  • Hey, my mom had 6 kids and never once wore a maternity garment. She held her pants on with a rubber band, and wore one of my dad's shirts for a top! I wouldn't go that far, but you don't NEED to spend a lot of money on maternity clothes. Especially since most of us aren't rolling in $$.

  • I bought one of the bands at Motherhood and with it on I can wear all of my pants!! LOVE IT!!!! The other tip I would give is to go to resale shops if you are looking to not spend a lot of money

  • I bought one online when I was pregnant. Mine was a Bella Band... I forget how much I paid for it. But I used it a lot! I bought a medium but wished that I would have bought a small so it could have been tighter. But I also used rubber bands too, just like everyone else on here says!
