Thread: Maternity swimwear??

    Default Maternity swimwear??

    Hey,

    I was just wondering if anybody out there knew of any online shops etc that sold maternity swimwear??

    I find it difficult at the best of times to find normal bathers that provide enough support in the bust (being an E cup) and I suspect maternity bathers are going to be the same. Hobart doesn't really have a lot of shops that cater for this kind of thing, so was wondering if anybody could point me in the right direction?



    TIA!!!

    Tootie,

    This is from our Products and Services Directory:

    Viva Swimwear

    Fashionable, practical and comfortable, Viva Swimwear caters for ladies sizes 8 - 24 and includes styles to suit all body shapes. Their swimwear range includes one piece, two piece, three piece and maternity swimwear. Viva Swimwear manufacture and retail a unique 3 Piece swimsuit that consists of a comfortable underwire bra and pants to enhance body shape by providing bust support and tummy control, and a choice of loose fitting tops for style and comfort.

    For more information, click [url=http://network.sitelink.com.au/z/108/CD152/]here[/url] to go to the Viva Swimwear website.

    They are apparently very comfy and designed for real sizes...

    I love Frou Frou Baby - they are in Melbourne and have some stuff online but heaps in their store - including two pieces that have tops that are full length and they look great.

    You could always try MaternityMatters - they are the mob that send you heaps of clothes and you pay for what you want to keep. Has swimwear too.

    I think I got mine at Monica Monkhouse. Beautiful but expensive!

    You might run into trouble at this time of year though, so I would look asap!

    Yeah thanks everyone but this is really crapping me off!! I swear I totally curse living in Hobart sometimes!!!

    Swimming is a form of exercise that I can do for the whole PG, whereas other forms of exercise might not be as practical or comfortable. The only other thing I would do is walking anyway, but if you need to go to the loo in a hurry it could pose problems!! Plus, add to that the fact that I have a bad back - swimming is therefore the best exercise for that in any event, but particularly so during PG when there will be a lot of extra weight to carry around and a lot of extra pressure - I imagine that it will be relieving to swim to have the feeling of total weightlessness, rather than walking where it will most likely become uncomfortable simply because of the PG, but also with my usual back problems weighing into the equation. So I'm really getting totally jacked off that Hobart has nothing, and that I can't find an online shop that has anything!!

    Hey Mel,

    Just had an idea... don't know whether it's any good or not LOL... but maybe you can call up or email some maternity stores in the bigger interstate cities and see if they have anything that might be appropriate. Perhaps they will even be able to send you out a catalogue.
