It's that time of the year when everybody's showing some skin and their beach-ready body. But what if you didn't have the time to workout (because kids!) or you really can't flaunt six-pack abs in a two-piece bikini (because baby pouch!).
Here's our guide in choosing that perfect-for-the-summer swimsuit to address very specific mommy concerns.
Maillots are great for CS moms because you can easily hide your scar especially if you’ve got a vertical cut. But it doesn’t have to be unsexy! You can opt for one with cutouts on the sides—to show off a little more skin—or a deep neckline to flaunt your décolettage.
"Dark colors, especially black, can make you look smaller—even up top. Opt for a high or halter-neck style instead of a plunging neckline, and go for thick (not thin!) straps. A venus cut or one-strap style can be flattering since it gives great support while allowing you to bare some skin.
If you’re conscious about your arms, a long-sleeved rash guard or body suit can help you cover up. To flatter a fuller thigh, steer clear of high-cut legs and go for those that provide a little more coverage for your bum. Boyleg bikini bottoms work!
Camouflage your baby pouch with fun prints or shirring on the belly area. Color-blocking can help, too. Choose a suit with a darker-colored bottom for a slimming effect. Avoid whites and other light colors.
