Swimsuits just don’t support boobs! I wear a bikini and a tankini to support the girls, even if it does mean that feeding is a big faff.
Stay clear of whites and pastel colours as they really show the stains of chocolate ice cream (a must have when you’re on the beach) and the really thick factor 50+ suncream that you re-apply a hundred times to your little ones.
Bold colours take people’s eyes away from the parts of your body that you don’t want them to concentrate on, and make sure a bikini fits well because children like to grab them and pull them down and you don’t want to flash everyone on the beach or by the pool!
Wearing a bikini at any age is a brave move, the display of tummy and midriff makes most females feel vulnerable and requires almost constant concentration to remember the mantra of ‘chest out; stomach in’ as you casually stroll down the beach or by the pool. Once you’ve had children however, the elasticity of tummy skin disappears overnight and the ‘sucking in’ requires almost superhuman effort. When my daughters were young, I hid my mummy tummy in a swimsuit and would buy them cute bikinis to wear even though the top part was entirely superfluous. Bizarrely, now my children are young ladies and becoming increasingly independent I have the time to workout and feel confident wearing a bikini (ok a bikini and a sarong) and my daughters,who feel the pressure of social media and Photoshop, prefer their swimsuits.
