Is it too much to ask? I am going to need a maternity swimsuit. The boys and I practically live at the pool starting at the end of May, so I am on a quest to find a good maternity swimsuit. I am having some issues. The issue isn’t cuteness, availability, or price. The issue is that all of the bottoms look like this:
And here’s an example of a top, which I think is simple and cute and comes in a wide variety of colors.
Back to my issue. The bottoms. Over the past, oh let’s say 14 years, I have become increasingly self-conscious about my legs and butt in a swimsuit. Usually I just suck it up and realize that no one looks perfect. But I would say for the past 2 years at least, I have chosen a swimsuit that covers more, either with a skirt or board shorts. And that’s when I’m not pregnant.
So this summer, at 7 months pregnant, I do not want to wear skimpy bathing suit bottoms. If only I was one of those cute pregnant ladies who only gained in their stomach, had an ideal body type before getting pregnant, and had perfectly perky and reasonably sized bosoms. Then maybe I would choose a suit like this one:
But alas, I am one of those lucky pregnant women who is gaining weight all over, who started out this pregnancy a bit on the heavy side, and who has already been through this twice before which means I am soft in squishy in places that should be firm.
I had the brilliant idea to buy a pair of board shorts, just like I would if I were not pregnant this summer. A quick google search led me to this:
Words really can’t describe. Faced with the option of baring a little too much and wearing one of those, I think I will go with the former. At least I can get a tan in the regular suits. And as we all know, tan fat looks better than white fat.
