Maternity and Post Maternity Dressing


Well ladies, 30 women were polled, and survey says HELP!!!!

Well ladies, 30 women were polled, and survey says HELP!!!!

I want to thank all the mommies and mommies-to-be for taking part in our survey.  As a stylist and wardrobe consultant, I really gained insight into preg and post preg dressing issues.  Not only was it insightful, but it was pivotal in finding helpful ways to best serve you.

I have to start by saying, you ladies cracked me up. The humor, wit and savvy sarcasm left me in stitches. I busted out laughing at some of your replies.  One woman actually called shopping at Destination Maternity “the 7th circle of hell.” Another woman, when asked about buying undergarments, replied, “Underwear? Forget trying to find a nursing bra in my size without taking out a mortgage!” According to the survey, there were few lucky mommies that got through dressing dilemmas unscathed. I commend you ladies in your ability to fit, shop and keep it neatly together. Whether genetics played a part or not, I’m glad it was smooth sailing nonetheless.

As for the rest of my mommy surveyors? Hang in there! I’m here to help.
