The secret fit belly are REALLY comfy and don't press on your tummy at all. I had the same problem Wendy with the sizes at Motherhood. There was only one style that fit me that came in a small and of course they only had one pair! I am glad to hear about old navy because I want to see what they have as well. It is difficult when you are small because everything in maternity is so big. Chandra- the band on mine doesn't go all the way up to my boobs, and is super light and comfy and doesn't constrict at all. Motherhood does have petite maternity clothes- which I thought I would need as I am just under 5'4, but they were too short for me- so they might work for you!

I'm in the UK, but did see the 'Secret Fit' ones after clicking a link from this site, I really liked the ones with a 'nude' panel, as they wouldn't show under light/white coloured tops. Sadly the shipping to get them over here is too much.

I went shopping at the weekend I bought...


 
...having these means I can wear some of my regular tops over the top of these bands, without flashing the flesh!! They're also very comfy, and keep my bump warm!! I also got these...

 
...and I also got a couple of other maternity tops.

On the maternity clothing front, I now have 4 pairs of jeans, a couple of casual hooded tops, a couple of white casual tops, a couple of smart tops, a pair of smart trousers and a maternity tankini. Still not anywhere near a whole wardrobe, and my pile of 'doesn't fit' clothes gets bigger every week, but I'm doing ok!

I have one of those belly bands and I LOVE it! It has helped as I can wear my regular jeans unbottoned. What are "smart tops" and trousers? My pile of "doesn't fit" clothes is ever growing as well! I checked out the Old Navy website and they have some really cute stuff for CHEAP! Especially the cute skirts I am looking forward to wearing when the weather gets warmer.

Smart tops, erm they're just that... tops that are smart. Erm, I think you'd call them shirts, although they don't button up.
Trousers - LOL!! You call them pants, although pants to us are underwear!

Tracey sings... "We say trousers, and you say pants. We say pants, and you say panties (although I detest that word, to me it's a porno word!). Trousers, pants. Pants, panties. Let's call the whole thing off!!!

Susanne just knows what I'm talking about now, and I know what she means. I forget that you are mostly uninitiated to the English language!!

This is an awesome conversation... Tracey, over here "panties" is a very conservative, prude word! We have "shirts" and "button-up shirts", nothing is smart!
 


I'm lost. My belly is getting huge (I know, that's crazy cuz I'm not too far, but I bet I could go toe-to-toe with Tracey in the belly department- or more like bump-to-bump) and yet the fat pants I have are getting looser. I don't get it. My maternity pants drive me crazy and make my stomach hurt, and those are the only two pairs I have! Shirts that fit me a week or two ago can't even be worn now, and I've had to move to those ugly shirts with the strings around back... Sigh. Still waiting for my maternity clothes money... um, I mean, tax money!! BILL paying money!
