First, let me ask you this - did you ever wear those belly bands when you were pregnant? I did and LOVED them! They were awesome for keeping my baby belly covered! I only bought one "real" one, it's black and just between you and me - I still wear it all the time! I'm a tall gal and it's tricky to always find tee shirts long enough for my taste. So I use the belly band as kind of a tee shirt extender, if you will. Since I'm a fan of variety, I thought I needed to have a few in different colors, and knew there was a way to get what I wanted without spending the cash.
Since seeing Cheri's I Am Momma, Hear Me Roar post about creating the anti layer tube top, I was inspired to do something similar to make a kind of belly band the same way! I just took old tee's chopped off the bottom half and took in the sides (if needed) to create a little something extra to add to my tee shirts. Now I want to raise my hand to ask a question, or shoot some hoop, my shirt can ride up a bit without my belly being on display. Trust me, you're welcome.
