When we are looking for maternity swimwear, one of the most difficult choices is not what swimwear to opt for, but when you should start wearing it. Though most of us are incredibly keen to get in our maternity swimwear and show off our bumps in the prenatal swimming classes as soon as possible, at the same time you don’t want to be the woman who has jumped in too quickly and has a little droop where her bump should be.

Marks and Spencers Maternity SwimwearWell the new maternity swimwear range from Marks and Spencers will go a long way to stopping this dreadful dilemma with the introduction of tide side fasteners in their latest maternity swimsuit. Pull the ties tightly and the suit will draw in, giving you a flatter costume that looks as if it fits perfectly even in the early stages of pregnancy. Let the ties out throughout your pregnancy and you havea costume that is going to continue to fit you for as long as you want to be wearing it.

And after your baby is born, follow the same pattern in reverse and you have a costume that is going to continue to fit until you are ready to attempt your pre pregnancy swimwear again.

And though this swimwear is incredibly functional, with padding, lining, detachable strap and the extra stretch you need in a good maternity swimming costume, it has also been created to look great too. The intelligent design actually flatters your body shape, neatly drawing you in at the waist and carrying attention up the body to balance out your body shape even as you near the end of your pregnancy.

The detachable strap means that you have a costume that looks great both in the pool and on the beach and at only £29.50, it won’t break the bank to buy it.

Though you won’t find maternity swimwear in many of the M&S stores, their range of swimwear and maternity clothes in general is fantastic. So take a look today and see the full range of maternity wear available from M&S.

Keeping protected from the sun while wearing maternity swimwear

With the summer holidays on their way and many expectant mums visiting places where the sun will shine we have some advice to protect yourself in the heat. We would advise you wear even stronger SPF sun cream to protect your skin from the damage that can be done by the sun’s rays. One of the reasons for using the extra high protection factor is that when pregnant the skin is more sensitive and is also stretched over those expanding beautiful bumps.

Even if you are planning on wearing a maternity swimsuit it is wise to apply a high factor sun cream underneath as the sun can penetrate the material and any sun burn will be even more painful and damaging to the sensitive thinner skin. So whatever maternity swimwear you choose remember the sun tan lotion.

Also remember to apply the sun cream at regular intervals and it is a great idea to apply the lotion at least 30 minutes before venturing out into the sun to give it time to soak in and have the maximum effect.

So if you are venturing abroad take extra care in the sun and remember to keep applying sun tan lotion as often as possible and at least every two hours. With the extra moisturiser contained it will also help keep your skin supple and glowing. We would also recommend investing in a hat as this keeps the heat off of your head which keeps you cooler when enjoying hotter weather.

Let’s just hope the sun comes back here in the UK so pregnant ladies can enjoy a bit of sunshine in the garden or the local park. However also be aware that while the sun may not seem as strong in the UK it is still strong enough to cause skin damage so remember to still apply sun cream even if it doesn’t seem hot enough or the sun isn’t shining as much.
