I don’t think anything is the cure all for pregnancy aches and pains that are severe— this is my second pregnancy within two years. I have hypermobility and residual pelvic floor, leg nerve damage and stability issues from my first pregnancy so I didn’t think any support band would fix the issue however this band is extremely helpful in lifting and supporting by belly without putting pressure on my leg like a lot of underwear options. It does roll up my back sometimes and I wish the price point was a little lower or that there was a discount for purchasing more than one at a time. Very pleased so far. I’m 23wks and I feel like this will take me into 40wks.
I just received my support band and so far it’s great. I gave 4 stars because it’s short on me. Yes, I have a long torso, but I’m concerned how it will fit/feel as my pregnancy goes on (I’m 22 weeks now). I would love if they would offer different lengths, maybe a short, average, and long. Overall, it’s great and my back is thanking me!!
This has really helped with my lower back pain. My only complaints are it’s a bit long for me, I’m 5’2” with a short torso and this was not HSA eligible. Not huge complaints
This was an impulse purchase based on one Instagram video I barely watched. I had bought 4 different “support bands” from a variety of brands and none really helped. I am a plus size woman and the typical support band dug into me and made my belly shape very strange. This band is a life changer and I have and will continue to strongly recommend this to all shapes and sizes of mama to be. I like that they have inclusive sizing, as that’s been very hard for me to find. I comfortably wear an XL and I am into my third trimester. It rides a bit when I use the bathroom, but it’s easy to adjust and stays put under my pants (yoga pants). I also really love how it shapes my bump and feels like everything is nice and secure without feeling constricted in any way. I was wearing and washing this almost daily, but yesterday, when I chose to not wear the band, sealed my choice in writing this review and coming here to purchase another band. Yesterday, despite no strenuous movement, basically sitting at my desk all day for work, my ligaments were absolutely fried every time I stood up. I didn’t make the connection until later in the day that it was because I wasn’t wearing this simple seeming band. I was even wearing maternity support yoga pants from another brand when this was happening. Clearly they are no match for the Bao Bei. Now I am a firm believer and will not go a day without it. So do yourself a favor and at least try one band. They ship really fast and efficiently, and the shipping package is even eco friendly. Thank you, Bao Bei.
Runs larger than other maternity brands. I've been an XL through everyone but probably could go with a L on this. Slips and rides up a bit but I think that's due to the sizing. Does give some support but I'd call it medium - a step above a snug long tank.
