A goofy body shape question
Okay, you experienced mamas, this one is for you.
In my previous two pregnancies, I always felt kind of mystified at the notion of maternity underwear, because... well, why? I never really changed shape much around my bottom, so I just didn't understand why you'd need 'em.
Well, now my regular undies are killing me. They're driving me up the wall every day! Most any skirt or dress, and even many pairs of pants, look ridiculous because every single pair of underpants I own is pinching me and making awful bulges all over. Shoot, more than once I've gotten fed up and hustled my purse into the ladies' room so I could stuff my underwear in there and go commando for the rest of the day! Ay yi yi!
So, my question: Do I start with just going a size up in regular underwear, or should I give up and go straight to maternity unmentionables?
What a silly thing to be taking up my time, but man, it bugs me every single day.
She's here! Baby Yoshiko arrived on 2/7/15, and now we are a family of five.
