If you would like more support in your pregnancy jeans, you can add an elastic holding inside the belt. For it :

  • Pick up a fairly wide flat elastic piece (minimum 2 cm) and flexible.
  • The elastic should measure the width of your belt × 0.9. For example, if the width of your waist is 80 cm, your elastic measuring 80 × 0.9 = 72 cm.
  • Before fold or sew the belt, when the fabric is flat:
  • Draw a line in the middle of the fabric in width.
  • Pin your elastic below this line, stretching the elastic to fit the width of the belt.
  • Put a stretch jersey or special special needle on your sewing machine.
  • Set the sewing machine on a zigzag stitch.
  • Sew a zigzag stitch on top of the elastic, then down.
