Ingrid & Isabel
For mommies-to-be and new moms I found a great maternity line that offers basics that can be worn during the entire pregnancy and post-partum stages. I’ve had the opportunity to wear the products in the Ingrid & Isabel maternity line and I must say they are definitely comfortable, non-restrictive, flatter the body and are pieces that I can mix and match within my wardrobe.
Ingrid & Isabel, named after mom Ingrid and daughter Isabel, was developed while Ingrid was carrying Isabel and wanted to wear pants that still fit but was unable to button. So, she created the BellaBand a band of nylon/spandex that wraps around your belly and covers the zippers that are unable to zip and the buttons that are unable to button. It gives the illusion that you are wearing a white cami underneath your top. It does not cling tightly to the body but it does hug, which gives you a flatter and smooth appearance. The BellaBand is also offered in organic cotton that feels amazing against your skin.
Within the Ingrid & Isabel maternity line is the Essesentials Collection, that consist of a ruched tank, everyday cami, belly leggings, and everywear pant. Each piece in this particular collection is made of stretchable, breathable fabric that again hugs and flatters your body which allows you to look beautiful in your clothes. The sizing (a true fit) comes in ranges of 1-4 and you match your pre-pregnancy pant/top size to the grid they have displayed on the site to find your size.
