Been wearing since 15 weeks currently 24. Not helpful for round ligament pains or any pains really. Lost tightness quickly despite following washing instructions completely. Pretty disappointing for price point
I wore this band during my second trimester while walking, it was wonderful and gave me the support I needed. BUT during the third trimester my belly started getting heavy, and the probump was a life changer. I wear this everyday!!! If you splurge on only one thing during your pregnancy... this is IT!
I am a RN and was having constant Braxton Hicks at 25 weeks while working. When I wear my Pro Bump I MIGHT have 1-2 Braxton Hicks! Total game changer! I can work without constantly being uncomfortable!
Overall, I think this is a great idea for a product and it's pretty well executed. I haven't found anything else that is supportive in this gentle way, where it doesn't feel like it's pushing anything down or excessively squeezing the bump. My only complaint is that it is not all that helpful for pear shaped body types as the garment is very straight up and down. I first got a S, which felt perfect on my upper abs, but was too tight on my lower abs/back (felt like it was forcing me to arch my lower back). I exchanged for a M, which feels good on my lower abs, but is very loose on my upper abs. I currently weigh 170lbs at 30 weeks (pre-pregnancy I weighed 142lbs and wore a size 6-8 on bottom and a size 0-2 on top). I have 43" hips, 37" bump, and 31" just under my bra line. I need the most support in my upper abs as my baby is sitting high and I'm having a lot of stretching there, so this garment unfortunately doesn't really work for that. I'm going to keep it as I think the support will continue to be nice and gentle for my lower abs especially as I get bigger, but I think a larger range of sizes or perhaps shapes would be helpful!
This band is great and I haven't been able to find anything else like it. It's well made, easily washable, and it never feels too tight even as your belly grows. I've worn it running through pregnancy, and though you may want to add a velcro-type band for extra support toward the end of pregnancy if you are still running, its definitely a must have for anyone who wants to stay active and be comfortable.
These leggings are exactly as advertised and totally worth the money. I received a quality product that provides a real hug to the pelvic area without feeling too tight. I was a little apprehensive about buying online without trying on; I'm 5'10, up to around 180lbs at the end of my pregnancy and around 140 pre-pregnancy. The sales staff was very helpful via email. I am now wearing a size Medium about 10 days post partum. I have not washed them yet, but the material seems very sturdy, definitely squat-proof. This was my third pregnancy (all vaginal deliveries) and I wish I would have had these for after my first pregnancy when I had a tough recovery from a significant episiotomy. Thanks to Baobei for making a quality garment for all the fresh Mom's who so need and deserve it! Would definitely recommend.
I want to love these, I really do. I have both bloomers and a belly band in small and I love both, they fit great and had no problems. The small legging I ordered is MUCH smaller than the other items in this line. I get it they are supposed to be tight, and they are, and I am withing a couple pounds of my pre-pregnancy weight so that shouldn't be an issue. ( I was a 2-4 before) I am 5'3" with a short torso and they constantly roll down. For a pair of leggings over $100 I expected a bit more, like pockets for starters.
I packed these for the hospital and only regret is that I waited almost a whole day to put them on. I felt stronger immediately after putting them on. Love them so much that I have two pairs and wore them basically exclusively for 6 weeks PP. I gift them to all my pregnant friends!
My last pregnancy I ordered a small size (my usual size) and they felt super snug so I would most definitely size up one to a medium this time around. I only got to wear them a few times, but I know that I would have gotten more use out of them if I would have had the time to exchange them, but being a new mom all over again I kept forgetting. This time around I will have a medium tucked away in my hospital bag for the ESSENTIALS. This brand is truly amazing and I love all of the products I have used. Not a single complaint from this mama. Now going on mom of 4!!!!
I’m currently suffering from insomnia, so I decided to review this product since I’m currently wearing it.
I gave birth April 2018 to a 8lb 7oz boy,naturally, and recovery was HELL! (I had tearing)
August 2019 I gave birth to a 7lb 4oz girl Also naturally. BUT recovery WAS NOT HELL and I have these leggings to thank.
It’s not even recommended for woman to give birth less than 18months apart because the body needs time to heal! These leggings made and continue to make the healing process amazing!!
I wore it the first day after giving birth and by day two I was up and walking around!!!
