International model and mom-to-be Ashley Graham started the year 2020 with a bang. No, she didn't give birth in the New Year. Ashley launched a new line of swimsuits for pregnant women like her.


Her fifth collection Swimsuits For All resort collection included one-piece swimsuits and bikinis—yes, two-piece bikinis. She wore and posed for photos herself, with her baby bump hugged and snug and in full display.

"My favorite part about designing this swim collection was exploring new7 styles and fits while pregnant," Ashley told Popsugar.

She didn't also hold back and went ahead with swimsuits that have a lot of lace-up styles and plunging necklines. There's no need to cover up even if you're not sporting a slimmer silhouette.

"Who says you can't be sexy while pregnant?!" Ashley, has always spoken up about body-positivity even before getting pregnant, exclaimed.


Pregnant women are not always just cooped up at home. Expecting women, like Isabelle Daza and Rona Tai, go on babymoons and other vacations at resorts with pools or by the beach before the baby arrives.


And do you have any idea how it feels like to be pregnant in the summer? Having a dip in the pool to relax helps a lot. Plus, swimming is also a perfectly safe workout for preggos.

Ashley makes a valid point. Pregnant women need comfortable swimwear and one that flaunts all their curves, especially their baby bump. They should have choices, whether one-piece or two-piece ones.

Shop for maternity swimsuits locally

The good news is there are great-quality maternity swimwear and preggy mom-friendly swimsuits available locally in the Philippines. Most of them have extra fabric for your growing baby bump, while some designs successfully hide dark spots. Below are your options:

1. Coral Swimwear and Mummy Hugs PH, specialize in maternity swimwear.



Celebrity mom Andi Manzano collaborated with Coral Swimwear for designs for mom and little girls. They're not only a source of swimwear for twinning sets, but they have a maternity line, too.


Mommy Hugs PH is also known for twinning outfit sets for women and girls but also resort and swimwear for the whole family, including moms with buns in the oven.
