I can't believe I'm posting these pics, but pregnancy is supposed to be a beautiful thing right, lol? I was super nervous that someone might mistake me for a beach ball while I was vacationing in Naples, Florida.
Shopping for a swimsuit to accommodate my baby bump was such a challenge. I was over the whole shopping experience and was prepared to give up the beach all together. Apparently there is a very limited selection of affordable maternity swimwear and what is affordable is grossly unflattering. Every suit I tried on frustrated me more and more. In my book $50 and above is not "affordable" for a swimsuit that you're not going to wear that much - at least for my budget.
Just when I gave up and my family was cashing out at Target, I spotted this little number
in the regular/non-maternity section. I didn't have time to try it on since they were paying already, so I grabbed a size XL and hoped for the best. Luckily it fit once I tried it on at home and I actually still have some room to from my baby bump to grow.
I think I may have found my calling - designing stylish yet affordable swimwear for other young mommies to be :)
