    I think it’s fine for girls who are just tummy when pregnant.

    I think it’s great! It was the one time in life where I didn’t have to worry about what I looked like in a bathing suit! LOL! Honestly, before having a baby, I thought it was a no-no but now that I have been there, I say, do it!

    If the bikini covers all the bits it’s designed to, I say rock it. Who cares if people are freaked out? One should expect to see skin where bathing suits are involved – pregnant bellies or no.

    I don’t see anything wrong with it.  I don’t think pregnancy is anything to be ashamed of or freaked out by, so if a pregnant woman feels comfortable rocking a bare belly, good for her.  I might not be confident enough to do it because I feel like it does garner more staring and attention from people (probably just a curiosity thing) – but like I said, if the woman doesn’t mind, then go for it!

    I don’t think there’s a problem with it. If anything, it can be seen as even more beautiful than a non-pregnant belly!

    Like you said– so long as it still covers the necessairy bits, I don’t see a problem with it.

    I don’t care either way. I have heard pregnacy is not fun, and prego plus hot is just god awful.  If it bothers people put a big shirt on, which I do normally since I burn through sunscreen. 

    I guess the way I look at it is that,  there is a person in there. and whyshould I care.

    I think it’s beautiful!  I don’t know if I’d be comfortable but I don’t wear bikinis normally so I say if you want to, rock it!  Megan Fox just had pics in a bikini and she looks amazing!

    I don’t care either way, but I wouldn’t be caught dead in one. I’m 6 1/2 months pregnant now and I won’t even let my Darling Husband take a photo of me fully clothed let alone a bare belly photo. I think my stomach looks disgusting. I know I shouldn’t feel that way b/c there’s a baby in there, but it’s no reflection on the baby…it’s a reflection on how I see myself right now. And I don’t look pretty.

    I wore a bikini with my first pregnancy, but back then I was only 18 and still thought I had a rocking body; baby bump and all.

    My In laws are super conservative so i bought my first tankini when i started dating my husband. I just got back from St. Maarten and I’m at that in between stage where i don’t quite look pregnant yet, just heavy in the stomach haha so i only wore my tankinis! Once i have a bump though i’m totally going to sport my bikinis…I have a trip in september and i’ll be around 22 weeks so hopefully my bump will be bigger and i’ll actually look prego and i’ll wear my bikinis and show it off 🙂
