That sounds so easy even I could do it! Thank you so much for posting this! Now I know what to do with the cami's with shelf-bras that I have not been able to wear since I am breastfeeding! I will convert them to belly bands instead!

Re: I LOVE LOVE LOVE MY BELLA BAND!

I have one and I absolutely love it. I can still wear my regular jeans with it, unbuttoned, but the best part is it keeps up maternity jeans, too! No plumber butt!

Most of my maternity shirts are getting too short, too, so when I'm not in the mood to go around with my belly hanging out the bella band makes me look layered instead of trashy... lol.

And for those considering making them from camis... IMO the bella band works so well to keep your pants up because it is pretty thick and very stretchy. Seems like pure spandex. This makes it fit pretty tight at your hips to hold the pants up but not constrict your belly too much. So, that's something to think about when making your own- some materials aren't going to hold your pants up as well.

Re: I LOVE LOVE LOVE MY BELLA BAND!

Those are cool! i've never seen one but I definitely need to get one - we've been out of town for the last 8 days and got back in late last night and just over those 8 days I now only have ONE skirt that I can wear - all my pants and skirts are too tight! I'll definitely have to go by Motherhood and see what they have to try then maybe order a bella band!

Re: I LOVE LOVE LOVE MY BELLA BAND!

I did find a mama shop somewhere, too, that has their own brand with like 5 or 6 different colors... I really need to find that again! It was a cheaper version but I can't remember where I found it...

There are also some on amazon.com that run about $16 each.
