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.
These bands just didn't work for me (I'm 24 weeks pregnant). I'm a pre-pregnancy size 12, and started with these bands in a size large. I thought they were very tight, but figured they may offer more support that way. I wore one to work (I work seated at a desk), and it rolled up my back immediately. I spent all day tugging at it and unrolling it when I stood up from my desk. Incredibly frustrating and uncomfortable. I had a black one and a gray one, and traded them in for size XL. Same problem. They were a nice snug fit, but rolled up around my waist ALL. DAY. LONG. Needless to say, they are being returned and I will be looking for a different brand.
Stretchy material but provided no support - just felt like I was wearing a weird cami. Also, if you're tall, this is not enough material for your belly and torso and certainly not long enough to pull over your hips! I tried this product on at around 16 weeks and I'm 5'8" and could't imagine it working throughout my entire pregnancy. Sent it back.
Listen to reviews, definitely runs large. I like how it helps to smooth, but it does not give much support I am almost 6 months Ling, so maybe it will fit more snuggly and help with pain when I get a little larger.
I like Belevation underwear a great deal, but I didn't find this belly band to have any support at all. It's basically like wearing a stretchy tank top. I used this to make shirts look longer, but didn't find much other use for it.
I got this in my first few weeks of pregnancy so that I can still wear my regular pants but unbuttoned... It is so tight that I feel like I'm getting sick to my stomach (and not from morning sickness). I don't know how this will be able to stretch enough to fit a pregnant belly....
