Loathing in Las Vegas....erm...North Carolina

Have I mentioned how much I hate maternity pants lately? Because I do. I'm not sure if it's because I'm plus sized, if they just aren't made right or what, but they are th emost uncomfortable and unattractive clothing items, I've ever put on my body. (and I've worn corsets, girdle's and a myriad of other contraptions that weren't deemed clothing). Why? Simply, they do not stay up!

the fit snugly in the hips and thighs, the length is good, but they have huge awkward belly panels that do not stay in place so when I walk the pants slide down leavin ghte crotch at my knees and my ass exposed because they take my underwear with them. There is possibly nothin on earth that makes you feeel more unattractive than exposing winter white flesh of the hip or dimpled butt crack while waddling through your place of employment or the grocery store doing the awkward heave/yank dance to keep your pants up. It's embarrassing.

By the end of the day I'm exhausted simply from maintainig my outfit and immediately slip on the nearest pair of sweatpants and tank top. I feel bad. I want to look cute and feel sexy for my husband but its kind of hard to do when you hate everything about your clothes. I may burn them after the baby is born. This is why I have squeezed into prepregnancy "fat" jeans for so long because the tightness in the waist was far more comfortable than the torture routine of maternity pants. 35 days to go though and I just can't squeeze anymore.

I'm "this" close to wearing yoga pants to work. I'm counting down and hoping that I can return to prepregnancy pants very quickly post partum. The day of would not be too soon but 2 weeks would suffice. My sweatpants can be worn till then!
