When you’re pregnant, you will automatically kiss your 3 inch high heels goodbye and settle for:
Comfie shoes with sturdy heels or no heels at all.
(Forgive me, I still wear my high heels ocassionally)
You’ll get sucked into buying anything that has the ’safe for mommy, safe for baby’ tagline.
Shopping for maternity clothes in Malaysia is like striking lottery and discovering a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Up until last week, I could fit into my jeans. I still CAN but I noticed when I sit, my little bump does seem squashed and it becomes a little uncomfortable for me AND I can’t imagine how it must be for peanut.
So I resorted to buying a maternity belly band.
It’s a simple band that you may use to hold your bump properly. Also, it allows you to unzip the button of your pants/skirts a little while placing this over it so that there’s more space for your belly to breathe.
However, as much as I LOVE this concept, it really doesn’t quite work. It has its way of moving up causing jeans to unzip completely and become loose.
Feeling frustrated, I stepped into Jusco and made a bee line to the maternity section. Granted their maternity dresses and tops suck big time, I still decided to try on the maternity jeans. I was almost certain this jeans wasn’t going to be a good fit (yet alone flatter me!) but the next thing you know, I was already queuing up at the counter purchasing 2 jeans. All for the price of RM60 each!!
The secret is in the bump holder that makes it soooo comfie!! The cut isn’t too bad too, at least it flatters me. My only gripe is that you need to wear a slightly longer top so that the band doesn’t show or make you look disproportionate.
They’re right when they say the most comfortable clothes you’ll ever wear are maternity clothes!!
Which is why I even saw some non-pregnant older women buying maternity pants too
