I finally went in my attic and dug out all my maternity clothing. I didn't think it would fit just yet, but most things do. I am so happy! I feel so much better, tight pants and feeling like a fat frump are never good. Finally the elastic is back
I have a few different types of maternity pants, under the belly and over the belly, and I was wondering what other people prefer. I'm an under the belly gal, but my good friend who was pregnant with me last time was an over the belly only gal.
I'm trying to add a poll.. can anyone help? Gotta go pick up DD.. won't be back for a few hours.. grrr to you 'poll'
I love maternity clothes! I have been wearing them for weeks now and am currently waiting for a box from Gap.com to arrive with yet more. Yay!
For parents and skirts, I prefer the panel that goes all the way around the waistband and up over the belly. I don't know what you call it. I can't stand the ones that are JUST a belly panel. For some reason, they make me feel like I'm falling forward when I try them on. It's weird, I know.
I am an above the belly girl for anything tight (like jeans) and an under the belly girl for anything made of stretchy material. I have major issues with anything being tight on my stomach while preggo, so the stiff demi panels make me want to puke.
I dug out all my maternity clothes a few weeks ago and everything fits except my t-shirts. They are all way too short. So I ordered some from GAP and bought a few at Old Navy to tide me over!
Thank you so much .:Shortcake:. for my beautiful siggy!
Nikki - tight things around my belly make me want to puke too. But I can't wear the full over the belly pants because I feel the tightness around my stomach. I need the under the belly clothes at least in the beginning..
I wish I still had my maternity clothes! Silly me sold them all thinking that we were done having kiddos after our last dd. I should have known better since neither of us had had a permenant fix.LOL Anyway, I'm a full panel gal. The only way I'll wear the below the belly bottoms is if I use a bella band with them. I can't stand having to constantly pull my pants up, and that's what I have to do if I wear the below the belly without a band.
I have full belly panels, and its basically like having my work shirt tucked in, even though I now can't tuck it in, lol.
I have worn one skirt this entire time, and I have to say: I think I'll be sticking to below the belly ones, they make me feel less like the titanic.
