  • I say do what you want, if YOU feel comfortable then you'll rock it but if you feel self conscious then you shouldn't be in one - it's that simple. People who are grossed out by the pregger belly will be no matter what. Live your life without worrying what others think!

  • ive seen my share of preggers in bikini's, and i always think they look cute. i myself am not comfortable wearing a bikini, i have self-image issues, so there was no way i was going to strut my stuff in one while pregnant. but i've never thought a pregnant woman looked horrid in a bikini, quite the opposite actually.

  • I don't think it really matter what other people think. I would never be comfortable in one pregnant or not but if you can go and not be self conscious then go for it.

  • How does this differ from someone who is overweight to someone who is pregnant?

    I say, if you are comfortable wearing it, go for it. If someone has a problem, they don't have to look!

  • Why not?? The last time I wore a bikini I was 2 mo pregnant with my first. I would love to rock a bikini again, but after two pregnancies, the flab and stretch marks would not be too atractive!

  • If I could do it I would. I really applaud women that are confident in their bodies, baby bumps or curve curves.

  • I think there is nothing wrong with showing your baby belly as long as you are comfortable with it.

  • I was wearing a bikini the week before my oldest daughter was born. I was 24, fairly slim, and my skin looked good back then. I wouldn't have considered it with my twin pregnancy, but I was past wearing a bikini before I got pregnant with them, and by the time it was swimming season I was enormous. I think if you feel comfortable showing that much skin it's fine, but if you'll feel self conscious find a nice maternity tankini and enjoy yourself.

  • I was super tone bfore I got pregnant and I didnt wear a bikini in public. However I did wear one on occasion while swimming at my sisters house- but im fair skinned and sunburn is more likely while pregnant so most times I wore a TANKINI.
