So what does the fashion-conscious woman do when she can no longer close her pants due to her burgeoning bump? Why, create the infamous BellaBand and whole range of maternity basics, of course! Such is the case of Ingrid Carney who invented the genius, miracle worker, can’t-live-without BellaBand (if you’re preggo and don’t have AT LEAST one of these elastic waistbands, you’re crazy, um.. hello!? this is a maternity MUST HAVE!). But while you’re over there shopping, take a look at Ingrid & Isabel‘s new Spring 2012 line comprised of everyday pieces in silk modal blend with smart detailing such as tucking and draping to hug your bump in all the right places thanks to a bit of spandex here and there. A line that’s as much comfy as it is stylish… just what the doctor ordered!
