Maternity swimwear to make you look amazing on the beach

If you and your beautiful bump are beach-bound this summer, you’ll want to look good and feel confident while keeping things comfy. Flattering swimsuits, versatile tankinis and blissful cover-ups are the way to go: just add flip-flops and SPF.

Baroque print tankini and briefs (£24 and £14,

Such a fresh, pretty pattern will look stunning against sunkissed skin. The cups have no padding so you’ll stay cool on super-hot days.

Spot swimsuit (£14 at

Retro styling + plenty of coverage = the perfect maternity swimsuit. It won’t ride up either, thanks to adjustable ties on the legs. An absolute winner at that price.

Rosa Lee ombre dress (£27,

Trapeze in shape and rich in summery blues, this gorgeous dress is perfect to slip on when you want that extra bit of cover.

Polka dot tankini (£28,

This wide, extra-long tankini top should see you right through your pregnancy. There’s a bra shelf for added comfort and you can pull the briefs over your bump or roll them down to fit snugly underneath.

Mosaic kaftan (£32, Principles by Ben de Lisi at

There’s a gently elasticated panel on this empire-line kaftan so you can create a little bit of shape, however big your bump. Cute pom-pom trim, too.

Kaftan (£8,

We can’t quite believe the price of this kaftan because it could easily pass as designer. That embellished deep V-neck will look amazing over swimwear. Might as well put that pregnancy cleavage to good use.

Sarong (£15,

A sarong is your best friend on holiday. It’s a skirt, shawl, scarf and maxi all in one and we love this unusual Moroccan tile pattern (there’s matching swimwear too).

Cover-up (£12,

This cheesecloth popover has an easy fit and slight crinkle so it won’t wrinkle in your suitcase. Every little helps…

Soda tankini set, (£59.90, Rosewater at

With removable foam cups, a racerback design for extra support and adjustable ruched sides, this might just be the world’s most comfortable tankini (which accounts for the price). There’s also a built-in sling for bump support and the fabric gives protection of SPF50.

Flounce bikini top and briefs (£6 and £4,

If you’ve got it, flaunt it. This apron-top bikini is ideal if you want to let your bump be the star attraction. The frill flatters your bust and balances out your curves.

Tankini (£29.99, Board Angels at

Ideal for the first and second trimesters, this modest and rather chic tankini has ruching and plenty of room, plus adjustable straps for comfort and just the right amount of lift where you need it.

Maternity print tankini and briefs (£20 and £12,

This tropical bamboo print just says ‘holiday’. From the maternity collection at Topshop, it’s simply cut and fuss-free but comfortable enough to wear all day.
Expand Image

Ruffle swimsuit (£28,

Ooh-la-la, the one-shoulder action of this swimsuit will get you extra style points on the beach. In classic black, it’s available up to size 20.

Jules maternity tankini and over-the-bump briefs (£23 and £12,

Cut with plenty of room around the bust, this is one tankini you won’t spend all day tugging back into shape. Both the straps and sides are fully adjustable. Bloat, who said bloat…?
