Great New Maternity Swimwear For The Summer Season

Apr 30, 2008
Summer is just around the corner which means that it's not too early to find the perfect maternity swimsuit. Fortunately, maternity swimwear shopping does not have to be as daunting as it sounds with so many fun styles on the market today. You may even find maternity swimwear shopping a lot more fun and a good deal less frustrating than shopping for a suit pre-pregnancy because for once you don't have to worry about a belly slimming style! The hard part is figuring out what style is best for your new body type. Here are a few suggestions to guide you in your selection based upon your top priorities in a maternity swimsuit:

Belly Coverage

The Tankini and Halterkini styles are all fun, flirty bikini skimming styles that usually allow a little bit of belly to peek without showing your whole basketball tummy to the world. These styles are easy to wear as they are 2 piece and allow modesty without being prudish. As the name implies the Tankini are typically tank style tops which are usually more supportive for more endowed women while the Halterkinis are maternity swimsuits with behind the neck halter tie styles which can create a little more cleavage depending on the how low cut the style of the suit and the bust size of the woman wearing it.

Different Size on Top and Bottom

Since many stores and manufacturers do not sell separate sizes for top and bottoms, the adjustable tie bottoms can be made bigger or smaller to help with this dilemma. The Hipkini is another variation of the Tankini and Halterkini 2 piece styles and depending on the manufacturer can either implies a lower rise bikini bottom or an adjustable tie bikini bottom. If you need to make more or less room in the hip/thigh area the adjustable tie is very useful in getting the perfect fit and looks cute at the same time!

Hip and Bottom Coverage

The maternity Babydoll style suit can come in both Tank and Halter styles is an excellent choice for a full coverage maternity swimsuit that looks flattering but not frumpy. This style suit usually comes with over the belly bottoms, so even if the top rides over the belly in the water, you are still fully covered. Prego Maternity Swimwear currently makes a number of fun patterned Babydoll suits including an Aloho black and white pattern as well as solids. Another bonus of the Babydoll is that it offers superior bust support.


The Prego Strapless Mini maternity swimsuit is a superb 2 piece mini with under the belly bikini bottoms. The mini top fully covers the tummy and hips and gives you a sleek elongated look, along with your baby bump of course. Prego's lightly padded mini top provides surprising support for a strapless suit and fits securely across the bust like a tube. This suit also has a detachable halter string that gives a little extra assurance for swimmers, if desired. Prego makes the mini in a number of pretty patterns as well as solids.

Fashionable 1 Pieces

Yes, it is possible to wear a one piece maternity suit and look sexy! Maternal America's 1 Piece Keyhole Swimsuit is an excellent style for all body types. This one piece has incredible lines that really flatter your figure with adjustable halter ties and peek-a-boo keyhole center. So while you are fully covered, you are far from prudish in this tastefully sexy suit. This season Maternal America maternity clothes is also offering the "Jasmine" 1 Piece Keyhole Suit in a zesty turquoise pattern which is perfect for any island or beach get away!

Maternity Bikinis

If less is more for you and you have the body to go with it, then by all means flaunt it! But, don't even think about squeezing into your pre-pregnancy suit, because the fit is not the same when you are pregnant! Bellabumbum makes a glove-like colorful striped maternity bikini that is truly designed to fit your maternity shape for all trimesters. The Bellabumbum Bikini is a halter style top and comes in both mandarin and aqua stripes. The bottoms have a secure wide comfortable band with adjustable ties. Prego Maternity also makes a perfectly fitting Maternity Bikini with a keyhole halter style top and very elastic hip riding bikini bottoms. Prego's Maternity Bikini comes in both solid black and brown.

So, whether your goal is to show more or show less, there is a maternity swimsuit style suit out there that is perfect for you!
