To the Maternity Designers of the World

I’d just like to tell you that I do not look good in jewel tones. Please stop making EVERYTHING in DARK, DRAB colors!!!!

It’s tough enough to go shopping when you are 20 pounds heavier than you normally are, with a big ole belly in front, well knowing that what you are buying will only be worn for a few months. I have gone to the big box maternity store with nothing but a pair of jeans to show for it and have fruitlessly searched various department stores for clothes to no avail. I have no choices ANYWHERE!!! And there isn’t a Gap Maternity within 100 miles of me. Oye. Not like their color palette is much better.

And the Nicole Richie line? A hundred and twenty bucks  for a gray flowy bohemian-ish cardigan? Really? Not everybody is the offspring of a wealthy musician.

I’ve ordered this pattern from Burda:

I’m hopeful that *maybe* it’ll work out. Too bad that the model doesn’t look pregnant at all.

  1. Dark and drab seems to be the color when the economy goes into the toilet. Do you have a good second hand store around? They might have good maternity stuff that’s a couple years out of date, and brighter!

  2. I know one woman who wore scrub pants (you can get em at Walmart) and her husbands button down shirts for her whole maternity. Clearly she didn’t have to dress up for work, though.

  3. that’s really cute!

  4. its cute-here’s hoping it works out. Knit material is on sale at JoAnn’s this week!

  5. AruB3S Excellent article, I will take note. Many thanks for the story!
