spanx swimsuits

Raise your hand if you love Spanx. 🙋 When you want just a little extra support, this shaping-up, thigh-and-stomach-hugging shapewear never fails.


And, just in time for summer, we came to the magical revelation that our beloved brand makes swimsuits! There are so many styles to flatter whatever body shape you have and most are made of a lycra fabric that combats chlorine so you don't have to worry about it losing its shape.

We rounded up our favorite pieces that are available on Amazon Prime:

Halter one-piece

A simple black halter one-piece that would look great on every body shape—we especially love the tie design on the middle. It features a double-layer underwire cup so if you're bigger chested, you'll be supported running around with your little ones.

$39.48

Woven strap one-piece

This one has full rear coverage if you prefer a more covered look. It has a gorgeous braided criss-cross strap in the back and two front panels that show a little more skin on the front.

$32.99

Sweetheart one-piece

spanx one piece swimsuit

With contour cups and push-up padding, this one-piece is one of the sexier ones on the list. But, don't worry—you'll stay put! It features a bond paneling to add a little extra support on the lower tummy.

$19.99

Mid-waisted swim bottom + top

If you still want a bikini feel with a little more coverage, we love these mid-waisted swim bottoms. The shaping material smooths and firms the tummy so you'll still get that support with your favorite top.

$14.99

Loop tankini swim top

A bandeau-style tankini top that has removable (and adjustable) straps—yes, please! It has removable padding and side boning to ensure you're as comfortable as possible.

$19.99

Bandeau push up on-piece

In two fun colors—electric blue and fruit punch polka—and under $20, you'll want to grab both. With push-up padding and an adjustable tie overlay, you'll get to customize your cleavage.

$19.99

Loop piece swimsuit

Detachable and adjustable straps, removable padding, fully lined and two patterns—what more could we want in a one-piece?

$24.99

We independently select and share the products we love—and may receive a commission if you choose to buy. You've got this.

They say necessity is the mother of invention—and nothing makes you more inventive than motherhood.

Sometimes that means fashioning a diaper out of paper towels and your older child's underpants (true story). Sometimes that means creating an innovative and life-changing weighted baby sleep sack and totally crushing it on Shark Tank. Tara Williams is the latter.

This oil completely changed my skin this summer

And I'm never going back to lotion.

For all the sweating and swimming I do in the summer, it seems illogical for my skin to be as parched as ever. But your mid-thirties (and 2020 in general) don't really seem to follow any rule book, so here we are.

A couple of months ago, I was on the lookout for a moisturizer that would not only keep my legs from looking like an ashy mess, but also truly nourish and benefit my skin. I've developed a deep interest in skin care for my face over the past few years and decided it's high time to extend that degree of consideration to the rest of my body. (After all, there's more of it, right?)

It's not that I'm too concerned with aging, but let's be real. If there's something that can be done to slow the Wrinkle Express, I'm going to give it a go. I also wanted to find something natural that wouldn't turn into a goopy mess the second I started sweating.

Enter: Esker's Firming Body Oil.

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to have kids—so here’s what I did

We asked our three most pessimistic friends who have kids whether it's worth it or not

As told to Liz Tenety.

Around the time my husband and I were turning 30, we had a genuine conversation about whether or not we wanted kids. I was the hesitant one because I was like, "Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Let's just hold on. Okay, let's talk about this. Because we love our life. We like traveling. Is this what we want?"

My husband said, "Let's ask our three most pessimistic, crabby friends who have kids whether or not it's worth it."

And every single one of them was like, "Oh, it's unmissable on planet earth."

So when I got pregnant, I was—and I'm not ashamed to say this and I don't think you should be—I was as connected with the baby in my belly as if it were a water bottle. I was like, I don't know you. I don't know what you are, but you can be some gas pain sometimes, but other than that, we're going to have to meet each other and suss this relationship out.

But all the cliches are true that you just know what to do when the baby comes out. Some of the times are hard, some of them are easier, but you just gotta use your gut.
