The Best Maternity Swimwear For Summer

The weather is heating up. But don't feel like you have to cover up just because you're pregnant! Maternity swimwear has come a long way, and you've got lots of options whether or not you want to actually bare your bump.

Bare baby belly in bikini


The "tankini" style swimsuit is ideal for any stage in your pregnancy. It offers a loose and flowing top paired with bikini-style bottoms. We love this tankini top, which is a total steal at just $23, from Liz Lange for Target. The floral pattern is oh-so in this season and you can pair the top with plain black bottoms or jazz it up with red or pink (sold separately).

Halter top

If you're like most women, your belly is not the only thing growing throughout your pregnancy. Support your girls with a halter-style suit like this maternity halter tankini top from Old Navy for $30.

Two-piece bikini

If you've got it, flaunt it! Go bold and bare your belly in a hot red two-piece like this one from A Pea in the Pod for $150.

One piece

If you don't want to bare your belly in a teeny bikini, we suggest you get cheeky with an adorable one-piece suit like this cherry patterened one from Motherhood for $40.

Own it

Regardless of the style of maternity swimwear you choose, make sure you feel comfortable in what you wear. You shouldn't be pulling or tugging at any part of your suit, wishing there were more of it! And you shouldn't feel that you have to hide out in your cover up all day, either.

Keep in mind that although you may not like the way you look in a swimsuit as much as you have in the past, your body is doing a very important job on the inside... and that's way more important than what it looks like on the outside. It's also important to recognize that you are probably your own worst critic. So relax and rock your maternity bathing suit with pride!
