“Was she pregnant?”

I heard one of the women behind me say to her friend this morning.

I knew exactly who they were talking about…the woman that had just walked past had a shirt on with a high waistband that fell right below her boobs and tied in the back. It was hard to tell if she was pregnant or just “round.”

During my two pregnancies I wore many of these shirts – back then they were called maternity shirts/tops and you only wore them when you were pregnant. Now fast forward 18 years and it is stylish to wear these shirts even when you aren’t pregnant....which, if you are a middle-aged woman whose “middle” has aged right along with the rest of you and needs a little camouflaging, is grand.
