It holds the trousers in place and is easy to put on. Super-comfortable, it adapts itself to the growth of the belly until the end of your pregnancy. The high jersey belt is ideal to keep the belly nice and warm. Easily shapeable due to its soft elastic stitch, it can be worn on the stomach or the hips.

The evolutionary system : It’s a narrow piece of fabric that is placed under the belly of the mother to be which allows it to grow in piece throughout the pregnancy. Low waist, the elastic strap is large enough to support your beautiful pregnant curves. This discrete system allows you to wear tight tops or to tuck them in the trousers. It’s the evolutionary system of the famous Italian jeans brand Pietro Brunelli.
