What to Look for When Buying Maternity Swimwear

Being pregnant is probably the single most exciting (and frightening) time in your life. There’s so much to think about and prepare for before the little one comes, not to mention adapting to the wonderful changes your body is going through.

There’s no excuse for avoiding the water while your baby grows and your body changes. And you’ll want to play as much as you can with your little water baby once they arrive.

Having maternity swimwear that works for you throughout your journey will make it easy to enjoy the beach and pool.

 Whether you’ve just had a baby, or you’ve got one on the way, every mum and mum-to-be deserves to feel fabulous before, during and after the big day.

If you are looking for maternity swimwear you have come to the right place. Our selection of maternity swimsuits range from one piece bathers, tankini and bikini options. Curvy Swimwear offers adaptable, functional swimwear for the style conscious that we know you will love through pregnancy and beyond. 

Our Maternity Swimwear Range

Our maternity swimwear range is the best for many reasons. Not only are they completely supportive and comfortable but they are also designed to last and look good. They have features such as shelf bras, fit up to a G cup, adjustable and removable straps as well as stomach ruching and power mesh. All of these features are to ensure that you look and feel great. They really are the best maternity swimsuits on the market, just ask our many customers.

Best Selling Maternity Styles

Of all our fabulous maternity styles, our gorgeous mums-to-be can get enough of our 3 tier ruffle tankini top. This style is perfect for every stage of your pregnancy. The cascading ruffles are great for camouflaging a new bump or for wearing post pregnancy when you want a little more coverage. One pieces with a lot of stretch through the mid-section include our tie front one piece and twist front bandeau one piece. The bandeau is perfect for wearing post pregnancy for an easy breastfeeding option.  

Shopping for Maternity Swimwear

To help you feel beautiful and wonderfully confident in the water, Curvy have designed a range of flattering maternity swimwear to enhance both your comfort and confidence.

Power Mesh

Our powerful Power Mesh lining and styles are cut in exactly the right places and all of our comfortable fabric works wonders to smooth your shape in seconds.

Get ready to flaunt your beautiful baby body in our maternity swimwear designed to complement your shape and fit all of your styling needs.

The Power Mesh in our maternity swimwear will also make you feel supported once your baby arrives. Confidently holding everything in place so you can concentrate on having fun with your little one instead.

Try our twist front bandeau one piece in a variety of plain colours and beautiful prints.

Wider straps

During pregnancy, support is everything! Our maternity swimwear is designed with wider straps to ensure that your bust is supported all day long.

Especially for bustier women, thin straps tend to dig into your shoulders and stretch as your lady bits grow. This also means the girls aren’t getting anywhere near the support they need!

With Curvy’s thick and durable maternity swimwear range, you’ll be swimming, walking and playing around with the kids without a care.

The wider straps on our maternity swimwear look classic and chic while giving you the support and security you need when getting out there and having fun.

Adjustable straps

Ultimate comfort comes from adjustable straps. After a long day of being strapped in, many mums like to lie back and loosen the straps to enjoy a little down time (literally).

For a little extra support, Curvy mums also love that they can easily cross the straps at the back. This helps to lift your bust and give you a more secure fit.

We’ve thought of everything when it comes to maternity swimwear, so there’s one less thing you have to worry about.

Shelf Bras

Not a fan of the underwire? Neither! Shelf bras are softer and more comfortable, providing a fantastic alternative to the dreaded wire. Think sports bra comfort! They are extremely supportive and comfortable to wear all day long.

Swim Dresses

Along with Power Mesh lining, swim dress swimsuits have an additional fabric panel for extra tummy coverage. They have a one-piece swimsuit underneath and dress over the top, allowing you to move around freely.

The extra fabric works wonders to give you a glorious style and shape around your mummy tummy. What’s more, the black panelling on either side of our swim dresses give a wonderfully slimming look!

Flirty and feminine, the swim dress, in a print or plain, is yet another great option for your maternity swimwear wardrobe.



Maternity Tankini Tops

Love a tankini? No problem! For an overall flattering effect, try out a feminine swing tankini that features a skirted A-lined top.

You’ll be the most stylish Mumma at the beach! Choose a high waist bottom that sits comfortably on your natural waist for ideal coverage and control.

Perfect for those needing different sizes from top to bottom and transitioning to your post pregnancy body. Tankinis also have the added benefit of being easy to take on or off. This can be a life saver for a mum of little ones.

With the option to mix and match styles and prints with our tankini options, there is a maternity swimwear style to suit every body.

Frill Sleeve One Pieces

Frill sleeves are another one of our all-time favourites! Featuring a zipper down the front of the swimsuit, these are perfect for holding the girls in or for breastfeeding when your bub is born.

They also provide a little extra sun protection which is always a bonus in our books.

Our frill sleeve one-pieces also feature ruching across the tummy with Power Mesh to keep you feeling supported and comfortable. We have thought of everything with the frill sleeve maternity swimwear.

This maternity swimwear comes in plain black and navy as well as prints like crane birds, embroidered roses and mosaic aqua. The frill sleeve swimsuits look great worn with a sarong or skirt if you’re heading to lunch or dinner after the beach.

Forget what you may have heard about printed maternity clothes... It’s time to give our pretty prints a try! With styles, patterns and motifs ranging from floral and geometric to bold colours and more, we’ve got the perfect print to suit your personality.

Consider our maternity swimsuits a work of art on your beautiful curves!

Printed fabrics are a new mum’s best friend. They can hide a multitude of baby accidents and spills. And they inject some much needed playfulness into your wardrobe, when you may not be feeling particularly energetic. 

Post Pregnancy Swimwear

Once you have had your baby our maternity bathers are great for breastfeeding. We offer a range of swimwear that has a small zipper down your bust that can be used while feeding. We have so many happy customers telling us how easy and great this feature is. It is so helpful to have these types of swimsuits of use during your pregnancy. We want you to be the most comfortable and relaxed as possible during this time. Try our off the shoulder styles for easy breastfeeding access too.