Not only have these comfortable but they are soft and they truly truly help with the recovery process.
INVEST IN THIS LADIES !
Holy cow! I just got the pro bump in the mail today and I put it on immediately! I have a 9 month old and I’m 6 months along and I’ve been having back and sciatic pain. Well after putting on the pro bump I am so happy today I am pain free tonight! After chasing around my daughter, bath time, and cleaning my house. I am in zero pain! I will be recommending this to every single person I know!
This band is the best! I have it in black too, and I love them. This is my first pregnancy, and I am so lucky to have found this company! The probump is the only way to get through the third trimester. I am almost 38 weeks pregnant, and I was able to be mostly on my feet for work for 13 hours. Seriously this is a necessity!
For reference I am 5’4”, 160lbs, size 6/8 pre-pregnancy and I’m 22 weeks with my second baby. I was nervous about the sizing since I ordered a small but it fits perfect and I’m glad I stuck to the size chart! This time around back and pelvic pain has started so much sooner than before! My doctor recommended I wear some type of support especially with how active I am with my 18 month old son. My old pregnancy support brace was so uncomfortable I decided to splurge on this belly band! SO WORTH IT. I feel a lot of support and while I still have back pain this definitely alleviated a lot of the pelvic pressure, hip pain, and looseness I felt in my abdomen! I think this will be great throughout my whole pregnancy and especially postpartum.
I started wearing this 3rd trimester and it was a life saver. I could tell a huge difference on days I had it on and days I didnt. Worth every penny (like all the baobei products I’ve tried!)
I got this belly band around the 1st week of my 3rd trimester and wore it EVERY DAY. It gave me such a nice supported feeling and when baby got bigger, it helped me not to feel like I was about to explode. I think it also helped me not to get as many stretch marks this time around. Looking at the size chart, I would be a size large but ended up going with the medium and had no regrets. It was perfect. I liked having a slightly more hugged/supported feeling. My belly was around 44-45 inches towards the end (I'm sure the belly band stretched out a bit by that time) and it was still really comfortable. I'm a pretty frugal person, and this was a splurge but I'm so glad I got this band! I'd recommend it in conjunction with the Fit Splint for working out/even more belly support - these two were a lifesaver!
As a mama who gets super large during my pregnancies (I'm 5"3 my husband is 6"7 haha so it's so be expected) I have never felt so supported! Feels like my bump is getting a hug! The coverage is amazing, I have never had leggings that covered my entire bump and doesn't slide down with my day to day activities!! I'm very impressed! I would highly recommend these leggings.
I'm giving these 5 stars because they are really awesome and offer a really nice gentle support through the legs and lower belly. I think the fit will work for most bodies during most stages of pregnancy. I did want to note that the size guide is not super helpful. I understand why it's quite vague--everything is stretchy and it's hard to give accurate sizes when bodies, especially pregnant bodies, are all so different. But basing it on pre-pregnancy size seems particularly odd given that every body grows differently during pregnancy. So, in case it's helpful to anyone: I'm 27 weeks, 5'4" and currently 162 lbs. My hips are 42" at the widest part, belly is 36", and rib cage where the pants hit is 32", and the mediums fit me great and will hopefully continue to do so through the rest of this trimester. I will say that if you have a smaller upper body than lower (my rib cage is teeny compared to my hips), the top part of these will not be very tight or supportive. I really wanted compression up there to support my abs separating, and I thought these might do the trick, but alas, they do not. ProBump is probably better for that anyway though!
I bought a size medium, I likely could have gone down to a small but pre-pregnancy I was a size 6 in most lululemon. But I also know this is my third pregnancy and I expect to be quite large by the end of it (pre-pregnancy 145lbs at 5”7’ but gain just about 45-50lbs in each pregnancy). At 20 weeks Im still fitting in my lululemon but I know I’ll be at the end of those soon. Anyway, these leggings are crazy comfortable and really hold up nicely. I feel like even though I’ve sized up I have very good support and I have no doubt that these will take me through the entire pregnancy. Have worked out in them, no sheerness. They are totally worth every penny (and Im Canadian where the exchange isn’t in my favour, plus duties and shipping!). Would recommend to anyone.
