Comfy for pregnancy -- straps could be tighter & bust size off relative to rest
I recently purchased this suit to use for the last month-and-a-half of my pregnancy. So far it's been working out -- it's comfortable, fits without being too loose (or tight) and is a nice color -- but I had quite the time finding the right size. At first I thought I needed to size up two or three sizes over my usual size (I normally wear a size 6 in Speedo suits), based no the Speedo size guidelines (I was judging based on the bust). I originally tried the size 12 (based on bust measurement, as I've gone up a couple of cup sizes during my pregnancy). It was WAY too big. I tried the size 10, and it was still too big. For reference, my pre-pregnancy size was a 34C bra, and I'm now in a 34DD.The size 8 feels good in the body -- but I feel like the straps could be tighter. I wonder if that's a style thing, as this billed a bit more as a "recreation" suit (though I wanted a racing-style suit to continue lap swimming in). One thing that appealed about this suit was the built-in hydro-bra. I don't like the padded cup inserts... I've never found bra padding of any sort to be really comfortable, and these don't seem to add support to me, but rather to be more of a modesty thing ... I took those out, and the suit is more comfortable. I still appreciate the built-in shelf bra -- but find it's less supportive than Speedo makes it out to be.It also seems that the chest sizing is off, relative to the other dimensions of the suit ... For instance, I've been able to wear my other racing suits with no problem up until about now, 8 months into my pregnancy -- including in the chest (though I could tell I wanted a bit more support at this point. But those other suits comfortably covered the chest). This suit, the body is about right for my current pregnancy shape -- and the material is supportive but also stretchy enough to accommodate my stomach -- but it feels like the chest is a bit snug, and the fabric is cut a little too skimpily around the sides of my chest. On top of it, the back straps feel a bit loose, and there's no way to tighten them. They're not so loose that they add drag (or any worth mentioning, or that would matter given my other physical "drag" from my bigger shape) in the water, but I feel like I want to pull them tighter and cinch with a rubberband to give full chest support and compression.It seems to be a flaw with this design, since I tried two other sizes and don't think I could go down to my usual size -- and the size I first picked based on bust measurement was way too big.I do appreciate that this suit will work for the duration of my pregnancy, though. It's ridiculous how few maternity *racing* suits there are, and this one overall fits pretty well while making me feel comfortable in the pool, doing flip turns and continuing my usual routines.
