So this is a rant...just warning.
I am getting so frustrated with clothes.
First off, it was when I was maternity shopping; it seemed like all the skirts I could find were minis and many tops were either really loud patterned and blousy or teeny-bopperesque. It really irritated me, but I plugged along.
Then came the post-partum figure where my maternity clothes were too big and my pre-baby clothes were too small. I had such a small selection I was doing laundry every third day just for me.
Now I am looking for nursing tops and dresses that accommodate for discreet and modest nursing.
Why is everything?
1) Ridiculously expensive
2) Too low cut (I don't want that kind of attn.)
3) In awful colors and patterns
Is it wrong to want to pay a fair price (not obscene) for a top that is modern, classy, and nursing accessible?!
I don't want to wear layers of clothes in order to lift the top one to access a nursing tank. I live in Florida. It is wicked hot; layers are not good. I can tell you this even in the winter! I don't want to even imagine July.
Yeah, so this is frustrating to me. Nursing is the most important thing I can do for our baby. Why don't people get it!!
There is such a disparity (warning: stereotype ahead) between the uber-rich crunchy folks who nurse because it's "green" and the families that realize the expense of formula and nurse out of financial necessity. Granted that's not all the folks out there, but I wanted to make a point.
Most people cannot afford to pay $70 just for a shirt!!
And the others don't want to pay a reasonable price for some hideous mumu!!
Meet us in the middle, designers. You'll have a larger and happier clientele.
