maternity clothes

I am just starting to get to the point where my jeans are kicking my butt, comfort wise. I will likely only be able to wear them another couple weeks. I was wondering which I would get more use out of, the kind of maternity jeans with the band that goes over the belly or the kind that fit under the belly?

  • I agree that it really depends on you. I thought I would like the ones that are over the belly, but I've found them to be too hot during the summer. I'm way more comfy in the under belly pants. I agree on the bella band for helping to keep pre-pregnancy jeans up and maternity pants up before you are big enough to really into them.

  • I LOVE OVER THE BELLY. I JUST BOUGHT SOME UNDER THE BELLY SHORTS FROM OLD NAVY AND THEY ARE SO UNCOMFORTABLE. I MAINLY USE THE BELLABAND. THEY SELL THEM AT TARGET, ITS JUST A BAND THAT GOES OVER YOUR UNZIPPED/UNBUTTONED PRE-PREGNANCY JEANS. I LOVE IT. AND THE GOOD THING I ALSO LIKE ABOUT THEM IS I HAVE GONE UP 2 JEAN SIZES (YEAH MY BUTT IS GROWING WITH MY BELLY) AND I JUST BOUGHT CHEAP JEANS AND THREW THE BAND OVER IT, ITS CHEAPER THEN BUYING MATERNITY JEANS

  • That should say before you are big enough to really FIT into them.

  • It depends on your comfort. I HATED the over the belly ones so all I got where the under the belly ones. I also used a bella band to help keep them up. My friend at first really enjoyed the over the belly ones until she got a bout 21 weeks along and HATED them as well but she went crazy maternity clothes shopping when she was 4 weeks along and that was all she bought and regreted it when she actually got big enough to wear the maternity clothes.
