As it’s Mother’s Day this Sunday I thought I would do a piece for us mama’s, dedicated to suits that withstand all the beach and poolside summer activities we enjoy with our kids!
Ones which stay in place when running, jumping, being tugged at and breast-feeding and still accommodating the look of put-together-mummy-chic.
Obviously a one-piece is your safest bet but as a mother and as any woman you don’t want to be limited to one category, so I’ll be delivering you the best ‘stay-put’ versions in all the styles.
PILY Q Juliet Halter Bikini Top and Banded Teeny bottom, in midnight blue tones with pretty pink and soft blue peony print is chic and supportive. It’s a perfect multitasking top with removable bust padding, adjustable shoulder straps for a perfect fit while running around after the little ones. This top can be tucked under into a bandeau for a sun bathing option; simply un-hook the back straps, pull them forward and roll them under into the bust area – also making this a great breast-feeding swimsuit option.
EURVIN Padang Padang one-piece, is a brand I’ve tried and tested, successfully. Available in black, navy (pictured) and khaki, is as sporty (and as my husband described) as it is sexy! With high leg cut and perfect bottom coverage that lifts while showing just enough peach. The high neck and criss-cross back is sporty and supportive, a truly perfect suit if you are looking for one that you can run around in while still looking hot! Revitalising the old “mum suit” to a new level.
As many swimsuits as I own this one makes it into my staple swimsuit wardrobe.
Wanting some arm coverage, then VITAMIN A Cannes Cropped Riviera Stripe Rashguard and Neutra Hipster Full bottom give you extra protection whilst out in the sun. It’s perfect for long days at the beach where your shoulders and upper back are most vulnerable to sun exposure while building those sand castles and hunting for sea-shells and crabs. It’s got definite stay-put style, leaving you carefree to have as much fun as your kids. Go for matching stripe top and bottom or mix it up with block colour bottom options in Navy or Black. If a full cut is not your thing, then VITAMIN A have you covered with an extensive range of California or Brazilian cut bottoms to pair with this top.
To finish I’d like to include a bandeau style. While this may be the most risky style to grabby little hands, the surf and running, there is one style I have worn countless times, which has remained intact and kept me tan-line free – the DESPI CORAZON BIKINI (shown in Lilac).
This top is especially amazing for women who feel their breasts have lost fullness after having children. The built-in molding is the best I have come across for giving great shape. This bikini has glamour in its jewel tones and beautiful center gem detail, accentuating a beautifully shaped bust-line. These bikinis are well constructed for comfort and support, soft ties at back allowing you to tie tightly for stay-put support without digging in. Matching bottom options in full or cheeky coverage. For any woman before or after babies it so important for us to have our glamour moments, and if you’re in a bikini, then this is it.
So there you have it! A great range of styles covered to help keep you covered from little hands and nip slip disasters! I wish us all a beautiful, heart warming and grateful Mothers Day, with lots of love, cuddles and home-made goodness to fill our shelves and hearts.
