So I finally caved and bought a few maternity clothes this weekend. I tried on some of my maternity clothes from last time and the bottoms did not fit at all. (I started this pregnancy about 20 lbs lighter than my pregnancy with DS). So I bought new jeans.


I went with the Demi panel because I didn't think I would want the full panel in the summer. Now I am at working wearing them and it feels like it is digging into my belly. Is this just something I have to get use to? I want to like these because now I cannot return them. Will they fit better (lower maybe?) as I get bigger?

can you just fold the panel down?  You could fold it down and add a bella band on top to smooth it out and help hold them up.

I had that problem develop with my demi panels at around 7 months. It didn't get better, but they were really good for postpartum.

That is EXACTLY why I prefer full panel most of the time!
