You won’t be catching Carrie Underwood in an itsy, bitsy, teeny, weeny, yellow polka dot bikini.
The hit country star, who is also the creator of Calia athleisure, sat down with People to talk about the new swim collection and her aversion to triangle-shaped bikinis.
“I feel like with swimwear, growing up in my teenage years, early 20s, I couldn’t wear a triangle swimsuit,” Underwood said. And that will never change, “I can’t do it, it’s not going to happen. It would never have happened,” she added.
The “All-American Girl” singer said after trying many styles for years, she has landed on “sporty” bathing suits. She describes the Caila collection as “pretty and functional” that will boost confidence.
“I’ve had women come up to me and be like, ‘Thank you! I can take my teenage daughter and we can get things that are cute but also appropriate for her and for me,’” Underwood added. “And I think of myself running after my crazy kids and being at hotel pools, wanting to be cute but also not wanting to worry about things,” she adds hinting at bathing suit wardrobe malfunctions. “Everything stays where it’s supposed to!”
As the mother of two boys, Jacob, 5 months, and Isaiah, 4, she has her hands full.
“[Isaish] is a fish, he loves being in the water.” However, Underwood prefers “being by the water or on the water, not so much in it. But it’s nice watching him, maybe having a glass of wine by the pool.”
