The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Meghan King Edmonds just gave birth to twin boys on June 5, and we imagine she's having quite a busy summer with her new babies and 1-year-old Aspen Edmonds. But the mama to three is still getting in some pool time, and she did a public service by finding a very cute selection of flattering swimwear for new moms and roadtesting each one with very honest reviews.
"Finally! For all those asking I did a review of my favorite postpartum swimwear on the blog! And everything is super affordable (most pieces $25 and under!)," Meghan wrote on her Instagram, linking to her blog post rundown of eight suits from chic black one-pieces to ruffled bikinis. We love this striped number from Amazon, but Meghan gave the award of "ultimate mom suit" to a $44 Speedo. "You don’t have to worry about a bikini wax AT ALL, there's ruching in the belly to hide any flab, the black color makes it even more flattering, there’s tons of boob support, and the suit overall feels like it’s just holding you in," she writes.
Meghan's been so open with her followers about her post-birth body, showing her postpartum twin belly and sharing that she's proud of the changes she's gone through to bring her children into the world. She's just as forthcoming in this swimsuit blog post, and she has some great advice to keep it all in perspective: "Relish last minute moments of running to the pool with your kids without worrying about your bikini line or your midsection, life is meant to be lived!"
