Nylon material, which is not the softest. They helped with some of my pants so they did not slide down with my growing belly. I do not think it added enough support to make a difference to my lower back pain. Would not order again.
I got the small and they are WAY too loose at the top. I’m 17 weeks with my 3rd and got big fast so I wanted something to help smooth out my belly and extend the use of some non-maternity dress pants. I’m 5’5” and my prepregnancy weight was 135, I’m now about 145. The band I got at target is so much more smoothing and snug and stays in place so much better. I would definitely not recommend these.
These are huge. I am 5'8, 155lbs (34' hips 32' waist) and 17 weeks pregnant (not a tiny person). I am just starting to show so I wanted something to support and smoothe out my tummy. Following the size chart, I ordered a medium- which was so long I could wear it as a tube top. They are extremely stretchy and soft though, so I returned and ordered a small thinking it would actually fit. Nope. It still fit from right under my boobs and stretched all the way down over my large butt. And I cant just put it where it's supposed to be because you can see how scrunched up it is under my clothes.
Id say, don't buy these unless your 8-9 months pregnant and your belly is GIGANTIC or you are very heavy set and need all the extra material.
I purchased these with hopes to wear my normal pants longer. The bands provided no support and did not provide any coverage where open buttons or zippers were concerned. It's essentially an extra piece of fabric, like an undershirt without a top.
