I have one pair and the jury is still out. I love the look and feel of them and the size is right but I feel like I am always pulling them up. I wear them with a bella band and then I wonder...why didn't I just buy a full panel. Maybe as my belly grows they'll fit better?

I didn't wear any real waist with my other pregnancies....does anyone else have any experiences with them?

I hate the full panel. I have one pair that I think I wore once, and rolled it down. I only like the low ones. There is mid-belly and there is under belly. I think the mid-belly always just falls down and is annoying. I like the under belly style. Love them. But I always wear my pants really low, pregnant or not.

I have some non-maternity low-rise pants that fit exactly like my expensive momzee real waist maternity pants. I actually like them quite a bit. But, what I'm still finding most comfortable is my regular pants with a bella band.

I don't like low-rise elastic band pants, I'm always having to pull these up. As much as I hate the full panel mat pants, they're really the ones that stay put best.
