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.

maternity bikiniThis is especially important if you are planning on wearing a maternity bikini or maternity tankini as these cover the bump even less and a tankini can ride up when swimming so extra protection is essential around these parts. 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.

Choosing Your Maternity Swimwear

Maternity Tankini from Simply BeachSwimming is an ideal activity to do when you are pregnant as it is one of the only times that you can truly relax and get rid of the heavy feeling that you get as your body grows.

Whether you are going to power lengths in the local swimming pool every day or just want to go for a quick dip on your holiday, having the right swimwear when you are pregnant can make you look and feel great.

Even the most modest of women can really go to town on their maternity swimwear. Though you may be concerned whether you ‘look big in this’ usually, you can be rest assured that everyone is going to think you look big when you are pregnant but will also think you look amazing. As your bump grows it will change your body shape and give you extra definition that will look fantastic in the right kind of swimwear and you can show off your big, beautiful body like never before.

Whatever body shape you are before your pregnancy, most of us turn into some kind of Pear shape or Curvy shape during pregnancy. The bottom half is always going to get bigger during pregnancy and hopefully your top half will too.

When you are choosing your swimwear make sure that you select your pre-pregnancy dress size. Maternity costumes are tailored to incoroporate your growing body so choose the correct size for you to make sure that your costume provides the support and definition required in all the right places.

If you already have  a curvy figure or a larger bust then choose a costume with support for your bust to ensure that as you get bigger, your bust is going to stay in place and look great. A halterneck tie will give you the support you need to ensure that you don’t move around and integrated support in the top of the costume will ensure that you have the definition you need as you grow.

Maternity Bikini from VertbaudetIf you are opting for a bikini, then the world is your oyster. With a bump in the middle, your top and bottom half are going to look smaller than ever which means that you can go for the brighter colours and funkier patterns which can bring your bottom and top too close together when you don’t have the bump to divide them.

We love this maternity bikini from Vertbaudet. With the halterneck support and bust darts to really define your bust, this bikini comes with wider bottoms to keep you confident in your costume and cover up any bumps in that region and to cover the shadows of any developing stretch marks.

If you are concerned that you don’t want your tummy exposed as you are pregnant but want all the benefits of a bikini, then why not opt for a maternity tankini.

Tankinis come in many lengths when you are pregnant so you can opt for a longer top that is going to cover your entire bump or you can opt for a more standard length which will create some cover but you will still be able to see a hint of your bump as you grow. Which ever length you opt for, remember that your top is going to ride up as you get bigger, so a longer top at the beginning may be a good idea. After all you can always ruch it up if you would like more of your tummy exposed.

Maternity Tankini from M2B at Mothercare SwimwearWhatever length you go for, consider choosing a tankini with tie sides that will grow with you as you near your term and will decrease again after the pregnancy until you are ready to get back into your standard swimsuit.

The M2b Maternity Tankini from Mothercare is a perfect example of this. With a long length front for coverage and tie sides for adjustment, this tankini will stay with you throughout your pregnancy and continue supporting you after the baby is born.

With shelf support for your bust integrated into the top of this costume, the cross knot design means that it is quick and easy to nurse your baby in this costume, ensuring that you can wear this costume for as long as you like after the birth.

The under the bump bottoms give a little support to your bump as you can grow but if you don’t like the gap in the costume you can simply pull the top down lower for cover.

Maternity Swimsuit from Marks and SpencersThe same rules you use for choosing your bikini or tankini still apply when you are looking at an all in one costume. Look for padding, support and a halterneck if you need further support to your bust and opt for a ruched style that has room to grow in the stomach area. If you remain flatter chested, opt for a costume with smaller straps or a balcony effect which will define your bust but avoid under wire support which can reduce the development of your milk production.

This Halterneck Maternity Swimsuit from Marks and Spencers is ideal. With contrasting straps which draw the eye upwards, the ruched effect on the tummy hides any lumps and bumps at the side whilst perfectly contouring your bump. And the hidden support and optional cups mean that you have the definition and support for your bust which can be taken out if you find yourself becoming too top heavy.

We have a great range of maternity swimwear on our site to suit every body shape during your pregnancy as well as offers and voucher codes to make your purchase even better value for money. So take a browse through our site and choose the swimwear for you.
