Any ideas on where to get one?

Ideally I would get the Mermaid Maternity ones on Amazon that are the most modest I can find... But they are like 50 bucks JUST for the top!!

I looked at Old Navy.com but I dunno.

Any other ideas???

What are you all wearing for swimsuits this summer?

My MIL just got a pool last year so I know she's itching to have us over swimming at every opportunity and will have pool parties, too. So I really need to settle on one and order it stat.

I got mine from Old Navy. It's navy blue with white polka dots. It's actually pretty cute. The top fits great, but the bottoms were WAY too big, so I'd suggest getting a size down.

I got mine from Motherhood. I got the black shorts bottoms (they cover nicely) and 2 tops that are nice and long and won't ride up. They are having a 50% off sale, so the tops are only $9.99!!

I got this skirted bottom from motherhood in a size 'M' - Skirted Maternity Swim Bottom | Motherhood Maternity

And this top that covers my belly and looks like it will do so until at least I hit the last few weeks. But I got this in a size 'S' though as there were lots of comments abt the boob area being too big and it fits me right.

Cross Back Maternity Swim Top | Motherhood Maternity


I felt very comfortable and covered up
I am abt 140 lb now and 5'2'' I was abt 124 lbs pre pregnancy and a size Petite M or 6 would fit me great in most brands. Hope this helps.

I got mine at motherhood as well. Its nice and modest with a skirted bottome so it covers well. You could also check out Target. It LOOKED like they have some cute swimsuits with lots of options on cut and style.

I'm not sure how modest you're looking for, but Motherhood had a lot of cute swimsuits with one-piece and skirt options when I looked there last.

I really don't want my cleavage hanging out. lol That's the main thing. I would prefer some shorts that were to mid-thigh but that seems impossible...

That motherhood tops are 10 bucks right now is really tempting. I will have to see if there's one I can deal with... for that price!

I got a simple black one piece from Old Navy and it fits really well. I am also big chested and it covered up really good. You can adjust the straps.. you can wear it strapless, but I can't because of my boobs, but if you criss cross the straps in the back it makes the top stay up really good.

I looked at that one and I'm surprised you say it provides a lot of chest coverage! That's part of what I was afraid of. I'm not huge, but I don't want uni-boob, lol, and I don't want to be squished or not covered. That's good to know.

I was surprised too actually! I now wear a 40G.. and with the straps normal I had some pretty major cleavage. With them crossed in the back it pulls the front up higher... and the straps are adjustable. When you have big knockers its hard to cover them ALL the way up..

My thoughts exactly! lol

I actually have a non-maternity tankini that I bought from some kind of regular store in a size larger than I'd normally buy...I figure by the time it doesn't fit, I won't want to be seen in it anyway.

I love that one!!!

I am trying to order it but I am from Canada and it won't let me

I can even get it shipped to a place in the states.. but it keeps putting extra fees cause my paypal account is from Canada....

Boo...

$10 is awesome!!

If anyone feels up to ordering it for me I would gladly prepay them!!! PM me
