An Ultimate Swimsuit Guide for Moms

Nicole Prince

Summertime used to mean full-out leisure: the newest Vogue, coconut-scented sunscreen, and a cute bikini, am I right? Then we became mothers and “Meet me at the beach” isn’t quite as simple. No matter what age your kids are, there’s more to think about: “Is my bathing suit breastfeeding friendly?” “Will my teenage daughter be seen with me?” “What does a grandma to wear?!” Well, we have answers. Read our simple guide to find the perfect swimsuit for any type of moms.

Swimsuits for Pregnant Moms

Maternity Current

Congrats, mama-to-be! There’s nothing sweeter than a mom rocking her bump on the beach. If you are looking for something a bit more covered, The Maternity Ribbed Current one-piece is perfect. The back straps are adjustable so the suit grows with your babe, and the built-in soft cups mean you’re newly enhanced curves have support. If a two-piece is more up your alley, The Maternity Ribbed Voyager Bikini Top and The Maternity Ribbed Classic High Rise Bikini Bottom are super-soft and comfy — but just a bit cheekier.

Swimsuits for Breastfeeding and Post-Partum Moms

The Atlas

You grew a baby, gave birth, and now you’re raising a child! We’ve got nothing but respect and admiration for you — and a couple excellent swimsuits as your body adjusts. If you’re breastfeeding, The Atlas is a great choice because the deep-v offers quick boob access and the wide straps give substantial support. Craving a bikini? We think you’ll feel confident in The Sunbather Bikini Top  (the adjustable racerback is key) and The Classic High Rise, which is available in seven fun prints and colors and keeps it all tucked in. 

Swimsuits for Toddler Moms

The Cove

Moms of toddlers, we salute you. You’re simultaneously trying to run after your two-year-old, feed everyone lunch, and build a sandcastle. Coverage is crucial here, because you’re basically participating in an extreme sport. The Cove offers a sleek and chic silhouette with a gorgeous high neck and The Fused Sidestroke is a sporty play on the one-shoulder swimsuit. Plus, both have brilliant colors to choose from!

Swimsuits for Moms of Kids

Mamas and Minis

The ultimate time to match with your littles is now — a special season when they’re proud to sport something just like their mama. Our Mamas + Minis collection features both identical and complementary styles for you and your mini-me. Cue the “awws!”

Swimsuits for Moms of Teenagers

The Marina

The key here is to look effortless. First up, The Marina. It’s a simple, on-trend style with a tasteful v-neck and the perfect pop of color. For some throwback fun, check out The High Kick. It’s a modern take on 90210.

Swimsuits for Grandmothers and Nanas

Fused Oasis

Having a hard time finding something — anything — that’s not matronly? We think you’re pretty cool and picked out a couple swimwear options that are perfect for the hip grandmother. The Tie Belted Cove was a collaboration with Summersalt’s friends at Modern Citizen. It’s chic and elegantly ties at the waist. Another option we love is The Fused Oasis which features waist detail too, just in the form of a slim belt. It reminds us of something an Old Hollywood star would wear.

Alright mamas: enjoy your summer! We’re rooting for you.
