Summer is nearly here, and that means — ready or not — swimsuit season is almost upon us. Do you have a swimsuit you love?
I never thought I would EVER say this, but I love the swimsuits I got a few months ago (for a pre-shutdown getaway).
I’ve never been a fan of swimsuit shopping, but after three babies — two of which left me with considerable diastasis recti (that I’ve significantly improved but not quite eliminated) — finding a flattering one is like ugggghhh.
Tummy-baring two-pieces are a definite no for me, but most one-pieces highlight the tummy bulge. And flowy muu-muu types are not my cup of tea. (Plus, all that loose fabric simply floats to the surface once in the water…)
What’s a relatively young(-ish) momma who wants to be covered but still look cute to do??
After doing some research and trying out a few different styles, I finally found a couple of different styles that fit the bill.
I love how both of these suits cover and camouflage without looking like a granny suit. (No offense to all you grannies out there.) And I LOVE how good they both make me feel. I didn’t even think that was possible in a swimsuit!
If you have diastasis recti — or are simply looking for a “mom-friendly” suit that covers in style — here are a couple of diastasis recti-friendly swimsuits that worked for me!
My Favorite Swimsuits for Diastasis Recti
Swimsuit #1 — Tankini Two-Piece
I LOVE how the cinched style of this tankini loosely covers the tummy without being flowy. This was exactly what I was looking for. And it’s SO STINKIN’ CUTE!
It’s the perfect swuimsuit for diastasis recti. (P.S. It would also be good for early pregnancy!)
I was a little worried that with my extra-short torso, the tankini part might not fit correctly, but it’s fine.
A word of warning, however — the bottoms that come with it are definitely not full coverage, so unless I’m with my own family at home, I will probably wear them with something else (I have a swim skirt like this one that I love).
Also, depending on how *ahem* blessed you are up top, you might want to size up.
Swimsuit #2 — Polka Dot One-Piece
I’m a big fan of polka dots, so I was immediately drawn to this one. And it’s just as cute (if not cuter!) on. The ruffles camouflage my residual diastasis bump perfectly.
Cute + flattering? Yes, please!
As with the tankini, the only drawback is that the bottoms are not as “full coverage” as I had hoped. With a bottom that’s a little more well-supplied than the top ;), I run into that problem all the time.
I did, however, still feel comfortable enough to wear it around other people. But if that’s a big concern for you, you may want to size up.
