Has anyone ever tried the "belly belt"?

Has anyone ever tried the "belly belt"? eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

I'm 13 weeks pg with my second and already busting out of my pants. I bought a Be-band (like a Bella Band, but from Target) and I didn't really like it - my pants kept slipping down and my shirt kept hiking up over the band too! Any thoughts are appreciated!

One of my friends had one of those, but it always showed I preferred using a rubber band to keep mine closed, and a belly band over that so my open zipper didn't show. It just looked like I was layering a tank under my shirts.

And Congrats!

Yes, me 4!! I still do this on some of my jeans. Sorry the bella band things aren't working for you -- I use mine constantly now and don't know what I'd do w/ out them! I will say this... I have both the Target brand one and the Bella Band one and I like the Bella Band one better

I asked about the belly belt a few months ago and someone (Danielle?) said they had tried it and it made them look like they had a "package" (now that I think of it, it probably wasn't Danielle b/c she would have said "pecker" not "package")...

I have been using one of these (thanks to Jennifer) and it's kept me in my regular jeans up until now (30 wks) - I have 2 of them and now I hook the two together and it gives me just the right amount of extra baby space!

Thanks everyone!!! I actually have been using a rubber band for my jeans, it seems to work okay. So I might just continue with that and the belly band over it like Staci said. And Jess, I have heard people say that the actual Bella Band IS better, I'll probably check out ebay for one.

Yeah, I think I'll just stick to the rubber band for now, LOL!

And Dojoqueen - my due date is March 27. Funny thing is that my DS was born Jan 23, 2009 which was the five year anniversary of mine and my husbands first date. And our wedding anniversary is March 31st, just 4 days after the due date of this one. That would be too funny if this one is born on our wedding anniversary!
