If anybody should be familiar with the challenge of trying to be stylish during pregnancy, it’s four-timer Heidi Klum — so it’s no surprise Ms. Heidi has launched two maternity collections: Lavish by Heidi Klum for A Pea in the Pod (a bit more expensive), and Loved by Heidi Klum for Motherhood Maternity (for the budget-conscious mamas-to-be).
The collection starts out innocuously enough, with perfectly lovely pieces such as a babydoll tunic that looks like, well, many other maternity babydoll tunics out there. (Note to more well-endowed ladies: Because of the empire waist, this style is NOT for you. I learned this the hard way when I saw a picture of myself in a similar maternity blouse last year and my girls looked like overstuffed sausages.)
Then things take a turn toward the “Oh no, she di-in’t”…
Yes! It’s a $95 maternity unitard! Given that I spent 99% of my pregnancy urinating, I would strongly recommend that Heidi add an “easy access” zipper compartment.
I appreciate that pregnant ladies need to feel sexy and badass, too, but $550 for leather leggings? (That they’ll wear one or two times?) C’mon, pregnant chicks don’t require THAT much more material! For that kind of money, the leggings had better come with Heidi Klum’s body, too.
