It is amazing that they are confident enough with their preggo bodies to show off their bikini bumps, but I have to say, it does look funny. Especially the top photo. Her body looks amazing! It looks like the bump was photo-shopped on. I am proud of her for keeping her figure and for bearing it for all to see, but I'm not gonna lie, it looks funny. I always do tankinis when pregnant.
Don't see an issue with it. Great time for hubby to get some pictures to show the little one some day. I couldn't do it cuz I'm too self conscience, but for you who aren't, if you aren't going to start some nagging from family members, go for it. And remember, put it in the baby's book.
It's funny. Crowd dictates response. When I saw this story in my newsfeed, the overwhelming sentiment was, "gross" and "trashy." Which I totally don't agree with.
I tested a friend of ours, my best friend's husband. I said, "last night we missed a bikini contest in Houston." His facial expression: aww man, that sucks! "It was a pre-Labor Day pregnant bikini contest." His facial expression: gross, I mean, aww man, that sucks! I mean.... And then he didn't know how he was "supposed" to react. Hahaha!
I wouldn't personally do it. BUT i think it's funny (the "pre-labor day" part) and there's special beauty in pregnancy. However, If I DID participate I certainly would not be wearing those heals! Easy enough to fall in bare feet. :D
I might consider it. But I thought the same thing as @aliyagator@xanga. When I saw the first picture was like "IN THOSE HEELS?!" I can't walk in heels NOT pregnant I couldn't imagine me taking a chance in heels like that pregnant. lol But I think it's pretty cool. I was planning on wearing a bikini when we were planning a trip to the beach anyway (I'm currently 11 days away from my due date). What's the prize? If it would be some kind of monetary prize or baby stuff prize most definitely! (: Preparing for baby is expensive enough.
To each their own. If there is such a contest, and there are women who want to participate, more power to them. I have not been pregnant, nor have I ever felt comfortable in a bikini in public, so I am unlikely to do this.
Ugh. Absolutely the most-disgusting shit I have ever seen. Anyone who posts pictures like that needs to have their heads examined. Women should NOT be allowed to walk around in such a manner. It is absolutely disgusting.
@sarahsmurfette@xanga - It's so true. Part of us is encouraged to think an exposed body that is not normally considered "sexy" is gross, while another part of us is socialized to think that it's wrong to be closed-minded/negative about such things.
I made my decision before thinking too much about it: Hell yes I would do it.
I don't think I would do a contest. But if I had a bathing suit that fit my prego body, I would definitely use it. Swimming is great for the body. And I don't think that pregnant women look gross. I wouldn't want the world to get to see my stretch marks too well. But if given the chance, I would love to go swimming at a beach. I would look better than the obese pale men drinking beers. The only reason I wouldn't do the contest is simply that I wouldn't do a bikini contest if I weren't pregnant. Not my style. I only want hubby ogling me.
