Hello ladies. I am 16 weeks and showing a lot. I just bought a maternity swimsuit and I am nervous about actually wearing it. I am not overweight, but I am also not thin either. Just normal. Any support would be greatly appreciated.

I bought a couple of tankini's I normally wear a XS or 2 but I bought a couple in Med. and size 8. The look better than the maternity. I also bought a Maternity and it made me look like an old lady.

This was is actaully cute It is a tankini I guess. It has bikini bottoms and a tank top that "blossums" just a little over the waist. I usually wear a size 10-12 not pregnant so I am jealous Julie!!!!!

Personally I don't think that it is nice to brag! it doesn't matter what your size is.

I think Julie is just trying to be helpful ++++, why the hostility? And actually, I think that is a wonderful idea Julie. Thanks!

To whoever ++++ is. I don't think anyone on here is bragging. Just because someone may state their size does not mean it is bragging. Sometimes "I" don't think it is nice to state a negative opinion, especially if "you" were not asked. If you don't like what someone has written then go to another site. It sounds to me as if you may be a little jealous of her small size, and if not then why do you care that she states it. It should not offend you.

this is my 3rd, and for the first child I took one look at myself in a swim suit and almost cried but beleive me in late pg the water feels wonderful. Now I don't care what I look like if people don't like it bad.

I bought a swimsuit 2 weeks ago and it looked decent. I wore it today to go swimming, and it felt so tight I was embara__sed to wear it.

I found a lot of cute maternity swimsuits at pickles and ice cream - they were pricey around $75 - but I guess that really isn't any different than purchaaing a regular one these days. I really liked them and they had a lot of support!

no matter what size, everyone loves a pregnant belly, it just looks so cute! I was a 10 prepregnancy as well, and just bought a bikini that was bigger (yikes XL) and let the belly shine through! Buy a bathing suit you really like maternity or not and remember that you are beautiful b/c life is growing inside of you!!!!

Just wanted to set the record straight that I was not bragging I just wanted to state that you can buy a regular bathing suit a few sizes bigger than your normal size! It worked for me. Like I said I bought a maternity bathing suit and it made me look like an old lady my husband thought I looked ridiculous! I guess I will save it until I am further alone and it probably won't look as funny.

I wear a regular two piece when I'm pregnant and don't give it a second thought. I normally wear a 6 or an 8, so I'm no rail, either. Show that belly off! :)

I was just wondering why when someone says a comment others don't like people get so upset. Chill everyone and so what if people are jealous or not it is their right. RAR!!!!!!!

Thank you all for the support. I have decided to take back the one I bought and get on from Old Navy. They have some cute ones online. I'll keep you updated. Thanks again ladies.
