I now understand Mom Jeans

Because you can't wear the hip-hugger style jeans anymore after you have a baby. Especially if you had a C-section, there's this fat shelf of loose skin hanging over your low rise jeans like a floppy muffin top. So gross. LOL!

Re: I now understand Mom Jeans

  • AHAHAHA! I totally understand as well. I have the "shelf" from my c-section too. The doctor keeps saying it will tighten up and get better but it has been 3 months!

  • Ugh the shelf sucks. I always had a little pooch there and it's horrible now. I had a gift certificate to American eagle because my brother apparently thinks I'm 17 again. Haven't shopped there in 10 years lol so I bought skinny jeans. They barely button so I use the baby belly band I had for maternity pants hah. No shame. the jeans are cute and maybe someday I will fully fit into them!
  • I was totally thinking this yesterday! I put on a pair of prepreg jeans and had a major muffin top and thought that's why mom jeans are high waisted lol!

  • I was complaining about this to my hubby yesterday. I would love to be able to see my lady bits without having to pull my stomach out of the way first. 

    On the bright side, my jeans I bought 3 weeks PP are falling down as I have officially lost 40 of my 53 lbs weight gain.... I just can't wait to lose the muffin top too!

    I stored away all of my maternity shirts and full panel pants, but I kept out 2 of the demi-panel ones I had.... man, nothing beats the comfort!! And that bit of height hides the muffin top decently. I'm not too ashamed of it, but I know I need to bite the bullet and accept that I probably will never again fit in to my pre-preg jeans that I've had since High School and buy some new pants. And even if I could, it would not be a pretty sight :p

  • No joke. I'm currently wearing granny panties so big that they practically come up to my belly button and I don't even care because they hold my fat shelf in. I didn't even have a section, I've just turned into a fatty.

    Hahah! So true. Disgusted with my whole belly area. It would help if I put down the It's it's and did some crunches, but this constantly crying kid is making me stress eat.

  • I'm so glad I saw this post today. I am having serious muffin top fat shelf issues. WTF am I supposed to wear back to work in a week. Shopping is making me so depressed.
    I have been trying on pants two sizes above what I wore before and they still look awful.

  • ooooi I am still wearing maternity pants and dont give two $hits what anyones thinks, lol. I can technically "fit" in my PPG jeans, but the shelf is in full effect :/

    Im trying not to stress it to hard though, it took 9.5 months to make this fat, its going to take a while to make it "normal" again.
