I owe Ingrid & Isabel a huge Thank You. Not only did they save my life while I was pregnant, they are still doing it.

Ingrid Carney is the creator of the Bella Band, an absolute must-have if you ask me. Made of super soft nylon & spandex, the Bella Band comes in an array of colors and is also offered in organic cotton. The Bella Band offers many levels of support throughout your entire pregnancy. From hiding that unsnapped top button on your pre-preg jeans to holding up your maternity jeans post-preg, it is the great helping hand of awkward clothing. It can even allow you to sneak some non-maternity shirts into your pregnancy wardrobe (Thank God, what is up with all those shirt strings, why?).

Ingrid & Isabel have now expanded their line to include an ‘Essentials Collection’ of which I was lucky enough to try the belly leggings from. I’m in love. Now, usually I’m not a leggings person unless it’s snowing out & I need the extra warmth but these babies have offered me great support in the last week or so. I practically lived in them the last few days of my pregnancy and they were the most comfortable post-partum item I had in my hospital bag. Most of you know how, um, vulnerable your belly feels after giving birth & these leggings totally do the trick so that I feel a little more ‘put together’ so to speak. Ingrid & Isabel also offers an Everywear Pant, Ruched Tank & and Everyday Cami. I’m sure I’ll be using my Bella Band & Belly Leggings all winter long as I get ready for swimsuit season again!
