS on all women’s swim so that is a huge win in my book!

I think my face says it all! This would be a wonderful swimsuit for your honeymoon or a romantic trip with your hubby. But, as a 36D/DD this bathing suit is not beach friendly for me with kids! Skip this one or get it for a romantic get-away ! Wearing size Large.

Well I thought high-waisted bottoms would be flattering….I was wrong. Wearing Large bottoms and 36D top.

This was the swimsuit I came to the store for. Sadly it was one of the least flattering on me!
The cutout really accentuated my “c-section pooch”. I also was wearing a 36C because that was the only size that would come close to fitting me! Maybe if I sized up I would like it better!

Wearing size 36D. Not a fan of this suit on me. It didn’t support the ladies and there was a whole lot of cheeks hanging out!

Yall this suit was so adorable! I am wearing a size Large but I wish I would have tried on the XL since this is a juniors brand! I think the XL would have fit perfect and I am kicking myself for not getting the Fuschia of this one too because it is out of stock right now in most sizes!

I never thought I would love a two piece again and this suit blew me away! The striped straps were so forgiving and did not dig into my sides! The top had enough support for the ladies but kept them nice and secure! This is my favorite suit I got! Wearing a Large bottom and 36D top.

This is another one of my favorites! So forgiving and perfect for moms! I didn’t even take a picture of the back because I loved it so much I knew it was a keeper! I am wearing a Medium in this suit!

XOXO,
