For expectant mothers, summertime can often bring about a bit of anxiety as it signifies the time has arrived for swimsuits. With changing bodies, they often do not know exactly what to wear or do not feel one hundred percent comfortable. However, with the amazing array of maternity swimwear available, there is absolutely nothing to be nervous about. One's pregnancy is a time to celebrate one's changing body and to embrace all the beauty that it brings. Maternity swimwear is chic, flattering, and designed with your growing baby bump in mind. It highlights the latest trends while ensuring that you will be comfortable all day long. Maternity tankinis are one of the most popular options, and the multitude of styles available underscores all of summer's biggest trends.
Maternity tankinis are a wonderful maternity swimwear style. They maintain the allure of a two piece swimsuit with a hint of subtle sexiness, yet provide extra coverage. The extra coverage flows gently over one's belly so as not to restrict one's growing baby bump. Tankinis also create a flattering silhouette, as the thinnest part of one's body directly underneath the bust is highlighted, creating an overall slimming look. Tankinis have two shoulder straps, which can be designed to tie as a halter or to look like two tank straps. Both of these versions of the tankini are great, as they are adjustable and provide extra support for the bust. Stylish and functional, tankinis are a fabulous option.
One trend this season which has been seen on all the swimwear runways is animal print. Fresh and fun, it spices up any swimsuit. Renowned designer Maternal America's Beaded Zebra Tankini displays this trend perfectly. The black and white zebra print is beautifully contrasted with the brown and gold beaded halter ties. The side-tie bikini bottoms allow the swimsuit to be fitted to your body exactly, while the halter straps provide extra support while framing one's face beautifully. The Jenni Monako Tribal Print Tankini, also from Maternal America, has a feathery print that fades from white to aqua. The halter straps, which culminate at an O-ring at the bust, create a beautiful neckline. With matching bottoms, this swimsuit is super cute and trendy. These swimsuits look great paired with an all-black sarong, as it balances the boldness of the pattern.
Floral prints are always a popular swimsuit option, but this year they are more prevalent than ever. Maternity swimwear designer Prego has created some gorgeous options that epitomize this swimwear trend. Their Oasis Halterista has a beautiful pattern, with sweet green, brown, and aqua flowers overlaying a horizontally striped fabric. The deep scoop neck culminates at the bust with a rectangular ring, and the halter straps, along with light padding, provide excellent bust support. For a more tropical look, the brand new Maternity V-Kini is gorgeous. Bold island-esque aqua flowers contrast beautifully against a chocolate brown background. This super flattering tankini has a unique ruched V-neck with built in bust support. With bikini bottoms that fit underneath the belly, you will look and feel your best!
Basic black is always a classic, and this season is no different. All black swimwear is stylish and subtly sexy. Prego's Skinny Mini Swimsuit is a super flattering option that is as comfortable as it is stylish. The tankini top is done in the halter fashion with little loop details. Lightly padded cups and elastic under the bust provide excellent support. Vertical seaming along the tankini provides structure as well as creating an elongating and slimming look. Polished and sleek, this is a great option for that long-awaited cruise! Prego's Black Ring-Kini is another gorgeous option. The adjustable wide straps are super supportive while the clear rings add dainty detailing. The crossover style V-neck is flattering, and the black bottoms provide excellent coverage. Always classic, a black swimsuit will never go out of style.
When pregnant, do not be afraid to show off one's new curves. By finding a swimsuit that is flattering, functional, and fully shows one's personal style, one is sure to look and feel great all day long.
