I need a great swimsuit for this summer that will help minimize the mom pooch and porn star boobs without being the standard boring black one-piece. And I prefer no halter styles. I tried them, but the post-baby boobs cause the straps to dig into my neck! Please help!"
My dear Elissa - anyone who expects a woman to have a baby and then prance off to the beach in her bikini obviously doesn't understand the female body. There's a reason why Angelina Jolie keeps adopting. Hope one of my picks makes the prospect of hitting the sand a bit less daunting!
