From one-piece swimsuits to bikinis and shorts, these were our favorite mom-approved swimsuits for fun in the sun and chasing after kids!

Favorite Swimsuits for Moms

One-Piece Swimsuits

Bleu Rod Beattie Behind the Seams

This was a favorite by more than one mom for it’s cute detailing through the mid-section and great overall coverage. The asymmetrical shape gives a flattering look to many body types, and there is good coverage in the back with no ties to mess with.



Carve Designs Dahlia

This one was a favorite thanks to the fun prints and intricate back. The size is also “customizable” because you can adjust the tie on the back to fit your body best. There are a variety of designs to choose from to fit your skin tone best!


Tribal Wrap-Front One-Piece

The neckline on this swimsuit is so flattering and it has the ruching detailing around the mid-section. And the black color can work with virtually any skin tone! This is a great standard swimsuit that you can wear for anything – swimming lessons with your kids, a lake day, or going to the pool with girlfriends. If black isn’t your color, there is a floral option as well.

Like this style, but want to add color and texture? We also loved the La Blanca Ruffle Surplice One-Piece, which comes in black, blue, pink, and “cinnamon.” And the Becca Color Play Plunge One-Piece added an element of flirtiness for those parent-only trips.



Tribal Textured One-Piece

This suit was also a favorite by more than one mom. The fabric was super soft and comfortable. It covered everywhere, yet still looked stylish and would compliment any body shape. This would paired well with a white cover-up to pull a whole “summer” look together.



La Blanca Island Goddess Cutout One-Shoulder One-Piece

If you are looking for a pop of color, this mom-approved swimsuit is for you! The one-shoulder style accentuates the shoulders and upper body, and the side cutouts show a little skin, but not too much. And the side tie can be adjusted so it doesn’t squeeze *too* tight. 


Carmen Marc Valvo Deep Plunge Ruched One-Piece

Going on an adult-only vacation and want something a bit more daring? This print makes for a very tropical feel, and also has a smooth-shaping liner for light tummy control and adjustable sliding coverage to suit your preferences. The ruching of the fabric also flatters the mid-section. This one screams tropical vacation!



Carve Designs Sanitas Reversible Bikini Top with Carve Designs St. Barth Reversible Bikini Bottoms

With so many fun designs to choose from AND being reversible, this top can serve as two suits in one! It’s sports-bra like fit allows for full coverage, which is perfect when chasing littles around the pool or beach. 

Mix and match the bottoms for the perfect match (and bonus, they are also reversible!). We love the extra tummy coverage and thicker band.


PrAna Tulum Bikini Top with PrAna Tulum Bikini Bottoms

This sporty two-piece allows for enough coverage (especially for medium to smaller chests) and the bright colors make it feel fun and summery. The adjustable back-tie closure allows you to tighten as much as needed for comfort. 

The matching bottoms are mid-rise with a super soft waistband. Perfect for those going for a sporty look!


24th & Ocean Color Block High Neck Bikini

Another top favorite by our moms, this two-piece swimsuit is super flattering while still providing coverage and comfort. The top is modest and supportive, while the matching high-waist bottoms are comfortable and flattering, particularly for pear-shaped figures.


Carve Designs Sandhaven Bikini Top with Matching Bottoms

This fun, light pink top provides good coverage with a sporty-yet cute feel. The adjustable straps at the top of the shoulders adds accent and functionality. It pairs well with both high-waisted bottoms or regular bikini bottoms.




Janela Bay Scoopneck Ladder Back Tankini Top with Janela Bay Original High-Waist Bikini Bottom

We loved that this mom-approved swimsuit styled like a one-piece, but has the versatility of a two-piece! It’s sporty yet cute, with no ties or loose-fitting spots like other tankinis have. It comes in many different colors if floral isn’t your thing!

We paired this tankini top with a pair of high-waisted bottoms for the one-piece look with flexibility.



Janela Bay Criss Cross Back Tankini Top

We loved that this two piece has some fun flair plus a super cute back. The high waisted bottoms and scoop neck gave great coverage while still looked fashionable. The little ruffle detail along the bottom of swim top adds a fun dimension and texture.




Beach House Sport Synergy Zip Front Racerback Bikini Top with Jantzen Zipper Skort

This top and skort is perfect for an active swim day! It cuts at a great spot on the leg and midriff and looks super flattering. Bonus, it’s length means no need for bikini line shaving! It comes in multiple colors and can be purchased individually so you can pair it with any top you’d like or one you already own. This would be a great go-to paddle board or kayaking suit.



Carve Designs Tofino Bikini Top with Carve Designs Zelda Bottoms

For those of you searching for a suit to run around and play with the kids in, this mom-approved swimsuit would be the way to go. The bottoms are basically shorts, and I also like the versatility of the stripes and “basic” colors because it would pair well with a different top as well.


Janela Bay Bardot Tankini Top with Beach House Emma Pull On Skort

Our team loved this combo because it gave the “confidence of full coverage without feeling like you’re sacrificing style.” Both this tankini and the skort come in a variety of colors and styles, so you’ll be sure to find one that’s a great fit for you.
