Stylish maternity swimwear (no matter how pregnant you are)

    Forget any preconceptions you have about pregnancy style on the beach. First off, you don’t have to cover up in a sack-shaped sarong just because you have a bump (but by all means, do lather on the SPF). Secondly, and this might come as a bit of a shock but, *whispers it* you can actually wear bikinis too.

    That’s right, if you’ve got it, flaunt it, is our motto, and there are plenty of stylish bikinis to suit every stage of your pregnancy. We love Nine In The Mirror’s elegant one-shoulder powder pink bikini set, or Cache Coeur’s fun heart print design.

    However, if swimsuits are more up your street, there are plenty of those too. From the classic black halterneck (try the Séraphine and Marks & Spencer designs) to striped nautical designs (we love the Yummy Mummy one), there are shapes and prints to suit every personality.

    More importantly, hopefully you’re shopping for new swimwear because you’re going on an exotic holiday, and if you can’t make a statement on the beach, where can you? With this in mind, try loud prints and bold colours, especially as they look SO much better on a tan.
