Maternity shopping, 1983

I continue to find endless entertainment in my beat up copy of the 1983 JC Penney winter catalog. This time, since I've got a little lad coming in December, I flipped right to the maternity section to check out my options. Wow - they loved their jumpers and tunics back then! Because everything for sale here is basically a glorified muumuu, you can't even really tell these ladies are pregnant. Quite the opposite of today's maternity fashion, which is all about flaunting your bump!

PS- December babies are the best!

I think you would look ravishing in the striped number Duff. :P

So glad fashion has moved on in that respect.

Haha! Oh dear... the 80s really does try... I'm just not quite sure how! ;)

Still... if anyone can make a muumuu look good. I'm sure it's you, Duff.
