A while back, I got the coooooolest little maternity item.
Wanna know what it is?
It's a topless undershirt to cover my belly when I raise my arms or bend over. Crack kills, right? No one wants to see a pregnant mama bending over and her maternity jeans slipping off... nor do most people want to catch a revealing glimpse of half of her pregnant belly hanging over her pants (because even her maternity shirts are too tight towards the end).
Not only is my little topless undershirt saving me from unsightly wardrobe malfunctions, but it is also saving me MONEY. How many of your pregnant friends have complained that they had to buy a few things at the maternity shop to wear in the last few weeks of their pregnancy? I can think of a few off hand right now that have said this just recently to me. Now my maternity clothes will last all the way to the end - and I don't have to spend any more money buying clothes that I would hardly wear more than once!
I thought about taking a picture of me in my cool undershirt (and eventually I might), but I'm a little camera shy in my hippo state right now. Just trust me - the topless undershirt is a necessity for this queen bee! I'm thinking about buying another two or three in standard colors that match everything. The one I have is pink. I wear it with red and purple shirts. So cute for valentines under my soft red sweater!
The pregnant model below is wearing the black maternity cover (peeking out from under that neat little black and white print shirt). Believe me, if she raised her hands, someone would be able to pick lint out of her navel (me on the other hand... I have no navel any more).
Belly shirts aren't just for pregnant mamas. Nope. They are a one-hit wonder for the wardrobe - for any sized lady. Have some hipster jeans that slide down when you bend? Tiny tees that are so cute... but show too much of your tummy? What about all those high sweaters and shirts that seem to fly up when you raise your arms? They all have a REMEDY with these soft, comfy topless undershirts!
I love these little things so much that I'm doing a give away! Blush has offered to give one of any color away! You get to pick! You can even pick the retro circles below (one of my favorites).
Here's how you can get your groovy topless undershirt:
