    As I’m sure you know, many a yogi (I’ve seen it!) does not look like a rail or a think beauty, even after practicing 10 years and teaching. I’ve seen some beautiful, curvy women who have mastered their practice. My comment from the Twitter yesterday still stands: I thought you looked great in your yoga pictures, and when I saw you in-person. And I’m not being flattering; I’m being honest.

    That doesn’t solve your question, though. So, my answer is: If you’re unhappy with it, kick your gut’s ass—evict it! xo

    smile Thanks, Sarah! I think yoga, for me, IS more about mind/body healing and I’m trying to focus on that. But I do want to do something to help me feel good about the state of my mid-section at the same time.

    I appreciate the Yoga feedback from you! For sure.

    I have to say, I’m always blown away when I see you—I can say with perfect honesty that I never, ever once noticed your tummy when you came up to visit! You’re gorgeous (and I am totally jealous of your Yoga abilities!)

    That said, for practical tips? You nailed it on the “don’t wear pregnant shirts” bit. And then have you tried just adding a set of ab-work reps to your day? I do three times a week, it takes 4 minutes—10 reps of 10 different styles. You could probably find a good ab video on Youtube, even.

    See, you don’t look pregnant to me in these photos.  You certainly don’t look like you’re wearing a shirt that says, “I’m Growing a Baby, Ask Me How,” which seems like the appropriate time to ask someone about the contents of their uterus.

    ME, TOO. I am, admittedly, a skinny chick, but HOOBOY do I have Dunlop’s Disease (my spare tire done lopped over and is trying to eat my knees). The only reason nobody has never wondered if I was pregnant is because I’m super self-conscious about buying the right clothes. Anything that can be construed as maternity-ish is OUT. No empire waists, no shirts shaped like a bell, nada. Fitted is good, long and straight is good, button-up is good. Maybe try taking somebody who will be totally honest shopping with you?

    Honestly? I think it’s just the shirt. Really, truly, honestly.

    You don’t look pregnant to me.  Also, MAN I wouldn’t say that to someone unless I literally saw like a heel or a hand VISIBLY TRYING TO ESCAPE her body.

    Lord help me.

    I’m with Maria on this one.  You don’t look pregnant AT ALL.  And I never, ever, ever mention someone even *maybe* being pregnant until they make some reference to it.  I’ve seen people who are OBVIOUSLY pregnant(who actually weren’t pregnant at all), so I just say nothing. 
    (p.s. you’re NOT one of those people!)

    Oh sweetie. I have that bulge too and I am like 100 pounds heavier than you. But here’s the thing. You are gorgeous inside and out.

    You don’t want to see me in that shirt. That’s pregnant! wink

  • March 3, 2010

    Dude. It’s the SHIRT. FOR REALS.

    Toss that thing.

    The wrap and the slight trapeze. NOT GOOD.

    You look awesome.

    Well if that’s what pregnant looks like, then I’m carrying twins, cause this momma’s (NOT PREGNANT) gut sticks out a lot further than that. When I’m sucking it in. Sigh.

    I would happily look like this when not pregnant.

    I am lost for advice because maybe just the pic but you don’t look remotely pregnant to me… I need another view!

    I agree with Kristin, burn that shirt!

  • March 3, 2010

    I am just totally stunned by your breasts that I don’t notice anything else.

    (I know. I am useless in this discussion. I have no advice.)

    Definitely the shirt… dump it.

    I’ve been out of bloggy/twitter land for a while but saw this via PW and you in my feed and HAD to see what was up.  I remember the PW exchange.  And I HAVE to comment.  The shirt blows.  We all, well most of us anyway, have the post-kiddo pooch.  I hate it. But you DO NOT look preggo.  The clothes.  I can’t wear anything that slightly resembles maternity clothes cuz well, it makes me look preggo.  Go shopping. and btw, you do have a nice rack woman, show the twins off and no one will glace at the pooch. wink

    It’s the shirt. (And I actually mistyped first “It’s the shit” - so there you go.)

    People look at anything empire/trapeze on women of childbearing age and assume they’re pregnant, even if they’re skinny as a rail.

    You know what is funny? I have no bra on. I was at home cleaning when I took the pic and realized, “Oh, I haz no bra.”

    You people, I love you and your appreciation for the bewbs.
