The 16 Best Maternity Swimsuits for Your Growing Bump
Shop Story

We know the idea of wearing a swimsuit while pregnant can be somewhat of a scary idea. Your body is changing every day and you need clothes that can not only keep up with those changes but that fit, flatter and make you feel your best. The right maternity swimsuit can be just the ticket to a great vacation or summer while pregnant.


Much like maternity dresses or jeans, a maternity swimsuit has to fit just right. There are many different styles to chose from and finding the one that’s right for you may take a bit of trial and error. We recommend starting with a style you loved pre-pregnancy and going from there. And definitely do not be afraid to rock a bikini during those 40 weeks!


Our best maternity swimwear picks include an array of cuts, styles and patterns. Whether you prefer to go demure and cover-up or accentuate your baby bump, you’ll find your perfect fit to show off that pregnancy glow and that growing belly.


Below, check out the 16 best maternity swimsuits.
