Maternity Clothes Are Truly Horrible
Apparently, all pregnant women should wear nothing but cheap-looking floral prints or horizontal stripes. Though retailers like ASOS and Boohoo are trying to make more stylish options, I can't shake the fact many maternity versions of straight-size garments just look weird (especially when so many of them are modeled by tall, slim models wearing fake baby bumps). So far, though I have embraced maternity jeans with all the enthusiasm of a 6-year-old at a McDonald's birthday party, the rest of the time I am trying to make my regular clothes last as long as possible. Given that my prepregnancy personal style tended toward "does this hide my stomach?" territory anyway, this hasn't been too hard.
