Just because you are pregnant, does not mean you have to shy away from the beach or pool. It also does not mean you have to hide behind big tee shirts as you watch your family in the water. Today there are many flattering and sexy maternity swimwear styles on the market that can perfectly compliment your evolving shape as you step out on the beach or in the pool. Here are some recommendations based upon your body type and personal style choice:
Halter Maternity Swimsuits
Embrace your enhanced cleavage with a well made halter swimsuit in a fun color combination or pattern. The magic of halters is that they can be tied to achieve the perfect fit and accommodate a changing shape. They also give you a pretty and feminine silhouette while flattering both your shoulders and bust and giving you an overall slimming appearance. Prego Maternity has a number of fun and pretty patterns out this summer. A great one is their Aqua Trim Tie Halter in an aqua and chocolate polka dot pattern that pops. This suit comes with contrast chocolate brown bottoms that fit under the belly and match the chocolate trim tie and polka dots in the top. If you prefer a black contrast halter swimsuit, take a look at Prego Maternity’s Roxy Dot Tie Halter which is made in a similar style but also with a front black tie and a hip and retro pattern of bold geometric white dot clusters integrated with aqua and yellow against a black backdrop and with black bellow the belly bottoms.
If like the halter style, but find yourself needing more room in the hip and bottom area, then try out the adjustable tie style bottoms with the halter top. The Black Dot Tie Halter and Aqua Dot Tie Halter by Prego are the same style suit in different patterns – The Black Dot pattern is white dots on a black backdrop with tie black bottoms and the Aqua Dot pattern is aqua and chocolate dots on white with tie chocolate bottoms. These styles are very popular with expecting women as the bottoms fit even lower below the belly than the standard halter bottoms and the side tie sashes can be adjusted to fit throughout your whole pregnancy.
Tank Maternity Swimsuits
If you need a bit more bust support or are looking to do some serious lap swimming, many women find they are more comfortable in a supportive tank suit with adjustable straps. The Prego Maternity Ring-Kini offers wide supportive straps with rings accenting a pretty V neck and under the belly bottoms. This suit comes in both a solid aqua top with chocolate bottoms and solid black on both top and bottoms. If you are looking for a fun beachy patterned suit, take a look at the Prego Maternity Mad Hatter Tie Tankini that has both bottom ties and a matching string tie in the top along with tank straps. The Mad Hatter Pattern is a festive floral pattern in both pinkish orange combo on white with orange bottoms and an aqua green combo on white with aqua bottoms.
Strapless Minis Maternity Swimwear
If you looking to totally cover your belly, bottom and hips but want to look sexy at the same time, there is no better style than the mini. The mini allows you to show a little more skin on the top with the strapless design while hiding your middle section and simultaneously complimenting your curves. Prego’s minis comes in solid black, brown, olive and mocha as well as patterns. Check out their Black Dot Strapless Mini which is white dots set against a black backdrop on both top and bottoms, the same pattern as the Black Dot Tie Halter. Another fun pattern is the Tiki Strapless Mini with a white Hawaiian Floral pattern on red. This suit is both festive and sexy with taste. If more understated and subtle is your style, the Bali Strapless Mini is a great choice. The Bali pattern is a latte brown on cream with an intricate paisley like design that is super sexy. Most minis come with a removable halter string that can be attached around the neck for a little extra security for lap swimming. All of Prego’s suits come with a lightly padded bra for a super flattering look both in and out of the water.
So, go ahead and step out on the pool or beach in a suit that suits your personal style and compliments your shape. Remember don’t try to squeeze into a pre-pregnancy suit after your first month or two of pregnancy because you will only be uncomfortable and constricted all over. Go ahead and invest in a well made maternity suit that allows you to enjoy your pregnancy in style and that will last you all summer long.
