That's great! I know you were looking for some linen pants.

The thing I used was like a fake button with an elastic part. It allowed me to wear my jeans below my belly, without having them fall down. A belly band would have driven me nuts. I suffered from itchy belly syndrome with all of my pregnancies.
Haha, you remembered! I also got these in both black and white. Booo...had to go up a size because they weren't kidding about being slim through the hip and thighs. If they're tight on my hips and chicken thighs, then they're very slim. I like them ok, but I wouldn't wear them with heels as shown--I like them with flat sandals. You can cuff them or tie the strings at the ankle for heels.

I also tried these, but true to VS, they just don't fit well unless you're a 6', 110-lb model and have them all clipped and pinned up in the back for photos.
I like the cargo pant. It looks like it gives the bottom a little lift, because of the pockets. Some might argue that it's wrong trying to fool folks into believing I have a bigger booty than I do, but I think it's a more flattering when I fill out a pair of jeans or pants.

The VS pants are nice too, but not as versatile as the cargo pants you bought.
