I was lucky enough to bump into Jordan from Portmans while I was looking for ‘stretchy’ summer alternatives, unbenownest to her I was also smuggling a seriously uncomfortable muffin-top under a long flowy sweater. It turned out that she too was pregnant and let me in on her secret for extending the life of your jeans
A hair tie or thick elastic
Your fave jeans
A long top
This is when you’ve established that you can no longer do up your jeans in a way that is comfortable or flattering
Take your hair tie and thread one end through the button hole on your jeans
If you can do up your zip that helps, but regardless take both ends of the hair tie and latch them on to the button and boom jeans that fit and no muffin-top.
I should also note that you’ll want to wear a top that falls below your zip or you could be giving the game away and just a tad embarassed!
