i went out and got a bella band (well, 2 actually). I got the original one. AND the best part, they were 50% off at this little maternity shop downtown. I figured, why not get 2 So I got a black and a white one, and they are SO comfy. Jusssstttt had to share. Two thumbs up for this thing, I can wear jeans but it FEELS like your wearing sweats lol

I'm hoping to get one or two Monday since that's when we're going shopping now. It sounds so comfy - I can't wait!

^^ I don't think you can. What you can get though are belt extensions. Places like BNT and Baby Bunting sell them.

Can you wear these your whole pregnancy or only until they no longer fit and you are forced into buying maternity pants? I am interested in buying them but not if ill have to get a whole maternity wardrobe in a couple months!

My maternity pants keep falling down...I don't know if it's because they are too big or too little...

I might need to go get a bella band...

OMG I'm so happy to see you over here. I love those Bella Bands. They are awsome. I can't believe you are 10 weeks. This is such wonderful news.

I got one, a generic one but I like it! I tried doing the trick where some women put it on, pull their pants over it then fold the band over the top of their pants but I already had an embarrasing moment at work (and I work with mostly all men). The folded over section started to roll up and ended up rolling completely off my pants exposing my unbottoned pants and underwear (which I had the band tucked into to keep it in my pants). It was one of those, I hope he didn't just see what I think he saw moments.
Anyhow, I would recommend just wearing it under your shirt and pull it down over your pants for the layered look. It was comfortable (and not noticable even under a fitted shirt) and I wasn't as worried about it.
I would think anyone with a J-Lo booty and small waist (like myself) will have this problem with the band rolling if folded over their pants instead of pulled over.

Also, for the ladies in Australia I would think you could just purchase one online. They are one size fits all (at least the one I bought from Motherhood Maternity was).

the ones i got come in 4 sizes. When I went to the store to get them they actually had "sample" ones to try on to see which one fit best. I wore it all day today, and I DID have the rolling down problem to i decided to wear it as a layered type look lol

I thought about getting them but I only can get them online in my area it seems....and they are a little expensive for my taste...LOL....

Plus I have a lot of maternity pants that grow with you so I'll just wear those. They are comfy and I button them to fit me now and later I'll unbutton them so they grow...

Congrats on the bargain shopping. Getting a cheap deal is so much fun!!
