When You Need Maternity Clothes And You're Not Pregnant, You Know It's Time For A Diet

If you read my blog even semi-regularly, you will know that I'm a plus sized woman. That's all fine and dandy on a normal day, but when it comes to shopping at certain places, I'm at wit's end.

I'm not so much bothered by the selection available, as much as I am when a store puts the plus sized section and the maternity section side by side. I'll be thumbing through the racks, moving along until I come across something that catches my eye, only to pull it out and have it be a maternity piece!

What IS that??? Just because I'm larger, does not mean I'm PREGNANT. I'm sure pregnant women can wear plus sized clothing, but plus sized women can't really wiggle into maternity clothes. I'm even more irked when the maternity item is just what I was looking for; not only is it not my size, but it has an extra yard of material in the front for the belly tent.

If I ever get to the point where I need maternity clothes and I'm not pregnant, I'll be dialing Jenny Craig so fast, my phone will burst into flames.

I am incredibly behind on reading and commenting, but I had to say I completely agree with you on this. Target seems to be the worst store for this around here. So frustrating!
