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 wore a bikini up until recently, now my stomach is getting bigger, I'm due in november, so this summer I'll stick with the tankinis. I just don't feel comfortable wearing one while pregnant.

No I didn't. But I don't like them.

I didn't and wouldn't but, I haven't ever worn one, I've never had the body for it.  If I did, hell yeah I would have!!

I am 5.5 months pregnant now and since I am going to be full blown preggers this summer with the predicted heat, heck ya I am going to get into a bikini and swim :) I dont care what I look like pregnant women are all beautiful big and small alike ;)

I wore a bikini all throughout the summer when unwashed pregnant. I flaunted that belly! Lol.

I wouldn't wear it now, but more power to those who do.
