I am pregnant, although barely showing, but by the time we go on holidays next month ( to Cyprus) I am sure I will have a bump as I will be almost 6 months. I was thinking of wearing a normal bikini, but I am not so sure, my husband feels it may not look Ok. What do you ladies think?, is it Ok?, bad taste?, should I buy a tankini or something like that?

I personally think it looks great. I love seeing pregnant bellies! I always wore a bikini when pregnant because it was the only thing I could comfortably fit my tummy in to go swimming!!

Everyone does...wear 1 these days.
I think it's the norm to actually wear a bikini now when pregnant.
Be proud of your body and being a future mother!

Go for it, nothing wrong at all, I agree with Arohadxb, nothing more beautiful.

Think I am going to be the only one that says no. I think showing a pregnant belly is distasteful.

I think it's beautiful...as long as you've a bikini body anyway. It's also all in how you'll carry yourself. Don't wear it if you'll be all self-conscious and fidgety.

I've never been to Cyprus so have no idea if there'd be any cultural sensibilities to consider.

I never wore a bikini when pregnant. My belly was too private and I thought the baby would get sunburnt lol!

Mr DV thinks it is in bad taste and I have to agree that I prefer not to see ladies with huge bumps in the flesh but then I am sooooo over pregnancies now that it could just be me!

I know lots who do it...looks great I think! The main thing is if you feel comfortable yourself.

I wore one the whole way through my pregnancy, as did the two other pregnant ladies that hung out at our building's pool. I was very proud of my bump, and as i was on private property (IE not wandering round Spinneys!) i was totally comfortable. I wouldnt, however, have worn a crop top or anything flashing my bump around the mall or wandering the streets. I just feel its a bit of a trampy look, iMHO obviously!

i wore a tankini type cossie as i had such bad stretch marks but i think on the beach its personal choice, so if you want to go for it then do so, relax after all you will be on holiday and cosseting a little life inside so chill out feel the sand between your toes, the sun on your skin and enjoy.

I'm going to on our Easter break (I'll be six months then as well)! I love my body at the moment and it's fantastic to finally not spend the whole day at the beach sucking in.

For bikinis - of course I don't know your size or how your body has changed, but I found that none of my old ones fit up top any more and I'm now weird sizes (which means I can't just go to Topshop anymore ). The best fitting ones I've found are at this shop in the Jumeirah Centre on Jumiriah Beach Road (across from Village Mall, next to Magrudy's) on the first floor. It's the only swimwear shop on the 1st floor in that mall, so you can't miss it (I can never remember what it's called). It's right next to the Sou*ce outlet. It isn't cheap, though - about AED700 total for a bikini.

I also bought a really cute one piece at Mama's and Papa's.

The only time I have ever worn a bikini was while I was pregnant

Enjoy the fullness of your shape and how great it feels to have the sun on your tummy.

I have never had a baby, but must agree with most. Think you can totally wear a bikini! I would go for a very simple, stylish one.

I'd say go for it. If this is your first baby (and any of the mothers should be able to confirm this!), you'll find that immediately after birth, your stomach is not a pretty sight. A bit of a tan makes all the difference and you'll feel much better!

Tankini would be good or full swimsuit , Bikini bad taste but many may disagree as they like to feel good about themselves show off ( not saying you are ).

You may have a nice figure but we don't all need to see you are pregnant save you bikini for your back garden.

Enjoy your holidays .

I have to agree..but then the thought of being pregnant again makes me want to run to the nearest doctor for a hysterectomy.

wear what you like but make sure it fits properly . You get bigger boobs and wider hips along the way so make sure you have support for those 2 babies and get a suit in the right size so you look good and not look like you are wearing a 2 sizes 2 small bikini. I do believe they mke bikinis for pregnant mums now Just be tastful in displaying your belly

Yes! a pregnant lady does not look fat and a fat lady does not look pregnant.
anyway, we shall have to disagree on this one, and that is fine with me, how boring would this board be if we all agreeed! I hope the OP sorts out her bikini/tankini issues. As SueB said, just make sure it fits!
