Featuring This Month's Bikini Mama's Model, Lauren!! October 12 2015

Real women, real swimwear!!  Every month we will feature our own #BikiniMamas in our swimwear.  We absolutely love this Mama, Lauren McCormack and love the photos she shared with us on social media.  How precious is the photo of her breastfeeding her little one in our nursing swimsuit?!?

Lauren is in our Aquarius Maternity to Nursing Bikini.  Wear our swimwear throughout pregnancy, while breastfeeding and beyond.  Adjustable straps around the neck and back adjust to the ever evolving pregnant and post pregnancy silhouette. Plus our one-handed nursing clips make it easy and convenient to breastfeed your baby either poolside or at the beach.

Lauren is originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. She now resides in Fort McMurray, Alberta with her husband of two years, Greg, since 2012. They had their first baby girl, Niamh, on August 20, 2014 and have been loving life as a family of three ever since. Lauren breastfed for 12 months, an achievement she is extremely proud of (and should be!). "It was one of the hardest things I've ever done, although I did find it to be convenient, rewarding, bond strengthening and comforting for the both of us." Lauren is back to working full time as a social worker in a personal care home and, of course, adjusting to the work/family life balance. "The slow cooker is our new best friend!" As a family, they love to spend time together with their dog and two cats, whether they're at home relaxing or traveling. Their daughter has, already, been across Canada three times and to Mexico once since she was born! They hope to plan many more family trips together in the future. For the moment they are enjoying Fall and looking forward to winter so they can start the snowboarding season!

Thank you, Lauren, for sharing your pics and allowing us to get to know you!!

Share your photos on our Instagram, Facebook or Twitter page and get featured too!!

 


See what Mommy Bloggers are saying about Bikini Mama's Swimwear October 07 2015

We always love hearing from our customers and love it even more when they blog about us.  See what this adorable Mama-To-Be and Blogger, Camilla from Castle Avenue Blog, had to say about our maternity-to-nursing swimwear....

"This week has been anything but warm and I’m having trouble believing that summer is truly over. Although I do enjoy fall for the knit sweaters and cozy nights in, I miss summer already! Although I think poolside days are over, this awesome bikini will still be put to use. I am currently in the midst of planning our little baby moon and this number will definitely be joining us (no hot tubbing of course).

As soon as my body started expanding my ‘regular’ bathing suits just weren’t an option. I all of a sudden became very modest with the style of bathing suit I was comfortable wearing. I wanted (and needed) something that provided more coverage, was comfy to wear but was still fashionable. Thank goodness for the company Bikini Mamas! A company run by a mama named Terri (who is initially from Canada) providing fashionable, comfortable and versatile bikinis just for moms with either growing bumps or growing babies. Exactly what I was looking for! Don’t get me wrong, I do still adore my ‘regular’ suit options but just don’t feel comfortable in them with a body growing in all different places and directions (bosoms, butt and belly).

There are quite a few options in regards to design and pieces. I personally absolutely adore the Bikini Mamas cover wrap as it really brings an adorable girly touch to the suit but I actually immediately fell in love with the bottoms. I lived in these bottoms all… summer… long (I’m not joking, I should honestly have multiples). Not only did the bottoms provide the coverage this newly modest lady needed, but they were so comfortable! When I wasn’t wearing the top (which duals as a great support top for those growing bosoms during maternity as well as a nursing top for when baby is here) I swapped between bathing suit bandeaus I had (to keep the tan lines in check) but never went without the bottoms.

If you’re an expecting mama adjusting to a growing bump and needing more support, coverage and comfort while still feeling trendy you must check out Bikini Mamas. They always have amazing sales on and their shipping is so quick! They have quite a few designs available for the top and Terri always works hard to introduce new options. I know this bikini set will be used well into next summer as I plan to breastfeed for as long as possible (key word plan).

These photos were taken a few weeks ago when we got our last heat wave. I was 30 weeks."

 

Camilla is enjoying her two swimsuits in one, with our convertible teddy tankini wrap, which converts her Animal Print Maternity to Nursing Bikini into a Maternity Tankini, with one simple wrap.


Staying fashionable and trendy, throughout pregnancy! August 09 2015

When I stumbled upon Heritwine Maternity I was thrilled.  A boutique that offered a trendy, fun and fashionable maternity line, that you can wear throughout pregnancy and beyond.  Hand-picked by the owner, she has found dresses, tops, pants and shorts that can be worn as maternity or traditional, a motto we live by here at Bikini Mama's.  

A little about Heritwine...

Pronounced as Heri-Twine, where the heritage of two people intertwine as one. Here at Heritwine, we believe that being pregnant should not mean that your style should be compromised based on lack of choices and cost. If you haven’t noticed by now, a lot of the maternity clothes aren’t very stylish and the ones that are, are way too expensive. So, with style and cost in mind, it is important for us to find outfits that are both cute and affordable, whether it is exclusively maternity wear or just maternity friendly.

