Heading to Florida for the Holidays? The Best Swimsuits for Every Body Shape

Cute suits for every type of mom bod

There are few things more horrifying to many woman than shopping for a new swimsuit. The fluorescent lighting, the rear view dimples, the realization that, yes, you ate your way through winter and most of early spring. Of course, I realize I’m not speaking for everyone (in fact, if you are one of those SAHMs who practices daily double workouts you can skip right ahead; all of these suits will look great on you). For the rest of us, I offer the following advice: Do not wait until the last minute to look for a suit and—whatever you do—do not journey to a department store for this purchase. Now that most online shops offer free shipping and returns, there is absolutely no reason to subject yourself to this kind of humiliation. Instead, simply click through the collection we’ve pulled together below. Once you’ve found a suit you like, consider buying it in 2-3 sizes (your normal size, plus one up and one down) then just return whatever doesn’t work. There is a suit below for every type of woman—and every type of bod—so enjoy the scroll.
