Maternity Swimwear: Pregnancy Doesn’t Mean You Can’t Swim
April 06, 2021
So, you’re pregnant? Congratulations!
Now there’s often a misconception that when you’re pregnant you can’t swim... But in fact, according to obstetricians and gynecologists, swimming is one of the safest forms of exercise during pregnancy (just stay away from water skiing, diving, and any other intense water sports!)
The struggles of finding new clothes when you’re pregnant is frustrating – and the same goes for swimwear. Which is why we’re here to help you find the best maternity swimwear option for you!
So, let’s get into the pros and cons of each style…
If you prefer to cover your bump, a maternity one piece may just be the perfect option. Our maternity one pieces are made from supportive, flexible fabrications which stretch with your bump as it grows. So it can last your whole pregnancy!
Adjustable straps and built in bras will help to keep your growing breasts in place whilst you swim as well.
A one piece really is a fabulous option if you’re looking for a staple investment piece you can wear all the time. And with our prices ranging from $70 to $195, we’re sure we can help you find the perfect fit that works with your budget.
Now if you’re wanting something you can switch up, mix and match sets with and show off that cute bump – a bikini set would be right up your alley.
A maternity bikini will draw attention to your new cleavage with a supportive, built in shelf bra too.
In your first trimester you might be able to wear a non-maternity bikini with ties at the side that you can adjust as your bump grows. Otherwise, multi-fit bikini tops are also a fabulous choice as they’ll be tailored to move and adjust comfortably with your bust size.
Still not sure? Is a one piece a little too conservative and a bikini a little too revealing for you? Find the perfect, stylish compromise with our tankinis! Instead of a bikini bra, the tankini comes with a stretchy vest-style top which will cover most of your bump. Ruched sides will also help prevent your tankini riding up.
Similarly, if you want to hide your bump A-line tankinis are a perfect alternative.
And if you’re planning to wear your swimwear in a birth pool, grab a tankini set (we sell tankinis separately and as a set). You can them easily slip off the bottoms right before you give birth.
