There is nothing more annoying than hearing, 'You're pregnant! How wonderful! When are you due?' when you're not expecting. It's the horror story you hope never happens to you -- it's humilating, not to mention a huge hit to your self-esteem. The problem isn't just pudge. It more likely stems from some of our not-so-smart wardobe choices. Empire waists, babydoll tops, shapeless frocks, and other unflattering styles -- they're not cuts for a beautiful, baby-free body.
There is a way to save yourself the trauma: Stock your closet full of styles that sceam, 'No way a pregnant woman could wear that!' If thin, trim, and hell no, I'm not pregnant is the look you're going for, you've come to the right place.
Take a look at these six styles that are so far from materinty wear, they're in a whole 'nother area code.
Have you ever been asked if you were pregnant when you weren't? How'd you handle it?
