As this pregnancy progresses in the dreaded heat I find myself getting more and more uncomfortable and needing to cool off a lot more than in any of my other pregnancies, which means I am loving the lake, pool and of course our inflatable water parks! I also found myself wishing I had some maternity swimwear to wear when we are doing these water activities. Mermaid Maternity recently contacted me and asked if I would review their swimwear and I gladly said yes!
I went to Mermaid Maternity website and was so happy to see they carry sizes small up to XXL, since I am chubby and other maternity shops generally do not carry plus size swimwear it was great seeing they carried my size. I looked around and found this absolutely adorable polka dot maternity tankini top along with this super cute black maternity swim skirt that I just had to have!
As soon as they came I tried them on and absolutely loved the fit and how it accentuated my growing belly rather than just making me look fat. Now mind you, I haven’t worn any swimwear in years and I was a bit nervous I would look more like a beached whale than a cute preggo. I was a bit reluctant to look in the mirror after putting them on, but as soon as I did I thought it was super cute! Because of the comfort and fit I wear my suit all the time! The Tankini has a 3/4″ strap which can be worn crossed or straight in the back, I prefer crossed because it gives me extra support in the chest area. The drawstring hem at the bottom of the tankini not only shows off my cute baby bump but also ensures the top will not float up and give others a view they would not like to see. The swim skirt has boy shorts underneath so you are completely covered in that area as well.
Here I am at 28 weeks pregnant and feeling just as huge as I look! I absolutely adore the tankini and swim skirt, because they are made with nylon and spandex, both pieces are super stretchy and there is plenty of room for me to grow, which is awesome since I still have about 10 weeks of pregnancy in the Summer left. Then after I have the baby I will still be able to wear the swimwear because of the stretch and drawstring hem, since it doesn’t start getting cold here in Utah until around Halloween I will get much use out of these.
I also love that all of their swimwear is made right here in the USA! I wish Mermaid Maternity was around during my other pregnancies because they would have saved me a whole lot of sweat. If you are looking for maternity swimwear head on over and take a look!
You can purchase their line of maternity swimwear directly from their website.
