|Curvey women must never get pregnant according to fashion designers.|
Chasing DS since April 2007 and pumping for DD March 2013.
Anyone care to chat about clothes?
I wanted to share that I found some stretchy/workout type pants at kmart for $15 that fit me. They are a regular size XL maternity, but I was wearing a size 22/24 jeans up until about 5 months pregnant, and these fit and are soooooooooo comfy. Cute, boot-cut too! In case anyone needs some pants to wear! The matching jacket (it's like a warmup style) also fits me comfortably in XL.
What are other mamas doing about having a coat or something warm to wear? No way will my normal coat fit me now! I was thinking about getting a poncho like this one...
But not sure if I'll feel HUMONGOUS in it.
Where are you ladies finding comfy nursing things? Most Old Navy maternity stuff doesn't fit me, but I have managed to find one top that does, and it could be used as a nursing top too... I'm going to try to find more! They don't even show it on their website, but it's kind of got a wrap style top so you could easily pop out one boob at a time
Also kind of a bummer that most Old Navy's near me seem to be phasing out both their plus-size AND maternity sections! What is up with that?!?! Fashion Bug got rid of their maternity line too, and they used to carry plus maternity... of course they wait to do that until NOW! : I walked by those racks so many times in my pre-pregnant days...
What about soft, comfy, cute nursing bras? I wear a 44C bra right now! Who knows what that will be later! But most bras I find that are a 44 tend to be huuuuge... they come all the way up to my clavicles and have giant cups. The truth is my breasts are actually just a normal C cup... I don't need all that! I'm just bigger around. Most bras with molded cups SWIM on my breasts and are too tight around!!! : So hard to find bras for plus-sized mamas who are not as well-endowed up there! I haven't seen any nursing bras at Motherhood or anywhere else that would a) fit and b) be comfortable too. I found one on the Lane Bryant Catalog site but I'm not sure I like it.
OK, that is it... just tossing around zaftig pregnant mama thoughts!!!!
