All of my shirts are too short. - Page 2

Thread Starter 

I went through my closet yesterday and packed up 2 bins of clothes, mostly summery but all WAY too short/small at this point.  It's full on autumn here...50s and maybe 60s but chilly in the morning.  I found 2 longer shirts in buried in my closet that look like that might be long enough!  Nothing super trendy or sexy but I'll take what I can get at this point.  And yes, my pants hurt me too!  It's also sad that I saved some of my maternity jeans, which don't fit at all right now including the thighs, for post partum.... (as if to say "after I have the baby and lose 30#, I might be able to fit back into my maternity jeans"....how utterly depressing that I'm such a beast right now).

Ugh, I don't want to even think about it. I am between 55 and 60 lbs heavier than I was a year ago :( I cannot wait to pull out my rollers and get back on my bike in December! I'll be in my maternity stuff for a while simply cause I don't have anything else that fits :p

 

We've been in the 80s still I cannot wait till the weather changes for good! I need time to get all the kids clothes switched out!

I've resorted to DH's boxer shorts :p I have one pair of yoga pants that fit, but they are holy :p

Woohoo!  I scored a pair of jeans off a friend who recently delivered her baby. They are one size larger than I usually wear and I can actually *sit* in them without feeling like I'm being cut in half!!  Between these jeans and my overalls (which make me into a great denim beachball), I can probably ride out the rest of this pregnancy.  Funny how excited I can get over a pair of hand-me-down jeans but these days, comfort is everything! ;-)

I found a shirt in my closet this weekend, a VERY long maternity top/tunic that cover my belly.  I wore it today with a pair of cropped black yoga pants (and of course my black flip flops since my feet are swollen hooves) and when my husband came home, he said "well look at you, wearing clothes that fit!"

Yes!  I actually felt normal going out in public without my the underneath of my belly exposed.

I'll need to wash this shirt tomorrow, LOL.

Won't help the shirts, but I ordered a black one of these last month and got another one in the store last week. I plan more kids and this was like putting on my pjs!!!!

The black one was about 8 or 10" shorter than the gray one. But the black was online and the gray was in the store. Weird. But the thing folds over so I got both to fit fine when I folded the gray over. I'm only 5' and it came up to my arm pits before I folded it. The black one was great once it was washed. Both came to ankle length. I have a 39" thickest part of the belly and the med is fine for me. If you have a plan of other kids or aren't due till later in Nov, I would totally get one of these.
