I am a big girl. Not ginormous, but 5'8" and 230 is pretty big. Luckily I am tall, so I carry it well, and I tend to lose weight during pg at least for the first two trimesters.
What I can't understand is where are all the nice maternity clothes for us plus sized ladies? "They" say that over 50% of the population is overweight, but why are there no clothes? Are we supposed to jiggle around naked in front of every one?
I am trying to find some decent office clothes for this time around. Last time I was pregnant (six years ago, same seasons) JCP had some great career blouses, not anymore. I like the vertical striped 3/4, short or long sleeved button down with collar, or solid colors. No horizonal stripes, now frou frou flowers and definitely NO clingy body hugging styles. Is this so hard to do? Even Motherhood has a crappy selection and my budget is limited. I'm looking on ebay and having some luck there, and plan on going to another town where there are a lot of thrift stores over the holiday break, but damn, it should not be this hard!
Okay, vent over. I know I am not the only one dealing with this...I wish I could just work in my comfy tees and yoga pants. No such luck :(
