two piece while pregnant

This post is underwritten by Old Navy. Whether you're looking for a tankini, bikini, or a one piece, Old Navy has you confidently covered at a great price.


Iv'e promised the kids all kinds of beach days this summer. This is a fairly easy request and something I enjoy as much as they do. The beach is a place where I always feel free. Something about just laying in the sun with no worries, kids playing, water near by... it just feels right. 

This summer my beachwear requires a bit more planning. A thirty week belly needs more room, comfort and space to grow. Did I just say thirty weeks....?!?! 

The kids and I went out shopping for new bathing suits recently and I did something daring and not very much like me. 

I skipped the maternity one piece! Didn't even try them on! And just bought a bikini top and bottom in a bigger size!
I'm showing off my belly this summer. It's a bit wild and crazy for me. Truth is though, I feel totally comfortable and confident in this big belly right now. I see myself and although I see a lot of growth in certain places that probably shouldn't be growing and will be hard to loose post baby... I also see how beautiful I am in this temporary skin. 
Thought's about how this might will probably be the last time I am pregnant have also crossed my mind and for this reason I feel like I should embrace my body even more.

So weird for me to write this because I am usually the last person to feel comfortable in a two piece when I am not pregnant. Even during times in my life when I have been in the best shape I have always focused on all of my imperfections. Maybe pregnancy gives me a reason to be just like I am without having these certain expectations about how I should look.  
Definitely leaves me with thoughts about feeling comfortable with who I am post baby. 

Showing my belly off...am I completely crazy for doing this? What are your thoughts on a two piece during pregnancy? Is it a no-no or a do it

Have you and the kids shopped for bathing suits yet?

I wore bikinis while pregnant with my first. I've never seen a pregnant woman who didn't look adorable in one! We've already shopped for suits this year. We live at the beach, so we're always ready. :)

I don't really know how I feel about what bathing attire to wear while your pregnant, but if your comfortable that's all that matters. Just be yourself and be happy in your skin.

I LOVE this Post!! Love that you bought a bikini. Love your comfort in your beautiful pregnant skin! I have never felt comfortable in a bikini either--even at my skinniest. But when I was pregnant; that was the hardest my stomach had ever been, so I showed it off. :) Can't believe how far along you are!! Yay!
