Belly Talk: Find your Perfect Fit

When pregnant, the first item of clothing you’ll notice becoming a bit snug is your pants. Rather than turn to an endless supply of sweatpants and baggy bottoms, our selection of affordable denim, pants, shorts and skirts offer belly panels of all different shapes and sizes that are suited to your desire of comfort.

From full coverage panels and no bellies to fold overs, there’s a belly style you will long to live in. Though our patented Secret Fit Belly®, which offers seamless full coverage and support, is our most popular belly, our helpful Belly Panel Guide offers the information you need to choose the panel you want.

Here’s a snapshot of what we have to offer:

secret fit belly

The Secret Fit Belly® provides full coverage and supports by extending over the entire belly. It can also be folded down to be worn comfortably under the belly, while the smooth, lightweight
fabric maternity panel is soft, supportive and will grow with you. It is great for all three trimesters as well as after the baby is born.

under belly

 The Under Belly sits below the belly. Made with a wide elastic band covered by a soft and stretchy cotton-spandex fabric, this maternity panel contours and supports your belly where you need it most while offering minimal coverage. This belly is ideal for early to mid-pregnancy.

fold over belly

Our Fold Over Belly has a discreetly blended maternity panel with a non-maternity look for all day comfort when active and on the go. This belly is ideal throughout your pregnancy.

 Secret Fit Under Belly

Our Secret Fit Under Belly is a constructed waist featuring elastic inside with small gussets that provide a comfortable stretch, and it sits below the belly for moderate coverage. This belly is ideal for all three trimesters as well as after the baby is born.

The Weekly Find

Welcome to The Weekly Find, featuring a favorite new arrival paired with this, and that.

This week’s find: Citizen of Humanity Avedon Secret Fit Belly® Coated Maternity Jeans

Why it’s a winner:  Can you think of anything sexier than a pair of leather-like skinnies? As a maternity pant that can be dressed down for day with a chunky knit or up for a night out with a silky top, they had us at hello – in every single color.

Pair it with this: convertible sleeve chambray shirt, and that: Vince cashmere sweater. It’s weekend glam at its best!

Denim Do: Destructed

Whether in dark, light or medium wash, destructed denim gives off a covetable vibe of effortlessly cool. We adore a rip here and there in skinny and boyfriend styles, perfect for both casual and dressed-up outings. For day, pair with a chunky knit in an autumnal color and suede camel-colored booties; when the sun sets, go for a black top with lace or leather detailing, a cropped moto jacket and chunky heels.

Day to Night Maternity Looks

A basic but bold tank easily goes from day to night with the inclusion of some pretty extras.

For day, pair our Sleeveless Scoop Neck Maternity Tank with some skinny fit 7 for All Mankind Maternity Jeans. Add a pair of on-trend gold studded smoking flats, a metallic cross-body bag and some sunnies for a coordinated look that screams “I’m a mom-to-be with serious style.”

For night, shed those skinnies, and opt for a sophisticated and flattering maxi skirt. Patent wedges, an eye-catching statement necklace and a leopard print clutch are the perfect accouterments to amp up the glam.
