Top 21 Swimsuits for Modern Mamas

Not yo’ mama’s suit!

Look, y’all.  I hate shopping for swimsuits.  Hate. It.

Shopping for a suit that looks halfway decent is like drinking just one glass of wine.  Rarely happens, friends. I need it to cover what jiggles, hold in what I don’t want popping out, and cover the majority of my tush so I don’t embarrass my pre-teen son.  BUT, since I want to participate in activities with my kiddos that involve the water, this mama went in search for a trendy swimsuit that won’t mortify my kids or mind wearing to a church-hosted swim night.

And lucky for you, I’m sharing my favorites!


Dillard’s

1) Cremieux Floral Bra Sized Keyhole High Neck ($66) and Engineered Scarf Print High Waist Bottom ($58)

I’m crazy about this print and the high waisted bottoms are super flattering.

2) Jag Leafy Escape High Neck Racerback Tankini ($88) and Jag Core Solid Boy Leg Short Swim Bottom ($58)

If you’ve got active kids to chase after, this racerback will keep annoying straps from falling.

 3) Lauren Ralph Lauren Beach Club Solids Ruffle Surplice One-Piece ($120)

Ruching is our friend, girls.  Side drape ANYTHING and it makes our waist look magically more narrow.  God bless it.

4) Lauren by Ralph Lauren Plus Dot Halter Top ($64) and Lauren by Ralph Lauren Plus Dot High Waist Skirted Bottom ($74)

12) Women’s Floral Longline Racerback Bikini Top – Indigo Blue – Tori Praver Seafoam($34.99)

Love the dreamy floral print with cutouts on this long line top.  BUT, you might want to look for different bottoms bc the one’s that match are Brazilian cut.  Might scare the neighbors…
