I really like this belly band. I would say it has LIGHT support but also helps keep my maternity pants from falling down too much haha! I do find that as a bigger person (XL) the band feels like it could be a bit longer for comfort and it tends to fold over or slide down. I am happy with it but thought it would be a bit more supportive than it is.
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.
Really like the fit of the postpartum leggings and love how high and supportive they feel. Unfortunately, they are see through at the bum when bending over as I have been informed by my mom and husband. I am a bigger girl (size 10-12 prepregnancy, 12-14 post) and was expecting for price point and the fact they don’t offer larger sizes that they would work even for myself. Won’t be wearing them in public at this rate.
I love these leggings and started wearing them about 3 days postpartum. I am now 7 days postpartum and never want to take them off. These are much more comfortable than the wraps or underwear that I tried. The only reason for 4 stars and not 5 is that they come up a little too high. On me (I'm 5'2''), they come up past the bra line which causes a bunching there, but because there is no band, it doesn't cause irritation. Overall I would recommend to any postpartum mama!
These pants fit amazing and would totally be a 5 if they had pockets. What post partum mom doesn’t need more pockets to store phone or pacifier or anything on the go.
Quality is great, but the sizing is off. I am 5’4 a size 4 and 145 lb right after delivery the M are way too small. The would be wonderful if I could use them.
I wasted a lot of money on other, less expensive brands only to eventually wind up buying several pair of the Bao Bei leggings. I love both the full length and the crops. My only complaint is that I wish there were pockets. Otherwise, the compression and material are great and I love that I don’t need to worry about exposing my stomach in public when breastfeeding (bye bye double shirt method!).
I have the bralettes in a few colors and this black is the best! Love how you can't see anything through it and it can be paired with any shirt. I highly recommend getting this black bralette and one color!
If you’re looking for a comfortable nursing bra that doesn’t dig in or leave marks, look no further. Unfortunately did not find these bras until post partum but wish I could have worn during pregnancy!
They offer enough support while giving you the almost not wearing a bra feeling.
I've always worn bralettes and this is by far the prettiest and most comfy I've ever owned. It's somehow both incredibly stretchy and supportive enough, has a perfect lenght and pretty back. I really don't understand how it can be so comfortable! I'm also nursing and this is PERFECT, just pull it down and your boob is free. I love that it has no nursing clips to deal with and that it has a normal shape compared to most nursing bras, so it fits under everything and doesn't look like a nursing bra. Since I received it I've been wearing it 24/7. I wish it came in more neutral colors so I could wear it all the time, under everything, forever!
At first I was skeptical about this bralette since I had just gotten a soft, sleeper nursing bra from Kindred Bravely. When I initially put it on I didn't think it would be as comfortable, but man oh man I love it! It is so easy to both pump and nurse and actually gives me some support (smaller chested over here). After my first full day wearing it, I immediately ordered another in shell. They go perfectly with the postpartum crop pants - I can literally pull the bralette right over the top lining of the pants and then throw on a long cardigan for a perfectly acceptable outfit to wear in public. Super happy I took the chance on these!
I had originally ordered two other colors very early on in the first trimester of my second (current) pregnancy and I quickly decided that I should order more colors because I loved the stretchiness and support that I felt from them. I now have four colors and I still. want. more!!
These leggings are amazing!! I am pregnant with my third child and my body is definitely different this time around. I have tried SO MANY leggings looking for ones that are truly opaque and I don’t need to worry about snagging. These are it! Even more importantly, they support you in all the right places and come in a beautiful color!
These leggings were part of my first Bao Bei purchase and I strongly recommend them. I’m 5’ 7 1/2 and was 150lbs pre-pregnancy so I got the Mediums which have been perfect for me. I’ve used them since the diary trimester until now at my 35 weeks. Since I got the black pair I have use them for everything from workouts, to hangouts and just to chill at home. If you have the opportunity (or budget) to splurge on one thing during tour pregnancy, get these leggings (or the band)! I also got the post partum ones so I’ll see how I like those.
So surprised these maternity leggings aren't topping more lists as "the best" I am so glad I came across this brand while researching maternity pants.... I literally wear them every day! Looking sleek, feeling supported, these are perfect for fitness or just daily wear. A super comfortable level of compression, these leggings are the only ones I have found that make me feel like I can go on a run or do jumping jacks without my 25 week bump being jostled around too much. Seriously, buy these. I recommend to all pregnant mamas, especially those who are active!
