Giveaway: Pocket Dots – They Grip So Pants Don’t Slip!By Jen E @ mommablogsalot | June 24th, 2009 | Category: Featured Reviews, Giveaways, Reviews & Giveaways, clothes shoes & accessories, pregnancy & babies | 9 comments
I’m getting to that point in my pregnancy – even my longest of maternity shirts are no match for my bulging expectant belly and I find myself constantly pulling my shirts down. Another strange phenomenon? As my belly gets larger, the rest of me seems to be getting smaller. I know, to have such problems. But that means my pants are getting bigger – and constantly slouching down, which doesn’t help with the shirts that are rising up. It makes for a lot pulling up and pulling down and wishing my clothes would just stay in place!
Enter Pocket Dots, whose catchy slogan, “They b50 grip so pants don’t slip!” really does say it all. Designed for anyone, pregnant or otherwise (seriously even when I wasn’t pregnant I think I was having the same slippage problem – anyone else?), by fellow mother, Annie, whose been there, done that, AND come up with a brilliant solution. They are kind of like suspenders without the big strap – you just take one end and clip it to your back pocket, then take the other end and clip it to your shirt, camisole, undershirt or belly band. Now you are good to go!
I’ve tried my Pocket Dots a couple of times and they really do work – there was no more tugging and pulling – and it got me to thinking – if you can use them on the back pocket, why not the front pocket, too? And guess what? It worked. So whether you are having problems in the front or back, Pocket Dots will have you covered, literally.
My only real complaint is a minor one that is more funny than problematic – bathroom breaks (something that happens a lot being pregnant). The Dots are so effective that I literally forget I’m wearing them until I go to the ladies room and find that I cannot pull my pants down! That shows you how strong they are! I’m willing to bet most women have a memory bank large enough to remind themselves to un-clip before they unzip, but this is me – the woman who has to walk back to the car several times just to make sure it’s really locked. So if you are memory impaired like myself, I suppose that’s something to keep in mind – not that it’s stopped me from wearing them!
