Shopping becomes something of a hassle after you find out you're expecting — you know your body's going to change, but not sure how or in what ways. Shopping when pregnant often becomes something you tend to do as you go, not something that's easy to plan out in advance. But, if you're pregnant and awaiting summer you might have swimsuits on the brain, and for good reason — there are few things sweeter than a pregnant belly in a bathing suit and these Target maternity swimsuits may be just what you're looking for.
Target's in-house maternity line, an exclusive line by Ingrid & Isabel, is touted as affordable maternity wear that doesn't look like typical maternity clothes. The line is composed mostly of fun, normal-looking clothes, and its swimsuit section is no exception. Most of the swimsuits in Target's Ingrid & Isabel line are classic and versatile, with one-pieces and mix-and-match tankinis, and they come in sizes S to XXL (which is equivalent to about a size 4 to 18, pre-pregnancy). Even better, some of Target's regular swimsuits can double as maternity suits, especially if your bump hasn't quite bump-ed or if you prefer a bikini. Either way, there's no shortage of selection at Target for maternity swimsuits, and if you're shopping from home, most of Target's swimwear comes with free shipping and returns.
1. Maternity Braid Back Tankini
2. Maternity Lace-Up Back Tankini
This patterned tankini option is for those who like a bit of flair in their swimsuits. With an extra fun lace-up back and the same selection of bottoms as previously mentioned, this tankini is a great way to bring some personality to your mix-and-match collection.
3. Maternity Crochet Flyaway Tankini
4. Maternity Tie Dye Twist Back One Piece
6. Maternity Floral Print Wrap Halter One Piece
7. Maternity Floral Printed Lace Front One Piece
8. Crochet Bralette Bikini Top & Floral Bottoms
This super cute suit can be found in the regular swimwear section at Target, but could still work when you're pregnant thanks to the full bust support. It comes in a range of sizes (XS to XL, D/DD tops, and plus size 16 to 24W), and a variety of coverage in bottoms. It's flirty and fun and not as stiff as most maternity suits either.
9. Women's Rib Crop Bikini Top & Bottoms
10. Maternity Chevron Print High Neck Peplum Tankini
This suit is a fresh and trendy take on maternity wear — a completely new silhouette that's sure to make you feel good. Some reviewers mention that it's not extremely supportive on larger chests, but many also state that it doubles as a top for those very warm days when nothing else is comfortable.
