When you’re pregnant, little treats make all the difference. A new hair cut, a nice manicure… a gorgeous new swimsuit for that beach holiday you’re not sure if you’re dreading or looking forward to.
If you haven’t decided whether to splash out on new swimwear, it probably depends on how much swimming you do and how far along you are. In the early months, you should be able to wear your pre-pregnancy bikinis and swimsuits just fine, although as your bump and your boobs get bigger, you’ll probably want more bust support and either bikini bottoms, a swimsuit or tankini designed to accommodate a growing bump.
And if you’re off on a well-deserved holiday, why try to squeeze yourself into something that no longer fits comfortably to save a bit of money, when you could give yourself a treat and buy a lovely new suit designed to flatter your pregnancy shape?
