My pet peeve of today is...being "plus-sized" and having to shop for maternity clothes, the only place you can go to get things other than muumuus, is online. So, I found some nice pants, nice blouses, a bathing suit...ordered them. Fine. Now, it's time for me to find underwear, right? Apparently, the hip, chic thing for pregnant ladies right now is "pregnancy thongs" to go with their "pregnancy low-waist jeans." Does this bother anybody else????
I mean...I was pretty adverse to wearing a thong even when NOT pregnant...and now, the one time women are extra prone to things like hemhorroids and yeast infections, we're supposed to wear THONGS???? EEEEEYEW! OUCH! (I also have a problem with the drop-waist-pants-thing even when people aren't pregnant...but now, it's like marketers are marketing toward, and even encouraging teenage girls to get pregnant because they can still "look cool.")
So now my choices seem to be, wear a thong, or wear underwear that pull all the way up to underneath my boobs, look awful, and aren't pretty but in fact pretty counterproductive at helping me adjust to a new body image. I'm so frustrated, I'm ready to scream! When I was pregnant with my first two, they had cute, comfortable underthings (which I can't find anymore). Anybody have advice that doesn't involve the brand, "Bravado?"
(Otherwise...uh...thanks for listening, I'm done now....)
