Best Swimsuits Of 2020 According To Mom

Buying a new swimsuit is something that’s usually high on the shopping list when a vacation is on the horizon. Well, ladies, it ain’t right now…but that bb pool and sprinkler pad are looking really appealing after a long winter spent inside. And just because we’re swimming in our backyard doesn’t mean we want to wear something outdated and out of style.

In-store shopping is not ideal this year, so we’re shopping for swimsuits online exclusively. Leaving many of us wondering – “Where can I even buy cute bathing suits online?”

There are great options— many with hassle-free returns or exchanges, so you can figure out style and size preference at home. Anyone who has ever tried on a bathing suit in the fluorescent lighting of a fitting room with a toddler can appreciate the appeal of trying on a suit from the comfort of your own bedroom. (Send the kids outdoors for a swing break and start the fashion show!)

There are a few key things to think about before shopping online— even just knowing the color palette or style ahead of time can make the whole experience less painful. Also, have a good idea of what size you’ll need (size charts and reviews from other women are our best friends). Consider— get ready for this— something a little out of your normal wheelhouse. Do you really need another black or navy swimsuit? Are you ready for a bold print or maybe even a two-piece? We say YES.

We’ve done the homework and found fun, festive prints, and beautiful solids in one-pieces and bikinis, each guaranteed to give us the coverage we need and be figure-flattering— while still ensuring we can still keep up with whatever our LOs throw at us. All that’s left to do is click “add to cart”.
