Surprise Her With Something Special This Mother's Day
Beyonce and Blue Ivy Carter do it. Kim Kardashian and North West do it too. And even though these celebrity offspring have no say in what they’re dressed in, their mother’s desire to “twin” is rather cute as are their social media accounts where they showcase their matching outfits to the rest of us mere mortals.
Celebrity mum and daughter dressing aside, this type of dressing up as been coming in and out of fashion for the last century, reflecting the ever-evolving attitudes towards both motherhood and femininity.
The trend of mommy-daughter matching outfits continues to flourish, placing a cultural emphasis on the special mother-daughter bond, and in some cases highlighting wealth and social status.
Once upon a time, it was mommy-daughter matching dresses. Today, anything matchy-matchy goes, including matching swimsuits and resort wear.
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, this is the ultimate Mother’s Day gift idea for your partner and child. Matching outfits for the special girls in your life? Yes please! Here are some great matching swim and beachwear ideas for inspiration.
How To Shop Matching Mummy & Daughter Swimsuits (When You’re Not A Woman)
Buying women’s clothing for your partner is daunting enough as it is, but swimsuits? Now that’s a whole new level. But if you follow this simple advice when shopping, you’ve got less of a chance of going wrong.
Whether it’s a matching mummy and daughter one piece swimsuit, a bikini, or a beach cover up you’re looking to buy as a creative gift, you’ll need to do a bit of research. And since you most likely want this to be a surprise, you’ll have to familiarise yourself with how to shop for matching mummy and daughter swimsuits.
Sometimes you’ll find the swimsuit you want to buy your partner doesn’t have a “mini-me” version, but there are a few things you can look for to achieve that “almost” matching mummy and daughter look.
The secret is to look for any matching details and also trends, such as gingham prints or colour blocking. Also, when buying your wife or girlfriend a swimsuit or bikini to match your daughter’s, you’ll need to consider her body type.
In short, for curvier figures look for one piece swimsuits with ruched side detail – colour-block styles also work. For ladies with a flatter chest, think ruched skimpy bikinis, plunging necklines and moulded cups. On the contrary, those with a larger bust would look better with more underwire support. For long torsos, high waisted hipster pants can help create the illusion of longer legs while shortening the torso, and for a shorter torso, look for styles that add inches, such as one shoulder and strapless swimsuits.
Have you treated your partner to a luxury beach getaway this Mother's Day? Perhaps you've got a resort trip pencilled in for later this year? Regardless of when you’re going, these Lovekini one shoulder one piece swimsuits with a 3D floral applique trim would make any female happy, no matter what the age. This chic look is also available in white and beige.

With a flattering cut and moderate bottom coverage, these matching swimsuits are for the women and girls in your life that like to live on the wild side and have fun whilst doing it!
Buying matching beach cover ups is also a unique idea.

These matching mother daughter beach dresses are available in six different colours, including white, yellow, pink, orange and purple.
