    Default Help! Stuck in a clothing size limbo!

    So I know this has been talked about before I'm sure but I'm new... new to all of this actually. I have a sister with babies and my best friend has had kids but I feel stupid asking them so many questions constantly. I'm stuck in a limbo between my clothes are WAY too tight now (mostly my pants) and not showing really to buy maternity pants. Any suggestions? I seriously dont know what is out there and what is best so anything you have to offer is much appreciated! Thank you!

    I have to wear my regular pants, unbuttoned. Some of the ladies here have a Bella Band - I don't, but you might want to look into getting one.

    Its a stretchy tube of fabric that goes over your unbuttoned pants. Its made to look like a camisole. Personally it has not been working for me. It bunches up to easily and makes me look squishier than I am. I ended up just buying a size bigger pants and some loose fitting shirts. I'm hoping this last me until I fit into maternity clothes.

    I love my belly bands. I got one from Motherhood Maternity and one from Target. I haven't worn my pants buttoned in like a month now LOL! The only thing I would say is that if you are wearing too many layers (think shirt, with tank top under neath, and then belly band under that) the tank top has a tendency to get kind of "stuck" (maybe static) in weird places and then you can see the bunched up line under the top shirt, and that looks kind of weird. But I don't really care, I just fix it again when I catch sight of it.

    I ordered one from ebay! Just figured I'd try it out and see if I like it and if so I'll buy more colors. Thanks for the tips!

    I never liked my belly band either. I would just wrap a rubber band around and through my pants button until I couldn't do that anymore.
