Maternity Swimwear Options: Binikins, Tankinis And One Pieces

By Amy Jarman

Swimsuit shopping can be a nerve-racking experience for many women, as their insecurities are front and center. During pregnancy it often becomes more daunting with the many changes that it brings to one’s body. However, there are a multitude of maternity swimwear designers available whose swimsuits are made specifically for one’s changing maternity shape. From added bust support to extra stretchy fabric, a great fit is attained while still maintaining a stylish look. Whatever one’s personal style, or whether one prefers a bikini, tankini, or one-piece, purchasing a swimsuit designed specifically for maternity wear will ensure one looks and feels one’s best.

Although women often shy away from baring their bodies during pregnancy, maternity bikinis are actually incredibly fashionable and functional. Pregnancy is such a special time, and a wonderful way to celebrate it is by showing off one’s baby bump. A bikini is a great choice as it allows plenty of room for one’s bump to grow, ensuring that one never feels constricted. The Bow Top Bikini from maternity swimwear designer Prego is a fabulous choice. Available in classic black or trendy leopard print, this bikini will leave one looking and feeling fabulous. The top has an adjustable tie halter and padded bra, providing extra support and allowing it to be fitted perfectly to one’s own body. The fabric cinches at an oval at the bust, where it culminates with a feminine tie. The bottoms are super cute, with a waistband that can be worn rolled up or down depending on one’s pregnancy stage. With super stretchy fabric, comfort is ensured. Another great choice is Japanese Weekend’s 3 Piece Bikini with Sarong Set, new for this Fall’s line. The rich chocolate brown suit has a stylish, sliding triangle top with cute loop details. The sarong is made with beautiful brown swimwear fabric and trendy gold accents. For one’s relaxing BabyMoon on a cruise ship, this suit is an absolute must.

For those who prefer a bit more coverage than a bikini offers, a maternity tankini or halterkini is a great way to maintain the integrity of a two-piece. A tankini and halterkini are designed the same, aside from the necktie. A tankini has tank straps while a halterkini ties like a halter at the nape of a neck. Both of these options provide excellent bust support during pregnancy. Prego’s Skinny Mini Swimsuit is a classic and flattering choice. The oval neckline and halter tie straps with little loop details is very eye catching. For a slimming look, the empire waist is emphasized, and there is added elastic to add bust support. Vertical seaming on the top furthers the slimming effect. Stylish and comfortable, this halterkini will have you looking your best! Another great choice is BelaBumBum’s Nursing Swimwear Tankini. So versatile, this suit is designed for both maternity and nursing. Designed in a sexy hot pink, a gorgeous baby pink tie at the bust provides a slimming empire waist as well as easy nursing access. With super stretchy bottoms that fit underneath the belly, this suit is as comfortable as it is cute.

Many women prefer a one-piece during maternity, as it guarantees more coverage and more hold. One-pieces have become very trendy this season, and there are many stylish options available. Maternity one-pieces are designed with extra stretchy fabric to ensure comfort throughout one’s pregnancy. The Martha Tankini from Maternal America is brand new this season and super fashionable. The chocolate brown fabric contrasts against a beautifully beaded adjustable halter tie. The adjustability of it ensures that it can be fitted perfectly to one’s body. The fabric is stretchy and comfortable. The O-ring at the bust and light ruching provides a gorgeous bust line, making this a trendy and flattering choice.

Whether one chooses a bikini, tankini, or one-piece, there are many maternity swimwear options available. Pregnancy is a time to celebrate one’s curves, and there is no better way to do so than in that perfect swimsuit!
