I truly hope you found this post on fashionable postpartum swimwear for new moms helpful. As women, we can be extremely hard on ourselves. It’s so easy to talk about all the imperfections our bodies have to offer instead of all the great things our body has done for us.
I mean, a woman’s body is incredible! We have superhuman powers. You know we deliver babies and nourish them, too. We need to embrace it, easier said than done, I know. I struggle too. But our new curves, stretch marks, and cellulite gave us something great.
Show off, mama!
