It’s holiday time! Getting beach body ready can be scary at the best of times but factor in either expecting a baby or having just had one and the idea of getting your kit off in public can be more than daunting.
I bought a mamalicious swimsuit when I was pregnant and actually ended up wearing it loads. Florence was back to back throughout the whole pregnancy so I swam lengths and lengths in the vain attempt of turning her. She did turn towards the end but apparently turned back to the back-to-back position during labour so came out face up. Thanks for that F!
If you’re expecting a baby, here is a round up of the best maternity swimsuits on the high street. From tankini’s to one-pieces there’s something for everyone.
There’s no denying, your body has changed after having a baby. Depending on when you had yours and the time passed will hugely effect how you look, feel and dress. Unless you were super fit before pregnancy (I definitely was not in this category) then it’s unlikely you’ll bounce straight back to a toned tum so use your swimwear wisely to make you look and feel amazing!
Handy tips to remember for swimwear:
- Wearing darker colours on the bottom half will minimise your size
- High waisted briefs hold everything in and are also good if you’re looking to conceal a c-section scar
- A sarong provides lots of coverage for walking round the beach / pool and can be worn in a multitude of ways
- M&Co and Figleaves are great for tummy control styles
- Go for a style with detachable straps or a zip front for easy access if you’re breastfeeding
