Remember how I said to borrow shirts to cover your belly?

By January 25, 2013

Follow me on:

One piece of advice that I've offered about what to do before you're ready for maternity clothes is to borrow button down shirts from dad. Many moms do this and love the flexibility is gives them as their clothing needs change during the day. (Read that as their belly seems to grow as the day wears on...)

So I went to a co-ed baby shower with a dear friend this weekend, she is also pregnant and was wearing her husband's button down shirt. The dad-to-be of this baby shower walked over and commented on the shirt saying that he knew that trick well. We started talking and he jokingly mentioned that sometimes, the shirt he wanted to wear that day was missing. He asked if I could tell all the pregnant women that I talked to, to please avoid taking the shirt that dad was planning to wear and particularly avoid his favorite shirt. This seemed like a reasonable request to me.

What about you? Are you a shirt stealer? Are you guilty of stealing the shirt of your man's back to cover your belly?

Oh, he is such a drama queen! I borrowed the favorite once. In general, I only used his shirts on casual friday. But to confess, I am totally a shirt stealer. Although, I think the real question is “Ladies, how many of your men are shirt hogs?” Just kidding!
