Maternity models: Real or fake bumps?

Gap has its Columbus Day sale going on right now (yeah, apparently it’s Columbus Day today), which of course encouraged me to jump at some deals on a few more basic maternity clothes (these camis, a pair of black pants and a pair of jeans).

I browsed a bit at Gap Maternity (smartly housed inside Baby Gap) yesterday and tried on some pants, but the selection in-store is sorely lacking. It at least gave me a bit of an idea on sizes, but they didn’t have my size in any of the pants I liked. So if you know your size in regular Gap clothes, skip the store and head straight to

Anyway, while browsing the site, I started wondering if maternity models are actually pregnant.

Some of those bumps look pretty convincing, but others… not so much (the girl on the right doesn’t even look like she needs maternity clothes). Wouldn’t it be tough to find real pregnant models, at the ideal stage of pregnancy to boot? Furthermore, pregnancy isn’t exactly kind to one’s complexion (well, at least not mine). My money’s on fake bumps on these gals.

What do you think?
