What size swimming suit top to wear during waterbirth

I am curious what size swimming ie bikini top to buy for my waterbirth in Feb. Pre pregnancy I am a B cup, currently at 15 weeks I am a C cup. With my twins I ended the pregnancy in a D before my milk came in. I am not sure where I will end up. I bought a Medium top in the triangular kind with the strings at top and at the back so it would be more adjustable.
So my question is.....how did you pick your size? Should I get a Medium and a large? It's going to be clearance time since ss season is nearing an end...so no biggie if I get both.

I got a lyrica(sp?) sports bra for mine, it was black and had a clasp in the back. I just bought what was comfy at that time.

I was going to mention a sports bra too, or even a crop top...the t-shirt type material would probably be more comfy for you too, I'd get one without underwire...

I was thinking I'd just wear an undershirt.

I was planning on just a tank top but by the time I was ready to get in the tub I didnt even want any clothes.

I was planning on wearing either my current maternity swim suit top or the one I had from pre-pregnancy. Really, i'm thinking I'd like to be naked, but since there will be pictures and all it would be better if I was a little covered. LOL
I'd say as long as it's adjustable and non-underwire maybe go with the bigger cup size for a little extra coverage just in case.

I wore a sleep nursing bra... I'd just buy whatever size will fit a D cup, if you're smaller, you'll end up with just a little more coverage is all
