Q and A
What are the most essential maternity pants for me to buy?
Jeans, leggings, and pants that you can work and go out in are the most essential items in your pregnancy wardrobe. You want to choose things that are flexible, comfortable, and of course stylish enough to satisfy your inner fashionista. We make that easy with our large selections of maternity pants that fit every need and suit every fashion.
Can I wear the same things I wear now?
Yes. There are analogues for every kind of standard pant in the world of maternity clothing. That goes for skinny jeans, capris, boot cuts - you name it, and you can get it at Belly Dance Maternity, and all from the very top designers in the industry.
You can also literally wear the same things you wear now for the first part of your pregnancy. A simple BellaBand allows you to extend the life of your current pants far into your term. Simply apply the BellaBand around the top of your current pants and you can wear them unbuttoned, unzipped, but completely secure and fashionably. The BellaBand doesn’t ride up, and you can either hide it or let it show, achieving a layered look.
What makes maternity pants, maternity?
The idea behind maternity pants is that you can keep your fashion up to date but still have all the comforts of maternity wear. Most maternity pants have some sort of modified waistband to accommodate your growing belly. Generally, they are made of fabrics with more stretch to them.
What kind of bands should I expect with my maternity pants?
It's all in the details. We know finding the right fit can be quite an adventure, so here's the maternity 411: a quick guide to what kind of options you have when it comes to band fit.
Underbelly – This is your basic across the front band. This style sits low, allowing your bump to grow and supporting you as you do so. The back looks just like a pair of non-maternity pants.
Hidden Tabs – Have you ever seen toddler pants before? It's the same basic idea. Elastic sitting inside the band can be tightened or loosened as needed and held in place by buttons. These also sit low under your belly, and are great while you're growing and wonderful after the baby as you get back in to your pants.
Belly Panel – Stretchy elastic panel pulls up over your bump holding your pants up where they belong. We find this style is very comfortable for women who are nearing the end of their pregnancy as the belly fills out the panel.
Pocket panel – Built in stretchy side panels allow these pants to expand as your belly grows. Nice and inconspicuous as the jeans have a zipper and button, true to non-maternity jean fashion.
You just can't go wrong with any premium maternity denim or pant as the different bands cater to the personal preference of each mom-to-be. Our team will be happy to assist you in finding your perfect match!
