Maybe you've seen a documentary on TV where a teen wears a fake baby bump to show and experience what it's like to be a pregnant teen, or even a movie where an actress simply needed to look like she's got one in the oven. Fake pregnancy belly suits are nothing new. But this is the first time we've heard of the items becoming noticeably popular.

According to The Washington Post, fake pregnant bellies, which are made out of skin-like silica gel and run for $80 to $250, are selling like hotcakes online. Well, we're actually not too sure how well hotcakes sell online, but you get the point. The product comes in a number of sizes and stages of pregnancy, and has been used in a number of ways, from fashion to fun. One seller told People's Daily, "Most of the costumers have bought the bellies for acting performances or as a joke, though others wanted to experience the life of a pregnant woman." What do you have to say about this kooky baby bump trend?

    Sad. To be honest. China denies people the right to reproduce, and they're physically dissatisfied with their appearance so they alter it to look like they are reproducing. Meanwhile they walk past a dying little girl hit by a truck, ignore the little babies dropped in the dump, and try to ignore impending disaster by too many girls 'disappearing' and boys surviving. China's messed up.

    I don't get it as a fashion trend, but for acting, and for people who want to see what it's like to be a pregnant woman, I think it's a great idea.

    It's pretty sad. If it helps them cope, sure, but really it shouldn't have to be that way.

    I'm thinking it has something to do with the way China limits the number of children you can legally have ... it's sad either way

    Yes, that picture pretty much explains my thinking. How in the heck are pregnant bellies a fashion trend? Makes zero sense to me...

    When you're denied something that your natural instinct crave, things get weird.
