One thing I missed while pregnant was being able to wear flared dresses.  I’m loving this dress so much!  It’s simple, classic and very versatile.  I’m happy to report it’s also petite friendly too!

For now, here are some great swimsuits to consider: (love the one pieces)

This polka dot beauty is another favorite dress I got recently.  If you love polka dots, you’re going to go crazy for this dress.  It’s so comfortable and looks great worn alone (love the neckline and sleeves) or with a cardigan.  The dress runs on the smaller side and doesn’t have any stretch.  If you’re similar in size to me, then size small should fit you perfectly.

I’m anxiously waiting for THIS to be available in my size.  I love that Modcloth emails you when something you want comes back in stock.  They re-order based on community feedback so if you see something but your size is sold out, make sure to click the “I NEED IT” button.  I’ve done this several times and it works like a charm!

  1. Hi there! I love that polka dot dress SO much! It looks adorable on you! Can you tell me the waist measurement though? I’m not sure if we’re the same size since I weigh a little more than you (97-98 lbs), but I’m also a bit taller (a whopping 5’3 haha).

  2. Don’t fret about a bathing suit. Modcloth carries esther williams suits. They are amazing. I love my esther williams polka dot suit. Remember took 9 months to make a baby. Give yourself 9 months to get back to shape safely and healthy.
