1: There is a big difference in a mumu and crop tops that barely cover the ribs.
These women aren't being graceful about beautiful pregnancy; they want attention and can't change their tacky outfits even when incubating life. There is definitely too much in the other direction of attire. No one has any couth.

3: Good idea.

LW1: Go back to the 18th century, lady. Oh, never mind, that won't work, cuz people 200+ years ago were far more enlightened about pregnancy than you are, you dumb tw*t.

LW2: Geez. Stop eating your boyfriend in front of your mother.

LW3: You "misplaced" your wallet. You're "unsure" what's in there.
Sounds like you need to see your doctor for an Alzheimer's check.

No school I ever attended offered a shop class. And never heard anyone refer to the butcher's garb as a smock. My first choice of terms would probably be 'apron'

Don't like LW1/Dorothy. Glance into the future:

When Dorothy criticized a pregnant woman, that woman replied:
(a) that Dorothy was just jealous because she probably wished she
was the pregnant one.
(b) that she didn't look so wonderful either.
(c) to stop staring at her and/or her husband and get someone single
to look at
or
(d) other.

Is there a difference? If it loops around your head, I would call smock, if it just goes around your waist like a tool belt, I would call apron.

<quoted text>
an apron loops over your head behind your neck and ties behind you at the waist covering the entire front of you body.

A smock? As i said, grade school art class is the only time i've heard that term. For us it meant bring in an old t-shirt from your dad. Something you can pull over the top if your clothes to completely cover you.

From a smock website.
When you think of a smock you probably think of the garment you wore in art class to protect your clothing. It pulls over your head, covers the front and back top half of your body, has pockets and ties at the side. This design is actually a “cobbler apron”.

Tomato/ tomatoe? You've just dropped a quote that confirms what I originally said.**I'VE** NEVER HEARD THE TERM SMOCK USED OUTSIDE OF GRADE SCHOOL ART CLASS.

Whether or not that is the technical definition of a smock is irrelevant. If butchers and those in shop class use the term for what they wear, fantastic.**I've** never had shop class nor asked a butcher to describe the garment he wears, so art class remains my only exposure to that word.

Just because *You* never heard of something does not mean that it does not exist. Since your exposure to the word and its uses is so very limited, does not mean my use of the word was incorrect, which was your original intent.

I never said it does not exist. I never questiond lw's use of the term smock to describe some maternity garb. I never questioned your use of the term for shop class or butchers. Where do you get that my intent was to discredit any other uses of the word. I simply pointed out what that word makes ***ME*** think of.

Sorry that its so baffling to you that I never had shop class where i would be exposed to another use of that word, but you are adding your own spin to my statement. That's on you.

No, it's not about me.
You said my use of the word was wrong and stated (incorrectly) that apron was a better term.

Apparently this is because you did not have shop classes where you wore a smock when pouring molten metal to make a cast, but rather you wore an apron when baking cookies in your E-Z bake oven in home-ec class!

i never said your use was wrong. You described a smock as going over your head and an apron being around your waist like a tool belt. I showed you what I call an apron(as well as the people selling that apron).

But does a programmer wear a smock or an apron? What about an IT professional?

And my school had no home-ec class either. No drivers ed. No mechanics class. No book keeping. Nothing in the way of non-academic electives.
