[Okay, so maybe that was
I was offended.
The hubs kindly reminded me that maybe there just isn't enough of a demand for maternity clothes. I don't care! They should still sell it.
Personally, I think Express and JCREW should sell maternity. Wouldn't that be perfect? I mean, it would make sense. Twenty & thirty-somethings shop at these stores the most, right? And they'll probably end up having a baby during this time, right? These are two of my favorite stores (in my finance-fantasy world, of course) and why should I have to stop shopping here? Why do you have to send me to Motherhood Maternity. Ick.
See? This is CUTE!Okay, so I'm not totally hating on maternity stores. I have to give them credit that they've gotten a lot cuter, BUT my problem is that they don't fit me! Pre-preg I was a size zero. Besides my waist line, nothing else has changed (...so far). I've gained eleven el-bees and it's all in the bump. But I really needed some maternity tank tops. Mine are just way too short nowadays. So I try one on at Motherhood Maternity and it fits in the belly, but it's huge up top. It's baggy in the shoulders and arm holes. Every.single.shirt. is like this. What's a girl to do?!
And don't even get me started on the price. We're women who are paying hundreds of dollars on baby necessities, and are saving for college funds, we don't have all this extra money laying around. Why should we have to spend more on clothes we're only going to wear for less than nine months? $24.00 for a tank top? I.don't.think.so.
Bottom line, I refuse to stop looking cute just because I'm pregnant. I'm no fashionista, but I want to look good! I don't want to be stuck wearing my husband's tees and sweats at six months.
[I'm saving this hot look for nine months, thank you.]
So ladies, prego, or post-prego, or 'ya know someone who's prego, where can I find cute, petite maternity clothes? And still have money in my wallet?
