Hi Ladies,

So, I really need to start swimming, and my suit is already too tight. Most of the maternity suits I have seen have either halter or spaghetti straps, which may be fine for a day at the beach, but not for serious swimming.

Anybody out there swim laps and have a recommendation for an affordable suit (not a bikini please) that provides some chest support (I am currently an H cup.. and growing! ), or at least has straps that won't leave my upper back and shoulders aching?

Any tips are much appreciated!

Perhaps this? Or one of these? I confess I'm not a swimmer and do not require very much in the way of chest support, so this is kind of a shot in the dark, but I'm hoping the Speedo brand will live up to its name (one or two user reviews seem to indicate it's a decent suit for real swimmers), and $43 for a pretty design and a good brand name might not be too much of an outrage.

Edit: Uh-oh. Shipping ends up being a bit of a bear. Sorry. Maybe this is still within the realm of the reasonable, for a good suit that will give you a lot of use? Fingers crossed!
