Rosie Kate commented on yesterday's post, suggesting I try a belly band to accommodate my growing waistline. If you're not familiar with this pregnancy invention [which goes by a variety of brand names], the premise is smart: as Rosie Katie describes, "It's just a stretchy tube of soft cotton jersey knit that you wear around your waist over the top part of your pants. You can wear your pants completely unzipped, and no one knows-- it just looks like a tank top peaking out."
Sounds great...ONLY I purchased one last week and haven't had any luck. The band wants crawl everywhere EXCEPT my belly...thus revealing those unzipped pants! X-Y-P-Z.
In an effort not to waste the band, I've been considering some alternative uses inspired by the classic Survivor Buff.
