I managed in my last pregnancy with a hand-me-down maternity tankini, but bump is a very different shape this time, and the tankini top just rides up and is uncomfortable. I only have a few weeks to go, so don't want to spend loads, but fancy a nice all in one - any recommendations?
Good question, I'm off on holiday in a few weeks and was planning on just wearing a normal bikini... is this frowned upon?? I HATE swimming costumes with a passion and I really don't want to get one My aren't that much bigger than normal.
FWIW my 80 year old MIL has bought a bikini to wear whilst we are away, so I don't see why I shouldn't either right?
I just got a Speedo one called Grace. It is black, plain, nice and good for lengths and seemed to me better quality than lots of them. What with my burgeoning bosoms I was worried about a Carry On film moment. http://www.simplyswim.com/products/Speedo/GraceMaternity1Piece.aspx
There is a 30% off voucher code for Speedo till the end of June if you spend £30 at http://www.beforeishop.co.uk/voucher-codes/speedo-voucher-codes/ so it works out quite cheap. It also applies to hats, I got a long hair hat from the same place and others don't stay on me
Hello - I wore a bikini on holiday at 5.5 months and felt fine.
Also swim at home a lot so bought a lovely Mamas and papas polka dot swimming costume, which they are selling now. Only thing I would say is that being tall and low fronted, the bigger I'm getting (now 7.5 months) the lower it's getting at the front. Don't think a person of 'normal' height would have this problem though.
I second crazyhead on the speedo Grace: I was lane swimming a couple of times a week right up to due date so it was worth the investment at full price. (I also didn't know long hair hats existed - thx crazy!).
BUT, for pool posing/gentle swimming, I wore my normal halterneck bikini when I visited a spa at 28 wks. My bump could withstand showing off at that stage though I wouldn't have risked freestyling in it as even pushing off the side I was at risk of loosing my pants !
