A year or so ago, I did a post saying how goofy I thought those plaster casts of pregnant bellies were. Of course, that was before my daughter-in-law got pregnant. Now, we must have one. She promises me it won't be painted with NASCAR or anything equally...how shall I put this...stupid. (That isn't her plaster belly up there.)
Jamie ordered a kit online from Glamourbelly. She never received the kit and she isn't alone. Do a Google for Glamourbelly and you will find lots of other people who have also been ripped off by this woman.
As if ripping off people, especially pregnant people, isn't despicable enough, the Glamourbelly woman also has logos at the bottom of her web page inferring that she is recommended by The Learning Channel, Baby Story and the March of Dimes. Jamie is contacting those companies as well as her local television stations to alert them to this scam.
Cory and Jamie decided to buy a kit from a local store and did the belly cast at her mom's house after Jamie's baby shower. In case you were wondering how to get the plaster off after you're done, I was wondering the same thing.
"How did you get the plaster off when you were done?" I asked Cory.
"I took her in the backyard and hosed her down," he said.
Of course. How silly of me.
