On maternity leave (officially, anyway) for the summer, I imagined lots of pool time. What I hadn’t factored in was the smushy state of my midsection three month after batting out Boy No. 2. A tankini would be nice for a bit more coverage and comfort while swimming with a toddler, but then there’s the state of the boobs, which require some sort of underwire treatment. Good luck finding a tankini with underwire in stores. It’s the dumbest thing – these suits with extra coverage are really designed to fit women who probably don’t need it. I’m glad I complained about this on my radio show, "Shop Girls," because a listener called in and suggested Athleta.com, a great website where you can buy swimwear by cup size – tankinis and all. Brilliant!
