I freaked out when, at only 6 weeks, my pants were already tight. By 8 weeks even my “big girl” jeans weren’t fitting. I wanted to break down and cry…okay for a few minutes I actually did. Whether it was because of the jeans or the hormones, I’ll never know…but I’m blaming the hormones.
What in the world was I going to do…I was still in shock that I was pregnant. Hadn’t even told any of my family yet and I was going home for Easter to break the news to everyone and I couldn’t even find anything to pack.
I had heard that Target had an awesome maternity section, but was dreading going there to look for maternity pants. Not only did I not want to buy them yet, I heard so many stories about them not fitting until you were readily showing (which I wasn’t at the time).
Once I got there, I found, on the end aisle, a “BeBand Maternity” (similar to this one). I was intrigued to say the least. The thought of being able to use this for multiple months would save me a ton. They had them in white, black, and a nude color. I took it out of the package in the store and tried it on right there in the middle of the aisle…I was desperate to find something. I was hooked!

So what are my initial thoughts … 13 weeks after buying this….
It doesn’t feel constricting whatsoever
Whether I unbutton or completely unzip my pants it holds them up
Multiple neutral colors, give you the option to just look like you are wearing another tank top
Still just as tight after multiple washes
Because it is a fairly thin material, depending on the shirt you decide to wear, you can see that the buttons are undone on your pants

For less than half the price as a new pair of maternity jeans, you really can’t beat it. I have recommended it to all of my friends that are currently expecting and will continue to recommend it to anyone that I find out who is!!