Some of our favorite picks are...(click on images to shop)

  

  

Go check'em out!! You can now find Bikini Mama's Swimwear there, as well.  

 


The ultimate push up maternity bikini and sexy nursing swimwear December 30 2014

Didn't think sexy existed in nursing swimwear or maternity bikinis?  Check out Bikini Mama's swimsuits.  Our nursing tops are designed with sexy in mind, making breastfeeding fashionable. The construction and careful design of our swimwear provides not only comfort, but enhancement, in all the right places.  It's the inner frame of our nursing tops that grabs onto the outer side of the breasts and pushes everything in and up. With convenience also in mind, our one-handed nursing clips and easy drop down of cups, allow you to discreetly breastfeed baby in an instant.  Don't let pregnancy or breastfeeding stop you from feeling sexy.  

Our maternity and traditional line, without the nursing ability, also provide max enhancement with special design and excellent padding. Wink, Wink! With adjustable straps and strings, you control the amount of cleavage, too.

With tops and bottoms and even our tankini wrap being completely adjustable, our maternity swimsuits will adjust to weight gain and weight loss, for long term wear.

Check out some of the features of our swimwear....

-Trendy maternity swimsuit that adjusts to your evolving pregnant body
-Made of comfortable, quick drying and high quality material for long term wear
-Adjustable cups support and flatter the breasts; in fact, many non-pregnant women choose to wear Bikini Mama's suits for their comfort, support and good looks 
-Convenience of a nursing bra: strong clips can be fastened and unfastened with an easy one hand operation, for discreet nursing
-Nursing bikini tops are super supportive and easily accessible to nurse your baby
-Nursing swim tops never bunch when re-clipped after breastfeeding
-Shoulder straps offer a wide range of adjustment to make prolonged use comfortable
-Reshapes to your post-pregnancy silhouette, and can be worn as a traditional bathing suit
-To complement our maternity swimwear line, we offer a Tankini wrap that acts as a totally adjustable skirt to cover your belly or stretch marks when you might want some modesty - wear the tankini wrap as a skirt or nursing cover

 


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!

Introducing the Teddy Tankini June 23 2014

Linerie plus Bikini equals SEXY!!

Lingerie looking swimwear has taken the beachwear industry by storm.  Bikini Mama's has incorporated that look into our Tankini Wrap.  Introducing the Teddy Tankini Wrap. Add a little modesty while also adding a whole lot of SEXY.  

Our Teddy Tankini Wrap converts a bikini into a sexy tankini by simply tying it around the front or back of rib cage, under one of our bikini tops (traditional or maternity or nursing).  You now get two swimsuits in one.

Want the peek-a-boo effect, just tie it around the front.

The options don't stops there.  You can use our tankini wrap as a skirt.

Our solid tankini wrap can also be used as a nursing cover for the breastfeeding mama's out there.

See all the options you get with our tankini wrap with the following video…

Rock it Ladies.  Be Beautiful!!


Breastfeeding and Swimsuits from Bikini Mama's June 09 2014

Breastfeeding and Swimsuits

Summer time can be tricky for breastfeeding moms. The warmer weather means fewer layers and while cooler fabrics may sound like a like a great solution, it may put some breastfeeding moms in uncomfortable situations when using a traditional nursing pad.

Sadly nursing pads are not meant for swimming; you might get out of the pool with half of the water in your nursing pads! However, going sans nursing pads at the beach or pool can also be a bad idea. Thankfully, there is an easy solution to this common mama problem – LilyPadz®.

LilyPadz is the only nursing pad that can be worn in the water and is subtle enough not to show through bathing suits and tank tops. Yup, it's a waterproof nursing pad!

Unlike other nursing pads, LilyPadz don’t absorb. Instead they are made from 100% silicone and attach to the breast directly. That’s right, no bra required. The pads gently apply pressure to the nipple so that milk does not leak out or collect.

And while not worn here, they also look great under any swimsuit. We're especially fond of Bikini Mama's Pink Push Up Nursing Top Swimsuit, swimwear made especially for pregnant moms.

LilyPadz are very thin and clear, which means you can rock your bathing suit or strapless sundress without worry. When your little one gets hungry, all you have to do is peel off the LilyPadz, nurse, then reattach.

Since they can be reused for two months with proper care, you can be carefree all summer long. They are also small enough to throw into your beach bag or purse.

For most moms, a trip to the beach or pool means a whole lot of scurrying as you try to remember to pack all of the swimsuits, sunscreen, and snacks. LilyPadz are just one little thing to make life simpler and easier.

Bathing suit season is stressful enough for new mamas, so be sure to go into summer with these silicone nursing pads in hand. You can hang out by the pool in just a tank top or dive right into the water. These might even help you feel reconnected to your pre-breastfeeding days. Consider it your lactation vacation!

If you're interested in trying LilyPadz, you'll find an exclusive 16 Minute Club coupon inside Box 1 of our breastfeeding subscription box. Bikini Mama's is also offering a 15% off discount simply visiting their website.
