There are lots of things you need to look for when it comes to post-maternity swimwear. You may feel a little bit insecure as the baby weight hangs around and you try to find your groove back. We wanted to help you find the best post maternity swimwear for you so you can not only look great but feel great too. 

swimsuits for all 

  1. Finding tummy support: You're going to want to find a post-maternity swimsuit that offers plenty of support in the bust and tummy region. Luckily for you, all of our swimwear has power mesh and tummy control. We don't want you squeezing or pinching to get into a swimsuit, we want you to look and feel amazing as you rock your post-maternity swimsuit. Look for fabrics that have a thin mesh lining because that offers extra support.
  2. Bust support: If you buy a post-maternity swimsuit with an underwire for support, check that the wire is well padded so it doesn't cut into your skin. Similarly, if the suit has a shelf bra make sure the elastic isn't too tight. We want you to feel comfortable as you enjoy your next holiday or local pool swim. 
  3. Adjustable straps: Choose a suit that fits your body properly. If you are longer or shorter in the body make sure that you are catering for your length. You will want to make sure that the straps don't dig into your shoulders. If that happens, the suit is definitely too short for your body and you will need another swimsuit.
  4. Coverage: Make sure you're comfortable with the amount of coverage your post-maternity swimwear offers. To put it simply, there is really nothing more annoying than a swimsuit that keeps riding up or moving around. We really don't want you in a post-maternity swimsuit that you are having to tug at constantly. Your post maternity swimwear should comfortably cover your bottom and bust while you move, bend, and sit.
  5. Leg and bum coverage: A good suit will have leg openings that fit comfortably without squeezing. If the elastic is too tight, it will cause marks and chafing. Look for elastic that holds, but doesn't cut.
  6. Added features: If the suit has straps, make sure they're adjustable and have adequate padding. This is especially important if your breasts are large, because the straps can cut painfully into your shoulders if they're not properly padded or adjusted.

Size guide

All of our swimsuits are true to size. This means you should follow your normal sizing.

The best guide is your underwear - so what you would wear in a bra and undies is the size you order from us in tops and bottoms. For example, in you wear an 18E bra, you should order a size 18 swimsuit top from us.

If you are looking for a one piece and are in between sizes, say an 18E bra and a 20 in underpants, we recommend choosing the larger of the two sizes - so a size 20 in this case.

If you have any issues with your new swimsuit, we do 30 day refunds for full priced items and exchanges for all items - so you can swap to a size or style that is more suitable for you!
