With your bump growing nicely you’ve got the hottest summer accessory going around. As the warmer weather approaches, (and the pregnant hot flushes creep in) you’re going to need some seriously cool maternity swimwear for dipping your toes in the water.
One-piece or two, contemporary or classic – there are plenty of maternity swimwear options out there. Great support and comfort determine if a maternity swimsuit will sink or swim. And the obvious requirement of making you look and feel like a total beach babe is a must.
