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.
After using an SI belt at physical therapy I was looking for a pregnancy friendly belt to help support my low back while still being comfortable to wear while pregnant. I am updating my review from my previous 1-star. I figured out that this belt has to be placed on your belly just so in order for it to be tight enough around your waist. I had several failed attempts (there are no instructions with this product) but the Velco should line up on your left side which allows you to adjust. The thing I like most about this belt is that it is breathable and I can wear it at night without over heating. I also think even though it is a thicker material it is not very visible under most of my summer clothing (that is pretty tight). For reference I am 5'2'' and bought this at the end of my 2nd trimester. Original waist was 27 inches. This is worth the price point just to try. I also suggest giving it a few days to work along with whatever stretches, change of shoes, chiropractic care you are receiving to all work together to help.
My best friend is pregnant going into her third trimester. She has been suffering from pelvic pain throughout her entire pregnancy. She said she tried several support belts that just weren’t working. So, I began to ask around. Several people recommended Nu Momz. So, I bought one and gave it to her as a gift. Ever since she’s been wearing it, she swears that the pain has been reduced significantly. This could be one of the best presents I’ve ever gotten anyone!
I’ve been experiencing severe bladder pressure entering my second trimester. A friend suggested that I try a belly band to help. I would have never thought that a belly band would relieve pressure. But, I was wrong! The support I get from this band has really helped, not to mention the relief I feel on my lower back. Highly recommended!
This belt is a life saver!! I can’t thank you enough, the quality, the color, the way it fits is perfect around my belly. I’ve used many pregnancy belts and this one is the absolute best so far! I even wear it through the night without any pain or issue. I definitely will be ordering more and telling all pregnant Mothers! Thank you NuMomz :)
I'll be honest, I was a bit on the fence about purchasing anything during my second trimester that might make me feel even more pregnant and huge than I already did, but this was an unexpected and revelatory purchase. The material is sturdy but forgiving, softer than I'd thought it would be, and actually helps me with my deep breathing exercises for stress, not to mention a nice respite from the lower back aches. I wore it three days straight and actually forgot it was on! Great product, I'd highly recommend this belt to all new mamas to be.
I’m currently 28 weeks pregnant, 150 pounds & recently started getting pain below my belly because of the weight. I tried on the belly bandit band at target & immediately felt relief & it felt so comfortable. After putting this on there was still pain but not as much & no matter how much I tighten this band it doesn’t seem to be holding up my belly much. This band does provide support but barely any & barley any pain relief. It is somewhat comfortable.. minus it digging into my back fat from how tight I have to make it to do anything.
I wasn't sure if it was just me, but I couldn't get this band tight enough to feel supportive. It was easy enough to velcro, but i felt like i was wearing a simple belly band, not really something that helped carry by stomach.
I’m giving this belt 5 stars because I bought this for a friend and her back pain went from an 8 out of 10 to a 2 within the first week of use! The previous belts that she bought simply didn’t do the job. I believe that the quality, construction and support of this product is superior than anything else she has tried. The most important thing is that her pain has subsided considerably, and is now much more comfortable. She feels a huge relief! I wish I knew about Nu Momz before! If I could give it 10 stars, I would!
Im 36 weeks pregnant and nearly all belly. I was starting to feel a lot of pressure when standing and having a lot of discomfort when walking. Decided to try this because of the reviews. The first 2 or 3 days it actually made a difference. I was feeling better. But its not enough. Eventually before the end of 1 weeks use it just crumpled under my belly and its more uncomfortable than anything. Would like to give it a 1.5 but thats not possible. Maybe it works for a smaller bump but it does nothing for me.
