Pool Hangs with Kortni Jeane
It’s almost summertime, and we’re beyond ready to open up the pool for the first time in our new house! I’m also stoked B and I will be rocking these cute suits from Kortni Jeane.
Last summer, I wrote a post on our Kortni Jeane suits, and I absolutely loved the top and bottom pieces I had. For my specific body type, I dig how high-waisted bottoms accentuate my waist, and I love that Kortni Jeane’s bottoms aren’t cheeky like a lot of high-waisted styles tend to be. I need my swimming suits to be functional, flattering, and fun - for me KJ hits all those marks 10/10.
KJ keeps the same styles for each season, but changes up the patterns and colors. They also do an amazing job of staying on brand time after time, which meant that my suit from last year looks cute mixed with this year’s suit. I also know that when I fall in love with a certain fit on a top or bottom that it’ll stick around with new looks so I can refreshen up my swimwear.
We had SO many compliments last summer on our matching KJ suits - I think a lot of moms dug the combo of modesty without compromising style. And it’s always fun to coordinate with your littles! They have suits for both boys and girls, AND they even carry a men’s line.
I’m a strong believer in feeling confident in your swimming suit, and not sitting on the sidelines because of your insecurities. I say that knowing many of us still have those insecurities, sidelines or no sidelines, and a flattering suit always helps my confidence at the pool. Below are my picks from the KJ line based on experience! They’re launching a new line so soon, so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, these fits won’t change. Be sure to read up on the bullet points below each fit - they’ll address what bust sizes work best and how each fit runs. P.S. I wear mediums in both top and bottom pieces - linked styles all run TTS.
Tie-Up Front Bottoms (Pictured) - I was a little nervous the tie-up feature would just draw attention to my stomach, but these bottoms really do camouflage any insecurities you may have in this area.
Ruched Bottoms - These were the bottoms I rocked all last summer! They kind of suck you in a little with a forgiving ruche.
Racer Back Top (Pictured) - Maybe it’s just me, but I wanted a swim top that made me feel as cute and comfy as I do in a sports bra. I love that this top has a fun racer back style. It’s also supportive if I need to sprint after B at the pool (definite possibility let’s be real.)
Swing Top - I love love this top, and will still be wearing it this summer too. It’s high-cut enough to be a little more modest for bustier women. There’s a fully lined shelf bra built in underneath the flowy cut, and it’s a great option if you’re working with more in the chest area but don’t really want to advertise it.
What B’s wearing: Size 2/3 (She’s in-between 2T and 3T sizes now, and it’s perfect.) in the racer-back top and peplum bottoms. Also definitely considering getting B one of their mini rash guard tops for weekends at the lake this summer!
