I got this while still pregnant & found it too restrictive for my belly. I was carrying twins though & all of my weight was at my belly. I didn't wear it while pregnant. I tried it post partum to help hold my saggy belly in but it didn't offer enough back support or feel snug enough. After the babies were out I could've probably gone a size smaller than I had. Doesn't help that a few days after delivery I lost 34 lbs in water weight! I ended up getting a belly band/back support/ waist trainer that I have been using instead. Little disappointed this product couldn't be used for me.
I bought two different kinds this one an another. This one hands down is way better. It has the support so it NEVER rolls or moves down. I WEAR it all day both problems. I'm 5'9 215. Size 3 I got. Fits great. It is long enough and not too tight but tight enough to get the job done.
I would order a size up from what is suggested. I normally wear a size 6-8 and bought a size 2 when only 4 months pregnant. I felt like I was being suffocated and couldn’t imagine wearing it when I was more pregnant. Got a size bigger and it is much more comfortable. It is nice to wear to extend your pants when you can’t find maternity wear! Also, it helps with support!
I put it on upside down the first time and you can definitely tell the difference. I like this band, it’s not complicated and it’s comfortable. I feel more at ease when I wear it. I was having a lot of soreness from just being up and about throughout the day and wearing this really makes a difference. Plus, I don’t have to worry about showing belly if my clothes come up or whatever hahah.
First of all, I didn't realize I would only get 1 band for the price - I thought it was a 3 pack, my mistake. The band is really a basic piece of fabric, and was smaller than I expected it would be. I would DIY sew a band and not buy this again. Honestly I don't know if I will use this, as it is tight on my only 14 week belly.
This is a decent belly band but I feel like it could fit better. My pants slide way more with this belly band than the one I had for my last pregnancy. It does help with round ligament pain though and I don't just wear these with jeans but also over my leggings to give more support.
Very comfy and light, does not make you hot. However mine did stretch out after the first wash. I bought the size 3 and was a size 16 pre-pregnancy since I am now at the last 3 weeks of pregnancy I do wish it was much tighter. I would recommend a size smaller for the last few months IF you don't have a huge bump like I do. Overall I thought it was great for the price.
The belly band works great, but the extenders don't fit any of my pant buttons. Idk if I'm using it wrong but I have tried on multiple jeans and the hole is not big enough, and I know if I cut it it will prob start ripping. So this product is def best for just the band.
