Ok, so dd is only 3 months old but...OMG my belly is distressing!!!!! Before dd came along I was no twig but emjoyed the gym, had belly button piercing etc. My ENTIRE wardrobe appears to be full of shorter tops (I'm not talking cropped here though - as I said, never a twig!!) Now I have to rethink tops issue. Wher do I find longer tops? They all seem to end just above hipster level - another style product that may never be mine again after c section!!!!

My belly has resembled a beached jellyfish for years - 4 kids +no exercise = aarrrgh! I am large anyway and find Evans tops very forgiving but only 16+. I wear lots of tummy covering shirts and tunic type tops.

Boobie - I'm presuming bu your MN name that you have the same chest affliction as myself - think I've hit a 38GG now! 16+ is fine because of this reason, will head to Evans at weekend.
Compo - like your style, feel a credit card bashing coming on!! My dh will go mental!!

Hmm, hardly ever get to shops but have noticved there seem to be a lot of vaguely boho tops around which sort of gather under bosom and then go all flowy underneath past the hips (Gap? French Connection?)

I have same prob, wardrobe consists of short tops that i never considered short pre-pregnancy iykwim.

I'm struggling as i find when i wear longish, tunic style tops i look like i'm in maternity wear and afraid that somebody's gonna offer me their seat on the bus. what would i do? just look grateful i s'pose whilst praying the grounds opens up and swallows me.
