    I wore it with d size breastfeeding b.oo.bs and it kept them in place. It is about 6 years old though so not sure whether it can still be found in stores. It has padded lining in it.

    I haven't had a play date at the pool but regularly take DD to swimming lessons. The mums wear boardies or bikini bottoms and a rashie. We are all very boring and practical. There's nothing wrong with wanting to look more glamorous but if you don't want to rest assured you won't look out of place.

    I've worn a bikini to the beach and because my boobs were so accessible DD kept grabbing them out of my bikini top to have a sip of milk 😳. Your DS might be a little young to try that trick yet but just warning you 😜

    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!!
    Nice bathers!

    My preferred swimwear is a tankini top and boardies (short ones).

    Last summer I got a boy leg pair of bottoms and I still did feel a little exposed in them. I think I only wore them once at the pool.

    I think this summer I'll buy a short sleeved rash shirt. My tankini tops still show a bit too much cleavage for my comfort (my bust is large), plus it's extra sun protection.

    After my toddler put his foot in the front of my bikini bottoms and pushed them down to my knees at a public swimming pool, I changed to a one piece. He then managed to pull the top right down so I had both breasts out again in public. I now wear the one piece with a rash shirt and sometimes boardies as I swear my kid is just waiting to give me a public wedgie!

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 know right. I might need to casually suggest a pub catch up.

    so I tried my target preggo suit on and it fits. very surprised as the top is a 14. I'll just run with that I think. as you say, I can't justify the cost of s designer suit given I barely swim. and going into Melbourne winter I doubt I'll be doing much swimming.

    I actually bought a designer suit for when we went overseas to get married. I think I wore it like twice.

    now what do I chuck ds into? I know a swim nappy but what if anything else?
