Here's the bad news: You weren't able to time your pregnancy to avoid swimsuit season. Here's the good news: This is the one time you won't have to worry about sucking it in. When it comes to picking the suit, we love the tankini since the top will accommodate an ever-growing belly -- and a bikini bottom makes that 35th trip to the bathroom a little easier. Here, the most bumpalicious tankinis of the season:
Ruched Tankini by Mimi Maternity
We love this ruched suit from Mimi Maternity (let it in or out for more or less thigh coverage) which has a cool layered look on top. Not really showing yet? Strap on a bump cushion in-store to get a preview of your late-summer silhouette.

'60s-Inspired Tankini by Liz Lange for Target
Why waste a ton of money on a suit you'll only use for a few months? That's why we love this halter tankini from Liz Lange for Target. Its bold geometric pattern draws attention to that gorgeous bump of yours, and nice wide straps give the girls plenty of support.

Floral-Print Tankini by A Pea in the Pod
Go boho-mama with this batik-print tankini. It's a bit on the pricier side, but feeling cute on the beach? Priceless. Plus, your online order ships for only $6 so buy a few, see what fits, and send the rest back.

Twist Tankini by Isabella Oliver
This suit's the maternity Holy Grail: a flattering twist at the bust, classic lines, and a luxe, shimmery fabric.

GapMaternity Essential Tankini Top and Swim Skirt
You're all for showing off the bump, but that little extra junk in your trunk? Not so much. This swim skirt is flirty, not matronly -- pair it with a halter top for a sexy-cute tankini. Another thing we love: Although maternity swimwear is only sold online, you get free returns on all online orders. Not sure if you need a M or a L? Order both, try them on in the comfort of your bedroom, and send one back for free.
