Pull out the beach towels and sunglasses, warm weather is finally here! For some pregnant women, finding something to wear to the pool or beach can tough, especially if you need more support or coverage than usual. From cute maternity bikinis to trendy one-piece suits, here is some of the best maternity swimwear out there from retailers like Amazon, Motherhood Maternity and more.
You gotta catch 'em all! The highly anticipated live action film, Pokémon Detective Pikachu hits theaters on May 10th, and fans are already eager to get their hands on movie merchandise. But what keeps kids and parents so passionate about the famous Japanese characters? "The ever-expanding Pokémon franchise has been a beacon for kids and kids at heart since the original video games launched more than 20 years ago," says J.C. Smith, Senior Director of Consumer Marketing of The Pokémon Company International. "Since its introduction, the beloved animation series, the ever-popular Pokémon Trading Card Game, Pokémon GO and a wide variety of video games and apps have offered fans a variety of ways to engage with our iconic collection of Pokémon like Pikachu. With its family-friendly messages of sportsmanship, friendship and community, Pokémon is a brand that parents know and trust."
It is this reason that longtime gaming fans and new Pokémon lovers are buzzing about the soon-to-be-released feature film. "Pokémon is on the same level as Super Mario Bros. and Pac-Man," adds James Zahn, Toy Expert and Senior Editor of The Pop Insider. "It's never gone away, and it's constantly being reinvented to stay fresh and relevant. When Detective Pikachu was announced, there was a collective eyebrow raised at the prospect of Ryan Reynolds playing a version of the iconic yellow creature. When that first trailer hit, audiences could see exactly why he's perfect for the part. It's so absurd that it's genius. This will be a great chance for parents and kids to connect at the movies." And for those die-hard fans, we've rounded up the latest Pokémon launches and hot-sellers that will soon be flying off store shelves. We guarantee that super-sleuth Pikachu fans won't have to search hard to find these fun pieces!

Comfortable, supportive leggings aren't just for pregnant moms—moms who just gave birth deserve soft, stretchy material that feels great to wear, too. Even better than average leggings, control-top leggings are designed for postpartum women. They have support and control panels that offer core stability, shaping and smoothing and coverage for areas that many women can feel self-conscious about post-baby. Check out these awesome postpartum leggings from Motherhood Maternity, Target, Amazon and more.
Summer is right around the corner. In addition to planning camps for your kids, vacations and maybe a little time to relax for yourself, moms will also want to think about updating their beauty routine for the season. While summer is a time for fun in the sun, it's that very sun that can also be dangerous for our skin, which can cause burns and early signs of aging. Because moms are already stretched thin and overtired, we really don't need any added wrinkles from the sun. That's why we love these nine beauty products from Walmart that also protect us with broad-spectrum SPF. From concealers to lotions and even lipstick, these nine SPF-infused beauty products will be lifesavers for moms this summer.

Hitting the beach or pool with the kids calls for a reliable, absorbent beach towel. Forget soaking wet swimsuits, sand-covered beach blankets and too-small towels—these are the best of the best when it comes to keeping your kiddos dry and comfortable for long days in the water. Check out our favorite beach towel finds from Pottery Barn Kids, Target, Walmart and more.
Dressing after baby can be a difficult task. While your maternity clothes may not fit anymore, there's a chance you're not ready for your pre-baby clothes—and that's totally normal! Losing the baby weight healthily takes time, and it can take a while for the uterus to shrink back to its normal size. For the in-between period, finding great postpartum clothes can make all of the difference. For a range of clothes that are flattering, supportive and stretchy enough to accommodate your post-baby body, check out these stylish options.
