I got the beband from Target and it has done the job. It is definitely not a permanent solution and I actually wear maternity pants more often than not. But I do use my beband for my dress slacks; since I rarely wear them I didn’t want to spend a ton of money on new slacks that I might only wear once or twice during my pregnancy. It does conceal my zipper well and holds my pants up but I do have to adjust after sitting (ie: when I get up from my desk at work sometimes it rides up or my pants start to sag).

 

I can say that it does hold up well after washing.

3 pregnancies and never used one. Didn’t know what you were talking about until I read your post

I got the beband from target as well, I loved it! I never had to buy maternity jeans so I loved that I could wear my “regular” jeans still! I definitely recommend it!!

I know with the one that attaches to your jean buttons to kind of “extend” and cover your underwear, the elastic in them stretches really easily. my beband still fits as snug/comfortable and I’ve washed mine plenty of times.

@Mrs. Gremmlin:  I also use the beband and pair it with the hair tie trick. the two combined I find works the best.

I got one at walmart that’s been great. I always use an elastic on my button as a back up though, because I’m paranoid about having a wardrobe malfunction. It’s held up perfectly in the wash and on the few occasions where I didn’t use a hair elastic on my button it held my pants up just fine.

Just like every pair of Spanx and support wear i’ve ever bought, my BeBand rolls up all the time. But I’m bettin that every brand would do the same for me!

I have the BeBand in all three colors from Target and it’s held up fine so far. I’ve been using it since about six weeks or so (with the rubber band trick) and now I wear it with my maternity jeans (because they’re a little loose). I’m currently at 18 weeks. Yes, a little bit of the stitching around the seams have come loose a little (not unlike any other cheaper camisole) but for the most part, it still does the job and hasn’t shrunk/faded. It was more important to me to have a few in different colors (to match different outfits) then to have one pricier one in one color. Plus, considering I apparently lost one, it’s probably best to have a few on hand, like underwear and socks. I don’t handwash mine either. I just toss it in with the rest of the undergarments. LOL

The BeBand does roll up on me when I’m constantly getting up and down (out of my chair, for example), but I just pull it down like a tanktop/camisole and it’s fine. It doesn’t bother me.

@Mrs. Gremmlin:  

I never even tried those. It seems like a waste of money to me as youll need to get maternity pants in the future anyway…I’d go ahead and just get maternity pants.

I liked the BellaBand (till I got further into the 3rd trimester and now any of those bands feel uncomfortable and tight). It was great for extending the time I could wear my regular pants, though! And I used it for hiding the “muffin-top” love handles that showed up over some of my non-maternity clothes too, haha.

While I do agree that the maternity pants I got eventually are a godsend and I should have gotten them sooner, the Bellaband does have its worth.
