Summer is here, which means it’s time to start the search for the best maternity swimsuit for you and your baby bump so you can hit the beach, splash in the pool or lounge lake-side in style. And good news, mamas: There’s plenty of stylish maternity swimwear to choose from. Even better news? The number of pregnancy bathing suits you’ll have to try on just got shorter, thanks to this curated list of the best maternity swimsuits around. From maternity bikinis to tankinis, one-pieces and more, we’ve found the cutest styles in maternity swimwear to suit any mom-to-be.

Best Maternity Bikinis

While some mamas-to-be love the coverage that a maternity one-piece swimsuit provides, others are ready to show off that bump—and there’s no better way to do that than with a maternity bikini! You might be able to shimmy into a regular bikini, but a maternity bikini is designed to be a little stretchier both on the top and on the bottom. Because your body is evolving, your maternity swimwear needs to be ready to change too! Here are five of the cutest maternity bikinis around.

PregO Maternity Wear Women’s Maternity Roll Waist Dot Bikini Set

We’re dotty for this polka dot maternity swimsuit. If you’re not a fan of low-waisted bikini bottoms, this one is for you: you can keep the waist high for more belly coverage or roll it down beneath your baby bump. The halter top has an adjustable back and an adjustable front tie to help you get the perfect fit. Best of all, you can wear this cute bikini even after pregnancy.

Buy it: Starting at $68, Amazon.com

Seraphine Nautical Stripe Adjustable Maternity Bikini

HATCH The Santorini Bikini

It’s like your favorite ribbed tank…but make it a bathing suit. This sporty maternity swimsuit in Grecian blue is made from a super soft material, with a wide back band and straps for extra comfort. It even slips on over the head, making getting dressed super-simple even in the third trimester.

Best Maternity Tankinis

Next up, the maternity tankini—or, as we like to call it, the best of both worlds. Just like in the non-maternity swimwear world, a tankini gives you the coverage of a one-piece but with easy-to-remove bottoms—all the more crucial if you’re pregnant and frequently need the ladies’ room! Check out our favorite maternity tankinis from top maternity swimsuit brands.
