What Are Belly Bands?

Belly Bands are an essential wardrobe stable for any expecting mum. They are made from super soft and stretchy fabric, designed to be worn over the top of pants/skirt/jeans, you can’t do up anymore.

They look like a wide tube top or boob tube, specially designed to fit around a pregnant mother’s mid section. Belly bands are usually made from a combination of fibres such as cotton + elastane/spandex or lycra. They have to be stretchy in order to stay up and on and also to “grow” with a mother’s abdomen as her pregnant belly expands.

Although some women can quite proudly claim they are able to wear their “normal” clothes when pregnant, for the majority this is just not the case. Most find that by around the second trimester, their clothes are getting too tight for comfort – especially in the tummy region.

In the first and second trimester of pregnancy, some women choose to fold their belly band in half because it doesn’t need to cover as much tummy area. But as their pregnancy advances, the band can be worn fully expanded. . As their tummy enlarges and it becomes difficult to do up the zip, clips or buttons, these can be left open and the belly band is worn over the top, covering the expanse of skin. They work like a “bridge” between where the top ends and where the pants or skirt start.

Some mothers find they are just a good fashion accessory and provide a different layering look. They can smooth the mid section and provide an alternative to monochromatic colour when dressing.

Belly bands are a great intermediate wardrobe item between not fitting into pre-pregnancy clothes and maternity clothing being too big. When maternity pants would otherwise be swimming on you, a belly band will help to hold them up. Likewise, in the first couple of months after your baby is born, you’re unlikely to fit back into your pre-pregnancy clothes. Belly bands can still be worn after birth.

Check out MotherLand’s range of belly bands, from a very affordable price of $14.95.

Save Money Buying Maternity Clothes

You don't need to spend a fortune on maternity clothing to look and feel fantastic whilst you are pregnant. Stretch your maternity clothing budget further by purchasing maternity pieces that you can mix and match. This will add versatility and style to your maternity wardrobe without costing you a fortune. At MotherLand we specialise it great quality maternity and breastfeeding clothes at affordable prices If you are working in an office choosing corporate maternity wear that also looks great for a special day or night out will save you money. If you also choose styles that are suitable  to wear during the post pregnancy months and dresses and tops that are suitable for breastfeeding this will save you money in the long run.

If you are intending to breastfeed it is a great idea to purchase maternity dresses, maternity tops and maternity pyjamas that are also suitable for this purpose. Most of our maternity pyjamas are also designed for breastfeeding, as are our maternity nighties. 

Choosing maternity pants, where possible , that you can continue to wear during the post pregnancy months is another helpful tip. Maternity pants, maternity cargo's and maternity shorts with adjustable elastic waistbands are a great choice both during your pregnancy and in the months following the birth of your baby.

Winter Maternity Clothes

With your tempreature rising (literally) when you are pregnant you may be feeling a little confused when you are choosing maternity clothes at this time of the year. Although the cooler weather is upon us, we are experiencing really cold mornings that are turning into sunny days only to cool down again in the late afternoon. Choosing maternity clothes that you can layer is a great way for you to cool down quickly when the weather, or your tempreature rises. Wearing a knitted cardigan or maternity trench coat over your maternity outfit or with your favourite pair of maternity jeans allows you to cool down quickly if you need to. Wearing a long sleeve, stretchy maternity top underneath short sleeve maternity tops and tunics will also stretch your maternity clothing wardrobe further. They can then be easily removed during the middle of the day when the tempreature heats up. You can also wear long sleeve, stretchy maternity tops underneath short sleeve dresses or maternity leggins underneath maternity dresses. Leggings can easily be removed if you find you are getting too hot throughout the day. Motherland has a huge range of affordable maternity clothes to stretch your maternity fashion wardrobe and budget further. The girls at Motherland hope you enjoy your pregnancy and have fun dressing up your bump.
