Wouldn’t it be great if you could continue to wear more of your non-maternity clothing while pregnant? The problems I have always had during pregnancies are my regular, non-maternity shirts are too short, and I can’t button my regular jeans. Well, you could use a belly band, which is great, but what about a fun, stylish belly bend that doesn’t even look like a belly band!? I made some for myself using knit and cut off shirts: one with a button up shirt hem and one with a gathered chiffon shirt hem. If you’d like to to make some, look at the belly band with shirt hem tutorial over at DIY Maternity!
These specialty belly bands do three important things while also looking cute and stylish:
- They bridge the gap if my shirts or sweaters are too short.
- They help hold up my pants.
- They cover my backside when I wear leggings.
