Maternity Rompers: Yes or No?Michelle Horton
Last year Rebecca touched on the maternity jumpsuit trend, which doesn’t seem to be dying down anytime soon. In fact, this summer I’ve seen more and more maternity rompers — similar to jumpsuits but with shorts instead of pants. I even saw a pregnant woman rocking a romper last week and she looked so cute.
I can see pros and cons for this look: First of all, the bathroom issue — let’s be honest. Unless it has onesie-like snaps, it could be a pain for the 10th, 11th, 12th bathroom trip. Also I can understand pregnant women feeling a little self-conscious in too-short shorts, so you’d have to find the right romper.
But like Rebecca said last year, this actually might be the perfect time in your life to try out the jumpsuit/romper trend. This look is typically targeted to itty-bitty women with perfectly flat tummies, considering it tends to accentuate the midsection. However when you’re pregnant, you’re expected to have a baby bump. For the first time in your life, accentuating your stomach is a good thing.
