Pants, pants, pants! Nobody likes trying on pants, and when you're pregnant and the shape of your body changes daily, pants become an everyday concern. And when you're dealing with a major life change, you'd rather be able to keep wearing your favorite jeans if you can. Every little bit of familiarity helps, right?
The BellaBand from Ingrid and Isabel is a brilliant solution to your pants problem: it extends the life of both regular and maternity clothing to keep you comfortable and looking good. When you first start showing, you can wear your regular pants unbuttoned, and the thick elastic at the bottom of the BellaBand holds your pants up and smoothes out the resulting lines; as your belly grows, the BellaBand holds up your too-loose maternity pants and hides the bunchiness; when your majestic third-trimester belly starts pushing your pants down, BellaBand helps them stay up.
And that's not all: because BellaBand is seamless, it just looks like another layer under your clothing, and you can fold or unfold it in dozens of different ways to cover the top of your pants and hug your pregnant belly. If your regular shirts are too short to cover that adorable bump, BellaBand can fill in the extra space. And after your baby is born, BellaBand helps you through the transition from maternity pants back to your old pants.
Ultimately, with BellaBand, you can cut down on the amount of maternity clothing you purchase – and some moms never wind up buying maternity clothes at all. Many reviewers describe the feeling of wearing BellaBand as "secure," which makes sense to us: it holds your clothing in place, and helps you feel confident about your appearance through all the rapid changes of pregnancy.
Made of ultra-soft knit nylon and spandex. Machine wash warm gentle cycle; tumble dry low, or line-dry to extend the life of the elastic.
Holds up unbuttoned pants
Allows you to continue wearing non-maternity pants for at least some part of your pregnancy, requiring you to buy less maternity clothing - and feel good in your everyday clothes!
I had bought a whole bunch of these and they definitely helped keep the pants from gaping open but didn't really extend the life of my non-pregnancy pants - I used them with my maternity clothes. But for keeping the muffin top under control and making sure that things stayed up, excellent.
