I just remember being pretty upset when I couldn't fit into anything in the store. I was even too big for the largest size tunic or sweatshirt. SIGH. I remember wishing (out loud, to Steve) that Forever 21 would get a maternity section. At that, we both laughed hysterically at the thought, then made our way to Destination Maternity where they charge $89 for a big, tent shaped t-shirt.
Fast forward to June. I was due to have Konnor in a couple of weeks. I don't remember what website I was browsing, maybe Perez Hilton, when I read that Forever 21 was coming out with a maternity line. "You have GOT to be kidding me."
I only had two weeks left of being pregnant and THAT'S when Forever 21 granted my wish. Buying maternity clothes with two weeks left was pointless.
I was reminded of all this just moments ago while I was browsing forever21.com and stumbled across the maternity section. The clothes are #1, cute and #2, very cheap. The exact opposite of maternity clothes found elsewhere. Trust me, I searched. WalMart doesn't even carry maternity clothes anymore and if they did, I'm sure they would be ugly. I searched every second hand store I could find and if they had any maternity clothes they were usually...you guessed it, UGLY. Any clothes that were remotely cute were also never priced less than $40.
I guess the upside to this is that Forever21 will have maternity clothes the next time I get pregnant, but I'm sure that a couple weeks after I find out I'm pregnant, they will discontinue the line because there has got to be some parenting group out there as I type, painting their signs and organizing their protest. They probably say something like, "Don't encourage the teenage harlots by selling cute, affordably maternity clothes!" and they will have evil, glaring eyes painted on them too.
