Swimsuit Decisions!

March 13th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Does everyone slave over swimsuit choices every year or is that just me? Since having babies, my size has changed pretty regularly for the last five years and my opinions of suits change also. I go from wanting to wear a full body swim dress to a skimpy padded sports bra & shorts looking combo?!?! For us athletic moms we seem to have certain body characteristics {big butts, muscular quads, flat chest} that makes buying a suit challenging at the very least.

If I am going to be running, jumping, skipping, playing volleyball or doing a crossfit workout on the beach, then, I absolutely would wear a NAYAD suit. These suits are completely customizable and perfect for any outdoor/swim workout. In fact these suits can go from workout to playout incredibly easily.

But, if I am going to be lounging around a resort hotel, then, I’d like a slightly different style suit. One that is a little less sporty, but, still have it fit perfectly and cover all areas wanting to be hidden, haha. Anybody have any thoughts on the perfect suit for athletes in this situation? Usually, I resort to Athleta or Title Nine or Sport Chalet and pick out the classiest looking suit I can find?

Anybody have any other brands you can recommend?

    oh my gosh does bathing suit shopping cause a dilemma! i have the hardest time finding the right fit that covers up what i want covered and doesn’t look so mom like. i wear the skirted kind but i’m small and would love to find something sporty that i can move around in comfortably! thanks for the one brand of suits. i’ll have to check them out.
