Mom bod is no joke. Combined with pandemic pounds, swimsuit season can be unforgiving. Go boldly into spring and summer with the perfect bottoms that deliver the right amount of coverage and keep you (confidently) in a two-piece.
The Goldilocks Fit for Moms
A couple of years ago, I discovered mid-rise bikini bottoms from Summersalt and haven’t felt this confident in a two-piece since before two kids. The bottoms hit right underneath the belly button so they allow for perfect coverage of your tummy without creating love handles. High-waisted suits never worked for my body type because they seem to accentuate my midsection while calling even more attention to problem areas. As for the bottom coverage—it’s a sporty cut—slightly cheeky but not full-bottomed either. If there was ever a bottom that screamed “sensible but make it cute,” this is it.
The material is SO comfortable and it dries quickly so you aren’t sitting in damp bottoms. The best part is that after tons of washes and even accidental trips to the dryer, they hold up extremely well. My first pair of black bottoms from two summers ago still look great. According to Summersalt, the signature fabric is eco-friendly and made from 78% recycled polyamide.
Swimsuit Shopping From the Comfort of Home
Right now, there are over 12 different color combinations to choose from, and the Sizing & Fit Guide is extremely accurate. I am a true six and the six fits like a charm. The overall ordering process is super easy and the swimsuit will arrive within a few days. If you aren’t happy, the return shipping is free and easy. I recommend going with a basic black or navy and mixing and matching with a fun top from Summersalt or your own favorite tops.
The bottom is moderately pricey at $45, but there are always promo codes to be found. I always use Capital One Shopping and let the handy browser extension do the work for me. Besides, you do get what you pay for. These swimsuit bottoms won’t wear out after one season, so the investment is worth it.
