I love the summer and I love swimming, but this is a recent phenomenon for me. After two C-sections and  breastfeeding, I was very self-conscious about my body and hated to let anybody see me in a swimsuit.

Hiding wasn't that hard when I lived in NYC, then we moved to South Florida. We live 15 minutes from the ocean and have a house with a swimming pool. It was impossible not to wear a swimming swimsuit, so I decided to apply what I knew about fashion to my swimwear. To my surprise, I found ways to minimize things I am conscious about!

Based on my research, I discovered flattering swimsuits that hide and veer an onlooker's eyes away from bulging tummies and other commom post-pregnancy problems.

 Take a look to the slideshow and enjoy the summer!

Bare a little tummy

This gorgeous grey two- piece helps with a less than flat belly and the top works with all types of breasts. What I love most about it, though, is how the color goes with any kind of accessory. For a trendy look, you can combine it with a woody chunky bangle for a tribal look, or something neon.
