Swimsuits for Maternity & Nursing

May 06, 2019

We've loving all of the reviews from mamas who wore our swimwear while pregnant and nursing. Even if our swimwear isn't officially "maternity" swimwear, some styles definitely work during pregnancy (and after!). Don't believe us? Hear it from our customers--

Marie 

"Love, love, LOVE!

I absolutely love this swimsuit! I have always worn modest swim suits and even bought from other modest companies, and this one is BY FAR, my favorite one! I love that the skirt and top are connected, yet there are still bottoms that are a separate piece. The tie at the top makes it very adjustable (will use for nursing in the future!) and I know this swimsuit can grow with me. I might even be able to wear it as a maternity swimsuit for awhile, thanks to the awesome cut ;) Thank you REY! This will be an essential for me for a long time and I know where I will be going for my next swimsuit purchase :)" ~Rachel H.

"Beautiful!

I love Marie in Tropical Punch. Colour is so bright and cheery, sizing is perfect, makes me feel stylish at the pool and by the beach. I love it how the skirt hides the hips (not the usual figure hugging design). It is also perfect to be worn during pregnancy." ~Tiffany

"Love it

We booked a beach trip last minute with my family since I was on maternity leave after having a baby 4 weeks prior. This bathing suit was perfect. I felt confident enough to get on the beach & play in the sand with my toddler all while looking stylish while feeding my infant by the pool. The quality is great!" ~Jessica F.

 

Ann + Audrey

"Wore my Ann (in Lg, 5'9", 182 lbs at delivery) my whole pregnancy and afterward. I got so many compliments and most importantly to me, it kept my constantly fluctuating preggo & breastfeeding body supported and covered."

"Wore my Ann in size Small at 31 weeks. I'm pretty petite overall and was surprised when I slipped it on that it fit over my growing belly! One of my most favorite swimsuits prego and non prego!"

"Beautiful and flattering

This bathing suit is both beautiful and flattering! I wore it during our beach vacation and felt great in it, even with my post baby body. And my hubby loved it too. For reference, I am 5’ 5” and 120 lbs...got a medium and it fits well all over (I am still nursing, so am a bit fuller on top-if you have a smaller bust, you may want to size down.)" ~Melissa C.

"This is me at 6 months pregnant! For reference this is Audrey in Medium -I am 5'1" petite build and around 155 lbs when this was taken. I also wore the Audrey in a large during the third trimester which fit so comfortable!! I still wear both suits post partum and they are not stretched at all. They are super high quality-I LOVE my Rey's  "

Grace

"Beautiful!

I have finally found a swimsuit I feel comfortable, sexy, confident and secure in! As a mother of 2 my body has changed and I’ve been so self conscious to be in a bathing suit. For the first time in years, I’m actually excited for pool season. Bonus.....it’s perfect for nursing too!" ~Erin V.

"Beautiful and classy

I was nervous to wear a suit this year when family vacation fell 3 months after having baby number 4. I still have 10 pounds to lose and measurements said to get a medium. It was a perfect fit, very classy and hides just what you need to hide. I love the adjustable straps! Easy to nurse in, too. I'm impressed with the quality of the suit. My only comment would be that the padding seems to slide around a bit, but this could be from nursing. I'd love it if they were sewn in instead. For reference I'm 5'4, 125" ~Autumn S.

"Great Swimsuit!

I love this swimsuit! It is so comfortable and everything stays in place as I swim. I have two young kids and I am able to chase and swim with them and not worry about wardrobe malfunctions. I am still nursing my 10 month old and the swimsuit makes it easy to nurse but doesn’t feel revealing. I was nervous ordering online but the measurements were right on and it fits great." ~Jennifer T.

"Great for Maternity

I love this suit and it’s great 27 weeks pregnant, I know I’ll be able to wear it all summer. I feel great in it and super confident!" ~Rebecca L.

Karen

"Nursing friendly!

I love how easy it is to nurse in this top and I feel so comfortable wearing it." ~Shannon S.

Harper

"Nursing mama

The straps allow an easy pull down on each side so you can nurse. It also covers my post partum baby bump which is so nice. Very comfortable and supportive, especially when my chest is bigger than usual right now." ~Kristen K.

Holly

"A good top for your baby bump!

I am 5 months pregnant and I ordered this top as a "maternity" swim suit. I ordered a size up than my other Rey suit and it fits well over my bump. The ruching at the sides provides extra room for my baby bump, it is also long, so it doesn't ride up over my bump. In addition, the built in bra is very supportive which is a huge plus when you are expecting. It looks great, my hubby loooooves it on me! Finally, nice wide straps that don't cut into my shoulders like so many spaghetti straps on swim suits do!"  ~Rebecca R.

 

"Great for Maternity!
This isn't specifically a maternity swimsuit, but I couldn't find a maternity swimsuit that would be long enough. I'm 6'1" and I have a long torso. I bought this top (size Large) since it has the sides that can loosen and tie. I bought the high waist shorts (size XL) to go with it to make sure my belly was fully covered. I went swimming, and didn't have problems with the top rising up, and it gave great coverage. I would recommend." ~Harmony D.

 

Greta

"Love it!

I absolutely love the quality of this bathing suit. I am a mommy of 3 beautiful girls. One in which I am nursing and is 7 months old. The cut makes me feel good in my skin while giving me the ability to nurse her. Thank you so much for a quality suit! I love it!" ~Kathy T.

Elizabeth

"Great for nursing moms!
I bought this last year, and love the fit and quality. I had the hardest time finding a flattering suit that I could wear and also nurse, and it works on both counts! Fits true to measurements on the site. Thank you!!" ~Sarah

Jo

"Quality!

The quality of the swimsuit is unmatched by any other I have ever tried. The double lining and soft cups help give you the perfect shape. I was even able to wear this swimsuit well into my pregnancy. Going to purchase another soon, not to replace the the first one , just to add another and maybe start a collection!" ~Carrie M.
