Re: Which one will hide my blump more?

  • What @zuuls_mom said, also the second one is a bit more billowy and forgiving.

  • Agree with zuul, also that large leaf pattern is good camouflage because there’s a lot going on. It’s busy enough to be tastefully distracting.

  • @poshspice I think that would definitely work as far as coverage, but it's just sooooo far off from what I'd normally wear, I feel sure that my fam would be suspicious. Like I've literally not worn a one piece bathing suit since I was a kid, even when I was pregnant and postpartum with my first.

    I agree that the blousy one will do better than the chevron. I feel like if the chevron was going in the other direction or there were multiple ones it would camouflage better. The swim dress that @poshspice posted is super cute, but if that's outside of the norm for your regular swim attire, it may be a red flag that you're trying to hide something.

  • Hmm. That one is cute @poshspice and much more my style. I’m just hesitant about a one piece, for one because I have to pee constantly, and for another I’m very long-waisted and I’ve just never had luck with one pieces being long enough...

  • @sleepy33 pretty sure it's not a one piece... I looked at the pics and different patterns and it looks like it's separates.

    Ooo really? Huh. Yes I see now some other colors say top only

  • Yup, @sleepy33 I think it's a two piece!

  • Do you have to wear a bathing suit? What if you just did a cute flowy coverup?

  • Oh I like that second bathing suit @poshspice mentioned! I need to go ahead and save that for a postpartum suit.

  • @msb615 oh crap! I had a mid August baby before. I didn't even think about the postpartum body in summer  :D

  • I have the blousy tankini in a different pattern and LOVE it! It would definitely hide my blump, so that’s my vote.

  • @kvh22 Same.. I had a late August baby, so I didn’t have to worry about it either. I was so determined not to be in 3rd trimester in the dead of summer again that I didn’t even think about just having a baby right before the summer this time around 🤦🏼‍♀️

  • @msb615 @kvh22 ; SO works for the parks department and runs the city pool, so I immediately thought of trying to be swimsuit ready to be able to take the kids to see him at work during the summer. ::sobs quietly::

  • I would probably try to keep a dress/cover up on as long as possible. Especially when standing around.
