Best nursing bathing suits – one pieces, bikinis and tankinis

Trying to find a maternity swimsuit of any kind isn’t too hard. Trying to find stylish nursing bathing suits is a little trickier. I only found a few that are designed specifically for nursing. There are all the more choices I know to be easy to breastfeed in. That has a “nursing friendly” designs. Scroll down to view my pick of best nursing bathing suits.

If you want to go out and look for yourself, there are a couple of styles that work pretty well for breastfeeding. Most halter neck designs can easily be tied up and tied for a feed. The ones that have drop-down clips or ties at the shoulders. And also, the swimsuits that are of shoulder.

Nursing bathing suits

The one-piece swimsuits have its advantages. It squeezes you in all the right places. It provides a little more cover than a bikini. When you go for a swim you don’t have to worry about any “falling outs”. And for a few years there has been quite a lot to choose from as it has become trendy.

Finding a cute nursing swimsuit isn’t done in a heart beat. There aren’t that much to choose from and some should never have seen the light of day. Others are too much active wear for a day at the pool or the beach. But it’s not all bad news. I have scoured the web for you and come up with a couple of solid choices.

Cute design with slimming effect

Being a mum doesn’t mean you have to look like a one. Not an old and boring one at least. This is actually not a one piece even though it looks like it. It’s not even a nursing swim suit. It’s a regular two piece bathing suit. But it’s perfect for both breastfeeding and the after-pregnancy-body. The top with its flounce covers your belly and the high waisted bottoms has tummy control effect. All helping you looking your best and feeling comfortable. There are in total 14 colors and patterns to choose from and tons of great reviews.

The best nursing bathing suit?

This nursing  bathing suit is an Amazon Choice with nice reviews. A proper swimsuit for breastfeeding. It has integrated nursing clips in the tied halter top. Which is also adjustable. And the pads are removable for discreet access. This is all great. But what’s even better is the fit. After giving birth it takes a while for the body to recover and, at least, working its way back to original shape. This swimsuit is both supportive and slimming across the tummy and under the bust. It might be my favorite.

Nursing swimsuits with One-step feeding clasp

EastElegant have a pretty elegant option. I would say elegant both in style and in function. The One-step feeding clasp is a clips that is integrated into the tied halter top (which is also adjustable). You can also take off the cup using just one hand. What’s even better about this one piece breastfeeding swimsuit is that it has tummy control. That means it is slimming. It helps to support and shape your body, giving you a nice silhouette. Choose between the colors wine red and black.

Tie waist maternity One-Piece

Pinkblushmaternity unfortunately doesn’t have any nursing swimsuits. They do have a lot of absolutely lovely maternity swimsuits that are very nursing friendly. I would also say that they’re post partum forgiving. By that I mean they can help you look great in a swimsuit even if your body haven’t returned to its former glory just yet. The wrap V-neckline makes it easy to breastfeed in, and the adjustable straps, waist tie, and ruched sides will help your silhouette.

Pinkblush always have floral delights in every category, swimsuits are no exception. I love this feminine bright lavender. If it’s not your cup of tea it comes in other colors. There’s an olive green option that’s definitely worth checking out. Pinkblush also have a lot of other swimsuits to choose from of course.

Crossover design for nursing & yoga

You don’t have to buy a special nursing bikini if you already got a nursing friendly design, except for size reasons. Most of us get a little bigger both here and there during pregnancy and after. What’s extra awesome about this one is the crossover design. You can wear it during labor. It’s perfect if you’re considering a water birth. Of course you can wear it to the beach and pool. But it also works as a yoga top. And it’s a flexible easy to use nursing item. Mommas are going crazy over this one.

Nursing Tankini with boyshorts

This is not a nursing tankini, but just a regular one. But that doesn’t mean it won’t do the trick. I really like it because it has removable pads, adjustable shoulder straps, 25 colors and patterns to choose from, and it covers (hides) your belly a bit. On top of that it’s cute and you can get it for about $28. That includes the bottoms as well. I’m not the only one who like it. It’s a number 1 bestseller.

Have you heard of leak proof swimwear?

Yes it’s true. There is such a thing. That means you can go from a swim, to the beach and to the cafe completely safe from leaks. By leaks I mean little pee accidents, lighter periods or heavy discharge. Perfect if your pelvic floor is a little weak or in the beginning or end of your cycle. They are water resistent, dries incredibly fast, doesn’t stain and fight away odors. I would go with a pair of leak proof bottoms and a regular nice bikini.
