Pregnant Jessa Duggar Defies Family's Strict Dress Code to Get Some Relief (PHOTO)

The Duggars are infamous for their conservative dress code -- no swimsuits, for one! -- which is why a new photo of Jessa Seewald swimming in a tank top and shorts (gasp!) is causing quite a stir.


In case you haven't guessed, the Duggars' "no swimsuits" policy is put in place because, according to mama Michelle, "it's just too hard for the guys to try to keep their eyes averted in those situations."

And while Jessa isn't wearing a swimsuit per se, a tank top and shorts is still VERY revealing by Duggar standards.

Still, though, I can see why Jessa defied her family's dress code. For one, she's pregnant. Two, it's the middle of summer. And pregnancy and summer are an awful combination: All that extra weight makes you exhausted, and hot, and you sweat in weird places ... it's just awful. 

And that's why I think when you're pregnant during summer, you have the right to wear (or not wear!) whatever you want to be comfortable! You'd think even Michelle would have conceded to that; she's no doubt been preggers in 100-degree weather at some point and must understand.

How did you stay cool and comfortable while pregnant during summer?
