Pregnancy is a beautiful thing: our bodies change to fit a new human, your family is growing to add another little life into this world, and honestly, there are just so many cute baby clothes to dress your newborn. Shopping for you, a petite lady, on the other hand, can be a bit tricky. It’s already difficult to find maternity clothing that fits your style - but it can be even harder to find maternity clothing that fits our petite frames without looking like a circus balloon.

The shirt goes all the way down to your mid-thigh and the sleeves swallow your arms (kind of like the wacky inflatable tube man with disproportionately long sleeves, *ahem). You try to tuck it in and roll up the sleeves, but it ends up being too annoying to wear more than once and you give it away to a friend.
