Ingrid & Isabel founder Ingrid Carney invented her signature Bellaband belly band while pregnant with her daughter (named Isabel, of course!). Carney’s belly had popped overnight, and by the following morning she could no longer button her pants. She created a makeshift band that flattened her waistband while holding up her trousers, and voilà — a successful business was born (Isabel came along a few months later). Aside from belly bands, Ingrid & Isabel also designs ruched tank tops, low-rise leggings and knit “everywhere” pants, modal cami shirts and maxi dresses, and other essential women’s maternity clothing. Based in San Francisco, Ingrid & Isabel has appeared in the pages of People, Fit Pregnancy, and many other household-name publications since its 2003 debut.
