My Dirty Little Secret
Screw anonymity ~ it's time to come clean.
My daughter has been outside my womb for almost 3 years now and I still wear maternity clothes!
I am not a flat-chested, 14 year-old beanstalk. I have hips, and thighs, and a lot of flab thanks to the weight I put on carrying a human being inside me. I don't want to wear clothes that cling to me. I want to hide my rolls, not define them with spandex. I want to be able to lift my arm over my head and not subject the people around me to pasty skin and stretch marks. I choose to wear my maternity shirts because they are longer, there is more fabric. Sure, I probably look ridiculous. In fact, my hubby has even said so on occasion, but I'm comfortable. Listen, I'm a young mom. I don't want to be wearing maternity shirts. I want to wear cute t-shirts. So Issac, Stella, Calvin and heck, even the people over at Kohl's and Old Navy (where I do most of my shopping) can you please help a mother out. Try designing clothes for real women with real bodies. I am so sick of always hiking up my jeans so my ass crack doesn't show. I want a wardrobe that flatters me, not one that shields me.
