After having my first child, I can’t fit into any of the trendy one piece bathing suits that were in my closet. Even though I’ve lost weight, I’m still not at the size I was before. Rather than trying to shrink myself down, I decided that it was time to face reality and get a new bathing suit to wear. My goal was finding a bathing suit that didn’t make me look like a mom.
There’s a line you have to walk with bathing suits. The suit can’t be too revealing or sexy, but it can’t cover too much or it will be bland. My husband doesn’t share the same opinion and thinks I look great in anything, but that’s just him. While browsing for bathing suits, I stayed away from suits that had open back areas and missing portions on the sides. I’ve always heard that darker colors have a slimming effect, so I bought some bathing suits in a black and dark blue, with some unique patterns on then.
I looked better in the new bathing suits than I did in my old ones, and I felt more comfortable in them. Once my daughter becomes old enough to swim, I’ll have to find some bating suits for her.
