I am currently 24 weeks pregnant and due the end of August. I would like to buy at least one bathing suit to swim in my in laws pool or when we go down the shore. I was trying on some one piece bathing suits the other day and they fit perfectly but I didn’t buy one because I’m afraid in the months to come I will just grow out of it.
Any bathing suit suggestions? Should I go maternity bathing suit? Or would something one piece and stretchy be alright?
Thank you everyone!

@ccantics: Ugh, the stuff on that site is SO cute, but who could justify the price on those things for only 3 months of ONE summer… Unless you’re planning on lots of summer babies of course. I doubt I’ll make it to the pool more than once or twice this summer and I’m trying to figure out what to do 🙁
Funny story: My Darling Husband was like, “why can’t you just wear your regular old two-piece bikinis?” OMG, I’d be lucky if those triangles even covered my nips! Pamela Anderson much?… and don’t get me started on my a$$ :/

I have one of those 40s style one-piece suits. I bought it a couple of years ago and tried it on the other day and it looks really cute with my little bump. I’m only 12 weeks so I’m hoping I can get buy with this suit for at least part of the summer.

I bought one tankini for $40 from Motherhood. I am only 15 weeks but there is plenty of room for expansion. Sometimes maternity stores have those bumps you can try on with it to see if you will be able to wear the clothing as you grow.

I bought bottoms in a size medium and a top in a size extra large (and it was nice and long). This gave me the amoutn of boob coverage that I wanted and left room for my bump to grow 🙂

@PandasWifey: Pamela all the way here too if I wore my old suits! You’re too funny!
OP sorry I missed your last question. I tend be a little more don’t look at my exposed skin so i always wear a cover-up over my two piece. So if I end up with a two-piece maternity suit I’ll be sporting a cover-up. I guess what I’m saying is what makes you comfy. Also, keep in mind your skin is more sensitive during pregnancy and you can get a sun burn easier. So a one-piece might be better for that.

Believe it or not Target has some great suits. That is where I bought mine last summer.

@StormyRose: I’m glad you mentioned that, because I was just thinking of going to Target this weekend to look for a suit! Good to hear you liked the selection.

I was about to suggest Target too 🙂 ON does have cute ones as well 🙂 I’m not pregnant – But my guess is a tankini will be a bit more forgiving for a growing bump 🙂

I’m going to Hawaii in three weeks. I just bought a bigger bikini top than I would normally buy to acount for my enormous pregnancy boobies. I’m all for rocking the two piece- I would never wear a tankini normally so why start now?

The only suggestion I would make is to buy a two piece (bikini/tankini). There is nothing worse than when you are pregnant and have to pee all the time, and trying to fight to take off your one piece swimsuit everytime you go to the bathroom!
