Moms Can Wear Bikinis, End of Story.
As I left the pool today – with a cover-up over my bikini, all 4 kids (ages 6 years down to 4 months) in tow, I received a message to write about THIS. At first I didn’t understand. How can anyone possibly shame a new mom? It happened – and probably happens more than we know. A new mom – just 4 months postpartum was spoken down to at her local Missouri pool. The mom was enjoying her time when a woman approached her to chat about her baby. Everything was fine until the woman told her that “the men at the pool would feel more comfortable if [she] was in a one-piece swim suit because a bikini isn’t appropriate for a mother, especially one who’s still recovering.”
