latest gripe.

April 6, 2010

I know I am not the tallest of the tall; there are friends of mine that are taller, with longer, lankier legs, but I stand above the average joe. (or josephina). Why is it that maternity pants can’t come in longer lengths? Why is it that, as soon as you become pregnant, you must start dressing like a “mom?” I won’t do it.

Luckily, it has only been in the past few weeks that maternity clothes have even become somewhat necessary and I can still get away with leggings in most situations.

But really. I know Heidi Klum has tried, among others, to actually produce clothing that isn’t flowered or tent-like for pregnant women, but those things still make me look bigger (and wider) than I am. As a matter of fact, I can feel my face, feet and hands swell when I try them on– just in response to rayon and pink. Not nice. I have found more success with long tank tops, stretchy dresses and old cardigans than any maternity store. (plus cute shoes and jewelry).

I thought we were all celebrating my body? Why are people trying to wrap it in ugliness. I won’t give in.
