DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT IF YOU HAVE PEDUNCULATED FIBROIDS. I was hospitalized after wearing this band for 3 hours with severe fibroid pain. I've never had pain before. It wasn't until wearing this product that they became disturbed and inflamed. As a result I'm on bedrest and in constant pain. Please beware
Not suitable for plus size women. I didn’t gain much belly or weight during pregnancy mainly because I had morning sickness for the whole 9 months and it still was uncomfortable to use or wear. I’m sure this was made for the thin mommies to be also the band is not as thick as shown in pictures
Product that left me with stretch marks. I bought this back in April and only used it once, a couple weeks before my due date. My entire pregnancy up until the day I wore this product, I had no stretch marks on my stomach anywhere. After wearing the item for a few hours, then taking it off, my stomach really hurt. I woke up the next morning to stretch marks below my belly button all around where the maternity belt was. I wouldn’t have blamed it on this if I already had some stretch marks forming prior or if I had them elsewhere but I know this truly ruined my stomach. And because I bought it a couple months before I used it (incase I’d need it sooner for “support”) now I can’t even return it for a refund. I would not recommend this item to anyone.
It literally did nothing. I was so excited reading the reviews, since I'm a waitress and 5 1/2 months in, I could really use the back support. I tried wearing It for a day. It honestly didn't do a damn thing. Not for my back and not for the pressure on my pelvis. I tried making it a little tighter but I felt like it was squishing my stomach and my sides, while still providing no support. Im 5'5" and 140 lbs. I also felt like the width was too thin. The only positive thing I'll say is that the material was soft but that's it. Seriously disappointed. Returning today.
I am sure this product works for women who are not plus sized, while I had it on it seemed to help. The velcro of the product did not hold very well causing it to fall off rather quickly. I would say if you are over a size 12 this won't fit. Other reviews convinced me I should get it (I am a size 18 Pre-pregnancy) and there is NO WAY this would stay on. I tried wearing it under my clothes and over my clothes thinkjng it would make a difference, it did not. The material is not that breathable either, it didn't stay on very long and I was getting warm. I say overall it isn't worth the hassle unless you are a smaller woman.
