Summer is now well and truly upon us and we don’t know about you, but we can’t stop talking about our holiday plans! We think that one major advantage of being pregnant is the fact that the pressure to have a bikini beautiful body for your summer holiday is well and truly off. There is no need to diet like a maniac, and those extra legs bums and tums classes you usually try to squeeze in before summer (ahem) are there if you want them, but really there’s no need! All you have to do is embrace your blossoming bump and revel in your new pregnancy curves!
To celebrate this fabulous fact, why not splash out on some beautifully cut maternity swimwear! Our styles are specifically designed to provide support and flatter you in all the right places. We have put together this simple guide to the best swimming costume styles so that you can find the one that makes you look and feel fantastic!
Gone are the days when the bikini was the only acceptable form of swimwear for a fashion conscious girl. The one piece swimming costume has made a triumphant return this year so if you invest in a stylish maternity one piece you will be bang on trend and feel 100% supported. Try our classic black halter neck swimming costume for a touch of vintage poolside pinup glamour as well as all the coverage and support you need.
On the other hand, a bikini can be a great choice during pregnancy. It’s great for the early stages when you won’t need much extra support, but equally fabulous for showing off your bump in the later stages of pregnancy! Lookout for a good maternity bikini with a fold over bump band to roll up or down for more or less coverage – you can adapt it to suit you! Jessica Alba took our cute purple and pink bikini away on holiday with her during her first pregnancy to relax by the pool.
A tankini provides a great versatile middle ground option with all the coverage and support of a one piece, as well as the option to roll it up to give your bump some air. You can adapt it depending on how you feel each day! Why not try our red polka dot tankini to bring some retro Riviera chic on holiday with you. Or opt for our black flared strapless tankini for a glamorous look with a handy skirt to skim over your hips.
A nice floaty maternity kaftan is an essential for your summer holiday suitcase. Perfect for covering up on your way between the pool and the beach, it will keep you cool and is also a great way to prevent sunburn. Specifically designed to fit the pregnant figure, the flowing fabric will skim elegantly over your bump.
So whether you’re hitting the beach, relaxing by the pool, or splashing around in the paddling pool in the garden, make sure you invest in some quality maternity swimwear to keep you feeling fabulous and supported throughout your pregnancy.
