Gone Maternity: Poolside Picks (& Giveaway!)

*updated with winner, below*
ignore the diving board. it's vintage.

Woohoo! It's summer! (Never mind that my banner says otherwise!) Several people have been asking about maternity swimsuits, cover-ups as well as leggings. (Mine are Motherhood Maternity, btw). But today is about summer style... specifically, pool party wears and things that are beachy. I grew up on the beach so for me, summer is all about getting back to there. Whether in person, spirit or state of mind, bro. I've never owned a maternity swimsuit before this summer because they are typically hideous.

ED: There are two alternatives for maternity swimsuits - the let-it-all-hang-out option or the wrap-it-up option. I prefer to keep things covered and comfortable when pregnant, not that the belly isn't a beautiful thing - it just invites unwanted attention, especially in a crowded beach/pool party like setting. Whereas posting pictures of your bare belly online... very subtle.

Anyway, here are a few maternity-suit options, starting with mine, a chic one-piece c/o Seraphine Maternity who contacted me about doing a Maxi Dress giveaway (see below) and were kind enough to offer me my pick of their swimwear litter as well.

First let me say: There is nothing more awkward than having your husband take pictures of you in a bathingsuit while your parents (who are watching you from the kitchen window) are laughing. This is why last year I took self portraits.
"Look like you're a pregnant DIVER on the go!"
This halter one-piece has already become my go-to summer staple. (It looks great under halter maxi dresses for beach/pool and is comfortable and most importantly, stays put... because LORDY knows, I'm rocking a bit of a disco bush right now and my boobs are better left to the imagination, lets be honest.) Also, these pictures were taken several weeks ago. I have no idea if I will be able to fit in this swimsuit next weekend at our fourth of July beachfest. I'll keep you posted. (I also promise I'll have my summer banner by then, jeez.)

Other maternity swimsuits you might love, prefacing with the sad fact that maternity swimsuits are pretty much the worst thing ever for some reason. (I scoured the web for HOURS yesterday and last night trying to find bathingsuits I felt comfortable recommending to you with a straight face and I came back to the one I'm wearing... without a very... uh... straight face.)
But also, these:
Twist Front Maternity Tankini Swimsuit
Babydoll Maternity Tankini Swimsuit
Motherhood Maternity, Polkadot Babydoll, $30
Decorative Trim Maternity Tankini Swimsuit

I'm not usually one for beaded swimsuits but this is kind of Boho and could be cute, especially paired with a long black skirt or a cute pair of shorts:


The above swimsuit with THIS white linen cover up would be lovely this time of year:

More cute options for materni-outer(swim)wear are =
Ulla Johnson Strapless Tie Detail Maternity Dress
Loveappella Strapless Empire Seam Maternity Dress
Maternal America Maternity Convertible Dress
I love this next dress a latte. It's Boden Maternity and is the perfect summer party dress for my pregnant lady friends. With a pair of gold sandals and a simple gold pendant + messy beach hair = your man is going to want to impregnate you all over again, real talk.
maxiboden2boden dress

I'm sneaking this one in here even though its not really pool-appropriate in the slightest. I just found it, loved it and wanted to share. Kelly Green is my favorite color. This dress is a great alternative to the maxi, for those on the shorter side. The buttons are ridic.
Rachel Pally Sleeveless High-low Hem Maternity Dress
Moody Mamas Maternity Stripe Maxi Dress
LA Made Maternity 'Rala' Dress
Sleeveless Twist Neck Detail Maternity Maxi Dress

Other options, of course, would be to purchase some non-maternity Maxi Dresses. More on that, here. And yes, all of mine still fit.
That about wraps 'er up! In the meantime, I have a Tie Rope Maxi c/o Seraphine Maternity available for giveaway for one lucky preggo reader! (When Seraphine contacted me a few months back, I fell instantly in love with the Tie Rope dress which I am modeling, a few weeks ago here today with fierce poses!)
I wore this the other night with a cardi and strapless bra (seen here) and to Archer's Kindergarten graduation ceremony (omg) yesterday and felt very comfortable, even though I had a hot flash and butt-sweated all over myself. Luckily, the dress is navy. Very hot-flash-during-Kindergarten-graduation-proof.
(worn with Havaianas, because they are what's most comfortable.)

Wanna win yourself a Seraphine Tie Rope dress? Awesome! Just tell me in the comments when you're due! To have a baby, that is. Or, if you're not currently pregnant but would like to someday be, know someone who is, would like to rock the dress anyway, please go ahead and join the party. Everyone is welcome to maternityland. And I imagine the dress would be just as lovely for those without basketball bods. Comment away! And don't forget to include your contact information! I'll pick one winner via random.org next Thursday. Good luck to you and thanks much, Seraphine! You guys are peachy!


Updated: Congratulations to commenter #220, Lynzie! ...

...And thanks to all for your comments! So many gorgeous pregnant women in the house! Love it. Love you all and stay tuned for more fun giveaways coming soon!

I just found you this week from a naming blog about your fantastic name lists, and I haven't been able to pull myself away. I'm due Oct 5th, so your posts are like a hipper, more awesome version of exactly what I'm feeling like! I have to say that I've developed a crush on you and your family this week...you all just seem like the kind of people I'd like to sip a basil gimlet with on the beach. Once these babies come out of us.

