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.
within minutes of wearing the support band, my back was already thanking me! I'm pregnant with my second baby and I'm kicking myself for not getting this for my first pregnancy!
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!
OBSESSED with this support band. I am a nurse working 12+ hr shifts three times a week. This band has given me back so much mobility and helped with my lower back pain. It’s soft and movable, not restrictive at all. Excited to have it postpartum too for a soft support while organs are figuring themselves out again.
I was so excited about this band. I got it because of all the great reviews and needing extra support when going for runs and exercising. The day I got it I went for a run to try it out. The seam started to unravel immediately. I contacted their customer service, and they immediately sent me a new one as I sent the defective one back. Customer service was great and they stood behind their product. I received my new band and it’s been about a month of use and the band seems are beginning to pull up again. I am a little upset with the quality of the product being you pay a decent price for the band. Other than the seams coming up, the band does help with pregnancy aches and is very comfortable. It’s is definitely like a sports bra for your bump! It has been a game changer for easing my aches during runs!
This is the best thing that I've purchased during my pregnancy. It is comfortable enough to wear every day, while chasing my toddler, and supportive enough to do more intense exercise. I recommend this to all of my friends and family who are expecting!
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.
