Babydolls and the "pregnancy effect"

Do emu Do emu
My partner swears that babydolls are unflattering because it makes the tummy area look bigger than it actually is, thus giving off the "pregnancy effect." do you think this is true?

YEP. This is one big reason that I never get babydolls. They pretty much always look unflattering on me.

Experiment Experiment
I think different bodies look better in different things. If you're a little bit larger with a bit of a tummy and large breasts, I think it looks fine.

If you're like me and you don't have a tummy but you also don't have much in the breast area, it's incredibly unflattering.

I think they are beautiful on bigger women (like myself). But I agree with Experiment, they may be less flattering on smaller women, but I also believe its about confidence and how you carry yourself.

Empire waists and tummies do not work together, period. I mean, what's worse when wearing an empire-style wedding gown and being asked "Is that why you're getting married?" I didn't get it until I saw a photo of me in profile ...

There's a reason maternity-wear is empire waisted.

Actually while I am working to get rid of my baby belly it is very flattering...it doesn't hide the fact that I have extra around my belly but it does show it in a more flattering light.

yes and no, more often than not I'd have to say they do make you look pregnant

Yes, if you have any tummy at all they tend to be unattractive.

It depends on the baby doll

It depends on the person. I'd never be able to wear one though. Empire waist doesn't work with my boobs. The part that is meant to sit at your waist sits halfway down my boobs -_-

It depends on the body type. There are definitely a lot of people who look great in babydolls. I have wide shoulders and sizable boobs, so I feel like babydolls make me look boxy because they hide my relatively small waist. Empire waists are not my friend.

I think it depends on the babydoll and the build of the person wearing it, but I've definitely seen this happen.

Sometimes yes, if the babydoll has a lot of extra fabric. The look can be flattering if the item doesn't have tons of material in the tummy area.

I love babydolls, and trapeeze dresses from back in the day, but no matter how thin I am, I look wide on all sides. I was 118 in junior high and wore a trapeeze dress to school with leggins. I thought I looked really cute and all, but no...got asked if I was preggers several times.

It ally depends on the specific cut of the baby doll and your chest. I find sheer ones pull it off, being a little larger in the chest, but otherwise it can look weird.

Yes some do but others don't. I find that most of them actually hide my chubby belly.

They hide the bigger stomachs and make them look great.

On my frame I have not found a babydoll top that does not make me look prego.

Not at all. Babydolls actually hide big bellies and make them flattering.

I don't think so... I like my girlfriend in babydolls (or any lingerie).

Babydolls are a hit and miss for me as a smaller person. I think getting one with sheer fabric negates the "pregnant" effect because everything is basically visible.

out of all the lingerie my wife has, only one piece makes her look fat. so far we have been lucky.

Instead of pregnant, it's more like a little foofy dress. It's fine to not show all of your curves every time.
