Why, why, why do no stores make any clothes that look good on pregnant women with LARGE bellies??!!?? Right now, I look full term, and I still have quite a ways to go. I've heard this complaint from other women who had this problem near the end of their pregnancy. So it scares me a little because I'm having this problem now.
I've been trying to find something to wear to my shower next weekend, and it's not working! I went to so many stores: Motherhood, Target, Old Navy, and JC Penney. I could find nothing! I can't wear dresses because it makes me look like a tent. The I think if the dress were more form fitting, it would look fine, but all the dresses just hang off my belly and make me look huge. So I try to find a shirt. Well for some reason, they want to put these crazy prints on maternity clothes. Not real smart! Crazy prints do NOT look good when you have a huge belly! Please designers - can you make plain shirts! And dark colors! I also couldn't find any form fitting shirts which look better on me since really the only part of me that is getting bigger is my belly. I guess I should be grateful for that at least! But it does make it difficult to find a good size. Right now mediums fit everywhere except for my belly. Larges fit my belly but are huge everywhere else and make look big. It's annoying.
Anyway, after spending way too long at stores tiring myself out, I came back home. I was so frustrated. I almost started crying in JC Penney! Thanks hormones! I do have a top from Motherhood that I like, but it is getting tight on me, so I decided to go online and see if they had it in a large. Thank god they did! So I am getting that shirt. Of course, since I waited so long I have to pay extra for quick shipping, but oh well. It's better than looking like a tent!
