Why can I not find flowy clothes that skim over my tummy for a reasonable price?
Or else, I would like classic, modest yet flattering clothing?
Arrgh, I need to resume my search for a seamstress.
How cute would I be chasing after Miss Priss in one of these ensembles?
Colorful, simple clothing. They have no words emblazoned across the stomach, nor do they show one's belly button. From the abundance of skin tight styles on the market, I must be the only person whose waist is immediately replaced by love handles the minute I find out I am with child. No amount of ruching can disguise that. Why are the flowy tops which abound at Anthropologie or the drapey numbers I recently purchased at Gap not available for maternity? I know I can buy larger sizes, but then the shoulders and sleeves swallow me, and the lengths rapidly become too short.
Whine. Whine. Whine.
If I could design and produce my own clothes, I would make a simple capsule wardrobe of leggings and skinny pants, with A-line sleeveless tunics that I could layer with long sleeved tees, and short A-line swingy dresses. Some swingy soft long sleeved tunic tops. Long cardigans in bright colors. All machine washable and appropriate for toddler chasing, yet presentable and chic.
Instead, I am presented with this as a cute and affordable option.
If the poor model looks lumpy, a mere mortal like myself has no chance. And this offering is from Gap! Don't even get me started on Motherhood Maternity's offerings.
I will quit complaining, and go back to my quest for loose swingy tops. Have any of y'all worn those Piko tops while pregnant? I've thought about trying that, but I am almost in the third trimester. How long would they last me?
If I am ever pregnant again, I am creating my damn capsule collection well beforehand when I still have some energy. Better start learning to sew now.
