The Best One Pieces, Tested and Approved

After I shared on Instagram Stories that Justin and I are headed off on a destination unknown 5 year anniversary trip this Spring, I received a ton of messages asking for my fave swim and cover up options. Ask and you shall receive, friends!

When it comes to swim wear, I look for major chest support for my DDD ladies, rouching around the tummy for a slimming effect and full tush coverage. I have really good luck with the swim brand La Blanca, which I usually snag on Amazon, but have spotted at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack and at TJ Maxx, so always keep an eye out. I also always find a huge selection of chic black one pieces at Target - my all time fave suit was an off-the-rack, no-try-on win I picked up on a formula run last year. I always wear a size Large in Target swim, and a 10 or 12 in La Blanca. 

For cover ups, I love light weight, easy to pack options. Bonus points if the cover up can transition from the pool to grabbing drinks, mostly so that I don't feel super exposed when I'm not next to the water. I've also been a fan of slapping on my denim shorts with an oversized button down (I size up one size) to keep the sun off of my arms and chest. 

All of these pics are from our Beach trip last year, when I was just 5 weeks postpartum, so you can absolutely be certain that boob and tummy support is being put to the test. I own or have tried on all of the swim options I've listed below - and I've rounded up my go-to cover options as well!

  1. HOTT mama!! I definitely need to try some of these out before summer!

  2. I ordered that Papaya black one piece from Amazon - a total steal! I can't wait for it to arrive!

  3. ugh I wish that Target one would stay up for me! How do you get the strapless one's to work?? Also, as a DDD, halters KILL my neck!

    1. So, I look for strapless suits that have a bit of boning in the top - that always helps! I also carry the strap that the suit comes with around with me and if I'm running after the kids, I hook it on to keep the girls in place!
