As moms (expectant or otherwise), we appreciate anything that makes our lives easier, like this bandeau-style tankini that takes the effort out of accessorizing with its wooden beaded neck ties.

Gray Polka Dot Tankini
Not quite the teeny-weeny polka dot bikini of yesteryear, but just as cute and maybe a touch more practical. Side ruching allows this suit to take your belly through the end of pregnancy and beyond, while convertible straps allow you to add support on top.
A Pea in the Pod Twist Front Maternity Tankini Swimsuit from apeainthepod.com, $89
Pregnant and proud... in purple. We love this maternity bikini with its contrasting band that can be rolled up or down as needed -- and stays in place wherever you leave it.

Pregnant & Preppy
Expectant fans of the classic prepster pink and green combo will go ga-ga for this irresistible halter maternity tankini with side ruching.

Leaf It to You
This black and white leaf-print shirred halter top from Liz Lange's Target collection is easy to pair with your choice of bottoms -- a bikini bottom, or swim shorts for additional coverage. Available through size XXL.
Liz Lange for Target Maternity Shirred Side Halter Swim Top from target.com, $24.99
For expectant mamas feeling as bold as this print, this keyhole-style halter tankini is a perennial fave. Adjustable ties on the bottom offer continuous comfort throughout pregnancy as your belly (and possibly, um, your bum) expands.

Mom In Black
Fashion duh: black is sleekly flattering, whether you're preggo or not. The white piping and faux belt with gold hardware of this halter number add a bit of interest to the basic black suit.

Red Hot Mama
This one-piece suit from one of our fave maternity (and now non-maternity too!) designers Isabella Oliver is fully lined at the front, has a built-in shelf bra for support, and adjustable cami straps, helping you achieve the right fit throughout your pregnancy. Also available in navy and fuschia, and as a tankini.

An array of mix-and-match solid and printed halter tops and bikini bottoms, like this pairing, give you lots of choice, something you don't always get with maternitywear. Buy just a single top and bottom -- or at these prices, grab a few and mix them up for a few beach looks.

Tie-dye = lazy summer days. Enjoy them while you can! Side ties on the bottom and a halter style on top add a little glamour to this boho look.
