"Well Behaved Women..."

I've been searching Amazon for a swimsuit that is flattering and covers my mom bits. I read a TON of reviews and eventually settled on this retro cutey.

The day I got it I, of course, tried it on and modeled for my husband. Since I had the baby I've been really self-conscious about my looks and showing off for him, but even before the baby I had never gotten the reaction that I got this time. It was just after nap time and we bundled our little miss into her high chair and retired to the bedroom for some "Mommy and Daddy" time. I told him later that it was the most confidence-boosting reaction in the entire world and I'm seriously in love with this swimsuit

There are some reviews about it being poorly made, but I tell you what. It's totally worth the price. I feel like Marilyn Monroe in this swimsuit and I will never have issues going to the pool again. It covers and camouflages those few extra pounds around my middle and covers my chest. The built-in-bra has underwire and AMAZING padding that keeps everyone from knowing when I'm cold. I haven't had any issues with the seams coming undone and I swam for three days in the ocean.

 All of that being said, you do have to follow the sizing guide. I'm normally somewhere between a 10 and a 12 and I had to get a 2X. Eeps! Don't let it scare you, though. It's an amazing swimsuit
