I HATE all my maternity pants............

I'm not sure what the deal is, but EVERY single pair of maternity pants that I own fits great for about 10 min. Then, they slowing start loosening and I end up pulling them up every time I sit, stand up, walk....ect....
It's just ANNOYING! I am wearing a bella band but still, it's ridiculous that ALL of my pants are just too stretchy or something

I don't recall this problem with the last two pregnancies

Thanks for letting me vent

Re: I HATE all my maternity pants............

Not in your due date month but just wanted to say that I know how you feel. All of the maternity pants that have the "full panel" get loose and start to fall down. I thought that after my bump got bigger they would stay up better but they're actually falling down more. I found that wearing a tighter tank top (instead of a bellyband) really helps keep my pants up... Good luck mama!

*saw this on the front page*

Try to get a pair of the secret fit panel. They're the only ones that didn't do that on me when I was pg with DD. You can get a pair for a reasonable price on eBay.

Also, you could try getting a size smaller than you usually wear. That way when you first put them on, they might be tight, but then when they loosen up, they'll fit. I also do this with my regular jeans.

Yes unfortunately, all of mine are the secret fit
I think maybe it's just the way I am carrying because mine are all small/med and I am NOT a tiny mama.

Oops, triple post!

I blamed it on the Bumgenius launch. It made my internet practically crash, LOL. Probably not really, it was something else.

Re: I HATE all my maternity pants............

all my mat stuff is either too big, or too small.. its driving me nuts! lol My good friend lent me all her mat stuff, and her boobs are like 3Xtoo small, so half of her shirts dont fit me in the boobs, but then she has a bigger butt.. so half of her pants are too big.
its quite frustrating! lol I feel your pain

The pair of capris I'm wearing is causing the same problem. What a pain.

Re: I HATE all my maternity pants............

I got these jeans from Old Navy a few weeks back. They're ALREADY running on the back where the panel meets the denim fabric! Also, the seam that I'm talking about? Yeah, it runs BARELY above the crack of my rear, so even though my pants ARE pulled up, they constantly feel like they're falling down exposing butt cleavage.
Annoying.
