A FIRST-TIME mom is buying a whole new summer wardrobe for her baby, and she added some swimwear for herself, too.
One bikini stood out by making her feel sexy, while other styles didn't get her stamp of approval.
At just 10 weeks postpartum, Cassady Szabo (@thesabomorgans) ordered a haul of swimsuits from Old Navy.
The Canadian influencer pushed herself "outside her comfort zone" by trying on the bikinis in a video on TikTok.
"I'm used to my pre-pregnancy body," she said, getting vulnerable with her followers.
"There's nothing wrong with my new body, Szabo admitted, but it was unfamiliar to her. "It's like an identity crisis, a little bit."
She eased into the haul by starting with citrus-print bikini bottoms that matched her baby's swimsuit.
Because she couldn't obtain a matching swimsuit set, she paired the patterned bottoms with a plain black triangle top.
"I honestly do not know how I feel about these bottoms," Szabo said skeptically. "It looks weird having a pattern and a flat."
She also tried the plain top with boyfriend shorts in the same fruity pattern but laughed at the result.

"No, this is bad too," she said. There were really only two courses of action available.
"I think I either need to get a matching top, or just return it," she decided.
Her next swimsuit choice was also a "mismatched" set, but there was a key difference.
The teal bottoms were paired with an asymmetrical top featuring a palm tree print.
"Doesn't it work better with the solid on the bottom, print on the top?" Szabo asked as she modeled it.
The bikini was a lot different from the "skimpy" suits she was used to.
"This is definitely the most full-coverage," she said. That's what made it a great fit for her baby's swim lessons.
"I don't usually like full coverage, but I feel like this is probably a good mom suit so I can play with my baby in the water," she said.
And to top it off, she held up a tiny one-piece in a matching pattern – Szabo had purchased mommy-and-me swimsuits.
The last bathing suit she tried on, though, had no match and no equal.
Szabo's jaw dropped as she looked at herself in the brown two-piece.
Its metallic ring accents at the side of her hip and center of her chest glinted in the light.

"Now, this one. Are you kidding me?" asked the thrilled shopper. "I love this."
"I feel like a hot mom," Szabo continued, striking a pool-ready pose in her new favorite swimsuit. "I just need a beverage."
