I’ve always been a huge fan of sexy panties. My preference has involved lots of lace and thongs in the past. It’s always made me feel sexy and that’s a good feeling.
Well, my nice panty selection has come to a screeching halt since being pregnant and now I’m all about comfort… which, by the way, does not include lace or anything that resembles a thong.
Instead, I have traded Victoria’s Secret for Target and size small for a size large. It’s true and this is quite depressing.
I am completely in favor of getting a larger stomach to house my growing baby boy in. That’s fine. In fact, I’m really excited about my ever growing belly. But, where I draw the line is at the growing butt, arms, and thighs. And by thighs, I mean the ones that now touch. Never before in my life have my inner thighs touched, but pregnancy sure has changed that.
I realize that it might sound bad, but it’s a hard thing for me to swallow when I have to wear a size large in underwear and when my inner thighs rub against each other when I wear a dress. I love dresses and that’s what I usually wear all the time in summer. I’m not really a shorts kind of gal, so I’m sure completely sure what I will turn to this summer to stay cool.
I can only imagine how the combination of heat, humidity, touching inner thighs, and large underwear will feel… Talk about sexy. I’m not excited one bit.
Please tell me that I’m not the only one that has experienced these things…
It’s just like all of a sudden I had to go from a s/m to a large. I decided it was time to go on a hunt for new panties when I was constantly getting wedgies. No joke. Ah, the glamour of being 19 weeks pregnant. It’s SO awesome. (I’m totally being sarcastic here.)
I decided Target would be better than Victoria’s Secret mainly because we are on the spending less money kick. I got 5 pairs of “hipster” panties for $15. Not bad at all. But where it gets bad is the designs that were available for the kind of panties I was looking for. No longer was I searching for the cutest and sexiest thong. Oh no, that, my friends, is a thing of the past!
Now I was looking for normal panties that you used to wear when you were 10 years old… and honestly, I think that me and a 10-year old might be wearing the same ones. The designs were that awful. Needless to say, thank God that my husband isn’t in to lingerie and sexiness under the clothes. If so, I would be in tons of trouble.
As we were picking through the very limited selection, we were cracking up. One of the panties I got is yellow and has pink strawberries. Yes, I said strawberries. Lovely, right?
Frankly, it’s embarrassing.
What 28-year old wants to have strawberries on her panties? Well, I guess you’re looking at the kind of pregnant girl that will be wearing them. It’s a sad, sad day.
We were at Target, the price was good, and I was desperate. Yes, desperate enough to buy panties with strawberries on them. I must admit that I’m wearing some right now and they are most comfy. No longer do I get wedgies. These panties stay in place, nicely covering my whole butt (which is quite a change).
So I guess the moral of my story is that even though I might be wearing panties with strawberries and polka dots on them, I will be comfy… and really, I’d be kidding you if I said that wasn’t my #1 priority right now. It’s really not too fun to constantly be picking your underwear out of your butt because they don’t fit right. Just sayin’.
Oh and little Tarzan, please continue growing healthy in my belly, but no need to add anymore unnecessary fat on your mommy’s arms, butt, and thighs. I really can’t handle it and I don’t like it one bit. Thanks little man.
And yes, the pictures above are of my panties. The first two were my favorites back before I was pregnant and when I was still wearing a size small. The last two are after I got knocked up, grew a larger butt, and had to buy a size large. Nice.
