Kim Kardashian pregnant

When I was pregnant, my clothing had one main requirement: comfort. I was mostly concerned with what would help support my growing belly on my slight frame, especially toward the end of my pregnancy when I developed symphysis pubic dysfunction (a fancy way of saying that my pelvic joint was unstable and caused me near constant pain whenever I moved). I was fortunate that during the latter half of my pregnancy I was focused on finishing my graduate thesis, thus fashion didn’t factor much into my days spent behind a computer screen or between library book shelves. In fact, my daily uniform of yoga pants, long t-shirts, a puffy vest, and comfy sneakers didn’t seem to phase me or the number of folks I came in contact with.

In retrospect, I consider myself very lucky. Keep reading »

Is It Inappropriate For “Forever 21″ To Sell Maternity Clothes In States With High Teen Pregnancy?


Budget-conscious mommies-to-be are surely excited about Forever 21‘s new line of maternity gear, love21maternity, which is available in Arizona, Alaska, California, Texas and Utah. Finally, cute pregnancy clothes that don’t look like a camping tent! But our friends at The Gloss noticed something of note: Arizona, California and Texas all have high teen pregnancy rates. A teen pregnancy counselor who spoke to CNN about the love21maternity line said that seeing maternity clothes in their stores will “desensitize” teen girls towards pregnancy. Sure, California and Texas have huge populations to begin with. But was the decision to sell maternity clothes in a store favored by teens, in places with lots of pregnant teens, a business-savvy decision? And isn’t that kind of — I dunno — icky? Keep reading »

Maternity Shapewear: Wrong Or Just?

Most of us wear shapewear to try to eliminate any hanging belly. But what if your pooch is something you really can’t get rid of? As in, you’re seven months pregnant and there is definitely a living person in there waiting to come out. Apparently, there’s quite a market for maternity shapewear. Take this getup by Blanqi, for example, an over-the-butt tank top shaper meant to smooth out lines. It also claims to lessen baby weight with its belly support and its “x-shaped back anchors and lifts reducing belly stress.” The question that remains: is it really necessary to wear shapewear when pregnant? Is it useless to try to make yourself seem slightly thinner when you’re obviously carrying? Or, have you tried pregnancy shapers and know them to make having a bun in the oven more comfortable (or more sexy in a dress)? Sound off in the comments below! [Bare Necessities] Keep reading »
