This is 40, ladies. OK – almost 41! I’m going to be very honest with you here, bikinis are not my friends anymore. They used to be, but they just don’t work for me. I wish I could pull one off, but I just can’t. All I have to say is – 5 kids.
Enough said. I’m constantly on the hunt for the most perfect one piece bathing suits because they just fit me better and I’m most comfortable in them. I found the most amazing red one piece swimsuit at JCPenney and I just need to share it with everyone because it’s perfection. I’m telling you right now, it’s PERFECTION on every level!
Perfect Red One Piece Swimsuit
I’ve always been a lover of the color red, especially when it comes to swimwear. I just think it’s a bold pick for the summer because it’s so vibrant and beautiful. I’ve been looking for a beautiful red one piece swimsuit forever and ever and ever. I’ve searched high and low for one that fits perfect, comfortable to be in and also flatters my figure. I also didn’t want to spend a ton of money on a bathing suit because well, it’s a bathing suit. There’s no need to spend over $200 on a suit, right? I just wear a swimsuit a few months out of the year, so it’s not truly an essential item I wear all the time.
Let me add to the must have list, too. I have 5 kids. I need a suit that it going to stand up to 5 kids all summer. So what’s a mom to do? You find the best and most flattering one piece suit that you possibly can find! I refuse to be the mom that doesn’t go in the water or chase the kids on the beach or do water slides or do all the fun things that moms should be doing with their kids. As much as I love a good beach chair and romance book, I also love a good family trip. I don’t want to be walking up a water slide with my kids and worrying about my suit falling off or down!
Where Did I Find this Red Swimsuit?
While I was away this past weekend on a press trip with Royal Caribbean, I posted photos of everything we were doing. I kept getting so many people online and in person asking me about this red one piece swimsuit. I’m telling you right now – I bought this red bathing suit on a whim while visiting my in-laws during Easter. I saw it, tried it on and said to myself, “Where has this suit been my whole mom life?” It stays in place. It has ruching on the stomach (thank you Liz Claiborne). It fits beautifully and flatters in all the right places.
I went on water slides, FlowRider, the wave pool and swam in the ocean in this red one piece swimsuit! If there was ever a bathing suit test to see what it could do and if it would stay in place, it was this weekend! Impressed by it, YES! It was the perfect little baby to have on this trip! I wanted to find something a little sexy and this swimsuit really fit the bill for me. I loved the little fashionable ruffle on the suit, too. It was so sweet!

Can I just say this, ENHANCES BUST and FLATTENS TUMMY. These are 2 features that I am ALL about! I’m small on top, so anything that will enhance my bust naturally without me doing anything I’m all over. The best part for me is that it flattens the tummy. My stomach is my “zone” that I’m not that comfortable with on my body. I feel like I look a couple months pregnant because after I had Victoria I discovered I had a hernia. It sticks out and it’s something that I’m very conscious about when it comes to being in a swimsuit.
I’m going to share with you some additional options for one piece suits that moms can rock on the beach or at the pool. You want to make sure you have one that fits you like a glove and that you won’t be worrying about falling off or down. I know it’s not all about just the fit, it’s about the style, too. You want to look fabulous, too! How can you feel good if you don’t feel that you look good? It’s a win win for everyone!
Here are some one piece options that are all beautiful and have reasonable prices, too. Hopefully one of these will capture your attention. I also have the link to my red one piece swimsuit in this post, too! You will fall in love with mine, too. I also want to add that my suit comes in black and also a floral print, too. It’s also $26 right now! Yes, I didn’t mess that up.
