Maternity swimsuit recommendations

Anyone? I plan to wear it on holiday in Spain around the pool, and then for aquanatal classes. Will need to have the capacity to accommodate enormous boobs (which last pregnancy grew to 34JJ shock )

I had a Slazenger maternity swim suit (size 16). It was great for swimming, though not the prettiest for round the pool (black one-piece). I had 36G breasts by the end of pregnancy, and they were contained, though not necessarily beautifully!

I've just bought one from Asda, it's pretty and has underwired/shaped cups but not sure how much support you're after!
Only £14 and feels nice on. Now I just need to actually attend aquanatal blush

I did not know that.

JoJo Maman Bebe had nice ones when I was looking online the other day.

I found 80% of my maternity wear came from Asda in the end! I kept going back as was so pleased with what I got each time. And I had a great swimsuit from there, very flattering with good support, kinda sad I won't have much use for it much longer. Also, I am a 36FF, not sure how it wld cope with a JJ!! But I still recommend. X

I got a great one from Tesco online and my boobs are not small. Only cost £16.

They do indeed stuck thank heavens. I find mat clothes so expensive but Asda is affordable and has been decent so far- except the jeans which didn't quite fit me right (though I do struggle with jeans full stop).
I'm just going to order a few tops actually.
I've never seen it in store so tend to do click & collect, though you can try on in store and just return straight away anything that's not right!

I was looking for one today but didn't think I'd get one to fit properly around boobs (up 2 cup sizes already) so I went for a non-maternity bikini from bravissimo. Am hoping it will be OK...

I'm sending the Slazenger one back. It has lining on the front, as in boobs and tummy, all in one. So nothing separate for boobs, which as an HH cup is far from ideal blush

I'm going to try the Speedo one instead as that seems to have a chest panel.

Hiya. I tried one from Tesco; the bottoms were great but I couldn't even fit my boobs in the top! I'm a 34f normally and now a 38f 😳 I bought this one from mothercare after trying it on in store alongside a few others:

It fits really well and bearing in mind I bought it in the second trimester and now 34 weeks it's going the distance. I went for a tankini as wanted the option to use it for a pool birth. Good luck with your search x

I had one from Next which was a great fit and accommodated massive breasts

I had a next one, also had a next tankini which can work well if you need a bigger top to bottom.