These leggings were a key staple in my maternity wear during my last pregnancy. And I most definitely plan to buy a few more this time around! I am usually a size small, that’s what I also went with these leggings. They were snug and super comfortable. The belly support was amazing, especially the core coverage for winter pregnancy. I love these, and this is the only brand of maternity legging I trust because of the quality! Worth every cent!!
I have practiced in these twice now, and I’m loving them more and more each time I wear them. I’m 19 weeks along, and still have plenty of room to grow into in these. I’m at the point in pregnancy where movement without some sort of belly support leaves my low back feeling pretty angry, and after two back to back yoga practices wearing these, I’m feeling great! The support level is perfect - just enough hug without a hint of squish or compression. And the oh so important question that we all skim reviews for - they pass the bend over test with flying colors!
I was so hesitant to purchase these because of the price tag, but I LIVED in the BaoBei belly band through my last 2 pregnancies and know the quality of the company's products. So I decided to get the black crop leggings and am so glad I did! They felt so good after my delivery. I didn't start to wear them until about 2 weeks postpartum to allow my stomach to shrink down a little bit first. But I've been wearing them constantly since then (currently 6 mo PP). The panel is firm and supportive and the leggings are a great fit. I am 5'9" 165# and ordered a M--what I normally would wear pre-pregnancy. I went back and forth several times about whether I should order a M or L, but the M ended up being perfect; I like the snug fit of the panel. I definitely recommend these! The only thing that would make them better is pockets!
So...let me start by admitting that I'm not one to splurge on myself, so I was a little hesitant spending this kind of money on some leggings. I'm cheap, I get it. :) I did, however, take the words of advice from a few other mom-friends who had purchased these and swore by them. I used a new member discount code and saw on Instagram that they were going to offer these in a new darker teal color (Lagoon). Once the new color was released, I got a black pair (goes with anything!) and the Lagoon (truly, beautiful!). I originally ordered a size medium, which is what I typically wear. I'm 5'6" and weigh around 180 at 7 mo. pregnant. Once they came in, I stupidly tried them on...let me tell ya, they're not for a baby belly! Lol. I decided, even with the birth of a child, I probably needed to size up. I'm glad I did, too, because I just got the larges in and they will fit great (snug, but not like a freakin' sausage) once my kiddo arrives. They're a nice, smooth legging and high quality material. I will say that the seam around the pelvic and butt area (kind of their "waistband" area) do sit a bit low, like pregnancy underwear. I'm guessing I'll be grateful for that, should I need a C-section. If you're kind of on the frugal side, like me, get the discount code and don't look back. You'll like these...and they're worth it!
These are my absolute favorite leggings! I have diastasis recti and an umbilical hernia from pregnancy, and these are the only leggings that make me feel supported, slim, and “normal” again, and don’t cause pain. The material is very high quality and makes me look good all around! Well worth the price - the only thing I wear! And if you are breastfeeding, they are perfect for hiding your tummy if you have to pull your shirt up!
I wore these crops for a few days immediately postpartum before I had to size down to a small. I washed them once and somehow there is already a thread pull on the side, which is disappointing for how expensive these are. I do love the support, especially as I recover from a natural delivery and a third-degree tear.
Sculpt & Recovery Postpartum Crop Pants
This is the best purchase I made my entire pregnancy. I can't believe I survived the first 24 weeks without this game changer! At 34 weeks now, it's perfect for working out, days I'm out and about, and when I need extra back support. I wish I had another! Highly recommend this to all mamas!
If you love working out while pregnant, or just need round ligament pain relief... you seriously need to buy this!! It’s so comfortable but I can tell it’s taking most of the weight off my back. Being 33 weeks, I’ve been so glad to have this! I’m glad I’ll have it for our next pregnancy as well, it’s made to last!! Love this company and own MANY products.
I ordered the band after researching several other brands for several months. I went by the sizing guide of ordering your pre-pregnancy size four tops that would be a medium for me. The first couple days I thought the band fit great. However the longer I wore it the more wrinkled it was so tight it was riding up on me. Considering I'm due in July and have 3 months left I don't see this being feasible to wear long term. Knowing I will just continue to get bigger! I also realize it's supposed to be it tight fit but not so tight you can barely get it off some days. Now I'm really frustrated because it was quite a large purchase and now I need a bigger size and I can't return it...
