I can now add THAT to the list of maternity togs I've acquired in the past few weeks and months. To be honest, I really didn't think I would need these and frankly didn't understand why maternity underwear was even invented. I mean, none of my "unmentionables" even go over my stomach, so what's the big deal? Well, along with an expanding tummy I've noticed that my hips have expanded as well (yippee). Unfortunately I never took after my mom in that region and consequently never had slim hips, so the fact that they're getting bigger is bittersweet. The pinching and the ugly red lines from too-tight-chonies prompted me to bite the bullet and began to peruse websites for undergarments for us preggos.
I was pretty amazed at the selection, I really thought that I would be limited to different versions of the ever so lovely, white granny-panties, but was pleasantly surprised. There was lace, seamless, patterned, even thongs in lots of different colors!! Now, I'm not going to go into what I bought, but I got over $100 worth--hey I've got a little over 3 months left of pregnancy and who knows what my body will look like after our little man is born. I've heard to expect to look like I'm six months along after giving birth, so I figured they'll definitely be put to good use. Here's to underwear that doesn't bunch and fits just right!
