Hi, My wife is 20 weeks pregnant and she is looking for an expandable button for her trousers? A girl at work told her about it. MotherCare didn't have it. Does anyone know if such a thing exists and where she might get it. Best of luck to all mothers to be and ahem (fathers to be). B

Havent come across expandable button but you can get Ballet belts in mothercare/topshop/h&m that you put on over waist and it means you can leave button open! Any help?

You used to be able to get these in the pregnancy shop on Dawson St. but I went down there last Thursday to get some for myself to find it had closed down ! Assuming we're thinking about the same thing they are elasticated patches of material with a button on one end and a hole on the other end which you put between your open trouser top to shield the bump and keep the trousers up. A few people I know swore by them. If anyone else knows where you can get them I'd really love to know !

I bought mine in the pregnancy store and subsequently found out that Elora Maternity do them also and were much cheaper €22 - they also do the bando bands which I use with the belt to cover it up. I've found this great for wearing non-maternity work suits.
