  • Bikinis, even with a ton of stretch marks! Your body is doing something INCREDIBLE and AMAZING and you look BEAUTIFUL, no matter how your skin is managing the extra room you need! Screw everyone else, if they don't know what a pregnant woman looks like then they need to learn!

  • It really depends on how comfortable you are with your own body. I've always thought pregnant women were beautiful, and have no problem seeing one in a 2 piece bikini, stretch marks and all! However, I'm now 37 weeks pregnant and covered in a PUPPS rash, and I have tons of stretch marks, so anytime I go out I wanna be covered bc I feel really bad about how I look. If you are comfortable with it though I say go for it! Be proud of every inch of you, bc you are doing something amazing and miraculous!

  • whatever you're comfortable w/ is appropriate. if you want to go out in a bikini, then go for it. it's what makes you more comfortable. if people don't like it, then they don't have to look. i love to see pg women in a bikini. i think that a woman's body is so beautiful during pregnancy.

  • I wore a black 2 piece tankini maternity suit that I got from Target. It fit me really well (my boobs were HUGE!) and I actually felt cute and not at all self consious in it. I had my son in September, so I was vey pregnant in July and August.

  • It depends on what your comfortable wearing. I wore a tankini before I got preggo with my first daugher... gained 40lbs with the pregnancy... got preggo with my second.... lost 20lbs and wear a one peice with the little skirt attached... but that is what I feel comfortable in right now (at 37wks)...
