So what's everyone's plans for bathing suits? I braved the bikini the other day in the backyard. Even all alone I felt wierd - especially since I currently don't have a true baby bump. Last pregnancy I never needed to worry about this, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do. The pool will be opening soon and I plan to be there as much as possible with Abby during the Summer.
There just aren't many cute/affordable choices that I've seen in the maternity bathing suit world. Kind of thinking about just finding a regular tankini and just getting a bigger top. IDK. Thoughts? Anyone worn a maternity suit before?
I had a maternity tankini last pregnancy and loved it. Sadly I got rid of it I need to go shopping for a new one as we go away in 2 weeks. I did think about a non maternity one in a bigger size. But I was already chesty and they have gotten bigger so not sure buying a bigger size will work for me lol
I decided not to buy a maternity swimsuit. I will bare all this year! LOL
I figure it's not against the law to show your baby bump and I am sure people enjoy looking at it too, but if you are self concious and don't want eveyone looking, I would definitely cover up! Sorry I'm not much help!
I'm rockin a bikini this year!! I think baby bumps are adorable, so I'm showing mine off! I tried on my suit the other night and I just need a WAY bigger top! We aren't really going anywhere else besides to the in-laws house to swim so I'm gonna try it until I get uncomfortable!
I bought a maternity tankini from Motherhood. If I didn't have stretch marks from DS then I would totally be rockin a bikini!

well if it weren't for the stretch marks I wouldn't think twice about the bikini. I'd just go with it. Either way I've got to get a new one. The top was always tight and now it's going to be way too tight. Maybe bikini for the backyard and maternity tankini for the public pool
