I think I scared a young man today at the pacific sunwear store at the mall, heh. I went in and was looking for some bikini tops. Their XL wasn't XL enough for my endowement so I was inquiring about the different brands there and coverage. I want cute but not constrictive, attractive but not ultra-conservative. I KNOW the 'style' is to be a little riske on the cleavage thing at Pac-Sun and not cover the whole caboodle, but I need support, man!
I explained to him I LOVE my bathingsuit I have now (got it at Target) but... it has little beads on it and I will be birthing in it in a tub in a few weeks. Beads are not newborn face friendly. His face went into a few shades of white.
Im pretty sure he's NEVER had that customer issue before. :P
But I AM in Oregon, and bathingsuits are not only typicaly not worn until LATE summer when the sun actually comes OUT, but also I have found people here tend to either avoid bikinis and/or cover the entirety of themselves over their suit. It's a good thing I usually dont mind being the huge blimp out there in a bikini while everyone else is covered with hats, capris, and pale white skin. I need my Vitamin D. And given the fact I abhore pregnancy swimsuits, my preggo bikini body tends to make other people feel a little more confident about their own physique and clothes DO start coming off.
So.... now that I have found the caboose for this runaway train- have you considered what you want to birth in or are you just gunna' fling it all off and throw modesty out the window when the pushing hour arrives? :D I also have this cute white babydoll nightgown for if I decide to walk during my labor, but I'm figuring it will be more or less a drivethrough event and I actually want to stall the last bit to allow my body to stretch so I dont have a bullet baby.
