In about a month, most non-private or residential pools will be open for business. The kids will probably be hounding you to go swimming everyday and you’ll be spending a lot of time in the sun. Which means that it’s probably time to invest in a fun new swimsuit. Most “certified mom suits” are…a little frumpy to say the least. While you may not wear the same types of suit you wore at twenty, that doesn’t mean you aren’t allowed to look good while you enjoy a little fun in the sun.
1. Hurry Up and Wade High Waisted Swimsuit
I love an old fashioned bikini. There’s something so inherently sweet and stylish about vintage swimsuits. While this suit isn’t covered in polka dots, the high waisted bottoms and a haltered bikini top give tons of comfort to those who aren’t too keen on showing tons of midriff. The sweet style of this bikini is fun, flirty, and perfect for afternoons spent by the pool.
Buy this swimsuit and tons of other vintage-style clothes at ModCloth.
2. Lira Clothing Patterned One Piece Swimsuit
One piece swimsuits can be boring. Often times, they come in solid colors and are made out of frumpy materials. This suit shows that one piece swimsuits can still be exciting! The half patterned, half slight sheer of this swimsuit is super fun, while the plunging neckline is just flirty enough.
Find this swimsuit as well as a large selection of quality clothing at Nordstrom.
3. Coco Palm Halterneck Tankini Swimsuit
Bravissimo is a company specifically designed to make lingerie, swimwear, and clothing for busty women. While they don’t have a huge selection of swimsuits this year, the items they do have are fun and full of actual support. Which makes them perfect for moms! The one pictured above adds pretty palm trees to a classic tankini style swimsuit, with the flirty halter and the hanging strings, it is the perfect compromise between a simple one piece and a bikini.

4. Anthropologie The One Who Ruffled One Piece Swimsuit
This one piece suit from Anthropologie is another one that takes a classic one piece and makes it a lot more exciting. The black and white design is super striking without being too busy, just as the ruffles along the chest add some serious cuteness.

5. Calm With The Current Vintage Two Piece Swimsuit
Created by top designer Betsey Johnson and sold by ModCloth, this minty polka dot two piece swimsuit is too cute to pass up. In an ode to adorable vintage swimwear, this suit is flirty and feminine. It will look perfect while you’re with your kids at a community pool or while you’re enjoying a sunset stroll on the beach.

6. Strapless Ruffle One Piece Swimsuit
This fun swimsuit seriously has it all. No straps, adorable ruffles, and side cut-outs. Even with all of this going on, it manages to be exciting without being too busy or distracting. A winning combination if you ask me!

7. Pineapple Swimsuit Dress
I know, I know. Forever 21 is usually designated to quirky teenagers and college kids but they have plenty of items that are perfect for moms.
