Splish splash, it’s time to go swimming! A maternity bathing suit is just what you need to enjoy the water when you’re pregnant. They’re both comfortable and made to accommodate those beautiful curves. So: get to the beach and pool!

Whether you love swimming in a pool or the ocean, lounging at the beach or on a boat, or you are going on a vacation, there is a maternity swimsuit that is right for you. Call it beachwear, swimwear, loungewear, or all of the above, maternity swimsuits are an important essential to your pregnancy wardrobe, as they are made to compliment your ever-changing bumps and curves. Oftentimes they are adjustable, with straps and tops that can be customized in a certain way to your comfort level and body type. They normally have ruching on the sides too as well as fabric with elasticity. They need to be lined to offer full, complete coverage, so you always feel secure in your maternity swimsuit. It also helps if they are breathable and quick drying.

Do your homework: research the different styles of maternity swimsuits (one-piece, tankini, etc.), and find the one that’s right for you.

Regular bathing suits definitely have some elasticity to them but it’s just not enough to keep up with your blossoming baby bump. If you plan on spending any time in the water during your 9-month pregnancy, then you need to get yourself a reliable maternity swimsuit. These bathing suits are specially designed to be flexible as well as comfortable, with full coverage and yet enough roominess that it will grow along with you. And a maternity swimsuit need not be strictly practical – with a few added details and embellishments, these bathing suits can not only be stylish but are adorable too.
