I bought this belly band for one specific reason— I wear scrubs to work and I didn’t want to waste money on maternity pants, but my scrubs are draw string and have no stretch. I’m 25 weeks pregnant with my second child and quickly needed to figure something out. These bands work perfect for holding up my scrubs at work without having to tie them and still are super comfortable! They don’t provide really much support and I actually wear another Velcro belly band over it some days on long shifts, but I bought them with the intention of just holding my scrubs up and it’s perfect for that. It does not slip or ride up and my top covers it perfect. I did order a small (I’m 5’10” and pregnancy weight of 180) and it fits just fine so I would likely size down.
I was really nervous to purchase this product after reading some of the reviews, however, a few of my co-workers had recommended similar products so I went ahead and ordered anyway. I have to say they’ve been a lifesaver. I can now continue to wear my old jeans without being uncomfortable. Size wise, I wore 4-6 jeans prior to this pregnancy. At 4 1/2 months pregnant, the size large fits me perfectly. I would buy again.
Been having horrible lower back and lower stomach pain, this helped so much! Also has a sticky line across the top that helps to hold in place. 5’4”, now 150 and bought a small, definitely has room to grow as I get bigger but not so much that is isn’t helpful now.
These are perfect for wearing over pants that you're trying to use the rubberband trick to make them last longer... it smooths out clothing lines and the sort to make a rounder bump. I have not had any issues with the top or bottom rolling up or down.
not what i expected when i first purchased it being way too stretchy. never got around to sending it back and now well into my third trimester i HAVE to wear it with my dresses. it gives the right amount of belly support and smooths out the back fat. other shapers dont go up high enough and end up cutting right wear i need some smoothing out.
I love the choice of colors in this 3-pack. Especially the grey, for those days when black is too dark and white shines through! MATERIAL-feels great and not at all itchy against bare skin (in case you dont want extra layers.) The size seems to be a true fit.
I bought these because the idea of buying brand new clothes just purely for the next few months of my pregnancy was daunting. I wanted to be able to wear my shorts and jeans and not rely on the ponytail trick, too. So I bought the two pack and wore one the very first day we received them in the mail — it was PERFECT! Even though I wore a tight fitting shirt over the belly band, you couldn’t tell that my shorts weren’t buttoned and they stayed up ALL day! Never once was I worried that my pants would fall down or the belly band would come off! I will say that if you’re looking for a lot of support, these bands aren’t what you need.
Background: I’m 21 weeks pregnant and my bump is fairy large, as everyone keeps asking “are you SURE you’re only __ weeks?!” 🙄 I’m not a large person, I was around 135 pounds when I got pregnant. Gained a lot early in the quarantine/pregnancy so I’m about 155 now. I ordered the mediums and actually wish I would’ve ordered the smalls, just for more support and tightness. Even though my pants stayed up, I found myself wishing the bands were tighter.
I'm 27 weeks pregnant in photos. Around 25 weeks I began looking into some sort of support for the growing bump. I saw baobab maternity had support bands, but at basically $60/band...that was just a no go. I found these and WOWWWW. So impressed by the support. I did not have any kind of back pain, it was just my bump getting heavier. This band feels like a sports bra for my belly. lol! And was just what I was looking for. It does not roll down on me, and stays put. I'm 5'9". Before pregnancy, I wore pant size 10 and wore M/L tops. I've always been one of those people who are always in between sizes (even when I was thinner, it was S/M)....which is annoying. The Medium in this fits perfectly snug, while still leaving room for my belly to growwwww. It even helps hold my maternity pants up (again, I was in between sizes - M a bit tight, L a bit loose). ANYWAY, no regrets. Glad I got the 3 pack!
These are a cool concept I bought these after deciding I didn’t want to invest in a full pregnancy wardrobe and realizing I could still fit in my clothes apart from buttoning on the waistline They work as described and are made of a soft stretchy material that stays in place as you move. They are plenty long so you can pull them down however much you like. I wore these during the summer months and didn’t get too hot, so they must breathe well too. One caveat I’d give is that if you do get bigger during your pregnancy, these might no work for you as you won’t be able to fit in your regular clothes around the legs and that defeats the purpose of these! I got the Medium, I’m 5.7”, 128lbs pre-pregnancy and 145lbs at 9 months. Could have gotten the smaller for a snugger fit!
