So I have a slight issue with maternity clothes. I am super tiny, in every which way, height, weight, frame. I am just small. I am 17 weeks tomorrow and my jeans haven't fit for about 3 weeks. I have been wearing lulu lemon track pants and recently purchased some maternity pants which surprisingly fit. I thought pants would be a huge issue because they always are, since Iam only 4'9".
Turns out it's tops that are now the problem, but they have never been in the non-pregnant world. I don't quite need maternity tops yet but I went into a maternity store just to see what was out there and how they fit. Well obviously the belly was too large, which I expected at this point however I had the smallest size they carried, an XS and it was way to long in length, in the arms and to baggy in the shoulders and arms too. Shoulders and arms don't change, as far as I know when your pregnant. But this stuff didn't fit at all. If it doesn't fit when I actually need to wear them I don't know what I'll do. I wont have clothes. Normal tops won't fit me right and neither will maternity clothes. I am seriously concerened. Not to mention very few items came in XS. Most stuff was hideous, all the nice stuff only existed in S. I feel cheated and left out almost. Like there isn't anything for me just because I am small and pregnant. They make plus size clothes. Why not petite clothes? My pants are petite but tops don't exist in that sizing. Its embarassing and insulting. I felt like a fool in that store. Everyone else in there was happily shopping away picking out the cutest stuff and I was left with the crap I wouldn't even dress a dog in!
