Update: New Bella Band Colors for Fall

10/21/2007 at 06:18 AM ET

105344350Update: One of my favorite maternity accessories, the Bella Band by Ingrid and Isabel, has added three more great colors for fall. Check out pepper (a spicy red), mocha ( a lighter brown – a nice twist on the popular chocolate brown color that I love) and slate (gray).  Perfect for the mama-to-be to wear as her belly gets bigger, to cover up pants that aren’t closing anymore or shirts that may be too short. At 29 weeks, pregnant, I still wear one everyday. I like the way it supports my now HUGE belly and has helped me to cut down on the maternity clothes that I’ve had to buy.  I plan to wear them during my "fourth" trimester for support and coverage for breastfeeding! Bella Band, I am in love with you!

Original Review: Bella Band – 13 Weeks Pregnant

If you are pregnant, you need the Bella Band. It will take you from your first trimester to your third and even in your "fourth" as your body goes back to normal (albeit slowly).

Company Owner Ingrid Charney "popped" when she was four months pregnant with her daughter Isabel. Frustrated because she was dressing for work and couldn’t button her pants, she finally took a tube top and pulled it up over her hips. Though it was thick and not ideal for a expanding belly, it worked. She untucked her shirt and went to work. Ingrid said, via her website, "In the coming weeks I found I could also wear my new accessory with maternity clothes I wasn’t yet big enough to fill. Ultimately, I had more choices and less frustration finding something to wear every day. That’s when I wondered if other women would want something like this. Over a year later the Bella Band was born. And the inspiration, you might say, was my daughter Isabel, now age five —that once pesky bump in my belly!"

Ingrid was kind enough to send me some Bella Bands to test out. I fell in love with the product. Basically, every day you will find me wearing one. My favorite is the black lace. I am now wearing some of my regular clothes and some maternity clothes. My regular pants will not button and the Bella Band hides that.  I hate the big panels on my shorts, so the Bella Band covers it up as well. It looks great – no one knows I’m wearing it unless I tell them. It also supports my tummy and I actually feel better when I wear it. Another plus, my almost 2 year old son always yanks up my shirt to see my tummy – the Bella Band preserves my modesty.

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
