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.

Feel Good Throughout Your Pregnancy

Although you may be experiencing some typical pregnancy symtoms such as morning sickness during your pregnancy, there are some things that you can do to help yourself look and feel your best throughout your pregnancy. Drinking plenty of water, engaging in regular light exercise, eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of rest and pampering yourself from time to time will help. 

I loved taking walks along the beach and yoga classes throughout my pregnancy. They helped relax me and allowed me to reap the benefits of exercise. Light exercise throughout your pregnancy will also help you regain your pre pregnancy body after the birth of your baby more easily. When exercising during your pregnancy be sure to choose maternity clothes made from soft, stretchy fabrics that will move with your body and regain their shape afterwards. Maternity leggings made from cotton jersey or bamboo jersey fabrics are a great choice. You can pair them with maternity tanks suitable for exercise. A comfortable maternity hoodie is a great choice for warming up and down. Some maternity leggings have a soft elastic waist and are designed to be worn over your growing bump, whilst other maternity leggings are low cut and designed to be worn under your belly. You can then pair your maternity leggins with long maternity tops to stretch your maternity clothing budget further. Choosing maternity clothes that you can mix and match will extend your maternity fashion wardrobe further and save you money.