Anyway, I just became a CA girl after living in CO my whole life, so I would love a maxi dress to complete my new persona. These are beautes. Thanks for giving your time to all of us anonymous admirers!

Amanda | 4:15 PM

I'm due January 21, but I think they have it wrong and I'll end up with an early Jan baby (maybe even a December baby? eek!). Would love to have an awesome new dress to look forward to as I'm just now having to think about pulling some of my old maternity clothes out of storage.

McConnels | 4:18 PM

Due Oct. 3rd! Super cute dress!


Jill | 4:21 PM

Oh Lordy Girl.... you look AMAZING!!!! No lie. Currently not pregnant, but could totally fit into those dresses from not losing the baby weight. Sigh.

Sylvia | 4:21 PM

I'm due November 15th. Have I mentioned that I'm a midget, horribly fat with my first girl after 3 boys and incredibly jealous that I look almost as pregnant as you do with ONE BABY? Lol. Loved the post.

BlesstheFunk | 4:23 PM

You are a lifesaver (well, a getting-dressed-saver, at least! A Comfort-saver!)! I have been looking for a maxi dress, comfortable and suited for the growing body and belly. Somehow, the non-maternity ones I tried made my boobs look horrible. Cut off in the middle? Arm boob? I got it all. And the length was off, and... I just wanted to get out of the stores. Hormonal, maybe a touch? The swimsuit issue I haven't even touched, because the only ones I saw were in target and, well, not my style.

My bebe is due November 7th, and he is just starting to let me know he's there.. Yippee for little twinge-like reassurances!

You look gorgeous and also like you're having fun, and the image of your parents looking out the window to laugh is so sweet (also because I have a parent crush on those two). Internet hugs to you!

Sara | 4:37 PM

We're due October 3rd! I've been adoring maxis and am nervous for the heat of a Minnesota August. This cute maxi would be a great cool-down option!

GreerAnn | 4:43 PM

Due with a boy (my 2nd baby, my 1st son) September 6th... love following your pregnancy and can't wait to see those beautiful twinlets!

Aimee | 4:49 PM

I'm due January 17. So I'll hit the second trimester right when it gets hot in SD :)

Steph | 4:56 PM

Due dec 22nd with my second!
My 1st, just turned a year old in May:) All my maternity clothes are wintery... I really need some summer dresses!

Anonymous | 5:04 PM

I would seriously love this dress, hoping to get preg in the next few months. I live in the South and it would work great through the fall and winter with a cardi and leggings. Thanks GGC!

Would love that maxidress to get me through the hot summer. You look tall in your pics and I'm 5'11 so I'm thinking it would actually hit my ankles for a change.

That dress is super duper cute! I'm due August 16th, and just discovered your blog and am loving all of it. I'm hoping for a mild summer in Portland so I don't have to deal with too much under-boob sweat marks. Also, check out Asos maternity dresses, some are very non-hideous.

Would love to win this for my cousin who is due with #2 on July 20th. Poor girl has been wearing compression hose because of varicose veins for the past few months...I think she deserves a maxi for the last few weeks!

Carol | 10:35 AM

I'm due October 11th,and I'm still managing to get by without maternity clothes...wearing maxi dresses is probably why! But I'd like a bit more variety!

Heidi | 10:45 AM

October 12th! Just hit 6 months :)

Due on Sept. 24th
Thanks for this post, I've been wondering about bathing suits. Now if only my thighs weren't pregnant as well.

I'm taking a break from baby-making/planning/hoping for a few months. I'm thinking maybe wanting to be pregnant again before the end of the year. (Maybe?)

I'm due January 9th- but I'm aiming (ha!) for the 11th, since 11 is my favorite number. I figure the baby will appreciate that, right? : )

Tracey R | 12:23 PM

After two years, several IVF attempts and a lot of tears, I am due December 20 th!!! It's hot until about October here, ao I would get plenty of use out of that Maxi. =)

Thanks for the bathing suit post- I'm just starting to show and have been looking for one. They are mostly completely hideous, so it's nice to see a few cute ones. I'm not the bare all belly type for the swim suit!

squeakie | 12:24 PM

January 9th!
Living in sunny (and HOT) Arizona I've been looking for swimsuits & summer dresses lately. Thanks for the awesome suggestions!

flyrish | 12:28 PM

Great dress -- so up my preggo belly's alley. I'm due on Sept. 8th.

Thank you for posting the maternity swimwear, too. I feel the same way as you, but I'm not sure I'm down to let it all hang out in a bikini at this point. I think I could use a nice, roomy tankini.

melaniejennifer | 12:59 PM

Finally after 4 years of trying I'm due Dec 16!

Josie | 1:06 PM

December 23! I would love this dress!!

My best friend is due the first week of November! Just spent a great day with her today, and if chosen, this would go right over her cute and growing baby bump!

Perfect timing on the bathing suit post. I have just come to the realization that rocking a bikini is probably not for me. :( I'm due at the end of November with my first. Yay!
