It may not feel like summer is around the corner in Chicago, but I’m hopeful that warmer days are on the way.
While we wait for summer to get here, why not get ready for those hot weekends spent at the beach by choosing the perfect bathing suit.
Don’t be the mom that swims with shorts and a tank top. The perfect swimsuit awaits.
The one piece
Most women gravitate towards one piece swimsuits for a number of reasons. For one they are very comfortable and are great for camouflaging our post baby weight. When shopping for your next one piece, opt for one with some details, a zipper, a gold belt or a fun print.
The high waist bikini bottom
The high waist bikinis bottoms have made a major comeback. The modest swimsuit is universally flattering and comes in a variety of style. The best part? Many of them are made of slimming materials which enable you to look sexy without the extra work.
Don’t want to wear the one piece but aren’t quite ready for a bikini? The tankini is a great alternative. The top is long enough to cover your midriff and the low cut bikini bottom takes care of the rest.
Whatever your preference in swimwear the key to wearing them effortlessly is to wear them with confidence.
