I got some 'fan mail' yesterday....a distant friend who read my blog ordered me a maternity shirt that says "Does this baby make me look fat?" and it arrived in the mail yesterday. TOO CUTE! :)
I will post pictures of me in the shirt as soon as I can.
I'm trying on clothes out of my closet, stuff I haven't worn in years, and finding about a 5% success rate - the other 95% is piling up, waiting to be re-hung, and I have no clue when I will get around to actually hanging them back up. Over the past 5 or 6 years I have been almost every size between a 16 and a 28, but most of my wardrobe is 18-20. Right now my thighs and my huge knockers keep me in size 22-24, and my growing belly will soon demand at least a 24.
Time to go shopping, right? NOT. Time to blog about how pissed I am, once again, at the fashion industry as a whole for discriminating against 'real women'.
I'm really trying to figure out, WHY are there no maternity clothes in any store above a size "1x"? 1x translates into a size 16-18 in most things. I found some maternity jeans online in a 3x, ordered them, and they finally arrived - turns out they are "3x Petite" and I am 5'6" tall - NOT petite.
This is why it is so important to be able to TRY STUFF ON in the stores.
Plus size stores like Lane Bryant don't sell maternity clothes, and maternity stores like Motherhood don't sell Plus Size clothes...
Seriously, it is bad enough in the fashion world that people seem to think large women only want to wear loud floral prints, etc. But now the fashion world has decided that fat women don't get pregnant, or pregnant women don't get fat?!?!
COME ON, PEOPLE!
