You Should Be Wearing Maternity Clothes Right Now (Yes! You!)

You Should Be Wearing Maternity Clothes Right Now (Yes! You!) | Columbia SC Moms BlogIt doesn’t matter if you’ve never been pregnant, if your youngest child is 19 years old, or if you don’t even want kids – you should be wearing maternity clothes.

Now before you dismiss me, hear me out.

The holidays are over and I will be the first to admit that from Halloween to New Year’s, my diet has been even more atrocious than usual. Even the most conscientious dieter is bound to gain a few holiday pounds. For those of us who may lack self-control, that number may be a little higher. Or a lot higher. No judgment.

Believe it or not, maternity fashion is no longer an oxymoron.

But aren’t maternity clothes ugly?!

Gone are the days of maternity clothes that shout from the rooftops: My normal pants don’t fit! Maternity clothes are now stylish, affordable and deceptive. There’s never been a better time to wear what makes you happy – and if you’re like me, what makes you the happiest is acceptance. I accept that I have never been and never will be a size 2. My body has changed and continues to change, not only as a mom but as a woman who is growing older, wiser, and maybe a little more spherical.

Love the you that you are right now

Even if you haven’t packed on some holiday weight, you deserve to bask in the kindness and comfort of maternity clothes. I’m not talking muumuus; I’m talking cozy sweaters, tunics, and pants that stretch for days. No one is saying maternity clothes are the key to world peace, but maybe they are. There’s only one way to find out!

Maybe if we all allowed ourselves a little bit of generosity in the form of an elastic waistband cleverly disguised under a long blouse, we could pass that compassion on to everyone we meet. Let’s give stretchy pants a chance.
