Flattering maternity swimwear from Rosewater by Cake Maternity

Warmer weather is upon us, and for many pregnant mamas that means swimwear shopping for their new shape. Fear not though, Babyologists, shopping for maternity swimwear need not be harrowing, or even require a trip to the shops!

There are a number of very fortunate ladies who have bikini-worthy pregnancies – some of my dear friends fall into this category, and I am rather jealous. Then there are the rest of us, who, for whatever reason prefer a bit more coverage for their swimwear in the maternity and postpartum season. If this is you, and you’re after something to wear to the beach and pool this summer, then Rosewater have you covered.


Rosewater is the swimwear line produced by Cake Maternity, and everything you love about Cake Lingerie is present in their selection of stylish swimmers.

Their tagline is “Swimwear for Mothers”, and they certainly have all the aspects that I want in my swimwear this summer.

Rosewater have four styles of swimsuit to suit every pregnant and post partum mother. Each piece has flattering side ruching that expands to accommodate the most pregnant of bellies and then provides a sneaky way of disguising the post-baby belly.

They offer two tankini styles, Soda and Shake, with the Shake design suitable for women with larger busts (up to a G cup). Both tankini styles have drop-down breastfeeding clips (that look like a part of the design, rather than a nursing bra). This option is also available in their Squash one piece. Every style has a comfortable and flattering low-cut leg line for maximum bottom-coverage.


If you don’t require a drop-down cup feature, or prefer a more sporty aesthetic, the Smoothie one piece is ideal both for laps in the pool and lazy days by the pool.

Additionally, all Rosewater swimwear offers UPF50+ UV protection, removable foam cups for shape and discretion and they’re chlorine resistant – great news for those who like to ease pregnancy aches with some quiet laps of the pool.

Like all Cake Maternity products, Rosewater swimwear can be purchased online. However, for hygiene reasons, you can’t return them, so perhaps popping into one of their many stockists will help you to decide which of the four shapes is for you. One-piece designs are $84.90 and tankini styles are $94.90.
