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.
Bought this for holding up my drawstring scrub pants at work and it is doing the job pretty well! I haven’t used it for any other type of pants so can’t comment on universal appeal. My work involves a lot of movement and this doesn’t let my scrubs budge (though they are very light so can’t say for sure that that will be the case for heavier pants). I debated getting a bamboo or cotton based band for a more breathable fabric but decided to give this a try and I am not disappointed. I went for this one because the bamboo band I was looking at didn’t have a sticky band at the bottom (which this one does) and I just don’t see how things will stay in place without one. It’s long enough to cover my whole bump at 33 weeks. Most importantly, stays in place!! It may give a slight lift to my tummy but it’s not significant enough where anyone should buy it for pregnancy related back or pelvic pain. The product doesn’t claim to do this anyway so shouldn’t be evaluated on it. I am 5’3” and 152 lbs at 33 weeks and bought a medium.
It’s an okay product, it’s not overly tight or constricting but it doesn’t stay put and it doesn’t do a great job of smoothing out my pant extenders (the extra button and the bit of material that bunches up from the zipper being open). The front seems to stay put but I’m constantly have to pull the back down. But I will say it’s keeping my pants from falling off my hips so it’s not a total loss!
Currently 6 months pregnant with my first. My pre-pregnancy size was a small, so that's the size I got and it has just enough compression and support that it takes the pressure and feeling like my skin is being over-stretched off. I've washed it a few times since receiving it and the elasticity and stickiness of the top strip has maintained it's structure! Would definitely recommend, and if you're closer to the end of pregnancy, maybe size up one. I'll definitely order another in medium for the last month or so.
This product is Great. It's not to big & not to little it's not too tight & not too loose It fits just right. It stretches and it's very comfortable & gives you extra room. I love this product. I will be buying from this company again. Hope the purchase of another a product is to my satisfaction again.
