The Pregnancy Transition
Two friends are in the early maternity stage. At three months pregnant, I remember busting out of my normal clothes but I'd be swimming in any type of maternity clothes. For me, the greatest comfy thing for a growing belly were yoga pants and the assortment of low-rise stretchy pants you find nowadays. I even found several pairs of work-appropriate black stretchy yoga pants.
Also, a recently pregnant friend turned me on to the Bella Band. From the website:
"Newly pregnant? Pre-pregnancy pants won't fasten around your waist? Cute maternity fashions a bit big right now? Or maybe you're further along, but some of those maternity styles are falling down around your hips.
The Bella Band is a seamless knit band you wear at your waistline, over your unbuttoned pre-pregnancy pants, over slightly big maternity pants, or around the waistband of any maternity style that falls down around your hips."
Here in Portland, the Bella Band can be found at Generations at 4029 SE Hawthorne / 503.233.8130. Looks like it runs $26, which could be worth it if you can get a few more weeks of wear out of your non-maternity pants!
