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 thought this band would never fit. It looked tiny and I firstly struggled to put it on (painful breasts). I love it now and couldn't do without. It provides a very good support and is very comfortable. So good that you forget you are wearing it. It is quite long but I am quite short. I like that so it covers the bottom of my back and provides support there too. Great for wearing over now too small trousers without anybody noticing. I would recommend it.
I've used this throughout my 4th pregnancy, and have tried several other types - this being my favorite. I'm a nurse and use this during my 12 hour shifts at the hospital. It's very comfortable standing or sitting (much more so than any other I've had) provides good support and helped with my back and hip pain. Only problem is it gets a bit stretched out by the end of the day and needs to be washed between each wear to tighten back up in order to provide enough support.
This saved my life through pregnancy! It is so comfortable, thin but still offers great support! I originally bought it as soon as I started showing since I wasn't used the soft, squishy stomach I could no longer suck in. It made me feel so much more secure and supported. On days I didn't wear it, I started to notice much more back pain, especially if I were about and about. I also love the fit, again very thin but offers support in all the right areas. The part that actually goes over your belly is so comfortable and stretch and the part around your back offers great compression to help suck everything in. I never experienced any rolling down or riding up, the fit was great! I even bought one as a gift for a friend!
For reference, I'm 5'3 and about 160 prepregnancy. The medium fit perfect!
I’m a size 14 prior to pregnancy but I’m 30 weeks pregnant now, 5’6 and about 225 lbs. I ordered a medium for now and after pregnancy but may need to order a large in a few weeks. It really does help with rounding out your belly when you had a belly prior to pregnancy. It’s also pretty comfortable. A bit tight at first and rolls down easily while sitting, bending, etc but nothing that you can’t handle.
Just be aware of sizing when you order. The medium says 6-10 but it’s more like 10-14 I’d say. Although I planned for this because of the reviews.
Este producto lo compraría todas las veces que sea necesario este embarazada, para mi fue indispensable durante todo el embarazo sobre todo en los últimos meses, esta faja permite que no tengas molestia en la parte inferior de la barriga porque te ayuda a distribuir mejor el peso de la misma, me ayuda tener una mejor postura lo que me previno de muchos dolores de espalda , Ponérmela en las mañanas era sentir el cambio de inmediato, además el material no incomoda y tiene el ajuste perfecto para atarse a su cuerpo
This band is amazing. I got a size smaller than I expected I would need because other reviews said it can stretch out and lose elasticity over time and that was a good decision. It fits perfectly and I love to wear it. It keeps me together and gives much needed support to my growing belly. I'm now 19 weeks and had it for about a month. The elastic is still very strong and I'm hoping I'll be able to use it for the rest of the pregnancy. If I outgrow this one, I'll make sure to order a larger one.
I love these! I got them to hold up my non maternity shorts as I prefer mens shorts and of course you can't find those in maternity clothing. When I first opened them I thought they seemed very small and I would have to return them, but I tried one on and it fits perfectly. They don't ride up or down, and I am 7 months pregnant with a short torso and back side that is trying to keep up with the belly! I would highly recommend this belly band! As far as support goes, I feel like it does help a bit. As much as you can expect from a band like this.
I love that it rounds out my stomach. Not all pregnant women have the perfect shaped tummy and this does the trick. If that’s what you’re looking for solely, it is a 5 star product. The reason I didn’t give it the full 5 is because I need it more for core support. While it does the job, it definitely could be more supportive. I have 2 other kids I chase around as well as working full time, so I’m constantly on the move. The elasticity wears out easy so I find myself having to throw it in the dryer just to fix it if I want to wear it daily.
I am 5'6" and currently 7 month pregnant. Pre pregnancy I weighed 134lbs and would wear a size 6-8, currently I weigh 160lbs. I got a size medium when I was 3 month pregnant and that thing has been way too tight since I got it. I cannot comfortably wear it for more than a couple hours at a time and wearing it during/after a meal is impossible. If I got it again I would def go at least a size or two up, but honestly I wouldn't buy it again.
