2273 Show the bump maternity fashion is just ugly

There. I've said it and I'm not sorry. Clingy, tight maternity fashions showing plumbers' crack and cleavage just make pregnant women look uncomfortable and unglam, with a bursting sausage look, the opposite of what I think they believe they are doing. (Not that fashion in general makes any sense.) Low rise jeans with tube tops--please save that outfit for housecleaning. Don't go out in public and subject the rest of us to it. Pregnant women are beautiful. They are our future. Today's maternity clothes (and I actually can't tell if they just moved up a size or two or bought a specially designed outfit) make the women look like they grabbed something out of the box meant for Good Will and are in denial about what's going on.

Amen and Amen!!!

When I was pregnant with my first about a decade ago my mother bought me a pregnancy fitness magazine (she's a bit obsessed with fitness if she thought a person who was puking every 10 seconds ought to be exercising too) and on the cover was a woman in a two piece bathing suit. A single friend of mine came over and saw it and wondered the same thing I did...who on earth would want to see a hugely (or even not hugely) pregnant woman in a bathing suit? Takes beer gut to a new level if you ask me. Glad I'm not the only one who thinks so.
