Maternity Style


Maternity Style | really risaWhy is every maternity dress designed for tall women? On the models and even on average women I see, these dresses fall just above the knee, covering just enough leg. On me, these same dresses are calf-length, which shortens my legs and makes me feel like a sausage. This non-maternity dress from American Apparel looks on me exactly how the same style of maternity dress looks on taller ladies, which means I’m in love. It’s ribbed so it hides bumps and imperfections well (and also the lines from my underthings), it’s soft and stretchy so I don’t feel trapped and unable to bend any which way and it’s short-sleeved, which I love since my arms (and cheeks) carry most of my baby weight. I wear this dress pretty much every other day (with the kimono, a military vest or on its own) and I’m two seconds from begging American Apparel to make it in 20 colors so I can buy them all.
