It's been a few years since I've been ready for a new swimsuit as I skipped a whole summer of swimming while in my first trimester with Smith and then only worked up the courage to venture out in it twice last summer since I was still carrying around most of my pregnancy weight. When Lime Ricki asked if I was interested in reviewing a swimsuit from their spring collection I decided it was time to go for something flirty and fabulous!
I've made my way down to smaller than my pre-pregnancy weight before Smith and even before Ruby. It felt really good to order a size I haven't worn since 2009. Seriously, guys. It felt even better to not only feel like I looked good in a swimsuit but that it wasn't a boring mom suit.
Some of Lime Ricki's suits are built for smaller bust sizes so I did make sure to choose one that would accommodate for the fact that I'm still nursing. I loved the detail of the cut of the suit as well as the frills near the top and the minor distraction that they provided around my middle. I love the color and the vintage-inspired design as well as the way it keeps things feeling covered and supported in all of the right places.
Ordering swimsuits online sounds a little trickier than trying them on in a store but I do think it's safe to order two sizes, figure out which fits best, and return the other. I did that with my last suit when I ordered them from another online shop and it was so much more convenient than hauling kids to the mall and not finding my size in the suits I liked best anyways.
Online shopping is a mama's best friend sometimes, am I right?
