In honor of Joey and Pheobe’s maternity Thanksgiving pants, we’re talking about how to cover your growing baby bump. (Google the episode for a good laugh.)

Ingrid & Isabel invented the Bellaband, expanding your non-maternity pants since 2001. Use the band over regular pants and they will have the added coverage before (and after) you are mentally ready to begin buying maternity apparel.

With the Bellaband, there’s no need to buy a new pair of pants every time your stomach pops just a little bit more. The band styles work for barely-pregnant through really pregnant. Skip those DIY videos with the "rubber band trick" and give yourself the gift of daily comfort with a belly band. And if you don’t have to buy a new set of pants every trimester, you can put those savings toward other comfortable pieces that will keep your #fitbump confident through 40 weeks into postpartum. 

Buying online can feel intimidating, yet the Ingrid & Isabel website is easy to navigate and is filled with detailed information to find the right fit. Sort by clothing type, occasion, and trimester. Each of the site’s models shares their height, months pregnant, and what size they’re modeling, so you can feel more confident in picking the perfect size for you. And, if you do pick the wrong size, they’ll exchange for a different size for free.

This company clearly designed this with pregnant, ever-changing, unique bodies in mind. If only online shopping were always this easy!

 The Active Moto Legging [shown here] is our favorite! It is functional for day or night and figure flattering on all the moms who tried them.

When our moms tried on the Ingrid & Isabel apparel at the Pump the Bump photoshoot in September, every mom commented on how soft the fabric was. It’s almost like as women we forgot how apparel can feel if we purchase quality pieces over throw away impulse buys. Their active wear is functional but can also offer you a little personality. Sure you can choose solid colors but why not show off your figure with some flair! From a little mesh to a little gloss, all of their leggings have a waistband that can be rolled up and down for full comfort even during your postpartum fitness journey.

Looking for work clothes that are as comfortable as your leggings? Their ¾ sleeve shirred dress is versatile and could easily stay in a gym bag for wearing after a workout. Pop on a blazer to lead your presentation and then come home to elevate those feet on the couch without having to take the time to change.

 Imagine a comfortable sweatshirt but in dress form. The Long Sleeve Trapeze Dress {shown here} is fitted in the right places to show off curves yet still forgiving in other areas for your growing bump.

Ingrid & Isabel is an example of a company that is evolving with women. Pregnancy doesn’t have to stop us being multitasking mamas and we need more brands that support our #fitpregnancy goals. If you make a few of their items staple pieces in your pregnancy wardrobe we know you won’t be disappointed, unlike with season 8 of Friends.
