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 must have for anyone who is pregnant. It helps with DR, back pain, and is comfortable. Forget the registry and gift your soon to be mama this. It is a game changer.
You definitely need this!!! I had a generally easy pregnancy and was active throughout but could not have done it without this! I was able to work out, go on walks, and still work my 12 hour shifts at the hospital because of this little gem! Love this so much I purchased 2 and I even am still wearing them postpartum after my C-section for added support. Definitely a must buy!
I am currently 5 wks postpartum and started wearing my baobei leggings at 3 weeks pp. Although it is a little struggle to get on (which is expected), they are amazing. They help keep my clothes looking smooth and they help with my back pain. I definitely feel supported wearing these leggings. I ordered 2 more pairs!
I bought three pairs a few months ago based on a friend’s recommendation and let me just say, she did not steer me wrong! I gave birth to our first baby six days ago, and after I delivered him vaginally and had rested and snuggled with him for a couple hours, I decided to give them a try. I was nervous that they wouldn’t fit so soon after delivery but sure enough they did (although I did have to do some wriggling that initial time). Since then, I have been rotating through my pairs and basically living in them! They work exactly as advertised, offering compression and support in all the right places without being constricting, and are SO comfortable! For reference, I am 5’8 and was 118 lbs pre-pregnancy, 145 lbs the day that I gave birth and went with the XS; I am now 130 six days out and definitely feel like I went with the right size. If there is one item you splurge on for yourself for your postpartum recovery, this should be it!!
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.
Sculpt & Support Maternity Belly Support Leggings - Luxe
I have worn these leggings twice now since my purchase and I absolutely love the rise on them. They are very comfortable and hold my belly in for good support.
These are fabulous. They are very supportive and stay in place. They do help to noticeably relieve my back strain and make me feel supported without adding downward pressure or sliding down all the time. You can find cheaper maternity leggings but the quality of this material and the strength of the support is not something I have found in the average pair of leggings. I’m 5’7” 150lb pre pregnancy and size 6-8, I went with the M as S was a bit tight for me (personal preference for me as I don’t like to feel too constricted, someone else may prefer the snug feel). Definitely recommend these to pregnant folks looking for comfortable bump support.
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!
Wearing in my third trimester currently and will be wearing in the hospital as well as postpartum! Extremely comfortable and smoothing. Perfect amount of support without being uncomfortable. Wish they came in a 3 pack.
The best item for postpartum comfort! I did a lot research for postpartum items to hold my core and aid in recovery. I had a c-section and these bloomers provided me with the much needed comfort and support for daily wear. These are the only panties I wear to bed, they support my belly when laying in my side and don’t cause any discomfort to my c section scar. I highly recommend these. If you are recovering from a c-section, don’t think twice, order a couple pairs! Thank you so much baobei!
Received my bloomers and am in love. I have hip displasia so very few support items help support my belly without irritating my hips. I am so so grateful for your bloomers giving me some relief. Thank you so much ♥️
I put these on immediately when I got them, and the support is just perfect. Instantly some of my back pain was alleviated. There is just enough support but not too much where it feels too tight. I am 30 weeks pregnant and I’ll be wearing these for the rest of my pregnancy, and after baby is born, I think there will still be great support to feel like everything is being “held in.” (If you know, you know!) I’ve already told all my friends about these!
I really love these, but they slide down all the time! The support is amazing when they actually stay up. I also wore them as swim bottoms once, SO cute!
These are really supportive and comfortable - they stay up perfectly (so do the scallop- I ordered both). I'll be ordering more and can't wait until black scallop is back in stock!
I received these in my third trimester and they were beyond comfy! Just enough support without having too much pressure on my belly. I’m currently 8 months postpartum and they are still super comfortable to wear. Nice and simple but great quality all around!
Love these bloomers for my third trimester. The perfect amount of support and while they are thick I don’t find them overly hot even during Texas August heat!
Friends let me just save you the time- I know your wondering if these are worth the money. THEY ARE. After I had my baby I wore these literally everyday. They make you feel human again, they’re so comfortable, and provide the perfect support. They are my #1 recommendation for postpartum mamas. I also love the raw cut edge and the black color hides everything (aka breast milk & spit up).
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!
Honestly so happy that I found Baobei. This kit was amazing as a FTM who had no idea what to expect post delivery. Not only do their products ROCK, their instagram account is full of amazing educational information. I had no idea how much I'd love or need these cold packs. So much less bulky than the huge disposal packs you can get. And the bloomers were amazing support as well. Good thing I have several and could rotate through them to wear 24/7. Cannot recommend enough.
I tend to get plugged ducts with any pressure while nursing so I was worried the pull down nursing style wouldn’t work for me. BUT the straps are so stretchy that it pulls down without putting any pressure on my breast. Also love how stretchy but also super supportive it is. The aesthetic is very cute. I would definitely invest in more.
