It's so you can wear your existing clothes, it covers the gap between your top and your trousers and also means you can wear your trousers undone under the bump and it will hold them up...

Best prgnancy buy EVER all your shorter tops that will start to gape can be worn for your whole pregnancy as well as holding your open jeans up

I bought all mine at Blooming Marvellous, and they're really good quality, but 10 each. Right after I kitted myself out, I saw that New Look sold them at stupid cheap prices. The quality is lower (i.e. the material is thinner, and once the material is stretched over your belly, it doesn't shrink properly again until you wash it (which means they eventually get baggy if you're wearing them the whole day), but they're good.

The best maternity investment I made, although we moved abroad when I was 30 weeks, and we accidentally left all my maternity clothes in the UK with my mum, so I didn't get to use them when I needed them most Still waiting to fly back and pick them up, haha!

I LOVEED my bump bands when i was prego with my son. Even the maternity stuff near the end only just about covered my bump all up (im 5'10" and my son was a big boy!) I think they are the best thing I bought...I would recommend the New Look ones

Matalan sell 2 for 8. In fact Matalan sell some lovely maternity clothes

But I always thought they were to support your bump, when its feeling a bit heavy/strained? My friend was given one off her midwife when she was struggling with SPD to support everything a bit better cos she could hardly walk.

i have heard they are to support the bump as well but i think them ones are thicker and stronger

the thinner ones you buy in shops are to go under tshirts and over open jeans so you can keep wearing your clothes for longer

i dont really like them to be honest as if i used it to keep wearing my normal clothes whilst pregnant 1. i feel weird walking around with my jeans undone even if you cant see the zip and 2. your tops become all stretched and mishaped trying to wear them over a big bump!!

i think its easier just to pick up some cheap maternity clothes or clothes in bigger sizes lol
