    I loved my belly band, including after pregnancy. Meant I only needed new regular jeans later in pregnancy when my thighs started to get a bit pregnant too.

    OHhhhhhh, there is a brand of Maternity Jeans that I just can't think of the name of, I had an operation this morning, that is my excuse. I wore them through 2 out of 5 pregnancies and LOVED THEM. Biscotti I think it was recommended me. They are around $200 new but I go a near new pair from ebay for like $50. Argh, I can't think of them name, I keep thinking Yingfa but that is a brand of swimming goggles.

    They are a really trendy but and sit under the belly with no daggy stretchy bit, they have those adjustable buttons and elastic on the inside like kids pants.

    Anyway, there is no point in me banging on about them if I can't think of the blardy name!

    Those jeans, long stretchy singlets and maxi dresses got me through 2 pregnancies. I felt too daggy having something cover my bump but I have issues haha.

    Good luck!

    I tried the belly belt, but didn't like it with my normal jeans as I felt like they were falling down at the back. I did by a pair of mat jeans but have basically lived in tights this entire pregnancy!

    Target have some really nice linen shorts at the moment for $35 with an elastic section at the back. They look really nice and sit comfortably under a 30 week bump. They're in the ladies section, not the maternity section if you're interested in something other than dresses?

    Just Jeans maternity jeans are super comfy - they sit below the belly and are true to size.

    Kmart tights they have maternity ones for 9 dollars I live in them also there mat Tshirts are good too as well as big w ones. You may have to try a few stores to find your sizes as I did but it's worth it they are cheap and not bad quality I bought a few different colours and some long and some short sleeve ones.

    I bought a pair of skinny leg maternity jeans from Big W for $25. They've been great. They go over the belly. They do sag a little in the crotch at the front but I mostly wear longish tops anyway so you can't notice. Now you can't see under my belly as I'm about to pop! Super comfy and stretchy.

    I had a pair of target ones last time and they fell down and weren't comfy on my lower belly.

    I prefer my belly band with my regular jeans. Hot tip: use a hair elastic threaded through the button hole and then hooked on the button to keep the top of your half open jeans from folding over.

    Now that I am much bigger (33wks) I bought a pair of maternity jeans but to be honest at this stage I am living in leggings and long shirts or dresses because I kind of hate things around my waist!
