Listen....I don't know why I put myself through so much suffering for months with back pain, but I have seen the light. I am 8 months pregnant and have HORRIBLE back pain in my lower and upper back. My mom suggested I buy belly support belt as I am always in the kitchen, on the go and have a toddler to chase after so lets say back pain is HIGHLY inconvenient for me.
This belt really really makes a huge difference. Even wearing it while sitting at my desk working helps my back. You do have to pull it a bit tight, but it's never uncomfortable or restricting. I highly recommend to pregnant women. Take care of your back while you can because the pain will only get worse. This provides great support and lift to your belly.
I purchased this belt for my sister who is now entering her third trimester. She works on her feet all day at a day care center, and her back has been in constant discomfort. After the first few days of wearing this belt, there hasn’t been a hint of pain. This product has been a life saver! Gracias nu moms!
I wish I would have bought this earlier.... I am 35 weeks and the pelvic pain started becoming so persistent I bought this belt and immediately felt a difference. I ended up buying a second one because I was worried it would be too stretched out wearing it every day. I agree with the reviews that it's hard to put on so I turn it to the side, velcro it, and then flip it back around on my body. The tricky part is going from sitting to standing. When I'm standing and doing things around the house I want a firm hold but when I sit it becomes too tight and I have to loosen it. I also wore it working out and felt a big difference. I haven't worn it directly on my skin but rather over leggings or tights.
I purchased this because my tummy is getting heavier and would get sharp pain under my baby bump. Plus I traveled some and knew I would need the extra support. This was amazing! I felt secure and didn’t have sharp pain at all. I feel like it held baby too. I was 25 weeks when I wore it traveling and noticed a difference when I took it off. Sleeping with it helps too! It’s soft but a little annoying getting it on so I wear a tank under then wear my undies and pull the top of them over just enough so I won’t have to take everything off when going to the bathroom. I recommend this!
Wow. This band is amazing!! My wife can finally function as if she was 3 months pregnant again! This band has given her so much support for her lower back. She does EVERYTHING with this band now and doesn’t take it off ever. Thank you for such a great product!!!
The band works well for me for support and comfort. WAY better than two other popular styles of bands that I've tried. The problem is that I am plus size, largely so, and I have an apron belly. Bands that I've tried or viewed just don't support a plus size belly or don't fit. My only complaint with this one is that I am only 23 weeks and have a ways to go, but I can BARELY get the sides to overlap and velcro together. For now, if I just pull the back of the band higher towards my waist, I can get it latched together. As I get larger, I won't be able to, but I have my own fix I'm going to do because this is honestly the best belly band I've found for a plus size apron belly I have been able to find! So, plus size mamas, I love it, you'll probably love it, but you may have to get a panel of fabric that sticks to velcro, then add velcro to the opposite side, to make up the size difference. It's a pain to do, but SO worth it to me to have a band that actually supports and fits my belly, and I don't have to constantly adjust it every time I go from sitting to standing or vice versa. For reference, I am 5'4" and 290, so I'm a big girl!
I ordered this after back pain in my 3rd trimester was keeping me from being able to keep up with my two toddlers. I had 5-6/10 pain all the time and it would shoot down my leg and be an 8/10 at times, within 30 seconds of putting it on I felt relief, about 1/10 pain. The next time I put it on it didn’t help and I had to adjust the position of it, but after a few times I got the hang of it. So much better!!!!
Side note, I am about 5’7” and 240lbs, this fits with no issues! I was worried about it fitting around my large pregnant belly!
It's fine. I bought a second one to compare from AZMed. This one has longer bands, so it's easier to get on. I am not a skinny person, so the extra length is helpful, expecially with a growing belly. I wish it had more support or held its support longer. It seems to stretch out too easily. I am returning this and keeping my other one.
It is comfortable to wear, but I have to say that it did not provide me with the relief that I needed. I am 30 weeks pregnant, the baby is, and has been sitting extremely low the entire pregnancy, I have an enormous amount of pressure in my pelvic area and my back. I really had high hopes for this.
It did not lift my belly whatsoever, nor did it take any pressure off of my back. However, having the snug fit around my lower belly going up around my back felt somewhat nice, I ended up having to make another purchase for another belly/back support band.
It provides great support for the lower back while having to stand and do chores around the house.
Once it’s off, the pain comes back after a while
I’m 31 weeks pregnant and I notice the belly band slips some up my stomach. I don’t know if it’s because my belly isn’t big enough for it to fully fit me properly. It’s a quick fix though, I just readjust as needed
