When you become pregnant, things seem less and less under your control. There is also, understandably, a huge shift from you — the person, to you — the vessel for growing human life. One of the few things that you can feel in charge of that still focuses on maintaining your own identity is how you choose to dress. Pregnancy clothing has come a long way since your grandma's time, but it can still be a daunting task. What makes matters worse is when you get compliments about your maternity wardrobe that are actually insults.
As if your raging and ever-changing hormones don't already have you questioning every single decision you make throughout your pregnancy, it certainly doesn't help when you're left trying to decipher the intention behind the conversation you just had with your frenemy. But let's be honest. Even the most well-meaning individuals, like your great aunt or your mom's friend from work, can put their collective feet in their mouths in a major way when it comes to "complimenting" your wardrobe.
Of course you're aware that the size and shape of your body is changing as your baby continues to grow inside you, but you don't necessarily always want to be reminded how large your belly has gotten. So check out these compliments about your maternity wardrobe that are actually insults and see if any ring a bell.
