The Maternity Bikini - To show off the bump or not show off the bump... December 23 2014

We say show it off!  Pregnancy is a beautiful and magical thing, why not show that off?  Why is there such a limited selection of maternity bikinis out there?  These are the questions we asked ourselves when Bikini Mama's was born.  Did the industry just assume because we were pregnant, we belonged in one-piece swimwear, that looked out-dated and ill fitting. Even the two-piece tankinis didn't offer much in the feel-sexy department. Why weren't we to look and feel sexy, just because we were pregnant?  Pregnancy is still sexy, ladies.

While preggers, I went to many, many maternity stores and looked online for the perfect maternity bikini that would offer more support for my ever-growing belly and breasts, but also looked trendy and sexy.  I was hugely disappointed by the selection out there.  I was even more disappointed to find there was absolutely no selection of nursing bikinis...anywhere. Why couldn't I find a bikini that would adjust to my ever-evolving pregnant body and post-pregnant silhouette? Something I could wear throughout pregnancy and while breastfeeding.  I ended up settling for regular string bikinis, which offered no support and dug into my neck and back, only allowing me to wear for an hour or two. I tried on a couple nursing tankinis and found the lift-cup-up system, from the bottom of the breast to top, offered very little support and made my breasts look quite droopy. 

I wanted to offer everything I had be searching for, but never found.  Our maternity & nursing bikinis will take you throughout pregnancy and beyond.  With adjustable straps and strings on both the bikini tops and bottoms, they will adjust to weight gain and loss.  Thicker straps around the neck and back allow you to wear our maternity swimsuits for hours and hours, no digging!

We made breastfeeding not only fashionable, but functional. With one-handed nursing clips and easy drop-down of cups on our nursing tops, you can breastfeed your little one conveniently and discreetly.  Plus the inner frame not only supports the breast but also pushes up your cleavage.  The band under the cups also offer incredible support.

So go ahead Mama's, show off that beautiful baby bump!
