Just the thought of maternity swimwear can stike fear into even the most confident of pregnant women. I have memories of fruitlessly searching through a sea of cheaply made, black, shapeless, expensive maternity suits at my favorite store. I have found that there is very little selection and poor quality when it comes to this particular maternity item. I would also like to know who decided that all pregnant women want to wear black swimsuits. When I had the opportunity to review the swimwear by Pez D’or I was absolutely stunned by the beautiful selections. I found a wide variety of colors and styles to choose from. They have tankinis, one pieces and a fabulous option of 2 piece suit with a cover up.
None of the suits have an underwire and all padding is removable. These suits are unlike anything that you will find at the big chain stores. Pez D’or swimwear is made in Barcelona, Spain. They have been making swimwear for over 90 years. All of their fabric is designed, knittted and cut in house. There is a definite difference in the quality and feel of this fabric. It is the first thing I noticed upon opening the package. The fabric feels more like a soft knit shirt than the typical nylon/lycra blend. It is not nearly as prone to snagging and holds it’s shape well once wet. The suits wash well on delicate. I hang dry mine just to make ensure the integrity and longevity of the suit.
