Fashionista’s guide to maternity swimsuits
June 23, 2009
How can you be the cute mom-to-be at the beach or pool? Follow our tips to help you find a suit that flatters your new pregnancy curves.
Prints: Keep in mind that prints, such as florals or polka-dots, highlight while solid-colored fabrics minimize. Feel free to wear prints when you are pregnant, just make sure they are a smaller print or balanced out with solids. The Maternal America Maternity Jenni Tankini ($98, Nordstrom.com) features prints that are flattering and feminine.
One piece, bikini or tankini: Whether you want to show a little skin or a lot, today’s maternity swimsuits are designed to flatter your pregnancy curves. In fact, a bikini is the perfect way to show off your beautiful baby bump!
Flattering cut: Look for a top that is supportive and covers your pregnancy cleavage. A halter swimsuit top is flattering on most pregnant women. Maternity bottoms should be cut to wear under your belly for added comfort.
