Fashion Friday: 10 of the Best Maternity Bathing Suits

Fashion Friday: 15 of the Best Maternity Bathing Suits (yes, they have been tried!)

Let me share one truth, this pregnant body will probably not be wearing a bathing suit this spring/summer season many times. I know I’ll have to be in one here and there (I AM due in July!), but I won’t be trotting around in one every single day when the hot weather finally hits for good.

And I’ll share even one more truth… it’s not because I’m not comfortable wearing a maternity bathing suit, but because I can’t shave my legs with this big belly!  I literally cannot see and reach my legs, it’s too difficult and it’s as if I’m playing the game Twister in the shower!

LOL… oh the truths of a pregnant lady!

Now… that being said, maternity bathing suits are (and should be) an essential of all pregnant mamas throughout the spring and summer.  It doesn’t matter if you’re at the beach, at a pool club, alone in your backyard or a family/friend’s pool… bathing suits are something you need to add into your wardrobe.

The question just quickly because, “What are (and where are) the best maternity bathing suits!?

I’ve been scouring high and low lately and I really have found some true gems.

1) Halter Maternity Tankini Swimsuit from A Pea in the Pod

*I love the halter component because you’re getting support on top where you need it. It’s comfortable and has enough ruching to flatter all kinds of different sized bumps!

2) Tankini from Old Navy

*If you love a tankini, here is an adorable option from Old Navy. I love how you have the 2 different bottom options. It’s just perfect for a weekend away.

3) Halter Maternity One Piece Swimsuit Gingham from Destination Maternity

*Gingham is one of my most favorite patterns, I saw this print and just thought it was perfect, perfect, perfect for the summer!

4) Boden’s Maternity Retro Swimsuit in POLKA DOTS

*I love love love POLKA DOTS! I thought this was such a classic suit and perfect for the summer. This makes an impression.

7) Maternal America Cheryl Maternity Swimwear

8) Prego Maternity Nursing Swimwear

*Perfection for the summer if you’re expecting or nursing. Very sweet and very adorable.
