Curating a Bump-Friendly Closet: The Home Stretch

You’ve got your eyes on the prize and a belly that just won’t quit, aka it’s harder than ever to comfortably dress. What you could probably use now is a few reliable pieces that will grow the distance with you, some activewear with extra support, and a leg up on a few essentials that will usher you into the fourth trimester, breastfeeding and all. We’ve rounded up some of our faves to see you through this journey with style.

Ingrid & Isabel was born when its founder, Ingrid, was newly pregnant with her daughter Isabel and could no longer button her pre-pregnancy bottoms. She fashioned the first prototype of the Bellaband and spent three years perfecting the design before it hit shelves in 2003. To this day, every piece we make, we design with, on, and for moms.
