While shopping for swimsuits has likely never been a favorite pastime of yours, finding something to suit your life as a mom has probably made it even harder (just me?) Most moms want something they can move around in, feel cute in, and most of all, not be exposed should a child see an opportunity to grab hold of said suit.
Below is a compilation of mom-approved swimsuits for moms that accomplish all those goals, from affordable to luxury. Also, if you’re pregnant and looking for a good maternity bathing suit, scroll to the bottom!

CupShe (bikinis start as low as $19.99; one-piece suits start at $13.99) :: You can’t beat the price of CupShe and most mamas report pretty good quality, too. If you’re looking for matching mother/daughter suits, this is the spot. There’s a variety of coverage options, colors, and styles on CupShe. (CupShe also is sold on Amazon).
Amazon (prices vary) :: Being the behemoth retailer that it is, Amazon has an overwhelming number of suits to choose from. A mom in her 50s recommends the Tempt Me Tankini Top. I personally have worn this high-waisted two piece for the last two summers and get compliments on it all the time.

Kona Sol for Target (starts at $20/piece) :: I would be remiss not to include Target on this list. One mom, who prefers more coverage, said the Kona Sol line has great pieces, including a skirt bottom, boy shorts, and longline bikini top. As with Amazon, the world is your oyster at Target.
Kortni Jean mix and match bathing suits ($49/piece) :: If modesty is your top priority, look no further than Kortni Jean. There’s a variety of cute prints and colors, and if you’re looking for matching family suits, Kortni Jean has them.
Freya Lingerie (starts at $60/piece) :: These suits are perfect for full-busted women, going up to a K cup. They aren’t sold directly on the Freya website, so you’ll need to find a stockist (there’s one in Southlake and several in Dallas County).
LainSnow two piece ($60/piece) :: LainSnow is a woman/mama-owned small business with super cute and comfortable bathing suits. The suits come in a variety of colors and prints, and you can match with the whole family. The bottoms are on the cheekier side but not in a way that feels inappropriate (at least in my opinion!)
Left on Friday mix and match two-piece bathing suits ($85/piece) :: While these suits are more of an investment, there are tons of colors and styles to choose from. One mom said they make her feel “covered and secure” while being yanked in the water by her kiddos.
LainSnow one piece ($88) :: I personally have this swimsuit and love it. Like the above-mentioned LainSnow bikini, the one piece is on the cheekier side but the high cut leg opening is really flattering.
More than $90
Andie Swim (one piece suits start at $98) :: These are definitely luxury swimsuits but Andie Swim has a good selection of timeless silhouettes and colors that will withstand ever-changing fashion trends. They even have a “mom-approved” filter option on their site.

Left on Friday one piece ($170) :: Again, another luxury option, but well worth the investment for these classic silhouettes and color choices.
CupShe and Isabel Maternity by Ingrid & Isabel (sold on Target.com) :: There were more options for CupShe maternity bathing suits on the Target website than on CupShe’s (go figure), but there’s still a pretty small collection compared to other sites. However, options are cute and stylish, and most cost about $35-$40.
Motherhood Maternity (start at $50 for a one-piece; $30/piece) :: A small albeit mighty collection of swimsuits for the expectant mom. There are cute colors and styles on the Motherhood Maternity website, including skirted bottoms and plus size options.
Pink Blush Maternity (start at $56 for a one-piece; $49 for a bikini) :: Pink Blush has become one of the most popular maternity brands out there and for good reason: they have cute and on trend clothes. The swim line is mostly one pieces but there are a few bikini options.
Seraphine (start at $59 for a one-piece; $39/bikini bottom) :: Seraphine is a boutique maternity clothing company with a small selection of maternity swimwear. Even though their selection isn’t large, it’s not to be overlooked: there are some very cute and flattering styles.
Whether you’re hitting up the local pool or waterpark, heading to the lake, or the ocean, you’re bound to find something you like!
