Maternity Swimsuits That Won't Scare You

Just when you think you've got this whole maternity dressing thing down – you realize you’re going to have to find something to wear to the beach this summer. And frankly, at some point, you're going to have to take off that cute coverup.

If you are blessed with one of those teeny, cant-tell-she's-pregnant-from-behind figures, then you should be psyched -- there is nothing cuter than a pregnant gal in a bikini, and you can stop reading now.

But for the rest of us, maternity swimsuit shopping can feel as fun as root canal. Our advice? Take a deep breath, and keep your car keys in your purse. The very best place to do maternity bathing suit shopping is in the comfort and excellent lighting of your bedroom. Order a bunch of suits online, try them all on, and then send everything back but the one that looks truly fabulous.
