"I got a mom suit," my sister reported, resigned to the fact that her bikini days have passed, or least put indefinitely on hold. She was talking about her new summer bathing suit.
We can kid ourselves into thinking that it's "retro", or that we're rocking the '50's pinup style...
It's still a mom suit.
There comes a time when all moms realize that for one reason or another, the mom suit is necessary.
Most common reasons for having the epiphany:
1. The bod calls for it. The stomach is in no way ready to have the light of day cast upon it. How horrifying it would be if a saggy boob might slip its way into the sun.
2. Your child may cause you to be arrested for indecent exposure. No matter the age, young children seem compelled to pull at the straps, or are just curious to see what's in those padded support cups.
Don't feel that you need to run to the granny section right away, there are some cute options out there.
