After weeks of searching and with frustration that was growing almost as fast as my belly I finally stumbled on the Holy Grail of maternity clothing, pants perfect for an EMT carrying a growing babe in her belly. I didn't find them through any of the traditional EMS clothing, but rather a store I used to swear I'd never buy clothing from. Wal Mart.
I've had a disdain for Wal Mart for years; for its crowded aisles, cheap products, and overall shady business practices. Despite all of that the store has now become my professional savior when I discovered these maternity cargo pants.
Why these pants are so great:
The fit is amazing. They seriously are probably the most comfortable pants I have ever worn. The elastic band that is snug enough so I won't have to worry about my pants falling down, but never once irritated my ever expanding belly. Around the legs and butt aren't too tight so I can easily maneuver should I need to on an ambulance call. All the crouching, climbing, and unusual positions this jobs affords me means I need some seriously non-constricting pants. Oh, and the best part is they are only $18 and Wal Mart charges just 97 cents for shipping. Cheap? Comfortable? Professional? Absolutely!
Before I had these pants I was honestly feeling like I would have to either find a taylor or not be able to work as long as I wanted because of a lack of an appropriate uniform option. I mean, I couldn't just work all day with my pants unzipped! Now I feel like I could go right up to mid-September without skipping a beat. Hey, never say I'm not an optimist.