These leggings are worth every penny. I bought one pair and absolutely love them. I will be purchasing at least another pair and looking into postpartum leggings and support as well. So happy these leggings were recommended to me!
these are hands down the best maternity leggings. have diastasis pretty bad with my third here and these are great. they don’t slip down, there’s no tight uncomfortable band at the top to keep them in place. it’s like a gentle hug that’s so supportive. my back feels better at the end of the day. true to size, go with prepregnancy size and don’t size up. the only thing i wish they had were pockets- a mom needs hands free!! otherwise i would give it 5 stars. hoping that’s part of the design soon :)
As soon as I put these on, I knew they were exactly what I needed. They are amazing. I am 16 weeks pregnant with twins and feel like they will provide the much needed support that I need now and throughout my pregnancy. Thank you for making these!
The absolute most comfortable maternity item I own. They make me feel supported and get me through the long days.
I am a CHEAP person. I don't buy things, especially expensive things, often. I normally just make do. These were probably the most expensive postpartum item I bought, but they were the best. Unfortunately I got them a few months after delivery, because COVID stopped production for a while. I reallllllllly wish I had them those first couple weeks. I contracted a light prolapse after birth, and I think if I had had these, there may have been a chance I wouldn't have prolapsed. However, that said, this really helped alleviate my prolapse. The support is as good as people say. It helped to mostly relieve that 'tampon feeling' from my prolapse while my body healed and while I did PT. They were great for my mental health for that reason, and they felt great to wear. The fabric is fantastically smooth. Although I have almost fully healed and my prolapse is asymptomatic now, I still wear them when I know I will be doing a high impact activity, and they make me feel safer because of the support. I ordered a small because that's what I was pre-pregnancy, and even though I got huge and gained 50 lbs while pregnant, these still fit me great early postpartum and have shrunk with me as I lost the baby weight. Definitely recommend. I only needed one pair. I wasn't as big a fan for the bralettes, but the bloomers were definitely worth it. They helped my body along in the healing process.
These bloomers are worth the price! They were my favorite thing to wear when my regular undies started to dig in and my lower back needed the extra support during pregnancy and during the early postpartum days when I didn’t want to wear tight clothing but loved the gentle lift.
I'm so glad I splurged a little and got myself these bloomers. They were the first thing I changed into when we got home from the hospital and I ran out of mesh undies. They are super soft and gently cover my c section incision. The ice packs have been a comfort as well and have helped reduce swelling. I ordered an XL which turned out to fit perfectly; I'm normally a medium or large for pants and undies. My sister in law is pregnant and asked me what I'd recommend for postpartum care, and I told her she HAS to get these bloomers no matter what kind of birth experience she plans on having.
I have not yet had the chance to wear the bloomers as I ordered a size small, but was sent a size XS. Retuned them and waiting for a refund.
Pre pregnancy 145 lbs, 5’9”, dress size 4 sometimes 6. got a size small, they are a bit tight around my legs, and tend to roll down on my pregnant belly. Maybe I will like them more for postpartum. I wish I had gotten the same color as my pro bump so I could wear them together and have them match. I really love the pro bump and these seem just ok, but I might like them better for recovery
For reference, I am 5'1, 185lbs, 29 weeks. I followed the sizing guide and got 2 large bloomers but they are so big that they are constantly falling down my belly and there is an odd bunch of extra fabric on each side of my butt. It's my own fault for not going with my gut and returning both pairs, and I took the sticker off of one pair thinking that I can use them closer to delivery. I am returning the other large pair for a medium and hoping those are a better fit for now and after baby.
Besides the sizing issue, I like how these are really high wasted and thicker material. Hopefully the medium size gives me the "hug" feeling everyone is talking about.
I used to ask my husband to hug me from behind and support my pregnant belly in doing so and it was always the best relief for the few seconds he’d do it but now these bloomers feel like that all day and it’s the best!!
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 love this bra as it is so comfy during pregnancy! My frame is small and my breast filled up with milk, so I got the XS/SM and it fits perfect!
