Maternity wear.. pah!!!!!!!!

It really is.. pah!

I want to wear nice clothes. I DO NOT want to wear a sack or some ridiculously insipid clothes.

Can someone please go and tell Mom & Me stores that! It was the most upsetting...my visit to the store. The thing is I am quite happy wearing my old nice Cotton World tops - I don't want to hide my belly or anything.  Cotton World has lovely cotton tees, which is really thin and comfortable to wear. They just stretch over you, the right way.. without making you feel constricted.

Then I have pairs of shorts, Abercombie & Fitch and Cotton World again - which I love wearing. What I am missing is my pair of jeans. I have 4 pairs and 2 are redundant now. There are 2 I can wear but the doc has now advised me to give it up. She was the one who asked me to go buy maternity wear.

So I went to the Mom & Me store. I was really upset, I cannot tell you how much. Not only are the bottoms ugly, they are ridiculously overpriced!!!! 2K for a pair of this baggy green 3/4ths. Can you imagine! Even higher than beautifully fitted Levis!!! Just because you don't get maternity wear in India.

Even worse - if I say Mothercare, what comes to your mind? I walk into Shoppers Stop with the same intent of picking up nice maternity wear. There is this big giant board that announces in capital letters MOTHERCARE. And I find only baby stuff there. Dude, who named this store Mothercare. Go check a dictionary. It is mothercare and not babycare. There was not a single thing for a woman in that part of the store. And if that is Shopper Stop's doing, of not stocking stuff related to moms, then WELL!!!!!

As you can see - its incredibly frustrating. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.........I don't want to wear drab bedsheets. I want to wear nice stuff. Why doesn't anyone understand this. Stupid companies.

Someone I know bought material and got it all stitched.. the dresses. I, for one, don't have so much patience.

I think I will stick to M size at Cotton World.. soft soft comfortable beautiful material I want against my skin. Had I seen any company person there, I would have slapped them hard. Silly asses.

It's true, the maternity wear available in India is really frumpy & depressing. I think it comes from the whole "you shouldn't show off your baby bump to avoid nazar" line of thinking. You get such sexy maternity wear abroad - everything has lycra so it's not only comfortable, it also shows off the bump and there's no compromise on style. Why don't you check ASOS and Topshop websites - they may have maternity wear and they offer free shipping worldwide!

Yeah probably evil eye is the reason why people dont show it off. But Scarlett, its really depressing to see such clothes. Please get pregnant in another country please!!

True..maternity wear is ridiculously overpriced.. My sis who recently gave birth also had the same problem. Try First cry: http://www.firstcry.com/Casual-Wear/21/222

It seems to have some decent ones.. my sis bought a baby bag from them. They delivered it 2nd day.

I went on a similar hunt for a friend of mine, and remember how ridiculously overpriced three or four pieces of clothes were hanging. Nothing to choose from, each one equally non-likable and expensive!

@melee Tell me about it. Like I said, the best thing is to go to cotton world or any other place and pick a size larger!!

try another outlet for mothercare. i found perfect jeans there when i was in month no. 6 and even though i wore them only a few months, it was such a relief to get out of salwar kurtas!! also, i remember seeing these ultra cute denim dungarees that you can team up with your cotton world tees. don't give up. its there for you to hunt up. :)
