Hey Ladies, (ive also posted this in the due in nov13 group too)
I hope its not just me and my awkward (boring) fashion sense but are the maternity clothes out there just.... Dull?!?!
im only 19 weeks, and having huge problems trying to find affordable (not cheep but not expensive) trousers, more than anything... and the shops are either out of stock in the size i need (creeping up to an 18 now) or dont stock it in that size at all?!
also maternity bras.... im not massive chested (36F) but all the ones i have tried on and had to buy (as my nice normal ones now only just cover my niplets) are all like potato sacks!!! i can understand the importance of not wearing wired bras... but when the wired bras make my boobs look 'boob' shaped then im gonna bloody wear them! arghh sorry girls about my rant, but am feeling rather down about clothes in general. i know its so meanial and i should have better things to worry about but when my friends and family are so immaculately and nicely dressed i feel that my lounging trousers and vest and cardi arent quite suitable.
I think my next carear choice will be desigining nice, affordable pretty and practical maternity clothing.

Sadly I think that maternity clothes are designed for comfort & not 'style' meaning that many pregnant woman often end up wearing the same pair of maternity trousers/jeans on a nigh daily basis with very basic loungerie & 'floaty' tops to fit their bumps.
Unless you shop online for your maternity items your choice of the rack is very limited indeed. I think it's assumed once you're pregnant you don't need to look attractive anymore (why would we want to look nice for our partners, we don't need to have sex for 9mths right?) would be nice if some more mums & wannabe mums did actually set up maternity business as they would probably understand the desired wants more accurately.
