Maternity Belly Band? Really?

A maternity belly band really is absolutely as simple as it seems.
Come on, you wonder, can a maternity belly band seriously, truthfully be just as simple and obvious as it seems? Is it really just a big circle of high-fashion cotton and high-strength elastic? Really? And the it simply holds-up your pants when you no longer can button or fasten them, discreetly covering your slowly expanding mid-section and creating the illusion of a layered-look when your old tops get a little too short and your new maternity tops are too big and too frumpy? That’s what your maternity belly band does, and that’s all that it does? Really? That’s it?

A belly band is perfectly safe and extremely comfortable.
Also known as a bella band, it remains perfectly comfortable throughout your long, hectic workday. Sure, you scoff. Strapping tight elastic around my pregnant belly is going to feel comfortable? Really? And it does not hurt the mom or the baby? It actually adds a little bit of comfort, especially because it makes your clothes fit more comfortably? Really? And the maternity belly band is strong enough to hold-up even your slinky low-cut jeans? Even the low-rise jeans? Really? And a maternity band will stretch to cover …well, you know, that place that low-cut jeans sometimes reveal; even that? Ya think? All day long, snugly and securely, a belly band really holds-up your jeans and discreetly covers? Seriously? No exaggeration?

A bella band is as fashionable as it is practical and comfortable.

How can something so simple be so totally genius? How is it that women waited until the twenty-first century to invent this miracle device? Just cotton and elastic? Really? Just one big tube, designed and built to hold-up your pants and skirts so that you can wring just a little more use from your before pregnancy outfits? That’s it? But , really, are they totally and undeniably cute, or are they kinda prego funky, looking like someone bought up all the old remnants from the fabric store? They are cute; really? So they come in lots of great fashion colors and adorable prints, and they will coordinate with all your favorite tops as if you had layered them over a camisole or tank top? Really?

So, a maternity belly band really does all that? Really? Wow.

Hiring A Really Good Wedding Band.

Article by Billy Chaika

You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for some tips on choosing a live band!

You will need to choose a band which a broad spectrum of people will find appealing and entertaining.

Planning a wedding or other party is a huge undertaking by the organiser. There are so many details to think about and so much work to do.

Of course one of the most important things is the organising of the entertainment. Most people choose to have music at their event.

There are different ways that you can do this but the most popular has to be typically a DJ or a live wedding band.

Live music can really liven up your event, but what sorts of things should you look for in a wedding band?

The first step to choosing a wedding party band that the guests will really enjoy so why not ask some of your guests what type of music they want?

Instead of focusing on the type of music you like, take your guests’ preferences into account and give them what they want.

The next thing that you should do when you are looking for a live band is to try to catch them performing. In general most bands typically have public gigs outside of private events so check with them on these so that you can try to take in a performance.

If you can’t catch them live then ask them if they have a demo CD or preferably a video for you to take a look at. This will give you a good idea of the suitability of the band for your own event.

You will also want to know a few details about the band to gauge their level of professionalism and experience. Find out how long the band has been together.

Most bands have individual and group biographies in their written information or on their website. This will give you an idea of the calibre of the party band as a whole.

The website of the band is probably the best place to get information. You will usually be able to see pictures of the band and perhaps listen to some of their music or watch videos of the band in performance, which should give you a good idea of how competent and professional the band is.

Look at the testimonials of previous clients. This is a great way to find out how popular the band are when they play. You can normally find these on the bands website. While you are there you can also check out the bands repertoire list to check it will be suitable.

Look for a band whose music is going to a lot of different people. If you choose a band who plays for example progressive jazz or heavy rock music it will not appeal to many of the people who are likely to be at your wedding. Look at something like 70′s soul or disco as this music appeals to a greater range of people.

Of course the price the band charge is important. Negotiate a fair price with the band manager. Once it has been agreed get it put down in writing.

You’ll almost certainly need to make a non-refundable deposit in order to hold your date.

Call your band to confirm the details of your event about a week in advance. Among other things, you’ll want to make sure the band’s wardrobe will be appropriate for your event. You’ll also want to let them know when they can arrive at the site of your event so they’re able to set up their equipment.

Remember that the band is likely to have travelled a long distance to play for your party, so it is only polite on your side to provide them with meals.

Finally ensure they have a written timetable of events so they know exactly when they are expected to perform.
