The recent mild sunny weather has us dreaming of going on a fun family holiday.


Whether you are having a staycation or heading off to sunnier climes, you will probably be taking a dip in the pool, the ocean, or enjoying a spot of sunbathing this summer.


Many of us dread putting on swimwear when the holidays roll around but there are loads of great options out there for every size and figure. Thankfully, many clothing companies now offer stylish swimwear and beachwear options for pregnant, breastfeeding and postpartum mums.


These are seven great beachwear options that are perfect for the holidays.


1. Maternity swimsuit

Holidays can be a tricky time for pregnant mums who are trying to stay cool. If you want to swim to cool down, this one piece from popular maternity brand Emma Jane at Asos is just the ticket.


It’s made from a stretchy fabric and is designed to fit through all stages of pregnancy. We love the polka dots too.

2. Tankini

Tankinis are a great option if you aren’t feeling very confident about donning a bikini for the beach.


This one from Next is good for women who find they don’t have adequate support in a bikini or traditional swimsuit as it has moulded cups and a bra fastening in the back.


It comes in sizes 6-20 and the floral design is perfect for summer.

3. Stylish sarong

A sarong is handy to throw on while you’re on the move. They double up as a skirt but are easy to remove once you hit the beach.


We don’t think we’ve ever seen a prettier one than this gorgeous pink tropical one from H&M.

4. Supportive Bikini

Bikinis are your best option for when it’s very hot or you want to top up your tan but some bikinis offer next to no support and we’ve all had an incident with a bikini unravelling in the water!


To avoid these mishaps, try out a bra-style bikini top. We love this one from New Look with high-waisted briefs to match.


It offers a reasonable amount of coverage and support and you’ll feel comfortable swimming in it or playing on the beach with the kids.

5. Sundress

A maxi dress is a great addition to every summer wardrobe and this one from Topshop is ideal for daytime or heading out in the evening.


The loose fit and light material will keep you cool and can be opened in the front which is very convenient for a breastfeeding mum with a hungry little one.

6. Swimsuit

We love this coral red bandeau style swimsuit from Next. It’s ideal for postpartum mums who may be feeling self-conscious about getting back into swimwear.


It offers tummy control and a clasp back for support. You can also remove the straps if you want to avoid tan lines.
