Last week we learned that former Playboy bunny and Girls Next Door star Holly Madison is pregnant. That was a pretty big shock considering she's only been dating her baby daddy, Pasquale Rotella, for nine months, but we're generally happy for her. What no one should be happy about, however, is how this pregnancy is transforming her wardrobe.
She was recently spotted out and about in the getup you see here. There are so many things wrong with this picture, it's hard to know where to start, but let's go with those PAJAMA PANTS she's sporting. Right there in public, in broad daylight.
She's clearly jumped aboard the frump train early, and someone needs to get her off it now. It's all too easy to ride that thing far too long and find yourself a permanent member of the not-so-exclusive pajama mama club that already has far too many disheveled members.
Look, I'm all for pregnant women being comfortable. Those who strut around in sky-high heels (yes, Snooki I'm looking at you) are just gluttons for pain, but there is no excuse for pajama pants to be worn in public. Ever. Okay unless you're 2, and your mom doesn't have time to get you dressed before she has to get to your big brother's school, but for grown women -- pregnant or not -- it's just a big fat no.
I get that you may not feel well and are tired, but pregnancy isn't the time to stop caring about what you look like. While your partner hopefully loves you no matter what, all of the changes at hand can be overwhelming for him. If he starts thinking this is the end of you ever caring about how you look again, he may be a little concerned. And this is a HUGE change for the former glamour puss.
More importantly, it's just good for your own self esteem to keep up your appearance while you're pregnant -- and trust me, NO pair of pajama pants is ever going to enhance your appearance. Your body goes through so many uncontrollable changes that whatever you can control -- like the clothes you put on your body -- should be made with care. I think I put more effort into what I looked like while I was pregnant than ever before in my life because I was so scared of becoming that frumpy, disheveled mom. And if you start that look during pregnancy with the ultimate I've-given-up look that are pajama pants, the road ahead looks bleak my friend.
Hopefully this was just a one-time offense for Holly. While we don't need to see her strutting around in cocktail dresses, there are plenty of cute, comfy maternity looks out there. Hopefully she can at least step things up and get a nice pair of maternity yoga pants or, if all else fails, some pajama jeans.
Did you become more or less frumpy when you became pregnant?
