Pregnancy #3 has me all sorts of bloated. Not to mention that I was JUST pregnant and I feel like I looked 18 weeks at 6 weeks and its only gotten worse although the bloat is starting to even out and I’m pretty sure that’s a real live bump that I’m seeing! It doesn’t help that I didn’t lose the baby weight after Elena either
Since I got pregnant I’ve been living in yoga style pants they feel so much better on my bloat and bump! And for the last month or so I’ve been living in my B.D.A pants from Belly Bandit. They are seriously the most comfortable and versatile pants that I own right now!
BDA stands for Before, During and After Pregnancy.
Before, During and after pregnancy you can adjust the panel using the strings on the side. The tighter you put that the shorter the fold over will be. Right now mine are at a tighter setting since my bump isn’t big enough to hold up the length of the panel but I’m sure by 3rd trimester they will be!
The material of these pants are fantastic, they are light and airy and so far I’ve worn them with it being fairly hot (80s) and cold (60s) making the pants perfect no matter when you’re pregnant or not. The best way I could describe the material is like Jersey Cotton but SOFTER. Imagine that!?
If you still think you’ll be too hot, no need to worry, they also make BDA Minis!
Another thing I love about these pants has to do with the material again. Because of the material the pants are made of you can just cut off the bottoms, no need to hem. This is perfect for me since I’m short. I cut them as soon as they got here and have had no problems with them not being hemmed and I’ve already worn and washed them multiple times with no fraying.
These are the pants pre-self hem (aka easily cutting it myself)
These are my pants post hem aka cutting myself. I could have went a littler shorter but chose to wait until my belly gets bigger because sometimes I wear these pants above my belly and other times below (<—see versatile)
I could go on and on but you *you* need to try these for yourself 🙂
