  • I wore a bikini this summer on the beach I was 5 months Pregnant, my mom said she used to all the time when she was pg with me (they lived on the beach in CA) and my Friends have worn them too! I would never wear one after having a baby but I wore one while pg =)

  • It's not uncommon nowadays really. I think it's awesome that any woman would feel comfortable and proud to wear a bikini while pregnant.

  • If it's perfectly acceptable to have ROUND boobs, a ROUND ass, and flaunt it in a bikini, then it IS PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLY TO HAVE A ROUND PREGNANT BELLY and do the same. I never though it was taboo, but I'm sure some people do. Some people on this earth think you can't wear anything but drapes if you don't look like a super model or someone off Playboy. Pregnant belly's are cute anyway.

  • I've never heard that one before. I thought being pregnant was the ONLY time a woman could get away with wearing a bikini when her belly wasn't flat....lol.
    I agree....pregnant women are gorgeous and their bellies are HOT!!!
