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 your body changes and you try to get your groove back. We want to help you find the best post maternity swimwear for you so you can not only look good but feel great too. 

Turquoise Snake 3 Tier Tankini Top

Tummy Support

You're going to want to find a post-maternity swimsuit that offers plenty of support in the bust and mid section. Luckily for you, all of our swimwear is lined to offer excellent tummy control. Some designs also feature power mesh for added compression. You need your swimsuit to fit well, without squeezing or pinching, so we've designed our swimwear with curves in mind, using soft fabrics that offer the right amount of stretch.

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.

Our post mastectomy swimsuit styles offer plenty of room for fuller busts with removeable straps to assist with breastfeeding. You'll feel wonderfully supported with adequate coverage in our flattering swim designs. 

Navy Floral Swing Tankini Top

Adjustable Straps

Choose a swimsuit 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.

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.

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. ideally, you don't want to wear 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.

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.
