Pregnancy is a time to celebrate your growing belly rather than trying to hide it. If you'll be pregnant during the summer months, a quality maternity suit will be a staple in your wardrobe. Maternity clothing by Ingrid & Isabel offers a line of swimwear that is both comfortable and flattering for your growing belly.
If you've stuck to one-piece swimsuits in the past, now is the time to embrace the two-piece style and show off your pregnancy curves. Two pieces are the way to go, especially if you've already got a little one to nurse and as your bathroom visits increase in frequency during pregnancy.
Ingrid & Isabel's swimwear offers a selection of mix-and-match pieces to help you create your perfect maternity beach look. Simple and classic styles create a stylish look that shows off your pregnancy body.
Ingrid & Isabel's suits are made of comfortable, super-soft (even after use and laundering) stretch fabric. Pieces are available in a luscious deep cherry red that complements all skin tones and hair colors as well as a smokey, not-quite-black graphite hue. The latter color is especially great if you like the elegance of a black suit but have a fair complexion.
Show off your bare belly with a banded top or triangle slide tie top. Both tie around the neck and at the back to adjust to fit. The banded top is great for a full-figured bust and the triangle top offers adjustable cups for a custom fit which is great as your bust changes throughout pregnancy. Both also offer removable padded cups and multiple layers of material for support and room to grow.
If you want a little more coverage, then a tankini style top is a great choice for both a beginning bump and an expanding one. Tankinis that are fitted at the hemline are especially flattering on a bump. The ruched tankini is fitted at the bottom and the regular tankini offers ties for a fitted look.
Bikini-style bottoms pair great with tankinis, and both styles by Ingrid & Isabel offer comfort and flexibility. The hipster bottom features reinforced side ruching to accommodate changing measurements while the side tie bottom offers adjustable ties.
For a feminine and modest look, try the ruched bottom by Ingrid & Isabel which fits like a mini skirt but offers some coverage (it can be also pulled up over your belly). The ruffle bottom takes the ruched skirt a little further with feminine and flirty ruffles! The texture adds interest to the overall suit while flattering areas of your body that may be changing.
Mix & Match
A great way to mix and match the pieces is to choose a top with more coverage (a tankini) and a bikini bottom, or vice versa--pair a bikini top with one of the skirt bottoms. If you're feeling daring and want to show off your pregnancy body, go with a triangle top and bikini bottom! You'll be able to wear both pieces postpartum.
We recommend getting a few different pieces that you can mix and match depending on your mood. Choose a tankini top and skirt bottom, plus two regular bikini tops and bottoms. You can mix-and-match and even wear the latter two postpartum.
