Mamas, this one is for you. I’m sharing this from a place of such relief and joy to FINALLY find a swimsuit that offers the coverage I need, support I need, style I want, and flexibility to run after kiddos. Do I wish I was wearing an itsy bitsy string bikini lounging poolside? Kinda, but not only is that not my style, I have TWO BOYS and they like to run and crash in waves and ride the big slide and climb the aqua walls. This mama (me) has to be able to move and stay covered and supported the whole time.
OK that was a big intro, but I’m serious. I’ve been wearing the same two suits for the last few years – including one THROUGH pregnancies, so it was horribly stretched out and pilled up, but I literally couldn’t find anything better…until…I happened upon Athleta’s swim collection. I was at the pool with a mama friend and she had the cutest, sportiest suit on, and I literally went to Athleta that afternoon. Their online collection is even better, AND – – – it’s all on crazy sale right now!!!
There are lots of adorable styles and prints, but the suit I love is this Tara Halter Tankini top with a simple bottom. I bought it in the tie-dye print with a solid navy bottom. I love it SO much, that I’ve gone back and also purchased the Tara Halter Tankini in solid black, too. The Tara Halter also comes in a bikini top and swim dress.
The best part about their swimwear is that it is bra sized. I’m not even on top and bottom, most aren’t, and typically for me to cover my top I need to purchase a L or even XL which doesn’t fit the rest of my body. Until NOW. I literally can’t explain enough how wonderful it is to have a CUTE, well fitting swimsuit! You can tie the Tara Halter top as tight as you need to for the, ahem, lift, you need, and the structure of the cups stays where it needs to. I like a tankini for belly coverage, although I just added a bikini top to my online cart…I’ll let you know how that goes.
That’s all for now. It’s on major sale and the styles are selling out so get to it!
