The Best Maternity Swimsuits

Last updated on February 5th, 2024 at 05:10 pm

So you’re pregnant (possibly with twins) and you want to know the best maternity swimsuits for this summer. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here’s our list of the best pregnancy bathing suits for 2022 from a twin mama who knew all about pregnancy in the summer!

I had to endure the fiery depths of summer hell, during both of my pregnancies (once while carrying twins!). Finding the right maternity swimsuit and then going to the local pool were my best friends those two summers. So if you’re like I was during my twin pregnancy, you’re dealing with rising temperatures and a growing belly. And all you want is to cool off. That’s why you should consider treating yourself to a gorgeous maternity swimsuit, so you can take a dip in style and comfort.

Do I Have to Wear a Maternity Swimsuit?

It is possible to wear your pre-pregnancy bathing suit when you’re expecting (especially during the first trimester), but you might find a maternity swimsuit is more comfortable. Maternity bathing suits are designed to accommodate your growing shape and help you feel both comfortable and confident. Swimsuits for pregnancy are made with stretchier materials, they have a softer belly, and the fit is more likely to be correct.

No matter where you’re at in your pregnancy, you can find a great swimsuit to dress your baby bump for the much-needed pool day!

What to Look For in a Maternity Swimsuit

When it comes to any maternity clothing, the main thing you need to keep in mind is comfort. A maternity swimsuit should be no different. If you’re not comfortable, then you’re not going to wear it. But trust me, you’ll want to. Just imagine the weightless relaxation you’ll feel as you’re floating in the ocean or pool. During those hot summer days, nothing does a pregnant body better than a dip in a cool body of water. Except maybe ice cream.


Comfort comes in different shapes and sizes, just like pregnant bellies. You may prefer a stretchy material, but maybe your pregnant friend is looking for something more supportive with a slight compression feel. Find what works best for you in a pregnancy bathing suit. After all, it’s your body.

Bust Support

Remember, that comfort also means support and coverage for your growing bust. Most likely, you will need more room and support than you did before being pregnant.

When looking for a maternity swimsuit focus on Comfort.


Your maternity swimsuit should be snug (but not tight) and offer a level of  support you feel good in. Your swimsuit should also fit well. It’s important you feel confident and comfortable when wearing it, and never restricted.


If you’re looking for a maternity swimsuit that provides a lot of comfort, it’s important to pay attention to the materials it’s made from. Be sure to touch the material to see if it is thick and soft. Hold it up to the light. Can you see your hand through it? Try stretching the suit in every direction, testing to see if it returns to its original shape. All of these will help you determine if the swimsuit is made from quality materials.

Styles and Patterns

I know when you are pregnant, you just want to look cute and accentuate your baby bump in the best way. In that case, you may want to stay away from new fashion trends that might not flatter your changing body, especially if you’re in your later trimesters. It might be best to stick with the same kinds of styles you wore pre-pregnancy. Of course, be daring if that’s what makes you feel good. After all, what’s most important is your confidence, comfort, and joy when you’re choosing a bathing suit, pregnant or not.
