You are not a real Maternity Model by strapping on a FAKE BUMP! Who are you fooling? I know first hand that I’m not the only women irritated by Maternity false advertising and fake pregnant bellies! Do you really think women of today are that stupid? Trust me, women are beyond intelligent and wise! At a glance, we know #FAKENEWS and a #FAKEBUMP!
A letter from Babble:
Look at this chick. You are not fooling anyone, just ticking me off and making me feel even crappier about my girth. Fortunately, I have a hysterical and witty friend who just so happens to be due within days of me that sent me this little gem of a response. It was so satisfying, I couldn’t resist sharing her open letter to maternity models. Thank you Elizabeth Andia.
Dear Maternity Model,
If you’re not pregnant, please don’t model maternity wear. It just makes those of us who actually are knocked up feel like crap. And we already have enough to contend with, ie. hormones, nausea, itchy boobs, shying away from the camera not toward it, no stylist, no cocktails, etc. etc.
Your J brand ultra skinny jeans?? On what planet?
And those five-inch spike heels? Are you freaking kidding me? I will stab your eyes out with those heels. I won’t really. But I will think about it to make myself feel better about the fact that shortly my feet are going to be water balloons and my shoe selection will become ever more limited until I finally resort to thinking that beaded suede moccasins are actual outdoor shoes. Fortunately for me, they’ve been on trend in the last 12 months so I just might get away with it.
