Hi ladies, fashion advice please... One very depressing thing for me these past months is that I've gone up a clothes size and my belly looks like I'm pregnant. Absolutely none of my work trousers fit me now, I can't do the zip, and as I am small framed and not tall (I usually buy petite for leg length) it shows really badly. A work colleague accidentally asked me when I was due which was mortifying. Can anyone suggest some good clothes brands to try to replace them. Maybe I need to buy maternity wear or something... Turning 40 hasn't exactly helped my style confidence either and I feel dowdy and self conscious about my horrible new shape.. Can anyone help with my mid life clothes crisis?
