NEED IMMEDIATE ADVICE!!! How to hide baby bump under clothes....while modeling?!

Hi ladies! I have a situation that is a bit unusual.... I am about 16 weeks pregnant and only JUST started to show. I was still submitting headshots (I do modeling, but not consistently, because I'm short and only good for promotional events and girl next door gigs, but anyway....) back in December when we didn't know we had just conceived a few weeks prior. I was called yesterday and could REALLY use the money! The thing is....the agency doesn't ask questions about if I'm pregnant or not and in reality, I'm only showing just a little.

Tomorrow I have a gig I'm supposed to attend and need to wear a T-shirt they're providing as a sporting event model, not a bathing suit or anything. But I'm so worried I will show. If I do well at this gig tomorrow, it means gigs until the end of April consistently and the possibility of a new car to use for 4 months because I have to "be the brand."

Anyway....for tomorrow, I can get away with them not knowing just so I can get the job (which doesn't DEFINITELY land me more gigs as a guarantee) but want to know tips and tricks to conceal the bump. But how soon would you tell them about being pregnant and starting to show? After they like you as a model with the remote chance that they will let you keep working for a while?

Just a thought but have you tried the bella band? It basically offers support to your belly as it grows and helps you to still wear your regular clothes until your bump gets bigger. It's like an extension of your shirt and allows you to wear your pants/shorts without having to zip/button them.
