    When DS was a baby I took him to indoor swimming classes in a bikini top and boardies....BUT I always wear boardies so that is my normal swimming attire.

    Just thinking though, maybe they also want to wear a rashie incase the child grabs wildly and pulls a boob out of a bikini top or something

    Thanks ladies.

    Hah go figure....so there could actually be some safety rationale behind why this is done. May talk with the instructor next week.

    I also noticed I'm the only one submersing myself in the water to shoulder level whilst other mums are standing totally upright - think this might be more to do with the urine in the water than safety though ah well... love a bit of baby pee chlorine on my body in the morning

    I wear a tankini but do notice a lot of others in shorts and a rashie or tshirt.

    I wear a t-shirt so that I don't get scratched by my son grabbing at me. My hubby will sometimes go in without his t-shirt and then complain afterwards that he has scratches or his chest hair got grabbed (he doesn't have much to grab!).

    I have heard of a woman that always wore a bikini top without a t-shirt and one day her baby grabbed hold of the bikini for some reason and it came completely off and the whole class saw! How embarrassing!

    I also wear shorts too, but that is a personal preference (means I don't have to worry if my bikini line isn't perfectly kept either).

    I wear a tankini with shorts.. But mostly because of the fat/cellulite/stretch marks

    I wear my old maternity one piece (my youngest is 2). I don't care what people think. I can't afford to go swimmer shopping (well I could but have plenty of other things I would prefer to spend my money on).

    I wear shorts because I can't be bothered getting a bikini wax I wore a bikini top to DS's first swimming lesson until I realised that when he wanted something to grab I didn't really want it to be my bikini strap or worse yet the front of my bikini

    I wear a one piece that's fairly low cut at the front to make it easier if I need to feed DD while we are at the pool. I never even thought about her grabbing and possibly have a boob fall out haha. Most other mums where I go wear the same or a bikini. Almost none wear shorts! I think just wear what is comfortable

    I was told to wear a rashie to swimming lessons as bub needs the material to grab on to. I wear bikini bottoms through, no shorts. At the beach and pool (outside of swimming lessons) it's a Brazilian cut bikini for me!
