Are there any maternity swimsuits that aren’t hideous? I’m due at the end of summer.
Yes, yes, and YES! The days of ugly, tent wearing, floral bump-hiding swimwear are over! We say, it’s summer, celebrate your bump. From tankinis to bikinis to one piece swimwear, there are a lot of fun and fabulous options to choose from. The one thing we always suggest, no matter how good they look on the hanger, is to try them on. Your changing body shape may mean adjusting your summer style.
One great place to start is pregO Maternity for their variety of hip styles and fabrics. If you’re looking to splurge, head to A Pea in the Pod and check out their wide-ranging swim wear collection. From ruching to twist fronts to creative smocking, their designers have created something for everyone.
If shelling out the big bucks for this short lived season isn’t in your budget, we get it! That’s why we’re big fans of stores like Target. They’ve recently revamped their entire Maternity selection to great effect. Liz Lange is one great reason to check out their swimwear. We also like Old Navy for their mix and match variety that’s also wallet friendly—you won’t be disappointed with what they have to offer. And finally, for those of you who prefer to keep your bump under wraps, don’t miss out on all the colorful cover-ups and beach wraps that will keep you and your bump in style during the hot summer months. Don’t forget: a fabulous hat and chic, summer sandals will make even a nine-month ready-to-pop bump beach friendly!
