It’s not news, but it’s worthy of yet another recommendation: the BellaBand. This stretchy fabric band has been a lifesaver and it’s still working for me, letting me wear non-maternity pants and slightly-too-short shirts at nearly 33 weeks into my pregnancy. There are plenty of generic versions–and I’m sure they work fine–but I’ve been really happy with the original. The key is to make sure that the band is wide enough to wear either stretched over your belly or folded in half underneath, over your unzipped zipper (I loop a hairband around my button and through the buttonhole for added security). There’s a nice video about using one, here.
