Shopping for swimwear in itself can be overwhelming, but for soon-to-be mothers, it can become even more of a task. However, there is an array of maternity swimwear that offers all sorts of support, coverage and comfortability that leaves women feeling confident while rocking their growing belly. At BeachCandy, our swimwear also serves as maternity swimsuits because they are handcrafted to fit every body type, even during the many stages of pregnancy.
Being pregnant does not limit you to only maternity bathing suits because BeachCandy offers many swimwear styles that are designed to be adjusted to each individual’s body type. BeachCandy swimwear can easily be adjusted into maternity swim no matter if you are relaxing by the pool or on a beach vacation and tackles many support, coverage and comfort concerns.
Here are some of our favorite swimwear combinations and swim styles that serve as the best maternity bikinis for our new and soon-to-be mamas:
The ELYSIA Slimming One Piece Swimsuit is a suitable one piece that provides full coverage, but accentuates every curve thanks to its ruched sides. The bust line offers support in the front which allows for busy mothers to move about without feeling uncomfortable and has Swarovski Crystal Candy attached at the front of the straps for a touch of elegance. The scoop detail in the back also exposes just enough skin for a sexy feel, but still offers modest coverage. This one piece is also lightweight in fabric and comfortably hugs growing bumps.
This bikini top is also the best for those with a fuller chest especially during pregnancy because your body constantly changes during this wonderful time and this bikini top helps to boost your confidence as you continue to see your body change right before your eyes. Swarovski Crystal Candy lines the bust line for added sparkle.
Pair this bikini with the MADDY High Leg High Waisted Bikini Bottom which helps to elongate the legs and provides extra tummy control to emulate a retro chic style. These high waist bottoms do not chafe at the waist and are made of stretchy material that easily conforms to each and every curve. So no matter how big your bump is, this swim bottom is snug on your tummy for support, but also allows you to move comfortably.
The ALEXA Triangle Bikini Top is a cult classic amongst our BeachCandy Babes and is perfect to wear during all stages of pregnancy (and after of course!). What makes this triangle bikini top different from other triangle bikini tops is the Swarovski Crystal Candy that lines the bust and the optional push up pads that offers the option for extra support or if you simply want a little more lift. This top is also bump-friendly because it has adjustable tie straps and can be adjusted to sit just above growing bumps all the while providing the right coverage in the chest area.
Pair this bikini top with the matching ALEXA String Bikini Bottom which has adjustable straps on the side that can be done up according to where you want the bottom to sit on your hips with the option of full coverage or cheeky coverage. Swarovski Crystal Candy can also be found on the ends of the ties for extra bling!
Bikinis with adjustable straps are best for those who may be indecisive with the fit of their swimwear because there are days when you want to be a little more covered and there are other days when you want to show off just a little more. The ALEXA style is the perfect confidence booster for those indecisive days because it can easily be tailored to your body as you begin to show more during pregnancy.
The SOPHIA Ruffle Tankini is the perfect option for a maternity tankini especially for bumps that are growing by the minute! This tankini swimsuit is ideal for support with removable padding. The ruffle layers of this top is fun and flirty and provides full tummy coverage with an open back.
Pair this tankini top with the SKYLER Slimming Bikini Bottoms which is a seamless classic that provides tummy support and provides modest coverage. Because of its seamless style, this swim bottom is made to have that extra bit of security and is best for when moms are constantly moving about especially during the 2nd trimester when the bump becomes more prominent.
The RACHEL Supportive Halter Bikini Top provides supportive lift in the chest with Swarovski Candy Sliders that rests perfectly on the bust. This sexy take on a halter bikini has a modest plunging neckline with adjustable neck and back ties to control the fit of the bikini. This top is also great to wear when you want to show off that bump.
Pair this bikini top with the RACHEL Cheeky Boyshort Bikini Bottom is known for its comfortability and flatters every bottom beautifully with Swarovski Crystal Candy on the back hips. This bottom provides tummy coverage, but can easily be adjusted at the hips to comfortably sit underneath growing baby bumps. This bottom is a wardrobe staple because it can easily be paired with other bikini styles.
Other than swimwear, you also can’t forget about swimwear coverups! When you find yourself needing a little something to drape over your beautiful pregnancy body after a day out by the water, BeachCandy has got you covered with some of the best cover ups that can elevate your beachy look.
The ANGELICA Sheer Cover Up is perfect to have when you still want to show off that baby bump thanks to its sheer fabric. The flowiness of this coverup adds the perfect flair to every swimwear, but can also be worn outside of the poolside or the beach. It is very lightweight and does not feel heavy on the body so that our mamas can easily move about without the fabric getting in the way.
The DONATELLA Wrap Cover Up Dress is a maxi length wrap dress that can be worn open or closed thanks to the belt strap for easy adjustment at the waist. When wrapped closed, there is a sexy slit that helps to show off some leg and fittingly hugs every curve. This dress features a luxurious print and has short sleeves that can also be dressed up for a dinner or date night look. The longevity of wrap cover ups are perfect for soon-to-be mamas because the fit can be adjusted as your bump continues to grow and can be worn after pregnancy.
The MARIA Long Sarong Wrap is great for those who need something quick and easy to throw on over their swimsuit. This lightweight mesh wrap can either be worn as a dress or a skirt and can be tied according to where you want the wrap to sit. This wrap is baby bump friendly and is easy to work with and has become a staple for all our BeachCandy mamas.
At BeachCandy, we strive to make sure that all our BeachCandy babes, including our soon-to-be mothers, find the perfect swimwear that makes them look and feel their best. BeachCandy takes pride in handcrafting each and every piece to ensure the best fit for all body types. Each style is carefully tailored to provide the best form of support, comfort, and coverage, especially for those who are starting their journey into motherhood.
