A belly band! Naturally, numerous companies make these stretchy, sleeve-like items, but they all have the same function. They are useful in prolonging the life of your pre-pregnancy clothes and help fine tune the fit of your maternity clothes. In the first stages of your pregnancy maternity pants might be just a bit too big but your normal, pre-pregnancy pants are a bit too small. Rather than buying a pair of pants that will only have a short life, use a belly band. Using your pre-pregnancy pants, keep the button undone and use the belly band to lie over the waist of your pants and underneath your shirt to achieve that adorable layered look. If you are wearing maternity pants that are too big you can fashion the belly band in the same way and it will keep any slack from pants that are too big up on your waist. Use them with pants, shorts and skirts to maximize your wardrobe during every stage of pregnancy.
Below are a few pictures of “regular” jeans that aren’t quite wearable on their own but get a new life with a belly band!
Our supply of belly bands are priced approximately 50% of the new price and typically fall within the range of $10-$20.
