You knew your belly would swell, but what you didn’t realize was how big. So much for those maternity jeans making it through all nine months.
Before you get all bent out of shape (that is, if you can still bend), there’s hope — the Hope maternity jean from Salsa Fits My Life.
The Hope uses a detachable waistband to create a versatile fashion statement that can be worn pre-, during, and postpregnancy. As your bump begins to expand, simply zip off the denim waistband and replace it with an elastic belly band. Afterward, when your junk up front begins to retreat, the denim waistband goes back where it started. Which is more than can be said for the rest of your jiggly bits.
Salsa Fits My Life, 8013 Melrose Avenue, between North Laurel and North Edinburgh Avenues (323-951-0980), $129. To see styles, go to salsajeans.com.
Nobody else really wants to hear about how you solved Junior’s sleep issues.
