Maternity tee shirtby Carder

On the one hand (aside from being horribly overpriced), the shirt’s message carries a two-pronged offense: It suggests that pregnancy weight is the result of being fat — not pregnant — and that pregnancy is a shameful condition after which women must erase every trace of evidence that their bodies gave birth.

On the flip side, for the expectant moms enjoying their pregnancies and the changes it brings forth, the shirt could be a lighthearted way to celebrate their evolving bodies.
