I’m not particular about my swimsuits… Said no girl ever. In fact, the suit search can be a tough one especially when you don’t have the time and fitting rooms are a nightmare with two curious toddlers at your ankles. I get you Mama. Same. I do a lot of shopping online as I know you do as well and I’ve made sure to bookmark all my favorites so that I can pass them off to you. Since our budgets often time get spend on double pump lattes and blueberry muffins, we need something affordable but we also want to feel sexy and confident. So, after you’ve dumped cash at the kid-stores annual back-to-school sale, sneak in a suit or two for yourself cuz babe, you deserve it.
Lets chat about the ever-so-often mention of “high waisted”. Mom’s, we love it, really, anyone loves a good high waist. If it was up to me, everything would come in at the daintiest part of my body. It’s just so flattering. However, when searching for a suit, there now comes “high-thigh” or “high-leg” which is a step up to high waist.
You can have a high waisted suit that can cut off your legs if it doesn’t climb that thigh. Not to mention it can choke the saddle bags area making you look like a sand muffin on the beach. We don’t want that.
Now, I’ve personally seen them get so high, they are nearly under your arm and that’s a bit excessive. For me at least, I need just enough to give my legs the extra length all whilst being okay to be seen in front of my kids.
Now the suit I’m wearing is our cotton bikini from Tres Vu. It’s a beauty and is THE most uncommon suit I’ve come across. Smocked bottoms that are so stretchy in a milky white hue that eagerly compliments the tie front top giving the decolletage a seamless and even tan. The material is like a linen cross and folded over front doubles the material so as to confidently display your chest even on a cold day… If you know what I mean. If this suit is something you’d like to try, go ahead and use code: BIKINI5 for $5 off! It’s perfect and I know you would love it. Looking for something else? Scroll down and find all my high-waisted picks. None of which will make a muffin out of you…
