How stars dress when they undress

It's one thing to be on the best-dressed list, especially when you have a top stylist on speed dial, but what a star chooses to wear when they hit the beach this summer reveals even more about who they really are.

She's too busy looking after her family and working at being the best mom she can be. She might not be a size zero anymore, but she's proud of who she is and thinks she owes it to herself (and her children) to dress respectfully, even when in a swimsuit.
