The insta-famous belly support bandView all
This band is comfortable and is great to wear over my non maternity leggings to allow me to cover my belly comfortably. The only con is that it doesnt have much support. It is just tight compression fabric, nothing that really supports the back or bump, so i have to wear an additional pregnancy band that lifts the bump which i was hoping the ProBump would replace. Also, as others have mentioned in the reviews the band slides up when u walk and Bao Bei needs to add a non slip band to the bottom.
I use it for workouts and walks and it’s been so supportive on my growing belly! I’m hopeful that as I get bigger it’ll do even more wonders for this third pregnancy. I’ve also used it over pants that don’t zip and button, perfect! Doesn’t slip & supports for any occasion.
My sciatic got worse with each pregnancy and this time around I'm a full time pre-k teacher. So the support from this band is a miracle in itself. I feel less pain in my sciatic and the support of my bump is helping my posture and lessoning the amount of time I need to run to the bathroom. I've always greatly appreciated the Bao Bei brand. You can count on every product having mom to be as the utmost importance, prioritizing the pregnant body's needs through all stages of the journey.
Overall the ProBump has been a good supportive band, but my one complaint is that while it works great when I wear shorts (and tuck it inside the shorts) it sucks when I wear running tights (due to both being similar materials). If I put the waist of the tights over the band, my pants slide down and if I put the band over the waist, the band slides up and over my bump. The ProBand could benefit from no slip silicon strips on the inside (which I’m trying to figure out how to do myself). Other than that it’s been good.
If you’re thinking about buying it, do it! I’m bummed I only have 2 months to use it. I was having pelvic pressure and just overall feeling uncomfortable when running, walking and even strength training. It literally feels like a sports bra for my bump. I don’t have any pelvic pressure and it takes some pressure off my back! It is so comfortable, I don’t want to take it off!
This is a pretty good band all in all. It does help with pelvic pain and weigh distribution. It only rolls a little bit and it's comfortable to wear for hours on end.
I really wish they would extend their sizes. Though it stretches it doesn't sit as comfortable the further you stretch and it will roll more often. Im wearing the XL and I'm only 20 weeks so I know it probably won't last the rest of my pregnancy. Plus size pregnant women beyond size 20 deserve pain relief too.
During my first pregnancy I bought a cheap belly support band as I had abdominal separation and it did not seem to provide much relief. This pregnancy I decided to try this support band and I have loved it so far as it provides so much support and I am only half way through this pregnancy. I highly recommend this support band.
I've been struggling with a hernia and diaphragm tightness in my third pregnancy and this support band has been a life saver!
This is was part of my first Bao Bei purchase and worth every penny. I started using it during my first trimester and still using it at 35 weeks pregnant. I’ve used under my work clothes to go to the office, to workout, to clean the house, to walk, you name it! I’m 5’7 1/2 and my pre-pregnancy weight was 150, so I bought a Medium. It’s a very comfortable and firm band. A must purchase during your pregnancy!
Website said they ship within 72 hours and it took them a week to even acknowledge my order instead, plus I sent them multiple emails asking when it would be shipped and they never responded. It took my husband sending a aggravated email to get any sort of communication. Products are severely over priced, not impressed with the belly band I received and the underwear are uncomfortable. Won’t be purchasing anything else from this company.
Returning for a larger size and hoping that will work. Otherwise, seems like great quality and materials
ProBump™ Pregnancy Belly Support Band - CRÈME
Do not sit on this product like I did! This is my first pregnancy, and I will be 36 when my baby is born. I started struggling around Week 31. My belly, back, and hips just hurt, and I was doing all the things--keeping up with my water, taking warm baths with pregnancy flakes, using some magnesium lotion, etc. While these things do help, the root problem was that the band I was using just wasn't supporting my bump. I got my ProBump in the mail about 30 minutes ago. The relief I felt was instantaneous! After wearing it for 10 minutes, I called my husband while he was at work to tell him how much better I feel wearing the ProBump band. I didn't know I didn't have to be miserable! If you are looking for something to buy a pregnant friend, please buy them this band. The size chart is spot on, too, if you're wondering about the size.
