Bless’er Heart Weekends: Mom Swimsuits & Summer Faves

Um… somehow it’s been 4 months since the last Bless’er Heart Weekends post. This pesky virus has totally thrown these out of whack (among like a million other things).

But yesterday, I did something way out of my comfort zone and tried on swimsuits… and shared them on camera… to 84,000 people on Instagram… after gaining 15-20 pounds of quarantine weight.  😉 In the grand scheme of things, if my biggest problem is gaining a few pounds, I’ll consider myself blessed.

Well, weight gain and toddler tantrums, but I digress.

Really though, I have a feeling many of us are in the same boat.

I legitimately bought roughly 25 swimsuits and tried them all on and nailed down several that I absolutely love! All for the sake of “mom bod” research. These passed the test for “toddler tugging”, “pooch concealing”, and “tush covering”. So I thought I’d share in case it helps.

Cheers to the weekend!

  1. Love all. Hats of to you for being able to choose. It would be hard for me to do so. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Can’t thank you enough for this post! Was dreading buying a new bathing suit(weight gain) i bought a bunch of your choices from Target and to my surprise they all fit and look good

  3. I watched your stories the other day and have enjoyed this post and just want to say Thank You! I’ve put on a few lbs during quarantine also and not feeling super comfortable in my bathing suit, it just helps to remember I’m not the only one! You should be proud of yourself. ❤

  4. Love your comment, Deb! Similar here except I’ve got the little old lady scrawny fanny (probably a size small) and g-normous breast (probably size gorilla) with a 36 band size. Try finding a suit for that combo. LOL And I’m a good 40 years past the two-piece thing. And to think Lauren wants to talk about her “mom body”. How much cuter could she be?!?

  5. I am well past mom swimsuit status and into old lady status – similar issues with the added bonus of saggy skin 🙁 – but I still appreciate you taking this on for ‘the team’.
