(AD | GIFTED) I was lucky enough to partner and collaborate with Belly Bandit UK and I was gifted a few amazing items. Belly Bandit is known for their “body after baby” items both for new and expecting mums. They produce products such as belly wraps, nursing bras, nursing tanks, compression leggings, bump support leggings and more…the list can literally go on and on.
Belly Bandit uses proprietary fabrics to differentiate from all other maternity and shapewear companies. The fabric is great at keeping all those lotions and stretch mark creams off your clothes and only on your skin, ensuring full effect is given.

My Belly Bandit UK Collaboration
Bump Support Leggings
The first item I was gifted was the BELLY BANDIT® Bump Support™ Leggings (US link) to try out during the last few months of my pregnancy and I must say I was impressed. In my first pregnancy I didn’t hear about Belly Bandit unfortunately so I missed out the first time around but this time I was on point and wanted to try these out. The material is very spandex-y, supportive and comfortable. Feels like you aren’t wearing anything. Crazy but amazing.
I was impressed from the outset and as I am more about comfort I tend to wear leggings more than anything and these were my go-to for most of my outfits. Paired with tunic tops, long sweaters or cardigans, these leggings were my favourite for comfort, style and most importantly support. I would definitely recommend purchasing a pair if you are looking for a pair of leggings to add to your maternity wardrobe. I think these could be styled quite well for the office, with long boots, a tunic white shirt, and blazer. That’s what I love about these leggings – they are versatile and can be dressed up or down!!

Another amazing gift from Belly Bandit was my unbelievably soft and supportive Belly Bandit Mother Tucker® Moto Leggings (US link). They are so luxuriously soft, comfortable and very supportive, sucking everything in. As an added bonus they make my butt look very nice, even after 2 babies. These particular leggings come up as high-waisted but it’s all done in the name of belly and waist compression!! Belly Bandit continues to amaze me with their products. The Mother Tuckin leggings are a great wardrobe essential for new mums as it shapes and supports you from the waist down. It is said to smooth your tummy and thighs and lifting the butt – which I agree with 100%.

The latest addition to my Belly Bandit Collaboration was the Bandita Nursing Bra (US link). I really liked this bra as it is so soft and comfortable. It’s very easy to use when you are in the dark, unbelievably tired and trying to breastfeed half asleep. The clasp is easy to unbutton with one hand (whilst trying to hold the baby with the other). All you nursing mummas know how important this feature really is. It comes padded (removable) so that your nursing pads are not showing through. This has happened to me a few times and you can see the nursing pads through your bra and top (#thehorror)!
