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 got this while still pregnant & found it too restrictive for my belly. I was carrying twins though & all of my weight was at my belly. I didn't wear it while pregnant. I tried it post partum to help hold my saggy belly in but it didn't offer enough back support or feel snug enough. After the babies were out I could've probably gone a size smaller than I had. Doesn't help that a few days after delivery I lost 34 lbs in water weight! I ended up getting a belly band/back support/ waist trainer that I have been using instead. Little disappointed this product couldn't be used for me.
I followed sizing guide and got the small. It felt OK for the first months but would be useful for the rest. So I switched for M. It feels comfortable but I don't know if it's going to help the skin or compression/lifting clothing (less weight). I would also add a second plastic non slipping band at the bottom so it doesn't move that much. But I also understand that it is supposed to be easy belly reach...(?) Packaging was nice. They are pricey but I guess it's because of the button pant straps. They are somewhat useful but you must use them with the band. Otherwise you'll have a hole beneath the strap.
The idea of this product is great, I love that it comes with the button extension. I have 2 major problems with this item: 1.) the button extension does not have a secure way to keep buttoned. Aka it comes with a very small button that could easily come undone.
2.) it does not help keep your pants up. Every time I sit down, I have to pull my pants back up when I stand. I’m currently only 21 weeks, but I imagine this problem will only become worse
I am in the in-between phase of pregnancy where my regular pants are too snug to button comfortably but maternity pants are too big in the belly. The band itself works well so far and stays in place. It doesn’t really smooth the area where my pants are unbuttoned, but I am wearing loose shirts now anyway. My problem is that the product advertises the band AND the button extenders, yet I did not receive the extenders in my package. Super disappointed about it since I chose this product because it was a package deal with all items.
So the size 4 is NOT for plus size. I wore a 16 before pregnancy I’m only 13 weeks and got these to try and wear my jeans longer as well as some of my tighter yoga pants I tried it on without any pants on and it was already super tight. If you are above a size 16/18 and are on the curvy side like you have a butt then I would look for a different brand. The support is excellent and it felt good as far as shaping but it will not support my belly for very long. I did really like the button extenders which made the order for me.
I do like these bands, they are comfortable to wear. They seem to better for when standing up. My job consists of a lot of movement and I have found myself adjusting my wrap many times throughout the day. I partly wonder if the size is too small for me. I ordered the largest size but feel it maybe slightly tighter than I’d hoped for. Still it is a nice material and does not itch or rub me raw so that is great.
These are a nice idea and they do stretch enough to wear them as long as needed. Unfortunately they do not stay in place. They bunch up and roll up from the bottom, which defeats the purpose of it hiding the zipper. Definitely a bummer.
Sizing is off. I ordered my normal size and they were too small. I would suggest ordering up a size. With the correct size these are great! You can slightly seem them under tighter shirts but overall they are pretty good.
I think it is not for me. Even pregnancy pants are uncomfortable for me. I used it for a week or so but keeps rolling up. If I am careful, it is good when you still use regular pants that you can not longer close and need to hide the opening.
Does what it was supposed to, but I only wore it once or twice. My last trimester was in the summer months so I just ended up wearing a set of maternity leggings I bought instead of this over jeans or shorts. Not a “must have” item for me.
