Maternity Swimsuits - Taking 'the Bump' for a swim

Swimming is a wonderful way for a woman to exercise during pregnancy. It is better than other forms of exercise because it makes the woman feel weightless.

So, if you’re bump is beginning to show where should you go to buy maternity swimsuits?


Tankinis make ideal maternity bathing suits because they are two-piece. The materials used in this type of swimwear are stretchy and soft. They are fitted and cut to the pregnant figure and designed to flatter a pregnant woman’s curves. Patterns or darker colours can disguise the bump or you could take the other tact and buy something summery and colourful to celebrate the pregnancy.
