Motherhood definitely changes our bodies and can make us feel more self-conscious yet strangely empowered at the same time. Anyone else feel the same?!
Your boobs get flatter and/or droopier. I could basically give left and right directions with mine at this point. Suddenly your hips grow wider and some body parts, perfectly referred by Bridget Jones as “wobbly bits”, turn squishier.
This is why I really wanted to design something for “real” bodies and the Olivia + Ocean team embodies that sentiment perfectly.
Wobbly bits or not, I’ve actually been strutting this mom bod with pride! Don’t get me wrong, it took some time to get to that point.
A lot of the confidence boosts have been cheers and positive vibes from other women. We’re all shapes and sizes, so thank you for sharing and spreading the body positivity love!
Plus, it also helps that Olivia + Ocean thoughtfully designs cuts and selects fabrics that provide the support you want, in all the right places. Why wasn’t a pretty nursing swimsuit when we had Gwen?!?
That being said, it’s refreshing to finally see all your photos of our Mommy and Me swimsuits on real moms and even non-moms. Thank you to all you beautiful ladies, moms and daughters for sharing your looks.
Real Moms in Our Mommy & Me Swimsuits
My sweet friend Lexy has possibly the sweetest and smartest girls I know! Vita is wearing her Beverly color block kids bikini, Mara is wearing the Laguna confetti one piece, and Lexy is wearing the Mom bod color block one piece.
