Swimwear designer Robin Piccone began creating maternity swimsuits for A Pea in the Pod when she was pregnant. “My goal is to make maternity suits comfortable,” says Piccone. “When you feel comfortable, you feel more confident.” Her tips for finding the most comfy swimsuit:

BUY EARLY Buy the suit early in your pregnancy, since the more often you wear it, the more comfortable you’ll feel.

INSIST ON SUPPORT Bust support is essential. Look for underwire styles or for halter tops, which can be tied tighter for more support.

CHECK THE FIT To avoid unsightly bulges, be sure the elastic bands on legs don’t dig into your skin. If a swimsuit’s straps are nonadjustable and don’t fit well, take the suit to a tailor.

VISIT THE NONMATERNITY RACKS To flaunt your new body, try on a two-piece that’s one size larger than your prepregnancy size. Hipster styles make room for a growing belly.
