Forever 21 shows mommies-to-be some love with Love 21 maternity line



forever_21_top.jpgWhen it comes to clothes, pregnant women can really get the short end of the stick.

I’ve heard my mother-to-be friends talk about how difficult it is to find maternity styles that are both cute and affordable. I mean, a girl needs her jeans, but who wants to spend gobs of money on a pair that you only get to wear for a few months?
So kudos to Forever 21 for its newly debuted Love 21 maternity line. The options don’t exactly abound yet, but there is a worthy selection of stylish jersey knit dresses, jeans, tanks and tunics. I love this flowing cardigan (though, I wonder, do you really need a maternity cardigan?) And, shoot, I’d wear this drapey silk-chiffon foliage top even though I’m not pregnant.



All the items are available online. Only lucky shoppers in Alaska, Arizona, California, Texas and Utah will see Love 21 in their Forever 21 stores right now. The chain took some heat this month after bloggers noted the high teen pregnancy rates in several of those states, but Forever 21 officials said going after pregnant young-ins wasn’t part of its marketing strategy.

I say people need to calm down, stop looking for conspiracy theories and rejoice that our friends with pregnant bellies can now buy decent jeans for under $30!
