I was only one and half months pregnant with my first child when I got to know about Belly Bands for Pregnancy from a good friend. Although my baby was planned and I was very happy and excited about the prospect of becoming a mother, but at the same time, I was worried that I would have to buy so many new clothes of bigger sizes for myself. Already we were tight regarding our budget and with the baby coming up, we were more eager to buy stuff for it than for us. My good friend told me about these bands during pregnancy and how they help in extending the time period for pregnant women to wear their normal clothes.
These bands are stretchable so women do not have to worry about their growing bellies. The exposure of skin from beneath the belly is also able to be easily hidden whilst wearing these bands. A very interesting advantage is that pregnant women tend to enjoy the kind of support belly bands provide to their growing stomach. It obviously becomes hard with the passage of time for a woman to carry around a heavy tummy with a child growing inside it. These bands come in handy at that time by giving a bit of support needed.
Women can wear their jeans as well while wearing these bands. All they have to do is just leave the buttons of their jeans open and the belly band will cover the exposed skin. They would feel exactly the same comfort.
As I mentioned before, a little bit of investment is required in getting a belly band for pregnancy and a woman is saved from all the expenses that come with buying a whole maternity wardrobe. This is how it's feasible. Belly bands are available in different styles also so one can choose their own. Even after pregnancy, these bands turn out to be extremely useful when a woman is in the phase of returning to her normal size. They begin to act as body shapers and smooth out the panty lines. Also, when a woman has to breast feed her baby, these bands again act beneficial in keeping her covered during that time.
Every pregnant woman goes through the dilemma of back aches during pregnancy. Belly bands for pregnancy also provide support to their backs, hence avoiding those aches, and ultimately make life a lot easier.
