Designer Maternity Swimwear for Summer

Jul 15, 2008
Swimwear designers have put a newfound importance on suits for pregnant women, and these new designs, styles and prints mean you can be as daring or conservative as you'd like with your bump on the beach. We have put together a quick guide to the wonderful world of maternity swimwear.

The important thing to consider when shopping for maternity swimsuits is comfort and support. Combinations of cotton and nylon fabric will provide the support you need, and with a proportion of spandex the swimsuit will keep its shape as yours changes.

You can't go far wrong with a one piece suit with boy cut legs and space for expansion in the belly area. These traditional suits have been given a new twist with skirted bottoms or low, boy-leg styles. Expecting hips will get broader, so a suit with good coverage of your back legs is a must to prevent ride ups.

Tankinis are the ideal shape for maternity swimsuits as you have the shape of a bikini bottom with the coverage and comfort of a singlet-style top. The classic bikini is always popular, giving you the freedom to have your bump out and about on the beach.

Then there's the 'pregkini', a suit with an apron or wrap which clips on underneath the bikini top, covering your stomach and giving you an alternative to the traditional bikini shape. They're a good solution to what to wear as your bump expands and grows. The 'babykini' is a two piece suit with drawstring short bottoms.

When it comes to colour black is the new black for maternity swimsuits. Dark block colours are definitely striking and slimming, but you can purchase a vast range of colours and prints.

Halter style tops are striking and supportive, both important considerations as your belly and bust grow. Soft cup swimsuit tops give your bust a good shape, while a shelf-style bra will give you good support. Adjustable strap styles on your swimsuit can make a big difference. A keyhole back will keep straps in place and help support your chest.

Little details can make all the difference to your suit. Bust ties and bikini side ties are feminine and give you adaptability with your suit's shape. Pretty straps, distinctive clasps and modern empire-line ties will give your suit a little bit of individuality.

Above all you must make sure that the swimwear is wearable and comfortable for both you and your baby.
