If you look at my closet over the past year and a half since we have had Grace, you could piece together a sort of timeline of all of the adventures we have gone on. I haven’t wanted to buy many new clothes since I have stilllllll not lost a lot of my pregnancy weight, but certain special occasions have required a new special outfit. The resulting closet is kind of disjointed but sweet- the funky outfits I bought for our dear friends wedding in Santa Fe, the plaid I wore to Scotland, the dress I got for Gracie’s first birthday.
Then on this last beach vacation I found myself too small for most of my pregnancy/post pregnancy beach wear, but still unable to fit into my pre-Gracie items. When I have had to buy a new ensemble to accommodate this in-between body, I have tried to buy pieces that would work for next time I am pregnant. Maternity wear is the worst, so if I am going to buy a bigger size than normal I want to be able to wear it next time around.
And y’all…I totally found it.
They have two pieces but that isn’t a part of my reality anymore, so I am not going to even bother with that. But if you are so inclined, feel free to check that out. But let me explain to you the wonder of these suits.
First of all, the designer started in lingerie so they are brilliantly constructed.
AND they are legitimately cute one pieces. Which is not easy to find.
Third, that little flutter detail? Is removable and can be added to any of the suits around your waist for a peplum look, or at the top for a frill. It’s like 3 swimsuits in 1. And the less swimsuits I have to try on, the better.
My only complaint is that the cup size on the style in the yellow suit is crazy small, even in a large.
So if you are bustin’ out, I would stick to these styles.
They also have these beautiful coordinating coverups that are so comfortable and forgiving,
The would look just as cute now as they would rockin’ a bump.
It is definitely a lot more expensive than I would normally spend on maternity wear or clothes for this in between stage, but I think because of their fit I could wear them from my normal weight to super pregnant and back. They feel super high quality, and the colors and prints are fresh to death.
Plus they are sexy and fun and not actually maternity- and you need a few items in your closet that don’t feel like a depressing compromise. 9 months, or 2 years in my case, is a long time to not wear things you love.
So there you are, cute bathing suits that work for the pregnant and post-baby body- and all you foxes out there too, obviously.
What say you?
Any other great lines out there I should know about?
