Swimming wear in last trimester

(5 Posts)

Hello,
I finish an active job in two weeks at 36 weeks I would like to do some swimming to keep active/prevent back seizing up. Can anyone recommend a tankini type thing that isn't going to cost a fortune bearing in mind it is probably only going to get worn a handful of times. Also toying with the idea of a water birth so assume you wear one in these situations.
Or would a long vest top work just as well with a bikini underneath?
(Although I am slightly worried about waters breaking in the swimming pool leading to full scale evacuation! )

I've worn a maternity tankini, but also a regular string bikini for swimming while pregnant. If you only want it for the next few weeks, I'd recommend a normal string bikini, that you can then adjust easily for post pregnancy use. I know some well-endowed ladies don't like string bikinis though!

I got a Mothercare tankini in the sales but I think your idea of a vest over a normal bikini would be fine.

I just wear a bikini and brazen it out. no one seems to notice or care. I know JoJo maman bebe do some maternity tankinis if you are v sure you want the cover up. I found that the boob section of a JoJo tankini wasn't big enough to contain me so depends on your bra size I guess.

I bought a bra sized bikini from brastop.co.uk as wasn't too expensive
