Maybe I was a total frump when I was pregnant, but I darn sure didn't wear any shoes with a heel higher than 2 inches. My feet and ankles were swollen so badly during my last trimester, that I had to do the unthinkable--wear sneakers with my work dresses. I know, horrifying.
But check out these pics of "pregnant" models I snagged from a maternity clothes website. The clothes are fine, but what is going on with their shoes? I don't think I could walk in those shoes now, let alone when I was carrying 40 extra pounds of baby weight.
My question is, why do you think maternity stores are using these insanely impractical shoes to market maternity clothes? Because they make the models' legs look skinnier? Because the high heels make their clothes look better than ballet flats? Maybe it's just me, but I rarely see real pregnant women on the street walking around in shoes like this.
