Swimsuit shopping is often one of the dreaded items on our to-do list – especially when it includes a growing belly bump! It’s hard enough to find a suit for a regular summer, but when your body is changing constantly to accommodate the little one inside, it can be even more daunting. To help you out, we recruited our cute pregnant friend, Shauna, to try on some suits and share what she thinks of them and how they work for her!

In this video, Shauna tries on four different swimsuit styles from Lime Ricki that will work for pregnant women and discusses how they feel on her, the pros and cons of each, and how to ensure you get the right size and fit. These aren’t the only good maternity suits, though – we have some more recommendations at the end of this post!
