Ever since having Leo I’ve been a bit more self-conscious of my tummy, Justin always tells me I look great and that I look awesome in a bikini and I KNOW this is all just in my head (funny how we all do this to ourselves, right?!) but for now I feel sooo much more comfortable in a one piece! Maybe until I start hitting the gym again (I’m not on much of a workout routine currently) but until then I think I’ll be rocking one-piece’s because they make me feel so much sexier and I also feel most comfortable chasing Leo around when I’m in my one-piece, as I feel like I don’t have to constantly be checking my suit, pulling up my bottoms or making sure my love handles are tucked away, these babies suck it all in for you, and keep it ALL in place, where it should be!! LOL! So this mama couldn’t be MORE excited that one-piece swimsuits are IN!!
At first I thought I was making a total “mom decision” when deciding to purchase and wear more one-piece suits but lately, so many Influencers (like Happily Grey and Sincerely Jules, for example) have been rocking more and more one-piece swimsuits which make me feel EVEN better about them and reinforces the fact that I’m actually in STYLE! LOL!!! And, not only are they in style BUT they’re SEXY and they provide lots of coverage to make you feel comfy when lounging by the pool on vacay, sipping on margs and chowing down on veggie tacos!! Hell, you can even chow down on MORE veggie tacos in these babies as your stomach is tucked away out of site!! Hell ya!!!
Speaking of comfy and sexy suits … how much do you love this cute and playful suit from Modcloth?! I love the fact that it’s so different from the rest of my swimsuits with its nautical look and I LOVE the collar and plunging neck and back!! Below I’m going to share some of my current favourite swimsuits from Modcloth along with 5 tips for selecting YOUR perfect swimsuit!!
1. Go for Dark and Patterened Suits
I find that dark coloured and patterned swimsuits are the most flattering, they help disguise the lumps and bumps and the little love handles while solid light coloured swimsuits tend to show more imperfections … including the dreaded CAMELTOE!! LOL!!
2. Treat It Like an Investment
I don’t feel guilty spending more money on a swimsuit because typically that means the quality is much better, the fabric will be thicker, and it won’t lose shape or bag out in areas you don’t want it to bag!! You’re more than likely to have a good quality swimsuit for a long time so it’s best to find one that checks all of these boxes so you’re happy with it for years!
3. Size Up
If you’re purchasing your swimsuit from Modcloth, I would suggest sizing up! So far I’ve had really great luck with Modcloth‘s full pieces suits but I do find they fit a bit small, I have around 3 or 4 suits from them and I’m happy with every single one of them. However, the last time I ordered, I ordered 4 suits and only one ended up fitting me. Also, Modcloth has a ton of plus size bathing suits and suits that also have an underwire so there are a bunch of different options for different body sizes which is so nice!!
4. Hit Up the Underwire
That’s right, as I mentioned above, I know many of you out there need a little extra support for the girls so make sure to go for a suit that has an underwire built right in, that way the girls will be in control and you’ll feel wayyy more comfortable!!
5. Have Fun with It
Don’t be afraid to go for bold colours or patterns (as long as you feel good in it and that camel toe is in hiding!), it’s fun to find swimsuits that are a bit of a statement and that are also cute, classic, timeless and SEXY!!
Are you on board with one-piece swimsuits?? Share your thoughts below!!
