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 not to get out and have fun in 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. 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.


Why is Curvy maternity swimwear a favourite amongst new mums?


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.


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 fromadjustable 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.


Find the perfect maternity swimwear style for you with Curvy!


Curvy’smaternity swimsuits are available in many different styles, colours and designs to suit your personal taste. To keep you feeling on top of all the latest trends, we’ve designed a complete maternity range that’s perfect for every mum and mum to be.


Swim Dress:


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 lady 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.


They 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.


Prints:


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.

Curvy Swimwear Size Chart

All of our swimsuits are true to size. This means you should follow your normal sizing. The best guide is your underwear, what you would wear in a bra is the size you would order from us.  For example in you were a 18E bra you are a 18 in our swimsuits.

If you are between sizes say a 18E bra and a 20 underpants, we recommend going up to the larger of the two sizes, so a size 20 in this case. 

If you are buying chlorine resistant swimwear, we recommend going up a size as the fabric is a little bit firmer. 

Any issues, Curvy Swimwear is happy to help you find the right swimsuit for you!
