I went to wal-mart today and spotted some regular shorts made by OP in the "younger" section" as I call it. They have a soft waistband all the way around and a draw string in the front. Cargo type shorts I suppose. Look just like what maternity shorts do I think they fit better b/c they aren't actual maternity shorts. Just thought I'd pass along the info. Only $12 for a pair of shorts, so I bought khaki and blue.
