Brace yourselves, bathing suit season is coming. Ladies, it’s time to start packing up our bulky sweaters and thinking about hitting the beach. We at Skinny Mom know that swimsuit shopping is right up there with getting a root canal, so we’re doing our best to make it less painful for you. We went through hundreds of bathing suits and found the suits that are the most flattering for various body types and the styles to best fit whatever your personal style is.  We can’t promise you’ll love swimsuit shopping this year, but we can make it a little easier.

Show A Little Skin

A bikini isn’t the only option for showing some extra skin at the beach or by the pool. There are multiple one-piece options for unexpected sexiness. Whether it’s cutouts, peek-a-boo designs, or crochet patterns, these suits are the perfect combination of coverage and flirtatious.
