I bought my BellaBands in 2008 during my first pregnancy. I used them through my second pregnancy in 2010/2011… they still worked perfectly! The quality from Ingrid & Isabel is superb, so spring for theirs and not the knock-offs that have rampaged the market. They also have so much to choose from now as well… def didn’t have those choices in ’08! These bands make the transition to and from maternity clothes a little easier. You won’t believe just how much your body CAN change and WILL if you let it! Don’t take the “eating for two” so literally and you’ll be so much happier later when you can get back into your clothes sooner than later!
