Swimsuit Woes

Our Internet has been down all week + the screen to my camera broke = not that into blogging. But now- I'm on the hunt.

Goal, same as last year: flattering suit to completely disguise tummy, lift boobs, elongate legs/arms, and still make me feel cute and youngish. Even slightly sexy. Suits matching this description come with a skirt and the option solid stripes or Hawaiian print. 

This mama will not wear a bikini again. But it's OK. There are a ton of cute one pieces out. I just haven't found the one for me. Last year I bought a cute Besty Johnson polka dot one piece but it doesn't even have a shelf bra. It's so uncomfortable not to have a built in bra so I have to wear a bikini top underneath and it hurts my neck. Here are my favorite's from Anthropologie. Even though they are way over my budget, I probably would still buy one if they had chest support. But they don't.



this one is my favorite...anthro (sold out)

Modcloth has some cute retro suits but I can't tell if I'm over that look. To be honest, I'm considering ordering a Miracle Suit. I'm not talking Victoria Secret's Miracle Suits (because they still don't cover enough for me), but I actually might try one of from here. I figure if I accessorize with a cute big hat and sunglasses it might look cute? It's funny, I'm trying so hard not to look 'momish,' but...I am a Mom.

Let me know if you have any one piece suggestions. I'm not big on tankinis. Happy swimsuit shopping :)

i think they retros one are very flattering, even if they are all the rage and kinda trendy. you would look soooo cute in one with the big ole hat!

I think the chick wearing the miracle suit would look good in a frumpy old lady bathing suit because she is a model. I want to see a normal woman/mom wearing a miracle suit.

Don't gag but Land's End. I ordered a cute retro styled tankini with polka dots and a ruffled skirt (part of the suit). It might look grandma-ish but not on a young chick like us! :-)