I'm currently 36w pregnant and this band is perfect in almost every way. My primary complaint before wearing this was the constant pressure on my pelvis. I'm happy to report, with this, such pain was immediately alleviated. My primary complaint after wearing this is beyond baobei's control -- baby's movements! Whenever she moves while I'm wearing this, my gosh do I really feel it, and sometimes it's painful! (insert crying emoji). So if you've got a little dancer, be warned, wearing this will emphasize every one of baby's little movements.
Support is okay, but I had a group of peloton moms rave about this for round ligament pain and I don’t feel any different with this versus compression leggings. KT tape has helped more.
Right now I am at 19 weeks pregnant, my pre-pregnancy size was 2-6 depending on the brand. This band is made of great fabric, feels great, and comfortable, I've worn it working at home, walking, spinning, and doing some low-impact workouts, it didn't budge. The only thing is it a smidge big, not like its going to fall off or anything, and I imagine in a few weeks it will fit better, as I am steadily growing these days :) With my first pregnancy, I got DR pretty bad and this band will hopefully help prevent that this time, paired with better workouts. If anything it makes me feel supported and reminds me to breathe correctly and sit up straight - which is honestly really helpful. I would have def given it 5 stars if it was a little smaller.
Just entered my 3rd trimester and this has been a life saver. It has greatly decreased pelvic and lower back discomfort. They also had phenomenal customer service and resent my package for free when I accidentally had my order sent to the wrong address.
I’m so grateful for this item. I used to think pieces like this were luxury items, but really, this is a necessity to help protect your core during pregnancy. (Should have used with my first pregnancy but now it’s a necessity for my severe DR.) I tried getting away with a cheap store brand but this bao bei band is completely different and completely worth the money ..so much more supportive and surprisingly breathable.Thank you for making this product.
I wish I purchased this sooner!! I had purchased the bloomers early in my pregnancy and loved them. I decide some where around 33 weeks to order the pro bump. It arrived and I instantly loved the support I felt. My LO was born at 35 weeks so I didn’t get to use it as bump support for long. This is now an essential in my 4th trimester wardrobe. It helps with back pain, cramping, and core support as I move around. I have loved every product I have ordered!!! Thank you Bao Bei!
Purchased this at 36 weeks pregnant, really wish I would have gotten it earlier on to help support my abs. It has definitely helped relieve my lower back pain and rib pain. Definitely recommend. I only wish it was slightly longer, I’m 5’9”, fits fine but I could handle it if it was just slightly longer
Happy ProBump Mamas!
While wearing the Belly Sport Band I was able to run 1000 pregnant miles, comfortably because it absorbed a lot of the weight & pressure of my growing belly. I loved the support it gave me so much that I wore it all day long starting at about 25 weeks. If you're wondering "should I buy it?'... Just do it. It was literally my most favorite and necessary maternity item purchased - nothing compares.
I just spent the morning at the zoo with a 2 & 4 year old while wearing my support band. BEST PURCHASE EVER! I can't believe I waited so long. Worth every penny and better than any other band I've tried!!
I just got my ProBump belly band in the mail!!!!! HOLY GRAIL!!!!! Literally the SECOND I put it on I instantly felt relief!!!!! I am almost 18 weeks, third baby and I wish this was around years ago when I had my other two! You guys are heaven sent for making these!!!!! THANK YOU so much!!!!!
Now that my tummy has been gradually getting bigger my absolute lifesaver has been my Bao Bei Maternity sports band. This is SO comfortable and has really helped with my lower back. Maybe this is in my head but I honestly think it’s been helping with keeping stretch marks at bay too because my tummy is supported and held in place rather than being pulled down by gravity. Not only for working out I wear mine everyday.
I'm a physician who bought your ProBump and it's been life changing. I had such horrible back pain prior to this band. I used another band before but its range of support was inferior. I went from moaning in pain to being pain free. I just showed it to my OBGYN who was so impressed he is going to start recommending to his patients! Kudos to you for your innovation!
I am 37 weeks pregnant and we moved this weekend. At first I wasn't wearing my ProBump and within minutes was having Braxton Hicks and pelvic pain. I put the ProBump on and have had no issues!! Seriously a life saver.
I can honestly say this band has completely SAVED me and helped support my belly working out, running, and even sometimes just around the house. I'm also so pumped to use it for POSTPARTUM RECOVERY!!
