Thankfully, with gratitude towards my cousin who lent me many maternity clothes, I have not had to shop for too many clothes along the way. Last night, I decided that I really needed another pair of pants for work. Here are some thoughts I have for designers and makers of this clothing line.
- Horizontal stripes are not a good look for too many people who are not pregnant. They really are disturbing to find on maternity shirts. Please, don't make my midsection look broader.
- Logos should not fall over bellies or boobies. Unless you're paying me to wear your product, I'm not advertising for you.
- I have never really been a fan of words spelled out across booties. Maybe that's because I'd rather not accent that body part on me. Actually, I really don't care reading "Dawgs" or "Pinkalicious" or "Hottie" on anyone's rear. Personal preference, I guess. This feeling greatly extends to a pregnant woman's shorts. Let's leave that fabric swatch free and clear of messages.
- Similarly, messages on t-shirts are out of control! I can already see that you have a "sweet bun in (your) oven."
Again, I don't want to post anything on any part of my body, really ever, but especially right now. I hope that some marketer is not thinking of attaching an automatic noisemaker to some item of clothing that starts beeping when a pregnant woman walks backwards.
And please, if you see a pregnant woman putting air in her tires, please offer to help. It's just the right thing to do.
