I have been an emotional wreak today.

  • It all started with me going online to try and find a bra for myself but the only website i could find that sells a 50K bra didnt have any in stock and would take 3-4 weeks or longer to get me one, and i desperately need one now as the one i have is WAY too small. Then i started trying to find maternity clothes or even plus size clothes that would fit me and couldnt find anything bigger than a size 28 which just added to the emotional wreak. To top everything off DH is being a grump because he is stressed out cause we need to get out of this house and we have no clue when we are going to get the money from his 401K and kept snapping at me because i needed new clothes. I got my disability check today and was looking to spend a little bit of money on myself for some clothes that fit and it was so depressing and upsetting to see that the clothing industry does not think that fluffy women get pregnant and get big just like smaller women do. I finally went to Catherines where i was able to buy a dress in size 5X and a nightgown and robe set in 5X and ordered a bra that is one cup size smaller than what i need but should be better for me than the 46DDD bra i have been squeezing the twins into. Then i went to Lane Bryant and was able to find 3 more dresses there. It looks like i am gonna be stuck in dresses for the rest of my pregnancy, but at least i found something to wear. I broke down into tears three times today because of this why oh why cant someone in the clothing industry cater to the plus size pregnant woman and make life a bit easier on us all.

    Sorry for lurking I wanted to say hope your feeling better and also I found this website that is like a directory for finding the places that have plus size maternity clothes.


    hope it helps!

  • I am so sorry. I totally feel your pain with the plus size maternity clothes. I am in plus sizes and I wear a tall. Last pregnancy there was nothing I could wear accept for some tight cotton pants with no pockets from JCPenny in a size XXL. Lane Bryant has a great selection now, but they are expensive. I hate to pay $50.00 for a pair of pants I will only wear for 4 months, but that is what I have to do.
    I'm glad that you found something and I hope you feel better soon!

    I am so so sorry! With both DD and DS I was in plus sizes and it was very difficult to find maternity clothes that fit. I am glad you were able to find a few things for yourself.

  • Thanks I feel like I am more than plus size because I am wearing 5X and 6X now, and no one really carries those sizes.
