seriously, where have these been all my life and why doesn’t the whole world wear them?
okay, yeah, i understand that the US, specifically, is going through an obesity pandemic, and wearing stretchy pants has usually a big no-no in my book because they deceive you into believing that your waistline is not, in fact, expanding, when, in fact, it probably is…. it’s all in the delusional nature of that stretchy stuff.
1) for years i have had the underlying fear that i would walk around with my fly open. i have created a not-so-scientific habit of discretely checking said fly every time i walk out of a water closet facility. Maternity Pants don’t have flies – SCORE!
2) i was trying to stay in my “regular” jeans for so long that i was finally to the point of unbuttoning the top button and attempting to go along with my daily routine. Maternity Pants don’t have buttons – SCORE!
3) wearing said jeans were leaning on the not-so-comfort scale. Maternity Pants are, if anything, comfortable (stylish? well, that’s a discussion for a future post) – SCORE.
4) The Bean seems a little more at ease and not so squished in denim, zips, snaps, buttons and straps. SCORE!
for further amusement – here’s one of my favorite :20 clips from my fave show (and for this purpose, Brad Pitt is just an added bonus):
