For some people, the process of shopping for swimwear is enough to induce anxiety. Most moms, especially those who have just given birth, usually get conscious of their postpartum bodies. And of course, there’s that issue of having to breastfeed their babies. But Float Swimwear wants to help moms overcome these concerns.
In an Instagram post, they highlighted how their swimsuits, available in XS-3XL, are “breastfeeding-friendly.” They further captioned the photos of a breastfeeding mom with a long empowering message. A part of it reads: “Though the world keeps telling us they know better, wear what you like. Go ahead and strip away all the layers of shame and expectation. Your body is yours: for pleasure, for purpose, for nourishment, for fun.” Adding that, “As your body goes through the seasons, let it change and blossom and bear fruit. This is a transformation that should never be covered up. Clothe yourself with the confidence that you know exactly what your body can do.”
Now that’s a message we can get behind. We truly hope moms will realize that their bodies are beautiful―and, yes, just as much as the next woman, they can totally work those cute swimwear they’ve been eyeing on online shops since forever. It’s a shame to let your insecurities get in the way of you and your baby enjoying the summer.
If you want to cop their pieces, Float Swimwear is available at Greenbelt 5 and online.
