A go-to pant for mamas

Navel pants — created by Sarah Longacre, the beloved founder of Blooma (a local yoga studio and haven for mamas and mamas-to-be) — are on sale now online.

After making an early debut at Bellyrama at Lake Harriet this past September, the high-rise comfy pants, which include a removable 9-inch belly band, cost $70 (20 percent off if you sign up for e-updates). So far, they’re getting rave reviews. 

Our Minnesota Parent tester bought a pair and loved the fit and feel of the pants, which delivered “all the good parts of Spanx, but without making you feel like you can’t breathe.” 

She added: “They’re thick enough to hold everything in, but you don’t overheat. The high-rise is the perfect height to make me feel sleek and ‘pulled together’ in my mama-bod. I basically live in them — only parting with them long enough to be washed, which, if I’m being honest, is after at least three wears. No shame here. They go with everything — work, workout, date night, errands, lounge, you name it.” 

You can try on a sample at Blooma’s Minneapolis location.
