This photo was a request - and it was also one of the very first community tips I received during my first pregnancy.

Hope you find it helpful!

Best wishes,

Love the hair tie trick! Although I only ever looped it through the button hole and never the zipper. I'm gonna try it this way now! Lol.

Lol! I've been doin this for about 3 weeks now... Just with the button, not the zipper. It really helps when you are sitting for long periods if time! ☺
