The Baby Bump: It's Bikini Time!

By . - Thursday, November 12, 2015

Ladies and gentlemen, I have officially lost my whole damn mind! A few of my girlfriends and I are getting together for a pool party. We're celebrating a dear friends belated birthday, and doing a last minute turn up before the year ends. I quickly realised that I didn't have a swimming costume to fit my newly round and pregnant shape, so off I went to be brave in the of the mall.

What am I doing?!

First, can I say that I get the weirdest stares when I'm walking in the mall! My hair is really curly and folks are always wondering if it's real, I also look much younger than my actual age and therefore my massive baby bump gets super duper stares. Now I decide to walk around with several options of swim costumes in hand, and people are looking at me as if I have no business being happy in a swimming pool or ocean. Child, have several seats!

Side eye's the hell out of everyone!

I tried Mr. Price and Foschini first, but they didn't have a lot of options left, and rightfully so since I'm super late in the game to be bathing suit shopping. Off to trusty Woolworths I went for the ride of my life. I have to say that Woolies had an okay selection of suits for older women, or women who prefer to cover up more of their body. There are some fun and flirty options as well, but there isn't really an in-between. Keep that in mind if you're going swimsuit shopping soon.

At first I decided that I wanted to coverup a bit and avoid exposing my new back fat and cellulite on the bums, so I decided on this two piece outfit.

Black Applique Halter Top
Plain Swim Skirt
It was okaaaaay. Really boring and safe for no damn reason. I usually live in black but it wasn't the one for me. Off to the second outfit.
Frill Print Bandeau Bikini Top

Frill Print Bikini Bottom

This was super fun but my breasts laughed at this top! They were spilling all over the place and it didn't provide enough support overall. Next!

Textured Pushup Bikini Top

Textured Bikini
I loved this swim suit in coral, which looks amazing on my skin! I went with this look and paired it with a beautiful bright kaftan for a little coverage.

Excuse the lighting in the pic. Late night excitement :)

My breasts are massive and amazing! My baby bump is undeniable and I'm definitely ready to pop! I'm looking forward to wearing this over the weekend and taking some great pictures in the sun. I really hope this post encourages pregnant ladies to celebrate their bumps and be proud of what their bodies are doing regardless of how they may feel. We are amazing, beautiful and powerful! Love your body!

Let me go put some clothes on...
