They may be funny looking, but ahhhh the comfort! Why is it unacceptable to wear these little pieces of heaven all the time?! I guess the full panel type might be a little bit of overkill, being as though I'm only 10wks pregnant, but the elastic waistband is surely something that I could get used to.
Only problem: The selections are awful! At least, around here anyway. Take Old Navy for example. Their "maternity department" consists of random ugly shirts all mixed up on a rack way in the back corner of the children's section, plus 2 colors of corduroys stocked only in sizes 2 and 6, and a hodgepodge assortment of jeans, including some that appear cute at first glance but then turn out to be skinny jeans once you pull them out of the single over-crowded rack they are all jammed onto (and as far as I'm concerned, maternity skinny jeans = no thank you!).
I will take myself to Motherhood Maternity as soon as I can justify it. For now, two pairs of jeans to throw into the rotation when the bloat gets bad will be sufficient.
