Welcome to the mom club! If you are a new mom navigating the raw challenges of motherhood, the last thing you want to worry about is an ill-fitting, uncomfortable bathing suit when you’re taking that tiny human out on their first beach trip.

Let’s face it: our postpartum bodies are just different than they used to be before kids, and that’s okay. We want to help you find the swimwear that is going to fit you well now and make you feel like the goddess that you are right now. And yes! It is possible. 

What Makes a Great Postpartum Bathing Suit? 

For many people, postpartum clothing shopping can be a challenge. It’s not fun and exciting like shopping for maternity clothes, and there’s an expectation that you should be back to your old clothing size when that’s just not the case for most women. 

At Andie Swim, we take quality and care seriously. When curating the perfect crew of postpartum-friendly swimsuits, here’s what we consider:

Stretchy yet compressive fabric

Moderate to full bottom coverage

Forgiving, flattering cuts

Easy access for breastfeeding

Athletic suits for chasing toddlers

The same Andie sustainability and quality you’re accustomed to

Postpartum-Friendly Swimwear You Should Check Out

We have some fabulous-not-frumpy choices for postpartum-friendly swimwear. One of our top picks for postpartum mamas is our super highwaist bottom

Not only does it provide extra coverage and support for your midsection, but it also smooths and flatters your figure. Pair it with a cute, supportive top like our Valencia, and you’ve got a match made in new mama heaven! Bonus: the ultra-high-waisted design of this swimsuit is amazing for C-section moms. 

If a one-piece bathing suit is more your speed right now, we have a few fantastic options! One of our best sellers, the Malibu, might as well have been designed for new moms. 

The athletic yet fashionable styling is ultra-flattering for all body types. It also comes with a long torso for taller ladies and has the option of a cheeky or full-coverage bottom, depending on what you’re looking for at this stage in your post-pregnancy era. We also love the snap-front neck detail, which allows for easy access for those moms who are breastfeeding. 

Our second pick for a postpartum one-piece is the Laguna. Though almost any of our one-piece bathing suits are a great choice, we like the Laguna because it is downright sexy! And, let’s face it, at least part of you wants to get your groove back. 

The Laguna still offers good coverage with medium bust support and removable cups but features an open back for a little visual interest. Show some skin without feeling self-conscious! 

Now, we aren’t saying you need to cover up, but if you want to, we recommend our Corvo Button Up. It is incredibly versatile due to its button-up style, and its tie waist means that you can adjust and customize your level of coverage. 

No matter what swimwear you choose, just know that Andie Swim has something for everyone. And even more importantly, know you are doing a great job, Mom!
