I couldn't bring myself to drop the cash on a maternity bathing suit for either of my previous summer babies and I don't think I will for this one. I normally feel much too self conscious in a 2 piece bathing suit, but pregnant, I am fine with it since my belly is obviously pregnant and not fat. I just rock the belly in a 2 piece suit with good boob coverage. I have used the same suit for both of my other pregnancies and will use it again for this one.

I might just get a bikini with a supportive top and short bottoms. Maternity bathing suits are so freaking pricey for something ill only wear one summer.

Ugh I'm not sure what I'm going to do my boobs are so freakin huge this time. I don't know if I can find a bikini top that will fit them I'll have to look. I found some maternity one pieces online for $30 bucks. We have a pool so I'm in a suit almost everyday so $30 doesn't seem bad to me but i would prefer to try them on. I'll have to pop into target I guess and see if they have any. I also like the tank top and yoga shorts idea but I'd have to wear a bra under it I wonder if the chlorine will destroy it? Thanks for the ideas everyone.

I went to target and got two suits. I bought the bottoms (swim skirt) from the plus size section...I'm a 16 now...yikes. But the bottoms fit perfect b.c they have some give in the tummy area. Then I went to the swimsuit section of target and found the tankini tops that cover my boobs and belly very well. I had some swim shorts left over from before I lost the baby weight with my DD#1 (she was a summer baby too.) so I matched that with another tankini top. So far they are working out well. I am not a fan of bikini bottoms when prego b.c I gain in my legs/thighs first....went from a size 8 to a size 16....YIKES. But it comes off so I don't freak. That's just what my body does when prego.

I always wear a bra with mine, and the only fitting one i have right now is black lol. I havent had any issues with chlorine affecting it. Unless you recently shocked your pool it shouldnt have any negative impact. I'm too busty to NOT wear a bra... lol

I will be wearing a shirted bottom (the wait band on those is super forgiving) and a nice top with good coverage... Hopefully I can find one, I hate the kind that ties behind the neck and always struggle to find some that won't do that. I have a few bottoms that I like but my tops probably won't fit currently so I will need to find a new one.

I got one at Target last time and it was just loose and unflattering. I'm still wearing the same tankini I wore pre pregnancy and it seems to be holding together fine.

Getting maternity swimsuit is not as simple as regular swim suit. I would suggest all pregnant ladies to select a light weight and stretchable, so that you can feel comfortable in that swimsuit. You can discover this website https://www.dollboxx.com.au to find the perfect swimsuit for you.
