It is already reaching 80 degrees here on a (far too) regular basis, and I have a strong feeling that I'll be spending a significant proportion of the rest of this pregnancy floating on a couple of pool noodles, wishing there was a margarita (rocks, no salt, please) in my hand.
Of course, those plans require shopping, specifically swimsuit shopping, as I am not nearly secure enough to parade this belly around in a regular old bikini. It turns out that while there are a lot of maternity suits available, there aren't a ton of options that aren't also either of questionable taste or super pricey. That said, after an exhaustive search, here are a few of the best ones I found:
This Sweetheart Swimsuit from Old Navy is adorable, slightly retro, available in taupe and black, and looks like something you can actually swim in, not just lounge around on a pool chair -- though if that's what you're interested in, it's plenty cute for that, too. Removable straps make it a little versatile, too.
The Ruched Halter Swimsuit, also from Old Navy is super cute in this bright grape color and has the bonus of an adjustable tie halter top, so in addition to being adorable, it's a little more adjustable than something with regular straps.
Gap's Halter Tankini is sweetly retro in a polkadot print, and the side ruching hopefully keeps it from riding up or floating up and away every time you get in the water.
Motherhood Maternity's Paisley Print Maternity Swimsuit is a steal on sale at $24.99, and the print is cute without being ovewhelming. The accented halter neckline also draws at least a little bit of attention away from your belly.
Where did you find cute maternity suits -- or were you brave enough to bare it all?
