I went to H&M the other day and went to look for new maternity clothes, as my bump is getting to big for the normal clothes in my closet. On the way towards the maternity clothes department I passed all of this nice pastels and french shapes and also marine clothes here and there, which made me very excited to think that the maternity clothes might look similar, because then I would not need to change my style just because I am pregnant.
You can imagine my horror when most of the clothes were black, grey and other dull colours. No patterns, the shapes were not flattering (being pregnant does not mean I want to look like I’m wearing a tent!). Sure, you use the maternity clothes a short time in your life, but is it that hard to make them more flattering towards the female body? Is it so that mothers-to-be is not a group that gets efforts in making nice clothes, because we actually HAVE to buy those clothes, we do not really have a choice? I am starting to think that this is the truth. Question is, how can we change it?
