Motherhood is tantamount to being launched into a Disney world, so why doesn't the Mouse have a maternity line?
They do now.
The Stir got a look-see at the first maternity clothes from Disney on Tuesday at a private press event in Manhattan.
According to folks with Disney Consumer Products, the demand has been high to expand the Disney clothing line from mommy and me to just for mom, and the result will soon be in Motherhood Maternity stores (and online) across the U.S.
I tried to shy away from maternity clothes in general when I was pregnant, so I can't say I noticed the lack of these, but there seems to be a demand if posts on the myriad Disney Message Boards out there are any indication.
Some moms have been able to rustle stuff up on eBay from a long discontinued line, but there's been no major marketer -- and apparently quite a demand.
And what can I say, they were absolutely adorable -- loose in the arms for swelling appendages but tummy hugging to show off that cute curve.
Not enough to make me become pregnant again, but I'd buy it for a die-hard character fan friend.
Will you be sporting a Mickey bump?
