Bella Band

When you first become pregnant there is that awkward stage where nothing quite fits right. Your old pants are too snug but your too small for maternity. Then when you can fit into maternity you find yourself longing to wear your pre-preggo jeans. After you have the baby, lets just be honest, it can take a while to get your old jeans to button again. This is why Ingrid & Isabel's Bella Bands are so great. You can wear them over your old pants & skirts and they allow you to go unbuttoned & unzipped, the tight fabric keeps your bottoms in place! This extends your wardrobe to last your entire pregnancy. Thats a whole lot cheaper than buying all new items to cover your lower half.

I just had a baby about 6 weeks ago and my Bella Bands have been amazing. I can wear all of my pre-pregnancy clothing (unfortunately they still won't button) and I don't have to worry about my tummy being exposed. Bella Bands give you the option of folding them to whatever size works best for you. At the beginning of a pregnancy you might want to fold them low but towards the end not fold them at all. I am currently wearing mine without a fold. I love how they help make me look slimmer, keep my belly & crack from showing, hold my too small pants up, and provide me with the look of an undershirt or extra layer. Another little bonus I stumbled upon - these are great for nursing. If you don't fold the band, then when you lift your shirt to nurse you are still covered! Bella Bands are available in a variety of colors and you even have the option of choosing one with lace around the edge.Best Blogger Tips

I had a bella band when I was preganant, and continued to enjoy it for a short time after pregnancy. Then I lost it! I wish I had another bella band. This time a white one!

I would LOVE to try a Bella Band in White. I'm 5 months pregnant, working two jobs, and going to night school...so having one less thing to worry about (how my clothes fit) would be great! thanks!

Katie said...

These bands seem so much more useful than I realized! I've heard people talk about them, but I never got one. I am 33 weeks pregnant, and my belly and my waistbands don't agree! I'm getting that lovely midriff look where my pants are falling down, and my shirts are riding up. I would love, love a bella band! Especially for postpartum when I know my pre-preg jeans won't fit! Thanks!

The White Bellaband is my favorite because it goes with everything. This band will help with my clothing size AND Postpartum belly!

Katie said...

...Oh, and white seems to be a popular color, so I'll go with that too.

Sandy said...

these are a lifesaver- they need beerbands for men--ok bad joke- really bad joke. I like the white but prefer the black

Alice H said...

I love the sand color - I'm really pregnant right now and would love to add some variety to my wardrobe. Plus I've heard great things about the bella band. Thanks for the chance! afdr3d@umkc.edu

Linda and Greg said...

What a great site! I am 12 weeks pregnant and realized this morning that I have nothing to wear anymore--so this is great! I think white will be the most versatile! THanks for a great giveaway!

These would be perfect for too short shirts and too short pants. I try not to lift my arms in these kinds of shirts or otherwise my midriff shows. Who shrunk my shirts! I want to know.

I'd love a chocolate in the everyday collection.

Gwen said...

I am 36 weeks pregnant and none of my maternity pants fit anymore and my mat skirts fall down. I also like the thought of being in my non preggo pants earlier. :) I like the wine coloured one.

I loved the tip on nursing - now I have to have one too! ;-) My little guy is 6.5 weeks :) I would love it in black

I'm about 30 weeks along and would love one of these to expand me very small wardrobe right now....and I think it would be great once baby comes as well.

Jennifer said...

I'd love a white one. I'm 2 months and luckily my jeans still fit. (they were roomy before. ) but I'm sure those days are numbered.

The Saunders Family said...

I would love a white one for baby #2, as I have worn my black one to death with #1.

Allison said...

I would LOVE a bella band in white! I'm 21 weeks pregnant with #2 and am smaller than last time so I can still fit into some of my non-maternity pants...this would be wonderful! I've never had one but I've heard how great they are...and that the knock-offs just don't match up to the original!

Amber said...

The white lace bella band is beautiful and would go with most of my clothing. I've always wanted to try a Bella Band, and now that I just entered my 5th month of pregnancy, this would be perfect timing! Oh, and I just subscribed to your newsletter, too! Great site!

piece of me said...

I wanted a Bella Band when I was pregnant with my daughter and never got one. Now I wish I had one to help make my clothes fit better post baby. I would love one in white.

I would LOVE to try a Bella Band in black... perfect for keeping my skirts in circulation this winter as my belly grows!!

Xenia S said...

I've heard great things about the Bella Band and would definitely love to have one. Being pregnant for the second time it seems like none of my maternity clothes fit right and my pants are really the worst. I would choose a white band, maybe with the cute lace, to help me out!

Thanks!

I am 14 weeks pregnant and recently started using rubberbands to keep my pants together. Unfortunately these rubberbands bust on me every time I'm out:) A white one would be great...I had no idea these things even existed!!

Megan said...

I'd love a black one. I had a black one that I used all the time while I was pregnant, but I left it at the hospital when I delivered! It was great to wear as a tube top while I was relaxing in the shower during labor and then doubled over as a little bit of support as my milk came in. I wish I had it now for nursing and keeping my belly in and my pants in place.

i love this site!!! i want and need a bella band because number one i have a knockoff and it's horrible. it get stretched and i have to wash it everyday to get it back to a regular size. number 2 i'ma big girl and it's already hard to find maternity clothes that fit and are cute. i feel like resorting to a muumuu sometimes. at least i do at home :) i'm 33 weeks and am still working so i have to continue to look professional everyday. number three my favorite color is grey :)

Blessings Abound said...

I'd love to have a bella band because although I'm wearing my pre pg size now, my tummy still isn't quite as flat as it was four babies ago! I'd love to have a black lace one! Thanks!

melissad.williams said...

