5 Tips to Help Moms Wear a Bikini with Confidence


Summer is fast approaching, which means that it’s almost time for women of all ages, shapes, and sizes to face the yearly daunting challenge of wearing a bikini. Although some might not find this much of an issue, moms in particular can face a lot of insecurity and self-doubt when getting into an itty-bitty bikini.

So if you’re a mom looking to build confidence going into the summer and its promise of beach trips and swimming adventures, read on for our top tips to wearing a bikini with confidence!


Invest in a good bikini

Take the time to shop around for the right swimwear for you. Buying a good set you feel comfortable in and shows off your best assets can go a long way in boosting your confidence. Hollywood Life suggests staying away from swimsuits in too-large sizes, as these can stretch when wet and look very unflattering. Instead, try and buy swimwear that may feel a little snug at first but will fit you perfectly after a few uses.


Improve your posture

Next, be sure to practice standing up straight and tall. No matter how fit you are, Fashion columnist Sia Cooper shares that bad posture can make you look shorter, thicker, and a lot less stellar than you can be. Moreover, simply making an effort to carry yourself well can make you feel even more confident about your bikini body.


Get a great cover-up

If you need a little help building confidence during your beach trip, a cover-up might be a great option before going into the water. In a feature on beach cover-ups here on Thalassa Boom, we explained how different types of this classic resort wear essential can make you feel extra glamorous during a beach-side stroll, while also protecting you from sun rays if it gets too hot.


Smile and have fun!

It may sound cliché to say that a smile is a woman’s best accessory, but it is still true. It’s the first thing people notice, and can definitely boost your mood and help you feel great in your bikini. Take it from Good Morning America’s Lara Spencer who looked absolutely stunning in her beach trip late last year, partly because of her toned physique, but more importantly, because of the smile on her face and the confidence she exudes. This shows that when you’re having fun and enjoying your time in the sun, you’d be less inclined to worry over your body. This can really draw more people to your personality and help you shine.


Know that everyone feels the same way

Lastly, if you’re still feeling self-conscious about your body, it’s a good idea to remind yourself that many people feel the same. The next time you’re at a beach or by the pool, Momtastic’s Rebecca Senyard recommends taking a quick look around you to see how other people of all shapes and sizes are having fun. Remember that you are certainly not alone in your struggle for body confidence and acceptance, and that while no one is ever perfect, everybody can certainly rock their body in a bikini!

In truth, stretch marks, leftover baby weight, and c-section marks are just battle scars from the extremely onerous but altogether fulfilling and necessary process of creating life. Remember that every body is a bikini body, and that all the joys of summer are yours for the taking.
