How many weeks pregnant before you are proud to display your bump rather than hide it?

Just that really.... I'm 16w and have got a belly but its not a cute defined bump, more of a "you've ate all the pies" belly! Just wondering how far along people were before wearing tighter clothes that showed off their bump rather than hiding it under baggy clothes.

I'm 26+1 and still cover up, I havnt got much of a bump, just look like I've gained weight lol

I think tighter clothes look better on baby bumps, loose stuff can just make you look massive and people assume you are fat not pregnant.

I'm going to start wearing clothes to show it and am also nearly 16w. Don't have a massive bump obviously but I'd have to wear pretty baggy clothes to hide it all together and I don't want to buy any baggy clothes so starting to buy flattering clothes with room for growth!

I'm pretty skinny all over apart from where the bump is growing so it looks like pregnancy I think even though before I was pregnant there was a still flabby pot belly in its place

I'm 9+5 with twins and I have a little bump showing, looks like I'm bloated but Dh bought me a load of slogan t-shirts which I wear mainly for comfort and so people think I'm pregnant than bloated haha.

One of my favourites :

I've just started feeling ok about showing the bump and I'm 20 weeks. Just found out its a little boy so now I want people to ask me so I can talk about it lol. I agree tighter t-shirts make u look more pregnant than just plump lol.
