Today I have another swim post with Nordstrom and this time I chose this red Tommy Bahama tankini that I absolutely LOVE! If you didn’t have a belly (it is not a maternity suit) it would pretty much look like a one piece and there is nothing more that I love than a good one piece! All growing up I wore bikinis only (I still wear them occasionally) and I thought one pieces and tankinis were so lame. But now I love a good one piece and think it is so classy! It also doesn’t hurt for those days you just ate a burrito or something and suddenly everyone wants to go swimming haha 🙂

Anyways, I love the fit of this suit and also love that it comes in so many colors. I wore it with my trusty Ray Ban’s – I love these all black ones! I had a pair and David and I lost them while we were in Europe recently and I was so stinking bummed!! So I had to get another pair because they are so classic and every girl/guy needs a pair! Plus they are on SALE right now at Nordstrom! Can’t beat that.

Here are some more summer suits from Nordstrom that I am loving…

  1. Did you size up in the tankini in order for it to fit over your belly? I found this suit, LOVE IT, but not sure on the size….

    1. Hey Christen!! Sorry I just saw this 🙂 Glad I could help!! xo

      1. Beautiful as always, Amber! Do you wear your extensions when you go swimming? I think you use bombshell now, but I got the euronext and wasn’t sure if I should take them out before going in the ocean? Thanks!

  2. I think you just saved my summer, haha I’m just barely getting to the weight gain part of being preggo and could not figure out what kind of swimsuit would work with the growing belly. Love this suit! And could you be any prettier?


    1. Aw thanks Anna!! And yeah this swimsuit is perfect for pregnancy and love that you can wear it after the baby too! 🙂 best of luck with your pregnancy girl! xx

  3. These are such beautiful pictures – you look gorgeous! I only hope I can look this glamorous when I’m pregnant!

  4. Just saw your feature on Refinery29, that’s awesome!
    Also, I love your summer style!


  5. LOVE the red on you! You look stunning. And that floaty is to-die-for! So fun!

  6. Amber, I would absolutely love it if you would share all of your favorite pregnancy “must-haves”. You obviously do a great job of taking care of yourself and your advice would be so helpful. Lotions, stretch mark creams, shampoos/conditioners, nail polishes, supplements, books, apps, pillows, etc. Anything you would like to share would be appreciated. Thanks!

    1. Sorry I am just seeing this!! But ironically I just shared all my must haves in my post yesterday! As for nail polishes and shampoos and stuff, my doctor said to just keep using what I was using, he said there aren’t any chemicals that will harm the baby! although I did have to stop using my retin-a ! Other than that most of mine were already pregnancy safe! The rest I think I covered in the post! 🙂

  7. You are so gorgeous! I love that the swimming suit pieces still almost meet up. I couldn’t wear any of my regular tankinis when I was pregnant because they looked so goofy! They made me look like those guys that have a beer gut that pokes out of the bottom of their shirt…funny but not cute. That green suit is gorgeous too!


    1. Haha you are too funny I totally know what you are talking about with the whole beer gut thing! Thats how it is with some of my tee’s and work out tanks! Luckily this suit was pretty long 🙂

  8. ha! Same exact thing happened to me in Europe as well. Lost these Raybans on my last day in Paris, and as soon as I got home I went and repurchased them! They really are the best 🙂 Amazing photos as always !

    1. Ugh isn’t that the worst!! Mine was on my last day too! Actually I left them in our rental car when we went to go return it haha. And thanks!! xx

  9. Love this tankini on you Amber! Haha I know what you mean—I used to think it was only cool to wear bikinis back in the day, but now I LOVE a good one piece. Definitely classy, like you said. I don’t own any tankinis, but I might have to reconsider! Fun post and great shots! xo

    1. Thanks Brooke! And I know so funny, I don’t know why they are ‘lame’ when you are younger! Haha hopefully my daughters don’t think that! xx

  10. I always felt the same about one pieces growing up but now there is something cooler about a one piece than the regular old bikini!

    XO, K

    1. Aw thanks girl!! And yeah pros and cons to both! Fun to show off a baby bump but also stinks being bloody hot! 🙂

  11. Beautiful color and bathing suit on you.

    Have a wonderful day!

  12. Wow, you look amazing pregnant!! I’m 31 weeks pregnant and looking for a new bathing-suit so I’ll have to check that one out! I agree; tankini’s and one-pieces look so pretty & classy. 🙂

    1. Thanks Julie!! So fun that you are pregnant too! best of luck with the rest of your pregnancy! xo
