Best Maternity Swimsuit For Comfort
A Pea in the Pod Rib Knit Maternity One Piece Swimsuit ($76, originally $108)
This maternity bathing suit is made up of a soft rib knit material, making the suit both flexible and comfortable. It has a UPF (sun protection) of 50+, adjustable straps, and removable pads to make sure that you feel at ease and supported at all times, depending on your needs.
Best Ruched Maternity Bathing Suit
Our favorite part of this maternity swimsuit is the ruching that goes down the sides, and ends in a cute tie. The feature means the swimsuit will grow and grow and grow with your belly, and the adjustable bows are as cute as they are functional.
Best Maternity Swimsuit for Nursing
This suit is made up of a colorful long sleeve tankini rash guard top and striped briefs. It has extra UPF 50 to protect you and your bump, a front zipper that allows for easy nursing access, and flexible bottoms that can be worn either over top your bump or folded underneath. This suit is great for pregnancy but can also be used postpartum.
Best Maternity Tankini
This adorable gingham bikini is perfect for a family beach outing. The suit comes with extra UPF 50 sun protection, and is made up of flexible nylon and spandex so you can pull it over your belly depending on how much coverage you're feeling that day. Additionally, its square neck cut gives you a little more coverage.
Best Underwire Maternity Swimsuit
Swimsuits that use underwire for support and part of the design have been growing in popularity for a couple years now, and Isabel Maternity brings the style to pregnant swimmers and sunners with this tie-front one-piece. The side cut-outs and underwire feel fresh and modern, but the high waist and one-piece design ensure it stays in place and keeps you supported.
Best V-Neck Maternity Swimsuit
This dainty, ruffled bathing suit is perfect for those days when you just need an extra something to feel more confident. The ruffled v-neck neckline is very flattering, in addition to the full coverage of the belly and sides, and medium coverage in the back. The suit is fully lined and has removable cups for shaping and support.
Best One-Piece Maternity Swimsuit
This incredibly chic swimsuit is perfect for your next European vacation — or your next backyard pool day. It delivers all the comfort and security of a standard one-piece, but has a very flattering crossover v-neck neckline, side ruching, and the stylish tie in the back. The navy blue and white colors create a very minimalistic, nautical look. Additionally, the ruching on the side can adjust the suit as you go through all stages of your pregnancy.
Most Affordable Maternity Bathing Suit
This cute purple one piece is one of the more affordable maternity bathing suits. It's fully lined and has adjustable straps and full coverage on the back. It's very simple and minimalistic, yet gets the job done. It has extra lining along the bottom of the swimsuit, so you feel extra secure.
Best Maternity Bathing Suit for All Trimesters
This stretchy suit is perfect to wear for all three trimesters, and also after your pregnancy is over. It is high coverage and high rise, and has an elasticated waist that allows you to adjust how high or low you want your bottoms to sit. The material also moves and adjusts to your body, and smooths and sculpts your belly and skin so you can feel and look your most confident. It pairs well with the matching Good American Maternity Always Fits Scoop Neck Bra ($59).
Best Modest Maternity Bathing Suit
This swim top is great for modesty, but also sun protection. The suit has built in UPF 50+ and keeps you feeling cool and safe in the sun. It has side ruching so you can make sure that the fit is snug and comfortable, no matter what stage of pregnancy you are experiencing. This is also a suit that can definitely be worn and used long after your baby has arrived.
Best High-Neck Maternity Tankini
This blue high neck halter top tankini is great for when you're not in the mood to wear a bikini, but don't want to deal with taking a one piece off to go to the bathroom. This suit has a high neckline with adjustable straps, ruched sides, and removable pads. The nylon and spandex material, in addition to the ruching, allows this top to fit both comfortably and snug.
Best Off-the-Shoulder Maternity Bathing Suit
This floral suit is perfect for your next pool party with friends or family.
