Welcome! I'm a photographer, wife, mom to a sweet baby boy we call John-John, and am expecting another little boy in June.

I've started blogging to share the ideas, products, and discoveries that have made my life easier and more intentional in hopes they will do the same for you!

Best Maternity Swimsuits for Long Torsos


pregnancy swimsuits

MAMA Padded-cup Swimsuit, Old Navy Tie-Front Bikini Swim Top and Bottom, Cache Coeur Bloom Two-Piece Maternity Swimsuit

Warmer days are upon us and as someone who is both very pregnant and has a long torso, the hunt for swimwear can be …exhausting. Between guessing your size and trying to gauge how supportive tops are, it’s a time-intensive task. This summer I am of the opinion that pregnant women should embrace the bikini! It is so much easier with a long torso. It’s also great to have a one-piece though so I tried on about 5,000 swimsuits in search of the best ones. Luckily, I found a few gems that every expecting mom will love! Between these four suits (I have the Old Navy one in both pink and blue) I have a bunch of cute options that feel really good and have made recent trips to Austin and Charleston tons of fun because I don’t have to think about what I’m wearing and if everything is covered (you know what I mean…). I get to just enjoy myself!

  1. MAMA Padded-cup Swimsuit ($35) – timeless, cute scallop detail, padded, super comfortable, good booty coverage.
  2. Old Navy Tie-Front Bikini Swim Top (multiple colors on sale now $20) and Bottom (multiple colors on sale now $18) – this top surprised me and is much more supportive and comfortable than expected! The ribbed fabric is flattering and feels secure. Low rise bottoms are perfect under a bump! Good booty coverage.
  3. Cache Coeur Bloom Two-Piece Maternity Swimsuit ($99 at Nordstrom) – so flattering with the flutter sleeve (plus great for sun coverage!), beautifully made, supportive top, multiple colors. A great suit for anyone, pregnant or not! Also has good booty coverage.
