Summertime is here, and if you're pregnant, that can potentially mean misery. I don't envy the woman who is pregnant in this summer heat. But you can definitely stay cool in the pool, and one of these 15 maternity swimsuits under $50 will ensure you look cute to boot.
While swimming doesn't induce labor, there are many benefits to swimming while pregnant, including easing swelling in your ankles and knees, relieving pressure in all of your body (even your uterus), helping with morning sickness, building up your endurance for labor, and more, per What to Expect. And why not look super cute while getting your pregnant swim on? The days of hiding behind a "swim dress" are long gone, and women are showcasing and proudly displaying their bumps. And why shouldn't you? You're an incredible, powerful being who is growing life. Whether you want to wear a tankini, bikini, or a one-piece with that magic ruching on the sides to help grow along with your expanding bump, you'll look like a mermaid goddess in these suits this summer. Don't forget the sunscreen, but bonus, some of these suits are UPF 50+ on their own, which is a definite plus. Nobody wants sunburn discomfort on top of pregnancy discomfort.
