The 40 year old actress who had her baby 14 months ago says that she is still wearing her maternity jeans. Now, many may think that this is the ultimate faux paus and that women should switch back over to their pre-pregnancy clothes as soon as possible. However, TummyStyle.com knows that this is a silly idea and not realistic.
For one, it takes a while to get back to your pre-pregnancy size if ever. There is no way that your pre-pregnancy clothes, and especially your jeans, will fit within a reasonable amount of time. And, as many of our customers have found, the more children you have, as well as the older you are when you give birth, the more difficult it is to get your waistline back down to size.
Another reason our customer continue to wear their maternity jeans long after having their babies is that the jeans are comfortable! We have recently extolled the benefits of maternity jeans and as Cristina Applegate has shown, just keep wearing them as long as you want! The Maternal America Megan Jeans , for instance, makes your legs look thin and sexy. The elastic band goes up high enough to provide more support and can easily be hidden with a button down shirt or tunic.
So, if you are thinking of donating those maternity jeans after having the baby, hang on and just give them a try. You may find that Cristina Applegate knows what she’s doing!
Reese Witherspoon was caught the other day buying $600 worth of maternity jeans at her Brentwood neighborhood in Los Angeles. Reese is married to her second husband Jim Toth and were wed last March. Ms Witherspoon is 36 while her hubby is 41. This is their first child together.
