The best maternity swimwear for 2020 | Mum's Grapevine

Maternity swimwear comes in all shapes and sizes – think bikinis, tankinis and bathers. But like all maternity wear, support, comfort and a great fit determine if a maternity swimsuit will sink or swim.

With bump growing nicely and the warmer weather approaching, it’s time to hunt down some sizzling maternity swimwear so you can look as good as you feel this summer.

Here are some of the key things to keep in mind when shopping for maternity bathers:

Stretch: Most swimwear has a decent amount of stretch, but maternity swimwear needs to give just that little bit more. Swimsuits with ruching at the sides allow bump to grow comfortably and also give a flattering shape to your post-baby bod.

Adjustable straps: Like everything else during pregnancy, your breast are likely to change as your darling bub grows. Keep an eye out for pregnancy swimwear with straps that can be adjusted with ease. This small detail lets you adjust the fit as needed throughout each trimester to ensure you’re comfy as can be at the beach.

Feeding-friendly: If you’re looking for longevity, consider a maternity swimsuit that’s designed for breastfeeding. Whether it’s a button-down front or clip-down cups, easy feeding access is a great feature for those early baby days.
