***BABY BLESSINGS-Bashful Bump Maternity BodySuit Review & GIVEAWAY***


One of the most frustrating things when you are ginormously pregnant is trying to keep your belly and back covered. With a belly the size of a small planet there is no extra room in your shirt to keep yourself covered. Every spare inch of fabric is taken up by belly. Now that I am getting down to my last few weeks of pregnancy most of my shirts are running on the small side so I HAVE to wear something under them to stay covered. I basically live in my maternity undershirt because it is long enough to keep my belly covered (well marginally). But the problem is that it doesn't keep my back covered when I sit down.  
What I have to tell you about it a brilliant invention that every prego mama should have.....the Bashful Bump Maternity Body Suit. Bashful Bump was created when Amy (the owner) was pregnant with her second child. Struggling with keeping her back and belly covered in her later months of pregnancy she went searching for something to help her out. Not finding anything that would work she decided to make something herself. After she made herself a body suit she figured that if she couldn't find something that would work, there had to be other people out there that were looking too. So she started Bashful Bump!

Amy was wonderful enough to send me a Black Camisole Body Suit for review. As soon as I received it in the mail I had to put it on. The first thing that I noticed was just how soft it is. Soft is a GREAT thing when you are pregnant because your belly gets so itchy. Having something that is gentle on the belly is so much more comfortable than something that makes the itching worse. The fabric is great quality and does a great job!

All of their bodysuits are made of a knit fabric so they shouldn't pill, fade or lose shape with time. There is a built in shelf bra to give a little extra support and the snaps for the bodysuit are moved forward so they are easier to reach. We all know how hard it is to sit down none the less reach below your big belly to snap something. I am basically about to pop and I can still pretty easily reach the snaps.  One of my favorite features of the camisole is the flattering side ruching. It is made so that it is flattering being worn as a normal shirt as well as an under shirt. All four types of Bashful Bump Body Suits (camisole, cap sleeve, tank top and three quarter sleeve) are great to wear alone or as a layering essential. I am confident that I will be able to wear it up until I give birth. It has plenty of stretch to accommodate my growing belly.

When I have used my camisole the most is for wearing during my prenatal yoga class. Before I got it I kept having to pull my shirt down over and over again. Now I don't have to worry about it and I can be confident that I am covered at all times.

Each type of body suit comes in sizes to fit most prego belly's (Size Small-Xlarge). Check out their website to get one of your own!
