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.
I bought this belly band for one specific reason— I wear scrubs to work and I didn’t want to waste money on maternity pants, but my scrubs are draw string and have no stretch. I’m 25 weeks pregnant with my second child and quickly needed to figure something out. These bands work perfect for holding up my scrubs at work without having to tie them and still are super comfortable! They don’t provide really much support and I actually wear another Velcro belly band over it some days on long shifts, but I bought them with the intention of just holding my scrubs up and it’s perfect for that. It does not slip or ride up and my top covers it perfect. I did order a small (I’m 5’10” and pregnancy weight of 180) and it fits just fine so I would likely size down.
I was really nervous to purchase this product after reading some of the reviews, however, a few of my co-workers had recommended similar products so I went ahead and ordered anyway. I have to say they’ve been a lifesaver. I can now continue to wear my old jeans without being uncomfortable. Size wise, I wore 4-6 jeans prior to this pregnancy. At 4 1/2 months pregnant, the size large fits me perfectly. I would buy again.
Been having horrible lower back and lower stomach pain, this helped so much! Also has a sticky line across the top that helps to hold in place. 5’4”, now 150 and bought a small, definitely has room to grow as I get bigger but not so much that is isn’t helpful now.
These are perfect for wearing over pants that you're trying to use the rubberband trick to make them last longer... it smooths out clothing lines and the sort to make a rounder bump. I have not had any issues with the top or bottom rolling up or down.
not what i expected when i first purchased it being way too stretchy. never got around to sending it back and now well into my third trimester i HAVE to wear it with my dresses. it gives the right amount of belly support and smooths out the back fat. other shapers dont go up high enough and end up cutting right wear i need some smoothing out.
I love the choice of colors in this 3-pack. Especially the grey, for those days when black is too dark and white shines through! MATERIAL-feels great and not at all itchy against bare skin (in case you dont want extra layers.) The size seems to be a true fit.
I wear scrubs everyday for work and I've gotten to the point in my pregnancy where my normal scrub pants are becoming uncomfortable and have a tendency to roll/slide down and either cut into my lower abdomen and hips or almost fall down. I've gotten a couple pair of maternity scrub pants, but have days where I need to make my standard scrubs work. I researched a few options and decided to purchase this belly sleeve/band. It creates just the right amount of compression to provide support for my back and baby belly, and it creates a nice smooth surface so my pants fit much more comfortably and reduce that "cutting in" feeling. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars is because the sleeve is a bit long, the lower grippy edge rides below my hips which can be somewhat uncomfortable when sitting. I'm 5'4" and do have a shorter torso, so it would likely sit well on someone with a longer waist.
I see all the great reviews and wonder if I did something wrong...I bought these for when I was "too small" for maternity pants but too bloated to button my normal jeans! These did the job of allowing me to wear my normal pants for much longer, but every time I moved around or got out of the car these would ride up and my pants would sag down. Then I had a super awkward gap and had to fix it quick which was so inconvenient when I was carrying things or doing errands. Never tried them at work due to COVID 19 closures but I would not have any confidence in them being good for all day. I tried them with grip up below my ribs as well as down around my pants and had the same problems regardless. I didn't return them though because they did help a lot when I had nothing else in the in-between phase.
I ordered based on the sizing chart but these are too big so they don't provide any support. I'm 28 weeks and ordered a large. I'm hoping they'll work later on but I really was looking for some tummy support for now and hoped these would be good for post partum too- I'll be having a c section (3rd one). I know they'll be way to big after baby is born :/ Order a size down. These have tons of stretch to them. they are really soft though.
