YES! I always have these moments! I get dressed for work thinking I’m doing a good job then catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror at work and wonder what on earth I was thinking. I think I just have trouble co-ordinating that early in the morning ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh god, the dress I wore to my bridal shower was similar. I tried it on and in the mirror I kept checking out my profile and I looked great, I thought… but I just saw a picture my mom took at the shower and, from the front, I look about three feet wide!

Totally embarrassing. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hopefully no one else looked at me dead-on. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Unfortunately, I know what you mean. Although babydoll dress, clothes, etc work in THEORY, they tend to be very unflattering on people unless that person is say, oh, 5’10” and 100 lbs.

I too avoid the babydoll clothes at all costs.

Oh yes, been there done that. A belt usually fixes the “look pregnant but not pregnant” style of clothing that is in right now. It just looks hideous on me! Big boobs+ flounsy dress just screams “knocked up” to most people. Looks cute on petite women, but definitely that is not me.

I often feel the same way….something I put on at 6:30am and think looks great on me, seems to look frumpy by lunch time. Ahhh, the joys of early workday mornings. =)
