The Weekly Find

maternity pants

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

This week’s find:  Ella Moss Under Belly Crepe De Chine Drawstring Maternity Pants from Destination Maternity.

Why it’s a winner: Hot on two huge trends for spring, floral and slouchy silhouettes, these Ella Moss pants combine the best of both worlds. Worn casual with delicate ballet flats and a simple tee or dressed up with wedges and a leather jacket, they are the epitome of polished-cool.

Pair it with this: a simple ¾ Sleeve Scoop Neck Side Ruched Maternity T Shirt in black or white keeps the focus on those fabulous pants; and that: a gorgeously hued True Love Scarf by Love Quotes.

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.

Blue Beauties

maternity clothes

An instant way to brighten up your look, cool blues are making themselves known this season. An ideal color to pair with grounding neutrals – such as black, brown and white – we love how blue can exude a bold and bright pop of color or tone things down in a dark and mysterious shade. Flattering on just about every skin tone, it would be a shame to miss out on this cooling hue.
