Heading to the pool and need some modest maternity swimwear? I’ve compiled the best modest maternity swimwear options from around the web just for you!
You know what’s great about being able to buy clothes online? No matter where you live or what the weather’s like, you can find clothes for any season.
For instance, in Texas, we all want to wear winter boots in October because we’re so ready for the sizzling summer heat to be over. So us stay-at-home moms jump on our computers and start the online search ASAP, even though it probably won’t be cold enough to really wear the boots until January.
Here’s why I think this is awesome. I’m planning a girls’ trip with my sisters and mom for this upcoming summer in the middle of July. We’re going to Denver, and it’s going to be plenty hot enough that we’ll want to take advantage of our AirBnB’s pool or go to a water park and we can all sport our best modest swimsuits.
Since my husband and I are planning on trying for baby #4 soon, this means I may or may not be pregnant in the summer when this trip happens. However, I tossed the last maternity swimsuit I had from Target because after wearing it for 3 pregnancies, it was basically down to threads.
The cool thing about living in 2018 is that you can find modest maternity swimwear no matter the time of year! So I can browse a whole bunch of online retailers and find something that I like even though my trip is months away.
Why modest, you say?
Well, I’m not one for showing my round bare belly at the pool. If you can rock the bikini and baby bump thing, that’s amazing! But I like to stick to modest swimsuits that cover my cleavage and my butt as much as possible. Here’s where you can find some awesome modest maternity swimsuits no matter what month you need them for!
Best Modest Maternity Swimsuits of 2018
Best Modest Maternity Swimsuits from Nordstrom
Ok, how cute is this “Kimi and Kai” swimsuit? Is has a lot of great, classic looking swimsuits that are super affordable at just $68.
I love that it’s got that vintage look, while still being cute enough to look great on any body type.
If you burn easily, or feel like your arms get huge when you’re pregnant, then I also really like this cute maternity rashguard swimsuit from the same line!
Best Modest Maternity Swimwear from Motherhood Maternity
Motherhood’s maternity swimwear consists of just 24 options, which is very surprising to me, seeing as they are supposed to have a great selection of everything maternity-related, right?
But if you don’t want to spend more than $50 on a modest maternity swimsuit, you’ve come to the right place. The most expensive swimsuit is only $44.98!
What I like best about these suits is that they are very youthful looking. They don’t look like grandma swimsuits! Yeah!
A lot of the reviews on this one swimsuit said this sweetheart neckline one-piece maternity swimsuit was super comfortable and gave plenty of room for baby to grow.
I like the polka dot look and I like the bows in the back! Very girly and fun. I’m also a fan of the cute high neckline.
If you prefer a solid color swimsuit, Motherhood has this one-piece maternity swimsuit in a nice coral color, which can be a hard color to find:
Best Modest Maternity Swimsuits from Amazon
Looking for something a little more “sporty?” Amazon maternity swimwear has a lot of options for this particular look.
I really like this tankini halter top from Oceanlily in this unique red print:
It’s nice to find modest maternity swimwear that comes with a higher neckline, but doesn’t look like a Speedo. From the retailer: “This tankini top has a built-in soft cup bra for support and mesh lining to avoid retaining water.”
That’s a relief because sometimes those higher necked swimsuits don’t come with enough support for the girls, if you know what I mean.
I like that Amazon shows this top paired with both a “skirt” bottom, and a bikini bottom, so you can see that it looks great with both.
Speaking of bottoms, check these out Mermaid Maternity board shorts!:
I like the board shorts pictured above, because I have an unsightly varicose vein that is hard to hide with swimsuit briefs. I could wear these board shorts with confidence and not have to worry about it!
Amazon has skorts, skirts, board shorts, briefs, and bikini bottoms that all stretch to go over your cute pregnant belly. They mostly come in black and gray, so they’re bound to look good with any top you choose!
Best Modest Maternity Swimwear from Mermaid Maternity
I really like Mermaid Maternity’s modest maternity swimsuits!
You can choose from long sleeve or short sleeve rash guard tops that will look great with any of the bottoms I mentioned above.
I like this rash guard maternity swim top because it looks just like a shirt.
It also comes in black with white polka dots if you like that look better. One customer did mention that you should wear a bikini top or something underneath to provide boob support.
This rash guard top comes in black or jet black: I can’t tell the difference in the colors, but if you’re a fan of black, you’re on the right track!
Black is usually very flattering and slimming on everyone (and pregnant moms could use some slimming!), so that makes this modest maternity swimsuit a great buy.
Best Maternity Swimwear from Target
Since Target is the place I bought my last swimsuit, I had to look at their current options to see if I think they have some good modest maternity swimwear.
They have a few maternity swimsuits with a “lace” look. I haven’t seen this very often. I can’t decide how I feel about it. It’s a unique look, and really pretty, but not my style as much as the others.
I know from experience that Target’s swimsuits do last longer than just one pregnancy, so they definitely have that in their favor!
This is more what I would wear:
I’m a huge fan of the side ties! I think they’re really cute, and I like the straps that cross in the back. This is my favorite modest maternity swimsuit from Target!
Best Modest Maternity Swimwear from Kohl’s
Right now Kohl’s only has seven maternity swimsuits to pick from, but there may be more available closer to summer time. The seven they do have meet all my criteria: they’re cute and they look like they’ll cover my boobs and butt!
They’re all the same price at $49.99, but that seems to be the total price of the set vs. just the price of the top or bottoms.
This blue and white polka dot swim dress would be a great suit for the pool!
I also really like this one, but it looks like the only size available is an extra small, which wouldn’t fit me:
Best Modest Maternity Swimwear from JCPenney
Only nine maternity swimwear options here, but again that may be the timing of the year.
I love this swimsuit. It comes in black, navy, or a navy/white pattern. It looks really flattering! Also, the cool thing about these swimsuits is they all say UPF 50+ which means automatic protection from the sun for you and for baby!
I like the swim dress pictured above, too. Sometimes I think the best modest maternity swimwear is simple and elegant, like this. A little pink trim to accent it and that’s all you need!
Best Modest Maternity Swimwear from SwimOutlet
What better place to search for modest maternity swimwear than SwimOutlet?
Unlike Kohl’s and JCPenney, you’ve got 86 suits to choose from! More selection means more variety. SwimOutlet’s got suits that look like Speedos, girly suits, rashguard suits, and even a few bikini options if you want to go that route.
It’s hard to narrow it down with so many choices, but these are my two favorites:
The second swimsuit listed also comes in a grey/white/black print if you like that better than the bold pink and navy combo.
A lot of SwimOutlet swimsuits are on sale for around $30 or less, so not too bad for a swimsuit!
Whether you’re looking for modest maternity swimsuits for right now, this upcoming summer season or later in the year, I hope this list helps you find what you’re looking for!
