Smart Style: Bikinis for Pregnant Mamas

Posted by   + Show Post

Open any celebrity magazine, and you'll see tons of photos of gorgeous pregnant celebrities strolling down the beach, flaunting their pregnant bellies in bikinis. But while most celebrity style is way out of the average person's reach, you can actually get this look for yourself.

Bikini designer Ashleigh Paige runs down the dos and don'ts of pregnant mamas rocking bikinis. Fit is key...anything clingy or uncomfortable is just going to make you feel worse about yourself at a time you're pretty fragile. A nice supportive top and flattering bottom, however, is going to make you feel like the goddess you are. Color is also important...this is a great time to experiment and see what flatters you.

The other big don't? White. White makes you look bigger and can get really see-through. And I have to disagree with something Paige advocates...triangle tops for moms. Um, no...those little scraps of fabric have no support whatsoever and will not contain your new pregnant endowment. As a matter of fact, once you have a baby your triangle days are pretty much over. That said, this is a great time to flaunt your swelly belly and rock on with your hot self...pregnant women are beautiful!

Did you wear a bikini while pregnant? Would you?

I never wear one so I certainly wouldn't start when I was pregnant.

I don't care is any one else does though. I see plenty of people in bikinis that I wouldn't be wearing if I was them. Why should pregnant ladies be any different?

I wouldn't because I am not thin, but hey, I see nothing wrong with it. Pregnant woman can swim too!
