Swimsuit shopping can be stressful on a regular day. Add in pregnancy hormones and an ever-changing body, and a mom-to-be can easily feel overwhelmed. During pregnancy, anything goes. Your nine months are not a time to sacrifice style for comfort, so it's important to choose a bathing suit that you feel good in.

When it comes to choosing the right style, there are many factors to consider. Two-piece designs are easier for frequent bathroom breaks if that's a concern. Anything with adjustable sizing, side ties, or moveable straps will grow with you and provide the flexibility and comfort you need.

Here, the best maternity swimsuits.

Our Top Picks

Best One-Piece: Momo Maternity One Piece

A soft, stretchy, and stylish suit, this classic silhouette is perfect for the beach or pool. Sewn-in cups are paired with thick and wide adjustable shoulder straps for full bust support. With side seams and flattering ruching, the suit is both attractive and adjustable for a growing belly.

The 50+ UPF-rated material provides extra sun protection and is made with a four-way stretch. Sizing on this suit should be based on current bust measurements and ranges in sizes from XS to 2X, so there’s a suit for every type of body shape.

A tankini makes bathroom breaks a breeze while still providing belly coverage. A triangle faux wrap top is a classic look that never goes out of style. This suit has ruched sides and adjustable and convertible bra-like shoulder straps.

The bottoms and tops are sold separately, so you can get a custom fit and leave room for your growing bump. Sizes run from S-3X, depending on the fabric chosen, and the suit is available in 11 different fabrics - 9 solid and 2 floral.

Best for Laps: Prego Maternity Women’s Sport One-Piece

Swimming laps is an excellent full-body workout that can relieve some pressure from tired joints and muscles (as long as your medical professional approves it).

To keep up in the lap lane, you’ll want a no-fuss suit that provides comfort and support. This one-piece suit does that, although some wearers found that it did stretch by the end of their pregnancy and might not work to wear for a second pregnancy.

Best Petite Suit: GAP Maternity Tie-Back One-Piece Suit

With a sweet tropical floral print and thin straps, this maternity bathing suit won’t overwhelm a petite frame. There are lots of ways to adjust the fit of the suit. The criss-cross halter straps tie in the back and the sweetheart tie neckline both adjust for a growing bust.

There are removable soft cups and thinner straps, so this suit is best for smaller-chested women. Ruching at the sides leaves room for the belly to grow. The special tie detail at the back is both comfortable and stylish.

Best Bikini: PregO Roll Waist Bikini Set

The key to this amazing bikini set is how adjustable it is. Expecting moms can show off their baby bump while feeling comfortable and secure. Top-heavy ladies will enjoy the lift and comfort of the halter top.

The front tie is adjustable, so you can make it as tight or as loose as you need it, while the back has a hook closure. Removable cups are there for support. The roll waist bottom fits any size belly and can be rolled up for more coverage and sun protection or rolled down to show off a belly bump.

Best Style: Cut-Out Maternity One Piece

Best Suit for a Large Bust: Wolf & Whistle Maternity Suit

Well endowed women know the key to a good fitting bathing suit is a bra-sized top. This flattering, v-neck, black one-piece has a bra-sized fit, adjustable straps, and a back clasp closure to provide the most supportive, comfortable, and adjustable fit for a growing bustline.

The side ruching and textured fabric make for a stylish suit. Even better, the fabric is made from recycled polyester, which saves water and energy. It's a stylish and eco-friendly choice.

Best Tankini: Maternity Drawstring Swim Top

A versatile tankini top, this suit comes in both classic stripes and a tropical floral print. It’s super flattering and very supportive. The blouson-style top will show off your curves but in a more modest way. There are removable straps if you don’t want tan lines and prefer a strapless neckline.

Soft molded cups provide ample bust support and drawcord ties on either side let you get a perfect fit. This one is also great for postpartum wear since it is flattering, forgiving, and provides good coverage. Choose any color bottoms to pair with the stripes or flowers.

Best Swim Shorts: Mermaid Maternity Swim Shorts

If you prefer more coverage from your swim bottoms or are especially active (go you!), swim shorts are the solution. These shorts are made of chlorine-resistant fabric and have an attached inner panty for added comfort.

Wear the fold-over panel up over the belly or rolled down to sit under the belly. For the right fit, order your pre-pregnancy size. And don’t forget to add a top to your order or choose one from another site (these are only bottoms!).

Best Swim Dress: Kimi and Kai Swim Dress

For some moms-to-be, a swim dress is a key to fashion and comfort. This black one-piece brings both of those elements to the pool or beach. The A-line shape has a wrap-style bodice and belly-covering dress.

Thick straps are adjustable and comfortable, ensuring you get a perfect fit and the soft, sewn-in cups provide bust support. You’ll look great twirling (carefully) around the pool in this number, but give yourself a few extra minutes to go to the bathroom since this is a one-piece.

Best for a Laugh: Mamagama Baby Watch Bathing Suit

For fans of Baywatch or a mom-to-be with a sense of humor, this chic stop-sign red suit will help her stand out in the summer crowd.

This suit is best for those who don't need a lot of bust support. It’s lined and has side ruching at the belly, but there's no extra padding at the top.