I need a Bella Band so my belly can be covered when nursing without having to wear a nursing shirt! I like the black one!

Alexia said...

I'm actually entering for a friend of mine who is preggo right now. I LOVE Bella Bands and used them non-stop AFTER my son was born. They were perfect for covering up my flabby belly while nursing! I would get white for my friend if I won!

Jenny said...

I had a white bella band (original) and then loaned it to a friend and she never brought it back :-( So I'd want another white one, in a 2. I'm not pregnant now but we hope to start trying within a year or so and I'll need one then! Sometimes I need one now because my jeans are too low-cut and it makes me nervous. BTW, I am SUPER excited about their new line of pants, tanks and leggings. I'll be getting one of each with my next pregnancy for sure!

Plain old black matches almost everything...2 months postpartum, and still have the stomach to prove it!

The Cowleys said...

I am very intrigued to try one of these bella bands. I love my tank tops over my pants so this is great! I think the white one would be the best suited for my wardrobe!

Staci said...

I would love one of these in black. We've been TTC, and this would be perfect for when things finally come together. I regret not having one during my first pregnancy, they seem so amazing. Thanks for the giveaway!

socialwork4kids said...

I desperately wanted one of these when I was pregnant but I learned about them in month 7 and thought...why now?!?! I'd love to have one for my second pregancy and to share with my friends as we all shuffle the maternity clothes around so we feel a little more glamorous!! I'd love the everyday lace in white.

NateAndJakesMom said...

I need one because this is my 3rd baby and I am due to deliver in 3 weeks and I have so many different sizes of pants and I don't want to have to buy another set for postpartum wear. I would choose black since I could use all the "slimming" I can use!

Jeanette said...

This is my second pregnancy and I had never heard of Bella Band before. Now that I have seen and read about them I have to have one. I also subscribe jvaux77@yahoo.com. I would like a white one.

Felicia said...

This would be a wonderful gift to win! My last pregnancy I bought several long tank tops to help cover...but they did not allow me to wear my own pants! This is a wonderful idea that a couple of my friends told me about. I am always looking for ways to save money and this would be an excellent cost cutter! White would probably be my pick!

tiff said...

I'd love to have this as I am planning for a baby very soon and I'd like to be prepared to fit in my clothes!

am newly pregnant, keeping fingers crossed as have done injectable meds to get me here, so will need it in a few weeks.
I am not small, so was pleased to see the range of sizing options. I liked the wine color, from the winter 2008 collection. thanks for the give away.

Roberta said...

I am at that stage where I need one now, I am not buying anyting maternity unless its 75% off at target! I would love one in the black or pink please, thank you very much.

Jen said...

I am 23 weeks pregnant, and really not looking forward to wearing the stupid maternity pants. The Bella Band would allow me to stay in regular pants a lot longer, and I LOVE the layered look, so it's perfect. I would probably get one in black since it would go with a lot of winter clothes.

*Heather* said...

I am 30 weeks pregnant & really could use a bella band. I would love the white one! Thanks for the giveaway!

I'd love to have one of the white ones! jeepcutie82 at msn dot com

Melissa said...

Sorry, I forgot to put my why on there (you can delete my previous post if you'd like), I want the white one for my first pregnancy which will hopefully be soon! It would be so nice to extend the life of my current clothing rather than buying maternity clothes so soon! jeepcutie82 at msn dot com

Julia said...

I'm a plain ol' white girl. Something to go with everything. :) I could really use one to make some of these shorter shirts I have wearable while I'm nursing. My bigger goods make shirts ride a bit high and show off the bowl full of jelly I carry after my third baby in 4 years. :) Thanks!

working said...

I recently found out I was pregnant and my pants fit in the legs but not the stomach. I think a bella band would be great so I can keep wearing my pants!

My husband and I are trying for a baby right now and I am sure if I got preganant one of these would come in very handy. I would like one in white.

sunnymum said...

I am that point in my pregnancy where nothing fits, but my maternity pants keep falling down. I'd love to have a bella band so I don't have to keep hiking my pants up to keep my big underwear from being revealed to everyone around me. I like the winter colors, especially "wine." Thanks for the chance to win.

I need a Bella Band because sometime in the next year I'm planning on becoming pregnant. I didn't have one when I had my baby boy and I've heard how amazing they are, so I would love to have one with my next pregnancy - in black!

Frances said...

I sure could have used this a couple weeks ago, before I had maternity clothes to fit my growing belly. But a Bella will be very handy for me after baby comes in February - modesty during nursing will be key for me! I like the white lace.

Rockin' Mama said...

I'm one of those postpartum gals that is still having trouble fitting into her jeans. I'd love the wine or midnight color!

I need a Bella Band in black for my daughter so she can still wear her regular pants for as long as possible.

I'm getting ready to try for baby #2, and would love to have one in black!

I recently had a tubal reversal, and my husband and I are now pregnant!! My youngest son from my first marriage is 8. I am clueless about maternity clothes, etc. since it has been an "eternity" since my last pregnancy. Your site has truly been helpful, and I would LOVE to try out a bella band in black! I had never heard of them during my previous pregnancies, or I would have tried them back then.
Thanks a bunch!!

CollegeSAHM said...

I am currently 34 weeks pregnant and this looks like the perfect product for me because I am having trouble with my wardrobe (being in school is not helping with that) in these last couple of months and I plan on nursing. I would love a black one to stretch out my wardrobe!

Hi,

You have a nice blog. A 40-week pregnancy is really just a blip in our whole life time, but the problem with clothing during that time is very painful. Keeping this in mind, two best friends and mother of two children each started http://www.bellybundles.com. We have high quality maternity clothes there and we would like to hear your feedback on our products.

Thanks,
Carina - Maternity clothing
