Belly Support Tank. $68.
The Maternity Underbust High-Performance Belly Support Tank has built-in belly and back support and is made of breathable high-performance fabric that keeps moisture at bay. The tank is the answer to bulky support belts and flimsy belly bands. While the tank comes in at $68.00, it works overtime. It alleviates pressure, smoothes hips, back and sides for a secure fit, and lifts the belly to improve posture. It also won’t fade and dull with wash and wear.
The special under-bust design means you can wear your best fitting bra during every trimeser. It holds up unbuttoned bottoms so you can wear your pre-pregnancy clothes and allow you to secure loose maternity bottoms that you haven’t grown into yet. Find it at: http://www.blanqi.com
Porn for New Moms. $10.
The tongue and cheek Cambridge Women’s Pornography Cooperative have put together this funny collection of hunky guys doing exactly what new mothers want. The women have captured a world where men insist on changing diapers, get up for 3am feeds and where they just can’t help but admire mom’s sexy all-sweatpants wardrobe.
