Mother Essentials: Becca Ingle of LainSnow
Written by Katie Hintz-Zambrano
Swim season is fully upon us—which is why Becca Ingle, the founder of LainSnow, is serving up her favorite Mother Essentials with a specific beach and swim focus! The mother of two (Lainey, 8, and Roman, 7) knows a thing or two about summertime vibes. As the founder and designer behind the high-quality swim brand (named after her daughter, and featuring matching styles for mom, dad, and kids), she has immersed herself in what makes swimwear work for families. “We are a traveling beach family,” she explains. “And Lain Snow swimwear was inspired by our travels around the world and staying active on vacation as a mom on-the-go. The ribbed suits match the entire family in various shades and patterns, and make sure to help that postpartum mama body feel best. Our kid shades include neon collections to help easily spot children in the water for drowning prevention.” Check out Becca’s tried-and-true beach must-haves list below!
Morning Yoga. “I love starting my day with sunrise yoga at the beach. Something about getting a workout in by the ocean is so calming and keeps the rest of my day flowing easily.
