So I was somewhat amused to find that people find belting a pregnant belly kind of annoying. Most of the annoyance comes from the belief that the pregnant women are making sure you know they're with child, and not fat. Soooorrrrt of?
I mean, with my gigantic boobs and growing belly I'd rather not look like an egg with 4 toothpicks jammed in it. Doesn't really have so much to do with weight - I'm just trying to create ANY shape. And most maternity tops try to do the same - creating an empire waist or coming in with elastic right under the belly. I guess it just doesn't seem as obnoxious when the garment is doing the work for you?
I'm not arguing against the article, I belt for vanity and am OK with getting eye rolls for it (but I don't think it's uncomfortable as many commenters suggest). Just thought it was funny anyone felt strongly about it. (And have you guys read Shamepuff? It's interesting and can be constructive - sometimes the comments devolve a little into OMGSTUPIDUGLYDUMBBLOGGERS but I just try to ignore that).
On a final note - holy smokes, it's hot.
