Belly Band Concealment Belt
Bella Bands Products Are a Great Addition to Your Maternity Clothes!
One of the most versatile set of products I discovered during my pregnancy is Ingrid and Isabel’s Essentials Collection. This Collection includes the Everyday Cami, Belly Leggings, Everywhere Pant and the Ruched Tank. The nicest part about these products is that they are super stretchy where they need to be as well as fitted so you do not look fat. Also, they are extremely comfortable to wear and the tops are great for layering in cooler weather or worn alone in warmer weather.
Ingrid and Isabel are of course famous for the Bella Band which is a layering band around the waist and belly which can disguise your pre-pregnancy jeans as you unbutton them for extended wear into pregnancy. The Bella Band can also function to hold up your too big maternity pants during early pregnancy and providing a smooth silhouette. It can also work to hold up your maternity pants full term when folded in half over your hips under a popping belly. Ingrid and Isabel employed this same idea, style and functionality to their leggings, pants, camis and tanks. In this way, you always have fashionable and flattering belly coverage that slims your body instead of adding bulk and stretches with your changing shape.
The Everyday Cami is probably the most versatile product of all. Not only can you wear it alone or layered for the duration of your pregnancy, it is also great for postpartum wear. The cami hugs your figure to give you a sleeker silhouette without constricting your recovering body. Loose postpartum skin is held in place to speed up recovery and even the bust gets some additional light support when worn over a nursing bra. I found this product even worked as nursing wear as the thin stretchy cami straps can be easily pulled down for nursing access under any top while also providing belly coverage.
The Everywhere Pant is another great versatile essential for during and after pregnancy. The waistband can be worn rolled up or folded down throughout pregnancy and postpartum. When you wear the waistband rolled down, nobody would ever suspect that this stylish pant is a maternity pant. The stretchy fabric springs back into shape even after wearing it through nine months of pregnancy. The Everywhere pant is the perfect pant to wear as you recover your pre-pregnancy shape instead of buying all different sizes of regular clothes as you lose your pregnancy pounds. This pant can be dressed up or down which makes it a real go-to pant for everyday errands, the office or an evening out.
Leggings are all the rage now in fashion around the world and a great way to dress up or dress down any outfit, depending on the occasion. Ingrid and Isabel’s Belly Leggings are a great basic product for maternity with a high waistband for pregnancy which can also be rolled down for the final months of pregnancy and postpartum wear. You will find yourself grabbing this everyday product several times a week due to its sheer comfort and versatility.
The Ruched Tank from Ingrid and Isabel’s Everyday Collection is a flattering seamless tank with extra ruching on the sides designed to give you body-friendly pleating around your belly for all stages of your pregnancy. In early pregnancy the extra pleating disguises your belly, as your pregnancy progresses the tank gives you a smooth and supportive silhouette. Postpartum the ruched tank hides your soft recovering belly with heavy pleating. Also the tank is cut extra long to provide you with plenty of belly coverage throughout your pregnancy.
I find having some comfortable essentials in your maternity wardrobe that easily fit and flatter your ever changing shape and can be worn throughout the year makes life a lot easier. And let’s face it, anything that makes pregnancy more comfortable, effortless and flattering is a must! As mentioned all the Everyday items can be worn postpartum, which makes them a very worthwhile investment.
Both the Everyday Cami and Ruched Tank come in Black, White and Midnight while Belly Leggings and the Everywhere Pant come in black. These colors easily mix and match with your entire maternity wardrobe which makes them an absolute “essential” basic for your maternity wardrobe and beyond!
