Funny thing happened on the subway the other day. As le bf and I were rocking and swaying, trying to keep our balance, an older woman looked up from her seat and asked me if I would like to sit down. Not understanding what her offer suggested, I looked at my husband, as he looked back at me in dismay…and then we both looked down at my belly. The dress…this dress…was billowy, sure, but did I actually looked pregnant enough to warrant a seat on a crowded subway car? Really?!?!? After the initial shock, I said “no, thank you” as graciously as possible, and proceeded to suck in my stomach for the rest of the ride.
So now the question is…do I stop wearing this dress? One friend suggested I burn it, but the truth is…I actually love it. Of course, I could belt it and solve my dilemma, but I actually prefer it loose and comfy. So I guess my options are now: a) wear it and suck in my stomach as much as I possibly can, or b) wear it and stick my stomach out to get a seat on the subway during rush hour. I haven’t decided which option I’m going to go with, but either way, this dress is just too perfect for hot sticky summer days for me to give it up. What do you think?
