    I detest wearing swimmers, even more so post baby so I would just wear boardies and a tankini top (one that fit my gigantic H cup feeding boobs in). Honestly though, at mums and bubs swimming it's nothing like the beach, everyone is pretty daggy, plenty of mums with post baby bellies so you don't have to stress as much.

    I saw that!!

    those bottoms look like the granny knickers in still wearing (paranoid about anything pressing against incision lol). my boobs are too big for a bandeau top. if I could find a structured bra top I could be in business.

    i should try on my baby moon swimsuit too, just worried it'll be too big as I got the top in a 14 (to accommodate preg belly & boobs)

    I would love to wear boardies. I hate displaying my bikini area!!!

    Mines not self esteem issues, you can tell how crap I look when my clothes are on, I just don't like wearing that little clothes. A vulnerability thing moreso.
    yes that's it for me too...I feel vulnerable!

    I'm still wearing my zoggs maternity bathers lol. A ruched tankini and boy leg shorts. The ruching hides the belly flab and the boy leg gives some modesty down below!
    This is me wearing it

    I love my seafolly bathers. I have these ones which are great:

    The ruching over the tummy is great, very flattering.

    I also have an old pair of target ones that have actually been amazing post birth because the neckline is a deep v shape, so it's really easy to breastfeed in them, more so than the other pair - if that needs to be a consideration for you!!

    Probably hard to justify the expense of a designer one piece since I gather you won't be down the beach (bay) much? Although you might take Bub swimming lessons at some point so that's something to consider.

    I know it's probably pointless to say but rest assured the other mums I your group will be similarly self conscious and I doubt there will be any bikini clad Miranda Kerr look alikes 😂. I say try on your pregnancy suit and unless it's ridiculously too big just wear that. And buy a new suit next summer when you're feeling better about your body (you will).

    Still think it's weird they want to meet at the pool. Um hello, the pub, people?! 😂 Or maybe that was just my mums group!

    I have a seafolly one too, lots of ruching and boy leg.

    It sucks in my tummy so much it actually is tough to get into! Lol!

    I guess depends how often you'll use it as to whether you can justify the expense.

    Fwiw, I am very self conscious (like most others I guess), but in all honesty I never check out other mums at the beach or pool. We're all just trying to do the best we can!
