Pregnant Bikini Contests: Hilarious or Horrifying?

Is there any stage of life a woman doesn't have to look good in a bikini? I'm guessing the answer is no. A picture of pregnant women parading around for a pregnant bikini contest has been making the rounds, and when searching around I found another image from Big Woodrow's 4th Annual Pre-Labor Day Pregnant Bikini Contest last year in Houston. What do y'all think?

I think everyone who is comfortable to wear a bikini, or anything else, is entitled to. I personally hate the beach, the sun and the idea of being around half-naked people, but I don't believe that you should have a certain body type/weight/etc. to be "deserving" of wearing a bikini. If you don't like the sight, just turn the other way and don't stare! (duh!)

I have always thought that pregnant women in bikinis look trashy. And I don't really have a logical explanation for why, because in reality what is wrong with it? But to me it's just trashy. I don't necassarly see a problem with this contest as long as its purely for fun. When one of these women starts to diet or exercise too much to win, then it's no longer funny.

I think pregnant women are beautiful too. What my first comment was supposed to convey is that I think the bikini contest is beneath pregnant women. I think their condition is so much more.... elegant than that? I guess?

i'm shocked at all the people who think this is "gross." pregnant bellies are (for the most part) so beautiful ! seriously, people really do need to lighten up.

As a pregnant woman, I think that it's wonderful. If I was farther along right now, I'd still wear a bikini because I think that my growing belly is beautiful and shouldn't be covered up. As for the people who think that pregnant bellies are gross and disgusting, I find that a very hurtful way to express your feelings on the subject. You could be a lot nicer and still express your opinion.

Can't stand that... just seems so trashy these days... its the way the women carry themselves, really... they can make it look very nice and respectful or they can look like dirty whores... a contest will ensure that they will look like dirty whores. Plus I agree with an above comment about how it could be unhealthy because of them trying to appear fit, although they are pregnant.

i think pregnancy looks beautiful. i work at a pool and love seeing the pregnant women showing it off by wearing bikinis. if you're comfortable, then why not show off how amazing it is. this doesn't seem to me like it's about being judged, it's for the women who choose to participate. people need to lighten up

No way! Who knows what these contests might drive women to do? I could see some of them getting really serious and competitive and going to lengths like... eating less and exercising excessively to look better in bikinis.

I think that as long as the contest is conducted in a respectful manner, there is nothing wrong with it. To me it shows that people are accepting of pregnant women as beautiful and pregnancy as something to be celebrated. I am sure pregnant women with morning sickness or who are uncomfortable showing their bodies will not participate. But those comfortable with it will probably feel affirmed that their condition is beautiful and natural, not something to hide or be embarassed by.

Did you know in Victorian times women were expected to hide in their homes while they were pregnant because it was considered disgraceful to be seen in public? Like they had some sort of a disease. Now THAT was disgraceful and demeaning. That girl shown looks great to me. Lighten up everyone.

I don't see why so many people think it's gross and degrading. Women carry babies, and a pregnant bikini contest is showing off part of what makes being a woman awesome. I think it's cool. (plus, you see people all the time being embarrassed about being pregnant... would be nice to see more confidence).
