A mother with an apron belly has challenged other women with similar shapes to wear her belly with pride.
There’s nothing to be ashamed of, she said, because it’s perfectly normal.
Shelly (@styleright) admitted to hiding hers behind high-waisted underwear, but was happy to show it off to reassure others.
This brave lady responded to a comment on her TikTok saying, “I have an apron belly and I love your page for inspiration.”
In her postShe revealed what her high-waisted panties contained under her shorts.
Without much fuss, she pulled her shorts and pants down below her neck, exposing her apron midriff — and there was no shame here.
“A lot of us have apron bellies,” she said, “under our high-waisted underwear.”
She reminded the women that it was “completely normal.”
For her, having one was like being in the “cool kids’ club.”
“No matter how we made it,” she wrote, “we stick together.”
It wasn’t always perfect, she admitted, but she found peace with it.
“I don’t always love it, but I’ve learned to live with it. Wear it with pride,” she urged her apron-bellied sisters.
Commenters on her post were blown away by her openness about her belly rolls.
“Belly Apron Club unite,” said one.
“The cesarean gave me mine,” this lady wrote. “Thanks for making me feel normal.”
This viewer had a different name for her: “I call it my kangaroo pouch.” It held my 11 lb baby.
The last commenter wanted to know where to subscribe.
“I didn’t know it had a name. Can I join the club?” she asked.
