Ingrid & Isabel: Maternity Wear That Stretches & Grows With You

Have you heard of Ingrid & Isabel? If not, perhaps you’ve heard of the ”Bellaband”. The infamous stretchy band worn during pregnancy, quickly became a favorite ‘must-have’ accessory for pregnant women almost as soon as it came out. Ingrid Carney, Founder and CEO of the company created the accessory as a way for women to wear their favorite pants without having to switch over to maternity brands straight away.

I have been familiar with the Bellaband for quite some time, but I had never tried out Ingrid & Isabel’s maternity wear until recently. For the last few weeks I’ve reached the stage in my pregnancy where everything is too tight.  Any kind of waistband, pant, short or bottom in general seems to restrict movement and makes me oh so uncomfortable.

When I heard about the stretchy pieces from Ingrid & Isabel, I was excited to test them out and am happy to report that wearing them consistently over the last couple of weeks has been nothing short of a pleasure to put it mildly.
