So this may only apply to a few of you right now but I thought I’d share two of my favorites during this pregnancy. Would you like to know what has helped me feel more comfortable and happy this time?
I can’t believe I spent the span of two full pregnancies (one of them with twins) without ever owning one! I had heard of the concept before and even made a few using old undershirts but they never compared to the quality and support of the real deal. I know there are cheaper versions out there, but nothing has compared to these. I’m now hooked.
The concept is simple. It’s an elastic band that fits over the top of your jeans/pants/skirts and up onto your belly. You can use it to cover the fact that your jeans are unbuttoned, to hold up maternity pants/skirts that are a bit too loose, or simply to wear under shirts that are too short. I bought three (two white one black) and I have seriously used them every single day of my pregnancy and plan to use them postpartum as well. Right now, I am really appreciating the support it gives my belly and even back. So I would definitely say the Bella Band is a favorite!
