Frustrated with maternity clothes! (vent)

So many of them are made to be worn under your belly, and lucky me is carrying so low that there is no under my belly! Well, there is, but I'd be wearing my pants down in the nether regions! So now a lot of my pants that I have, I can't wear because they are too tight around the bottom of my belly, and if I go bigger, they fall off. I tried looking today for some pants that go over my belly, but they were all kind of matronly looking and I got really depressedChat Icon Just needed to vent that.

Rachel,

Im having the same problems - very frustrating! I cant find anything that fits right. everything is either too big or just plain uncomfortable. The under the belly pantys fit me but arent that comfy - the over the belly are too big even in a small. and I feel like all of my shirts lay funny - they all tent out. ugh. I miss my clothes Chat Icon just wanted to tell you I totally feel your pain.

I had the same problem so I went right to half panel and full panel pants and it made a huge difference.

I guess that's what I'm going to have to do. But all the half and full panel stuff I've seen has been prettyChat Icon so far. I guess I need to keep looking.

I bought some kahkis and black pants from Old Navy for work with a full panel and I bought jeans there too - boot cut, really cute.

I bought some pants at Motherhood too for work with a full panel and their jeans are OK (Old Navys are more comfy because they're stretch).

Let me see if I can find some pics...
OK first 2 pics are from Old Navy and last pic is from Motherhood. These pants are all realy comfortable for me and they come in short lengths - which is what I need. Hope this helps!

Thanks so much! I was at Old Navy yesterday, and the problem is that the full panel ones are either too small on me, or the next size up falls off of me, so I think I'll have to try Motherhood. I'll let you know how it goes! Thanks again!Chat Icon

I never found the pants in Old Navy ...I just had to order them online. But Motherhood is great, I like the one in Macys at the Walt Whitman.

what are you looking for Rachel? Maybe there are some full panel shorts/jeans at the consignment store down here where I work. I could mail them up to you.

Rachel,

I'm also having same problem so I feel your pain. Am carrying so low that the under the belly panels are either way uncomfortable or revealing. I broke down and boought the Old Navy full panel jeans and they really do fall down all day long it's so annoying. I'm sorry I don't have any suggestions b/c I haven't come up with a solution yet.

Have you seen some of the styles too? If I see one more cutsie print thing I'm going to vomit. I'm pregnant not a circus animal. I can't wear someof that stuff to work - nobody would take me seriosuly.

Sorry, it must be my hormones.

By the way, I love your term nether regionsChat Icon Chat Icon
