Remaining in PrePregnancy Clothes

Tummy Tie: Ga Ga or Gag?

Mamas-to-be go to great lengths to keep their pre-pregnancy wardrobe working as long as possible. Necessity is the mother of invention, so it is no surprise that the age-old maternity trick of using a rubber band to keep your unbuttoned pants closed has led to the creation of an elastic designed expressly for women hoping to stave off maternity clothes for a few more weeks.

The Tummy Tie ($15 for three) threads through a pants' buttonhole and reattaches to the button, keeping trousers closed and flat against the belly. Its creator claims that the ties can be used for the first five or six months of pregnancy, given the stretchiness of the fabric and two sizes included in each pack.

Would you give the Tummy Tie a try?

I use the fabric elastic hair bands. They look and work the same and less than $5 for like 20. With my first pregnancy I did by some thing that has an elastic that hooks on to the button and has a peice of fabric to cover that gap that the open zipper leaves (forgot what it was called).

my (pregnant) friend is using this thing called 'be-bands' from target, its like this super elastic band that you wear on top of unbuttoned pants.. and they keep the opened flaps from showing. it looks super cool, and id rather invest in that.

I am using rubber bands at the moment and they are a pain; something like this might be easier. I'm holding off buying maternity pants for work for as long as possible!

I will most likely stick to elastic bands for my hair when I need the extra room in my pants.