Highly highly recommend the belly band and bloomers. Just purchased these at 32 weeks and wish I had done so sooner. Great pelvic support provided by both items.
I was looking for support this round of pregnancy, as it was one of my biggest regrets of my first twin pregnancy in 2016-2017. I’m 7 weeks and beginning to show with these little ones and I feel so secure and supported wearing this daily in the office, at the gym, and anywhere!
This band was recommended to me by two of my pregnant mama friends and I’m SO glad they shared this amazing product! The band provides great support without being uncomfortable, too tight, or bulky. Aside for the extra lift and support I feel, I almost forget I even have it on!
I ordered a size small and it fits great. Currently in my third trimester (32 weeks), 5’7” and current pregnancy weight of 170lbs. The small fits great and feel confident there is room for my growing belly.
This is my third pregnancy. First time with this belly band and OH MY GOODNESS. I've had it for my 3rd trimester and it has helped so much. Just the right amount of support and it is not too hot in these hot summer days. I worked as a RN throughout both my prior pregnancies and very much wish I would have had this support for those long shifts. Thankful to have it now, especially as I continue to actively workout. Currently 37 weeks.
ProBump™ Pregnancy Belly Support Band - COCO
These have been a lifesaver on my pelvic floor and relieving the round ligament pain, giving me the support I need to workout and chase my other kiddos around all day.
Love the fit and feel of these leggings! One thing I was caught off guard by is that although I’m athletic my calves are larger, and the compression from the leggings makes my skin bulge out of the open slits in the calves, which I did not consider would happen. Definitely a personal preference situation, but if you’re self conscious about your legs to begin with (like myself), might want to forgo the slits.
These are the 2nd pair of the postpartum crop pants I've ordered, and I love them. I first ordered the black pair to wear soon after my delivery. I'm now almost 6 months postpartum and purchased this pair because I loved the others so much. I do think the panel is a little less firm than the black pair that I have, but I still love the pants. The color is beautiful, too. I'm normally a black and grey legging wearer but decided to branch out and am glad I did. I'm 5'9" 165# and ordered a M. They fit really well and give great support. The material is high quality. I also had great experience with the company when I contacted them with a question. I highly recommend the company and these crop pants!
I’m almost 33 weeks pregnant, and threw out my back (probably from chasing my other 2 toddlers around). I purchased this support band to see if it would help me get both core and back support while carrying the weight of the baby plus the demands of being a mom of a 1 and 3 year old, and that’s exactly what it does! I feel supported all around, I feel like when I bend over, everything is held together instead of my muscles giving out, and I just feel so strong. This is going to be A part of my daily Wardrobe for the next 7 weeks (and probably after pregnancy too!) it’s worth every penny and I’ll most likely be purchasing another one! Thank you for the amazing, 360 degree support!!!
I’m currently 38 weeks pregnant! I started wearing The probump 37 weeks! I wish I had It sooner! It’s a great form of support really making you feel secure and takes a huge weight off you lower back and lower abdominals. I am personal trainer and it’s helped my workouts so much I recommend wearing the ProBump as soon as your bump makes its debuts! It’s really a game changer.
I am currently 27 weeks pregnant with my third child and wish I had worn the ProBump with my first 2 pregnancies! I am still running and doing HIIT workouts (with modifications as needed) and feel so well supported with the band ( I honestly don't think I could do what I can now without it!) It helps alleviate some SI joint/low back pain I feel with my pregnancies and cues me to contract my core while providing the perfect amount of relief from pregnancy aches/pains. Also- I am a size 0/2 pre-pregnancy and the size small fits perfectly (and I LOVE the new vivid color!), I began wearing it around 19 weeks and when my stomach was a little smaller I would just fold it to provide a little more support. Highly recommend to all pregnant mamas out there!!!
Currently 20 weeks and right now feels great and supportive and stays put. Although I am unsure whether or not it will carry me to the end of my pregnancy to be honest. I purchased my pre-pregnancy size (S) but this is my 3rd pregnancy and while my weight gain has been the same between all, my stomach is much larger than I was at 20 weeks with my first pregnancy. I cannot see how I can get another 20 weeks out of the band, maybe 8-10 weeks at best. I also noticed the size chart printed on the product packaging is different than what is online.
