Believe it or not, wearing a bikini is simply for the empowerment of the wearer rather than for the amusement or pleasure of those who see them.
The empowerment from wearing a bikini (or any swimsuit, for that matter) comes from being confident in one’s true self. It’s about owning your body—flaws and all—and being proud of the skin you’re in, and these moms are doing just that.
Celebrity Moms Who Are Not Afraid to Flaunt Their Bikini Bodies
Ahead, we list all the celebrity moms who are fearlessly showing off their curves, stretch marks, scars, and whatnot and are inspiring other women to do the same.
1. Iza Calzado
ICYMI, Iza Calzado recently gave birth to her first child, Deia Amihan Calzado Wintle, last January 26. Although the new mom hasn’t posted any recent bikini photos post-partum, during the months leading up to her birth, the actress proudly showed off her baby bump. Here she is looking radiant in a white ribbed bikini.
2. Andi Eigenmann
Andi Eigenmann previously opened up about her struggles with her post-partum weight gain. Since the start of her two-year fitness journey, you can find her proudly posting her unfiltered toned body on Instagram and she looks absolutely breathtaking.
3. Sarah Lahbati
Sarah Lahbati’s Instagram feed is filled with photos of her at the beach donning the chicest bikini OOTDs. On a previous trip to El Nido, she’s seen posing next to her hubby Richard Gutierrez in a sultry green bikini. The best part? She was wearing her tiger stripes loud and proud. Netizens even praised her for normalizing stretchmarks and for being the inspiration that she is.
4. Camille Prats
It’s not easy being a mother, especially a mother of four. Your body goes through tons of changes and it’s not always easy to accept them. During Preview‘s #BePrevYou campaign, Camille Prats confessed how she used to feel sad about her stretchmarks but has since embraced them. Now she wears her marks proudly and she’s honestly glowing.
5. Ina Raymundo
Ina Raymundo has proven time and again that age truly is just a number. Even in her 40s, she’s still rocking bikinis and she doesn’t care what people say about her stretchmarks. She once said, “As you get older, you realize that life is too short and precious to worry about trivial things”—and her words couldn’t be any truer.
6. Elisse Joson
Elisse Joson puts her post-partum stretchmarks on full display as she casually poses in a dainty floral bikini. “Battle scars,” she captioned the photo.
7. Cai Cortez
Cai Cortez recently hit the beach in the cutest strawberry-print bikini and she sure looked stunning. The mother of two also shared some words of wisdom in her post saying, “There comes a time in your life when you don’t care. You don’t care what other people will say. You don’t care what other people will think. Ang importante, alam ko sa sarili ko mabuti akong tao, mabait ako sa kapwa, mabuti akong ina, oks na ko.” This a great reminder for everyone to stop focusing so much on looks and learn to be kind instead.
8. Geneva Cruz
Geneva Cruz has never been one to shy away from a sultry bikini OOTD. She’s also not afraid to clap back at body shamers and inspire other women to embrace their bodies in spite of their flaws. “Wearing a two-piece swimsuit on a beach or in a resort is more than okay, and no one should be shamed for it, and all women can rock it despite their biological age, weight, height, or skin,” she once said.
9. Sunshine Cruz
Just like her sister, Sunshine Cruz isn’t afraid to flaunt her bikini body on the ‘gram either. When she’s not posting adorable coordinating OOTDs with her daughters, you can often find her flaunting her own looks proving that she’s one hot momma even at 45.
10. Sofia Andres
Sofia Andres is currently in San Remigio, Cebu vacationing with family and friends and she’s looking stylish as ever. Here she is confidently strutting her stuff in a green bikini and we can’t help but be in awe!
