Curating a Bump-Friendly Closet: The Crossover Panel®

Every mama has a secret style weapon (or two) in her maternity wardrobe.

Our Crossover Panel® may just be yours. This panel is perfection thanks to all the women at various stages of pregnancy who helped us test it—now this patented technology is just right. Anchored at your lower back (with a deep V so you don’t get hot and sweaty), it gets more supportive the bigger your belly gets, while always being gentle and comfortable. And you can always choose to wear it folded down, if you’re in the early stages of pregnancy or during the first couple months post-baby. Once you go Crossover Panel®, you might not go back, so we’ve picked a handful of our favorite pieces that will give you that sweet Crossover Panel® support no matter what you’re doing.
