Interesting Types of Swimsuits You Can Give as a Gift to a Mother

Everyone likes to look their best on the beach or by the pool, and new mothers are no different. After giving birth, women’s bodies change, and the type of swimsuit that they wore before they had their child may no longer be suitable or may not fit anymore. If you are thinking of buying a swimsuit as a gift to a mother, it is worth bearing this in mind as you wouldn’t want to offend them with something that doesn’t cover up their baby belly, and you don’t want to waste your money.

In this article, we are going to take a look at interesting swimsuits that are suitable as a gift for a mother, so read on to find out more. 


A tankini is a combination of a vest top and separate bottoms that first came to prominence in the 1990s and has now become one of the most popular swimsuit designs for women after giving birth. The beauty of the two-part design is that the tank top can cover any stretch marks and can give the wearer control over their tummy. If the mother that you are intending to buy for has confidence issues and is reluctant to be seen without clothes on, then this is one of the best types of swimsuits that you can buy for her.

Control with Ruching

Ruching is your friend when looking for a swimsuit for a mother because the nature of the design means that it will cover up anything that is going on around their belly, from stretch marks to an unsightly belly button. When combined with an all in one suit, it can look rather flattering, especially if the all-in-one swimsuit offers control via an elasticated waistband. Some of them can be rather difficult to get into, but that doesn’t matter when the look that it gives off attracts admiring glances from envious women thinking that you can’t have had children. What a confidence booster that would be for a new mother!

High Waisted Bikini Bottoms

Some mothers like to be seen in a bikini, no matter what, however, the tiny one that they wore before pregnancy no longer flatters. Well, the best option here is to buy them a bikini with high waisted bottoms. Experts at advise that the advantage these have is that they will cover their belly, but at the same time allow the wearer to have confidence in their body shape. Something with a print design on it will draw the eye away from any unsightly areas, whereas a solid color design will just accentuate any lumps and bumps.

Low Neckline

Women’s bodies come in all different shapes and sizes after giving birth, some fall back into their previous shape almost immediately, whereas others will never recede to their former glory. This leaves women lacking in confidence, especially if they have a bigger belly than they would wish. A great way to avoid this is to draw the eye away from the belly by wearing a swimsuit with a low cut top that accentuates the breasts. The wearer can then be confident that any eyes will be drawn to their assets rather than their belly, which will allow them to lounge by the pool for hours content with the way that they look.


This type of swimsuit has come to the fore recently and can be extremely flattering. It is an all-in-one design, however, when viewed from behind it appears as if the wearer has a bikini on. From the front, there is covering around the belly area that hides any stretch marks as well as the belly button, and it is also open enough around the sides to allow full exposure to the sun.



A blouson style swimsuit is an all in one design where the top half has a blouse like an effect that hangs over the bust and down the belly. It is perfect for the bustier lady as it will provide great control around the bosom, the blouson itself will help conceal the belly, and there is great coverage around the bum.

As we have learned, there are many different types of swimsuits that you can buy as a gift for a mother. Tankinis and blousons are perfect if the wearer wants to cover up their belly, and a swimsuit with ruching offers an appealing distraction to the eye. Similarly, low neckline suits draw the eye to the bust rather than unflattering areas, and high-waisted bikini bottoms are perfect for the mother that loves to be seen in a two-piece.
