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.

What's Your Maternity Clothing Style ?

Being pregnant can be a great excuse to experiment with fashion while you have fun dressing up your bump. We asked one of our customers to tell us about their maternity clothing style ....... I loved dressing up my bump during all of my pregnancies. I chose maternity dresses that I could dress up or down to stretch my maternity clothing budget further. I also felt more daring with my maternity clothes feeling great in more feminine styles, adding a few more frills than I would normally wear and I loved wearing bold, bright colours. I also chose maternity clothes that I thought would be suitable to wear post pregnancy as I knew it would take a while to regain my post pregnancy shape. I had an overwhelming desire to dress up my bump.

I purchased 2 pairs of maternity jeans. Jeans are such a staple in most peoples wardrobes so a great pair of comfortable maternity jeans are a must. I chose maternity jeans that had a belly band attached which I continued to wear for 3 or 4 moths after my baby was born. I just rolled the belly band down and they were really comfortable. I paired my maternity leggings with soft, stretchy maternity tanks and a maternity hoodie for exercising in and then wore them with long maternity tops and flats for shopping and casual outings. I also wore my maternity leggings under dresses with boots in winter. There are loads of ways to wear maternity leggings. I also transformed some of my summer maternity dresses into winter outfits by wearing a long sleeve maternity top underneath with my leggings and boots. My most versatile outfit was my short sleeve maternity wrap dress (which I still wear now). I wore it in summer with flats or heels and then I added a long sleeve turtleneck underneath in winter. I also bought a comfortable pair of maternity pyjamas which I really appreciated during my hospital stay when I was breastfeeding with guests dropping in.
