I am a plus size lady and was a bit worried this might not fit as I was a little over 30 weeks when I purchased this. I am so pleased to say it not only fits but helps me out SO much! I have had a surgery to correct my cervix and it caused my stomach muscles to weaken. Long story short after my c section (2nd pregnancy) it caused more sagging and pain with this pregnancy. When I got the maternity belt my world has literally changed! I wish I had been recommend to get one sooner as I am 31 weeks into my pregnancy now but the pain in my back feels like I'm only getting into the 20s! It is soft and very strong, so far I have not had an issue with the velcro coming undone while it's on. I have it on all the time unless I'm sleeping, it fits over my clothes which is a big plus for me so its easier to adjust if I need to. For anyone wanting to know a rough size comparison I was a size 20/22 before pregnancy and currently a size 26 comfortably. I HIGHLY recommend this product for anyone including my fellow plus size moms. 😁 The picture shows no belt on top and with belt on the bottom. I hope this review helps you.
I have been suffering from abdominal muscle pain in one particular area whilst being in the third trimester. Pain was bad enough to limit my daily activities. I decided to trial maternity belt even though i have always been very sceptical about them. Choosing between all those maternity belts was not easy, but to see a photo with a belt on a real bump in the reviews helped me to make a decision. I have been wearing it for a week now and it has made a huge difference. No pain with a belt on. It is also quite comfortable and does not irritate skin. Easy to put on and adjust. I would definitely recommend it.
I Could not stand up straight before this belt ,i am only 20 weeks in ,and baby bump is very small ,but i felt so much pressure and discomfort from tight heavy feeling in the womb and my lower back ..... , UNTIL i put this belt on .It fits all sizes and can be worn really snug to relieve tension . I'm so much more happy now ,its the best purchase EVER!! .
This product is amazing! I am 26 weeks pregnant and have been in agony with my back for few weeks now, I've had pregnancy massages with no relief.... literally had this on one day and finally I can manage a whole day at work and can sit without constant pain... would highly recommend... takes a lot of the weight pressure off you and helps with posture too.
I just received the belt and it seems to be made very well with quality materials. It has a short description on how to use it properly. I have a huge belly and despite this, it fits perfectly and the pressure can be easily adjusted. It's quite comfortable and it fits well under clothes, not tight one though. It has a pad on the center which comes attached to your belly and this pad is soft and it also covers the belly button if it happens to have an outtie that is visible under your clothes. I hope the velcro is good enough and it lasts until my pregnancy is over. From what it seems I think it can also be used after birth as a light support for the first few days especially after a C Section.
I struggle with spd / pelvic girdle pain during pregnancy. My stomach muscles have also separated quite a lot from about half way through pregnancy. I bought this to support my stomach muscles, it’s not strong enough to hold hips and pelvis in place. It seemed to help a bit. But then I started seeing a physiotherapist, who gave me tubigrip to wear over my entire bump. This gave more relief that the belt did. She said I could wear the belt over the tubigrip, but I didn’t feel any additional benefit from this and have just worn the tubigrip.
My wife has been wearing this daily for the past two months and loves it. Good quality and in her own words " makes me feel better although I don't know if it is more psychological". Anyways happy wife, happy life.
Where to start... It helped a little however I wouldn’t say enough to justify the price. It also was very visible through tops even if they was not tight just slightly loose fitting. If you wear very baggy clothing that will not be a problem.
