Maternity Accessories That Secure Your Pregnant Jiggly Bits


Maternity Accessories That Secure Your Pregnant Jiggly Bits

The Laughing Stork is a family/pregnancy/parenting site of sorts — albeit a fairly crass one — so it’s no surprise I’ve started getting inundated with pitches from publicists hoping I’ll endorse their products.  I worked in PR several lifetimes ago, so I’m no stranger to this process. There are some “mommy blogs” out there that exist solely to enjoy a windfall of free goodies in exchange for writing glowing reviews.  Which is great for them.   Win/win.  I, however, cannot live on baby lotion samples alone.  I launched this site with three goals in mind:  1)  Entertain readers with my silly stories and, hopefully, give them a few chuckles along the way; 2)  Build a community where readers feel comfortable sharing their own silly stories; and 3)  Earn an actual living from all of this fun.  And I believe the only way I can accomplish that is if I invest in readers’ trust, rather than sell out for free laundry detergent.

With that said, I will receive some cool stuff that’s worth letting you know about.  Such as these BellaBand maternity accessories by Ingrid & Isabel:


I only wish I’d gotten the Everyday Maternity BellaBand (that band underneath my tank top, holding up my jeans) sooner in my pregnancy because I’ve had a hell of a time with maternity jeans.  “THESE jeans are too big!”  “THESE jeans are too saggy around my flat ass!”  With the supportive help of the BellaBand around the waistband, however, I sighed, “Ahhhh…THESE jeans are just right.”

Just call me Knocked Up Goldilocks.

The Ruched Tank, which does a flattering job of securing all of my jiggly pregnant bits, is not something I would ever personally wear on its own — but would be great for layering with a jacket, sweater or, of course, Baby Mama Poncho.

Some baby bump, huh?  Now if only a company would send me some junk for my trunk.  Then I could balance myself out a bit and stop bumping into walls like a Weeble Wobble.

A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
