so maternity clothing tends to suck for one reason or another. usually because there's little to choose from and what you're left with is frumpy/boring/awful/ill-fitting.
so that's why i was at the mall last night. i thought i would totally score by finally checking out a maternity department in a department store. they would be sure to have heaps to choose from. but no. salespeople in both dillard's and foley's informed me they don't even have maternity departments. what?!?
ironically, only one piece of the clothing i have acquired so far is maternity: the maternity jeans. as luck would have it, we're well-ensconced in a fashion trend that makes the ordinary juniors racks look like a maternity motherload.
so today, i went to marshall's and only managed a nightie. i found two lovely, slinky, black, strappy affairs (that i would normally not wear, but pregnancy forces some frightening changes in fashion tastes). i tried them on. stunning from the front. like a parade float from the side.
and i'm only getting bigger.
if any of you out there ever get knocked up with your first, make sure to strong arm your shower hostesses into showering you in your sixth month when you still have some hope of finding something not completely offensive to wear and before you feel like you should be consigned to a heap of bed sheets until two months post partum.
