To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Impressed! I've had these bands a couple months now and they've held up so well thus far. I had previously bought one from Wal-Mart and within days it began to unravel. The elasticity has maintained its integrity even through multiple washes. I expected for the rubber band around the seam to crack and rip, but not so far! I do however make it a point not to dry the band's except for air dry and I wear them a few days before I feel the need to wash them. Worth the price point for such quality! The only flaw so far is the seamless tag has disappeared in both bands but they aren't neccessary IMHO.
I bought these bands and had a local tailor cut off the top of my cargo pants (work uniform) to the pocket line, and sew the bands onto the top of the pants. I've been using them all the way through the 3rd trimester and they've worked great. I don't think my pants would've stayed up had I bought them in 2nd trimester though, haha. The pants extenders are cool, but walking around with my pants unzipped is never very comfortable. You'd need a seriously long shirt to hide that 100% of the time.
I am very petite and XS pregnancy pants usually don't fit me till I am at least 6 months pregnant, I am having an early delivery due to a high risk pregnancy so I didn't see the point in buying expensive jeans to be used for less than two months. I bought this hoping it would be my solution and I am super pleased with this purchase. It fits well and comfortable and the quality of the band is nice and soft. Doesn't ride up or bunch up.
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.
This product is great! I love it. I am 19 weeks and I have yet to buy maternity jeans. The extender is a great money saver and you still get to wear your favorite jeans. Many reviews so just do it, unbutton and unzip. I will second that. Unzip unbutton and relax. The belly band will cover the zipper and button. I read in a review to wear it upside down so the tacky side is up and able to stay up on skin. It does not irritate or other me at all. I think it's great and a staple to any pregnancy/maternity wear.
I absolutely love this belly band! I purchased one during my first trimester so that i could feel held in as baby started growing. It does stretch out kind of fast but after washing it, it shrinks again to a good size. I sweat a lot at work and i think that factors into why it has stretched out a little. I ended up buying the same size for my second trimester and i still love it!
Absolutely love this! Smoothies & rounds out my 2nd trimester bump. The only thing I suggest is maybe buying 2 sizes for when your bump grows. Mine fit great when i was 4-5 mos but the bigger i get, i think I may need to go up one size. I wore this on Mother’s Day @6mos pregnant & noticed i had A lot of indigestion when i ate or drank. Pretty sure it was just a little too tight. But overall the product itself is GREAT!!!! Definitely recommend it
I am a big gal & wear these to keep everything smooth & not have a belly button peeker when I reach up if my shirt is shorter. I don't like the pressure of girdles, so this is perfect. I did order a size too big though, so next one will be ordering size 3 (I am 2x-3x pant size @ 300 lbs for those judging size). But the size 4 will be perfect when hubs & I need them for the intended purpose, hahaa
Love these bands! I'm 22 weeks pregnant and haven't gained much weight anywhere else other than my stomach area, so I'm not ready to give up my jeans, however, I can't button them! These have been great so I can still wear my jeans and also smooth out the stomach area.
I got this belly band more for covering up my belly and creating a smoother look under work clothing. I did not get it for any pain, so I can't say how it may help others in that area. I wear it basically anytime I leave the house. I forget I have it on because it is very comfortable. It definitely supports my belly and helps to smooth out any bumps that might otherwise show through clothing. If I weren't now working from home, I would order another.
