I recently bought myself some new trousers and I did something very naughty…I bought trousers that were already too small! I’ve found that the maternity clothes I have bought so far are just that wee bit frumpy so when these trousers looked good on my bum, I didn’t want them any bigger.
To make them fit around the belly, what I’ve done is a little trick that my friend, Alex’s, sister-in-law taught her, that is to use an elastic band:
- Hoop one end of the elastic band over the button;
- Feed the band through the button hole; and,
- Then hoop the other end of the band over the button again!
You just need to wear a longer top. Ha!
So that’s what I’ve done with these babies today…granted they aren’t the most comfy things to sit in and you can’t need the loo in a hurry but they look good and I don’t feel too fat and frumpy!

There you have it, a little bit of bump, minus the frump! xx
