Pin It With my ever expanding waistline, I've been considering getting a bella band since I've heard such great things. However, I found a great tutorial on Make it and Love it on how to make your own maternity band. I made one for myself and will definitely by making some more. When I make my next one, I'm going to make it longer than her dimensions and also not as wide. Every body is different so you can measure and see what will work for you.
