Why is this subject to a blog post you ask?
I have discovered a few things after purchasing some fantastic new maternity jeans : (motherhood)
a) that I love the complete over the tummy stretchy band these jeans have. I never knew anything over the tummy when you are pregnant could feel SO good - but these - ahhhhh. MAJOR Comf. Seriously, those sceptical should give them a try. It is like getting a gentle hug, all day. Holds you in AND up... Shouldn't that be a requisite for all clothing?
b) No. More. Muffin. Top. Need I say more?
c) Jeans have a far greater chance of staying up with all that extra material, or at least are far less likely to show any... umm... plumber's... umm... you know. On that note, what is with maternity pants??? Seriously, this is the first pair I have ever worn that I wasn't forever yanking on to try to get them to stay where they should.
d) that when you tuck your g's under this, it helps them stay up even better. It is like cotton-y glue! AWESOME!!!
BUT: When you tuck your top into them, and then put your bra over... guess who loses in this ultimate fabric tug-of-war???
I'll give you a hint: rhymes with Moobs.
The girls become the ultimate losers and are pulled down and squished to look (dare I say) WORSE than post-nursing! I didn't know it was possible to make them look even less cheerless than wearing no bra at all. But let me tell you - it IS possible with bra-over-tucked-in-holding-up-your-pants.
Which brings me back to the original question.
Bra under (girls stay where they should and despite their comparison to a much larger tummy, are actually looking pretty dang good these days)
OR bra over (girls look saggy and the bra proceeds to slide up ultimately a making a friendly smiley face on not so friendly turf. Ouch and Ug all at the same time.)
