I unexpectedly had a c-section, and recovery was very tough for the first week or so. I couldn’t get these leggings on until about 8 days out, but once I did, they were a total game changer. Instead of shuffling around hunched over, I could stand up straight and walk normally at almost my normal pace. They felt incredible. They were hard to get on and off initially and I had to lie down to get them on, but it got easier over time. So, so worth the money! Was 5’2” and 125lbs pre-pregnancy, went up to 154lbs during pregnancy, and started wearing these when I was back down to 136lbs postpartum. Size Small fit perfectly. Cannot recommend these highly enough! They made an incredible difference in my recovery.
I wanted to love these leggings. The compression felt great, but for over $100 I expect more from a quality perspective. I’ve washed on cool with like colors in a lingerie bag and hung to dry three times since I received the leggings. The stitching has come undone in two places on the leggings. I just received my second pair in the mail and plan to return because I can’t justify the cost for the quality.
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!
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 really on the fence about ordering these for myself because of the price, but I am SO glad I did. These are more comfortable than all my maternity leggings, regular leggings, ect. I have ONLY worn these post partum. I had polyhydroamnios and on babys birthday weighed 110 lbs over my normal weight. The amount of swelling and need for core support was unreal after my c section. The compression was exactly what I needed immediately and beyond post c section to help me heal. They are completely worth the investment.
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.
