This was recommended to me by my physical therapist and it's great! Very comfortable because it is all one piece and provides a good amount of support. I appreciate that you can use it post partum too.
I went through two Velcro support bands before I bought my ProBump. I’ll admit that I was hesitant because it doesn’t look very supportive, but it was amazing! I was able to do a 2 day conference on my feet the whole time in it without pain at 24 weeks and kept doing 2 dance classes up until 32 weeks (week before I went into labor) with it. I only wish that it had been around for my first pregnancy too!
I’m not going to lie, I was a little hesitant purchasing this because it’s not exactly cheap. I’ve tried many belly bands and as a farmer, none worked. This band is amazing! It gives me support and is comfortable to wear all day long on the farm! Couldn’t recommend it more!
ProBump™ Pregnancy Belly Support Band - Black
I do love it. Very supportive. However I haven’t figured out how to get it to stay in place while I workout. I do CrossFit so burpees and running make it slide up. For everyday wear it is fabulous.
Great quality and holds the bump in! It’s comfortable to wear all day.
I wish I had bought this with my first! I had awful round ligament pain from the second trimester on, so this time I wasn’t taking any chances. I wear it all day! From running after my toddler to working 10
Hour days on my feet...it gives me the support I need to make it through the day! I will be buying another one soon!
This belly band was recommended to me by a pelvic floor therapist. It fits snug and helps when walking down hills but overall it is a bit hot if you live in a warmer climate. Mine unfortunately has seams starting to fray/come apart and after emailing back and forth with customer service it looks like they will ship me a replacement if I send mine back first but since I need it currently for walking I don't have time to send back because I am nearing my due date. Customer service takes about 48 hours to reply but I have gotten a response every time. I also recommend adhering to their recommendations on sizing. I got a small which is the right size. Currently 5'2 about 152 lbs and 8 months pregnant.
ProBump™ Pregnancy Belly Support Band - Blush Pink
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.
These are the second pair of bloomers I purchased from Bao Bei because they are WONDERFUL! I’m currently 5 weeks postpartum after a repeat c-section delivery, and I wish I had these after my first c-section delivery. It’s the perfect amount of compression to make everything feel supported in my belly and pelvic floor, and it didn’t irritate my incision at all. I actually bought two pairs so I can commit one to wear as swimsuit bottoms - I love how they smooth out my fresh postpartum belly!
Absolutely pure magic but I definitely recommend going down a size so that there are actually supportive I also have a long torso so unfortunately they hit right below my belly button
Maternity & Postpartum Bloomers - Scallop Edge Black
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.
Super helpful for the final trimester and supporting your lower back/bump through activity.
I am a physical therapist and am 23 weeks along in my 2nd pregnancy. Pre pregnancy I am 105 lbs. Currently I am 125 lbs and the S/M is not comfortable. I love the idea of the product, the quality is great, but I feel like the sizing is challenging. Don't get me wrong, I've loved all the products that I've gotten from Bao Bei but I've also had to eat some $ as I feel like I am normally squarely in the S/M range but have been more comfortable in the L range throughout my pregnancies.
Wish I had purchased the band sooner, after consistent wear for a couple of days, my round ligament pain went away (29 weeks at the time )
I really prefer a slim profile stretchy support band for under my clothes and this fits the bill. Compared to others I have tried it is both more supportive but also more comfortable because it doesn’t put pressure on my bladder - yay. Great support for exercise (I do moderate to vigorous spinning, and resistance training,). I just wish there were a silicon band around the bottom, as when wearing over the bump style maternity pants underneath the Pro Bump it does have a tendency to slide up and out of place frequently
I am 27 weeks now and have started to feel some aches and pains, putting on this band instantly makes me feel a little more supported! Agreed with a previous reviewer, it's like a sports bra for the belly!
This is an amazing support band. It comfortably holds your belly tight enough to relieve some pressure but not feel overwhelming! It doesn’t ride up at all and stays in place :) it feels amazing for third trimester!!!
just get it. get your prepregnancy size and you will NOT be disappointed. my back pain, leg pain, and round ligament pain has improved.
I bought this third trimester and wish I had had this my whole pregnancy! Greatly reduced back and hip pain, helped me feel more supported while standing and chasing a toddler and it's perfect for support while working out!!
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.
These literally helped me feel “put back together” postpartum
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!!
Too small on the bottom, and loose on the belly.
At 29 weeks pregnant these give nice support to wear under my scrubs while working 12 hour shifts! My only complaint is that the cottons area where your crotch is supposed to be is short and placed far back in the bloomers for me? So it covers my bum more than my front if ya know what I mean. Wish it was a little longer/ more to the front of the undies for hygiene purposes because I’m now wearing regular undies under these!
I had the black bloomers and loved them postpartum! I wear them everywhere. They make me feel supported in the abdominal area and even sexy since I can't fit into any of my clothes! I also wear them when I go swimming in the kiddo's pool. You will feel so good and vibrant when you wear these! I can't say enough about them.
