    I get those too! I'm not big so I'd look for something else to blame other than your tummy.

    My guess at the culprit is the seatbelt...

    Haha me too! At first I thought moths also. Was wondering why they only ate the front on my shirts at the bottom. Then the light bulb went off and yes, it's the buttons on my jeans. DURR!!!

    Thank GOD it's not just me!!! It doesn't matter if it's a cheap singer or shirt or a more expensive one - my mum insists it's moths.

    They are a pain in the butt.

    I agree with others, insects don't generally eat holes in one particular area of the majority of tops.
    I get this too, I put it down to catching it in the zipper of my pants.

    I get this too. For ages I thought it was moths (my mum also insisted this was the case) - we even got the house sprayed by pest control professionals. But the holes kept appearing. Then I realised it only happened when I was wearing jeans. When I was pregnant and didn't wear jeans, I didn't get any holes in the front of my clothes.

    I have since caught myself putting holes in a couple of shirts by accidentally rubbing against the kitchen bench while wearing jeans. So annoying and such a waste of clothes. Especially all the ones I threw out because I thought they might be infested with bugs!

    I have quite a few tops with holes, but mine are from the birds landing on them while on the washing line.

    its definitely my kitchen bench as it didn't start happening until we moved into a new house. It only happens with t-shirts/tops that are a soft cotton. My hubby does loads of cooking but it doesn't happen to him because he is really tall so his top don't brush against the bench top.

    OMG!!! This happens to mine too!!

    I previously thought it was from my belly ring but I took that out when I was pregnant with DS (22 months) and it's still happening!!

    It must be buttons or benches!

    I seriously thought it was only me!

    Me too. I get 2 or 3 at the front. I worked out it was when I wore a belt and how I held my youngest child and hoiked him in and out of the car.
    Absolutely drives me nuts. I can wear a shirt once and then notice it.
    I have stopped routinely wearing belts now.
