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 !
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 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
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!
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.
