“I wish you had maternity swimwear!” is a sentiment we often hear. While a lot of our swimsuits can function as maternity swimwear, we’ve never before had a specific section dedicated to pregnancy swimwear. Well, you asked and we listened. We decided it was time to focus on the mamas and mamas-to-be out there!

The brand you can count on for amazing customer service, products and values that align with you and your style. With than in mind, we've chosen select swimwear styles that are proven to keep you covered during your pregnancy!
Seaside Maternity Tankini
This week, we are spotlighting one of our favorite styles for maternity swimwear — the Seaside maternity Tankini! What we love most about the tankini is it’s functionality. Not only is it beautiful looking, it’s extremely practical for our expecting customers! As your belly grows throughout your pregnancy, the sides of the suit can extend longer providing more and more coverage. Eventually lengthening long enough to become a full swim dress. In your last months of pregnancy it’s a breath of fresh air to know that the extra fabric of the tankini will cover your entire baby bump! So you’re able to move freely with the reassurance that your belly is entirely covered. In most cases, we recommend ordering one size up if you plan to wear your tankini during your entire pregnancy.
We also hear a lot of comments from women who have difficulty finding maternity swimwear that doesn't drape over their belly. The Seaside Tankini, like all of the style we recommend for maternity swimwear, comfortably hug your baby bump and provide a snug fit. Not only do we find this to be more practical, it's also more flattering!
When the sides are cinched up the tankini looks effortless, sporty and cute. It’s the cinching ability that makes our Seaside suit stand out as perfect for before and after pregnancy. No need to buy an expensive suit for pre- and post-baby. This one’s got all your bases covered. Coincidentally, it’s functionality also makes it a top pick for figures of all shapes and sizes. We love this quote from one of our customers Elizabeth, who has had a hard time finding the right swimwear because of her height.
“I am loving this swimsuit top. I am 5'9", and it is very difficult to find a swimsuit that covers my stomach when I raise my arms and this fits the bill. I was worried that it would look bulky when it is ruched, but it doesn't; it is very flattering. I love the neckline, it provides plenty of coverage without looking frumpy.”
When the sides are lengthened into a swim dress, the suit works beautifully as a swimsuit cover up! Walk to and from the pool or beach with confidence, style and modesty.
The straps are adjustable as well. You can wear the suit as a halter, criss cross or even go strapless. Shown in this blog is our Denim Tile Seaside Tankini, which features a soft, top band keeps the swimsuit in place, and mikado-colored lining adds a fun surprise element to this tankini. It’s a beautiful style. We love the Polynesian-inspired look and feel of the piece. It draws inspiration from nature and the ocean bringing a feeling of carefree glamour. It’s effortlessly elegant.
Lastly, we recommend experimenting with the bottoms to pair with the top. We love the classic look shown above in white. Changing the bottom color brings a completely different dynamic making the look really pop. The top stands out with our solid mikado yellow or solid red bottoms for example. There are endless color combinations with the Denim Tile Seaside Tankini and Swim Dress as the top works as a sort of faux-neutral. Try it out. Make it your own!
Ultimately, we want you to love your swimsuit as much as we do. What do you love about your convertible Hapari suit? How do you rock the color combos? We’d love to hear your ideas!
