Hello all! I don't know if this is the right forum, but it certainly seemed like a start.
I'm looking for a swimsuit for my mama body. I have a two year old and should have lost the baby weight by now I suppose, but I'm still 20 lbs higher than I was pre-pregnancy. I'm working on the weight loss still, but I want a new swimsuit now. Beyond that even, I know there are certain parts of my body that won't change no matter how much I work out (my ribs and hips definitely increased in size when I was pregnant).
I tried on a two piece at Target the other day, but just wasn't happy with the result. I don't really have any stretch marks (well I have some on my calves that you can't really see now), but I still felt flabby all over. I love this swimsuit: http://www.amazon.com/Shirred-Control-Swimsuit-Misses-DAHLIA/dp/B003O35SN4/ref=sr_1_4?s=apparel&qlEnable=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1300839576&sr=1-4&searchContext=B004HTUC1W,B00013MY3C,B0034KQQOM,B003O35SN4,B004D883UO,B003YUES2Y,B0030A765Y,B000YLY9YI,B003E7EVJ2,B000YIWZ56,B0032ECUMC,B004B76JDU,B004D815RM,B003SYX3B8,B003CPK0M8,B004JFO6GQ,B003W3UFVQ,B003TW5998,B004P9G6G4,B004CR50ZW,B0044Q6INY,B001SB3VJ2,B003SZ0T6E,B002BCMK6M but it's super expensive. Is it even worth it to get one of these ones that supposedly holds you in? I've tried those body slimmer things that go under your clothes and they make me look great, but they're kind of a pain. Are the swimsuits the same way? Maybe there's another brand of swimsuits that look good on mamas that don't cost $70?
