Arrow It's a total bummer that....

The largest cami shaper (3x) doesn't fit me, seriously when I got it in the mail I laughed. It looked like it could be a snug on a six year old, and I realize it's shape wear, but c'mon this thing would probably suffocate me. How do I get this baby on?

My favorite top is a maternity shirt, and not just a stretchin' over the big belly shirt, it's like made specialy for making breast feeding easier in ways I won't get into, but anyhow it's a secret I can take to my grave and it looks fab on me :

And now your turn..... what's a total bummer?

38" waist pants are too loose on me but 36" waist pants are too tight. And I mean way too tight!

Oh, and I keep buying belts that are too large when I get them home but seem to fit OK in the shop.

And don't get me started on nice looking shirts that are only available in tailored fit.

The awesome 2X skull shirt I bought online two years ago is still way too tight on me.

All of my favorite shoes are getting to be too big for me now. I know it's a good problem to have but I don't want new ones, I want these broken in and perfect for me shoes to wear.

I have so much loose skin around my tummy that if it were all gone I'm sure I'd be down at least one pant size. If I put on one size smaller it fits my butt/legs well, but my skin comes bubbling out of the top! LOL

I'm wearing a smaller dress size, UNLESS the dress has sleeves. My flipping arms seem huge compared to the rest of me!

God I hate fat arm syndrome. I have the exact same problem. Things zip, fit fine in the bust and waist, but in the arms... it's like packing sausages. I have a great scrub top that fits me now, but I have to pull it down over my arm fat several times a day HAHA. It sucks.

elvislover I totally get you on the shoes. I would rather wear my beat up raggy old pair of sneakers than one of the 3 new pairs I have waiting for me to break in.

I'm currently 22 weeks pregnant and pulling out the maternity pants reminded me just how much I HATE regular jeans. They are never comfortable for me. My waist expands if I so much as look at anything with salt in it.

I love maternity jeans with their elastic, ever expanding waists. Sometimes I am sooo tempted to just wear maternity jeans after I have my baby, really how would anyone know, they look just like regular jeans from the waist down lol.

I'd trade any day to shift some of the fat from my belly to my arms!

It's tough being a guy.

I've always thought that the world would be a much happier place if everyone wore maternity pants. Really, it should be a new international law that zipper/button pants be banned, and only elastic/stretch wristbands be made from now on!