These are my absolute favorite! I wore them throughout my pregnancy and have been for 5 months so far postpartum. They’re so comfy and great to nurse in! I also love how cute they are. I have it in multiple colors! Definitely recommend.
Just wanted to say I love your bralettes so much.I’m nursing my third babe And I have tried lots of bras and these are THE BEST.
Favorite thing about this product is not worrying about waking the baby in the middle of the night with that “click” sound most nursing bras have! I only have one in the grey color but hopefully I’ll have more one day!
Everyone was raving about these so I decided to get one. Pros: I love the support and the stretchiness. It’s something I feel comfortable going out in and does a bit better about holding the girls up than other nursing bras. I love the pull down feature and it makes nursing easy. Cons: the stitching started to come out after only 3 months of use, and I washed and hang dried it as specified. But the most annoying con was that it does not hold breast pads in place very well. I get the really big kinds but somehow in this bra they end up off the nipple, which defeats the whole point. I’m constantly having to fix them. Overall a good nursing bra, but not perfect.
I didn't know I needed this sweat shirt until I wore it for the first time. I typically wear non-postpartum sweatshirts, but when I breastfeed outside, I get really cold and my belly shows. Having this sweatshirt kept me warm and covered up when it was time to nurse. I was also able to wrap baby up in the sweatshirt to keep him warm and cozy too. I definitely recommend this sweatshirt if you are breastfeeding or pregnant!
I don’t even know where to start other then GET THIS!!!! I got one and then I had to get it in all colors and all sizes so some days I like it loose and big and others I like it more snug. I wear them everyday, they fit great over my bump and are going to be perfect for nursing! You can lounge in them but also dress them up with a fun necklace! They are long so you can wear them with leggings and they cover your behind!!
I have had the grey and blush for over two years now, since I got pregnant with my first baby and still wear them all the time! They are so comfortable, soft and cute and the thumb holes are a win! Newly pregnant again I can’t wait to get even more use out of them and maybe add the black to my collection!
In my early postpartum days I lived in this sweater! It is so soft and comfy. I love that it is long enough to cover your butt and the easy access for nursing. If I did not live in a warmer climate I would own all the colors!
The shirt sheds.
I was looking for something to "smooth out" my tummy without being restrictive, like Spanxs, and I love these! I bought two when they were on sale, and went back for two more. They are really comfortable and exactly what I was looking for! I'm currently pregnant, but will definitely be wearing these again postpartum. It's so nice to finally have something I know is comfortable for after giving birth - I really hated that awkward granny panty phase where nothing looked good or fit! I have the M/L and am usually about a size 12.
I bought these for after my birth when they were having a sale. I would say they are only OK.
PROS: Comfy, soft, high waisted. Perfect for post C-section.
CONS: I was expecting more compression, there is none. I was also expecting more of a cheeky style, these are more like regular underwear. I have some other high waist undies that are very comparable and were much less expensive. Not worth the $$$ in my opinion.
I’m 29 weeks pregnant and these are super comfy! They have just the right amount of compression and are very flattering but beware like most of the bloomers they still give ya panty lines! My only complaint again is like with the other bloomers the little cotton area that your crotch is supposed to be on is very small and placed far back in the undies so it’s more on your bum than your front if ya know what I mean
I was skeptical about these at first. Were they really going to be worth the price (I mean 30 for underwear, really?). But I got the two pack anyway. So glad I did! I had a planned c-section. When I was in the hospital I wore the mesh undies they give you, but by the time I got home, I was out. I put on some undies I didn't care about because I didn't want to ruin an expensive pair with my continued bleeding. Those undies were so uncomfortable and almost painful on my incision. Adore Your Core cheekies to the rescue! I put them on, and literally signed outloud in relief. The fabric is so soft, the "support" was up above my incision so it wasn't putting any pressure on it and held my destroyed tummy in just the right amount. The high waisted style is flattering and hides some of those stretch marks, especially if you have your shirt up to nurse. Make sure to buy two, so you have one to wear while the other is in the wash. Totally worth the money!
I was on the fence about buying these pants for a long time. After having a hard recovery from my 1st pregnancy, I knew I wanted to go into the recovery of my 2nd baby better prepared. After 1.5 weeks postpartum from a C section and following the advice of Expecting and Empowered Postpartum guide, I bought these pants. For the first time in both pregnancies, my belly supported! I wish I had bought the pregnancy band too during my pregnancies. Would definitely recommend these pants. Only thing that would make them better are pockets or else I would buy multiple of these. Advice: purchase these 1 week before or right after giving birth so you have a chance to figure out sizing. I originally bought a small and my 130lb 5’2” frame definitely did not fit a small so I returned and bought a medium.
Love these! I ended up having an unplanned C-section and these were (and still are) AMAZING! Love the high waist and all over compression. I definitely sized up compared to my other BaoBei products and am glad I did (wear a medium ProBump but ordered Large leggings). I am short (5'3") so these fit just above the ankle for me but I love that. Definitely worth it!
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!
