Anemone swimsuit for my pregnant body

Oh yes, we've come to that time of the year when my Facebook feed is crowded with photos of nearly naked people. So I was reminded of my Anemone find!

Just before we went to Batangas last month, I was desperately looking for a swimsuit for my pregnant body. Everyone told me to just wear a bikini but I have two super active little boys who would pull at that bikini within two seconds. It's a wardrobe malfunction, nay, a wardrobe disaster just begging to happen! I needed coverage. But I didn't want to look dowdy and boring and conservative!

Thank goodness for Rissa Mananquil Trillo who gave me a tip: Buy a maillot in a larger size! Of course! So simple, I feel stupid for not thinking of that! I went to Zalora to do some research first and saw that Anemone had an asymmetrical one-piece with a ruched waist. A ruche is a decorative feature but in my special case, all that extra fabric means it can accommodate my preggy belly!

Havana Asymmetrical One Piece (Php 2,795). I love that turquoise! So cool and so summery!

Asilah Asymmetrical One Piece (Php 2,795). I'm a stripes person so this really was my preferred style. I was only considering the Havana in case this one was out of stock. Thank goodness there was one large size still left in stock at Nothing But H2O in Robinsons Galleria!
This is what it's supposed to look like. Obviously, my pregnant body is NOT going to look anything like that! But I think I still looked cute heehee.

Cute lang, hindi sexy kasi no bikinis talaga for preggy me. Another advantage I also found with wearing a one-piece? It gives my tummy support! So my heavy tummy isn't sagging!

If you're pregnant, do get one (or both!) of these Anemone swimsuits! Buy from Nothing but H2O boutiques, or online at Zalora and NothingbutH2O.
