One of the top questions I get asked about with swimsuits when I recommend them  is —

“yeah — but can you ‘mom’ in it?”

Well, my fine friends — I have found a line of swimsuits that you can absolutely MOM in. And if you aren’t a mom but your interest is piqued, what I mean by ‘mommin’ is that you can move in this swimsuit without something important spilling out, you can bend and the suit will bend WITH you, and there is ample booty coverage that doesn’t budge. This particular swimsuit doesn’t have tummy control, but it’s extremely smoothing and breathable. I actually like that there isn’t a compression or tightness around my middle, it was so comfortable while being flattering and still fitted.

This brand is called Sea Level and I just found it at Nordstrom. I found it to fit well and true to size for me and my swimsuit size. I am usually an 8 if it fits TTS and a 10 if it runs small. I am in the US 8 / AU 12 size here. Currently my chest is having a moment and these sisters are living their best lives, so as a 36D I am giving a lot of cleavage here. But I will say that everything was secure. Bouncy but secure — and at this point in my life I will gladly take bouncy support. If you want more coverage I’ve linked some other options below!

I also rounded up a few of my favorite coverups from Nordstrom, too! Might as well grab a friend for your swimsuit 🙂

Suggested Cover Ups

As for Gemma, we like to put her in rash guards when we can at the beach just because the UV rays are so strong. This one from Boden Kids is precious — we love a rainbow moment. She wears the 5/6 size and it fits TTS. (Gemma is tall for her age so we are in mainly 6s now.) You can find her swimsuit here or more options from Nordstrom below!


Thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post! As always, THANK YOU dear reader for supporting the brands that support this blog. xo, kendi
