Absolutely LOVE this product. If I’m planning to do anything remotely active, I’ve always got this on to support me and my growing love. 💙 I can really tell the difference when I forget it and do something active - usually my back will get tight, my hips will ache etc.
It’s an instant relief, you won’t regret buying it. I’m “only” five months but already big. This helps a lot. I expect to wear it every day soon and not just when working out.
I hadn’t needed anything like this until my third trimester when my belly felt super heavy and pressing on my bladder. It made it hard to go on walks or work out or just go about my day.
I’ve been wearing the support band every day since I got it and it has been a game changer. I feel very supported and lifted, making it easier to go about my day and workouts. It’s soft and comfortable. Yes it’s expensive but the cost per wear is getting lower every day that I wear it. :)
I just received this in the mail today and as soon as I put it on it felt amazing! It is so soft and comfortable, and holds you just in the right places. For reference I am 5'6 and about 180lb (28 weeks pregnant), pre pregnancy weight was 150 (athletic build) , and I ordered a medium. This is my second pregnancy, and my bump is a lot lower and feels a lot heavier! With my first I ordered a Velcro support band that worked okay, but was always sliding up and down and didn't do anything for my upper abs, and this pregnancy I ordered another one with the same issues. I saw this on Instagram (saw it was loved by nurses), which I am one, so I decided to try it and I am so glad I did. I can't stress enough how good it feels. I have had a lot of hip/pelvic pain/pressure this pregnancy and it already is helping relieve some of the pressure and overall heaviness of my baby bump. It has just the right compression. It fits well now, but seems to have enough room to grow. I am really excited about this product, and recommend to any mama's out there that need some belly support! Thank you Baobei :)
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 have tried 3 other maternity/pelvic support bands before trying this one. And this provides relief! It takes the weight and pressure off my pelvis and allows me to function a bit better.
I debated seriously if this product could be with the price and I am here to tell you, yes. Yes it is. Totally takes away back pain I get from doing things like excessive walking or standing. Supportive without squishing you. I’m looking so forward to using this postpartum too. I’m only disappointed I went two pregnancies without this! I plan on getting one for every pregnant friend I have.
This is exactly what I needed. I'm about 31 weeks and this is the perfect support for walks, workouts, etc. I'm really happy I have this to get through the remainder of my pregnancy and can see it being useful postpartum as well.
It is so soft and smooth. It gives the perfect amount of support. After trying it I immediately bought more to stock up on. 100% recommended.
Great quality and holds the bump in! It’s comfortable to wear all day.
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.
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 love this thing. I'm so glad I bought one! I've used a much cheaper version of the same thing before, and it was pointless. This thing relieves lower back pressure in a way I could have never imagined. I can be on my feet for a good portion of an entire day and still feel OK at bed time. 28 weeks and counting, and so grateful for this product!
I was really excited to try this because I've been having sciatic and hip pain during my pregnancy. Similar to a tube bra this thing does really nothing to support my bump. I would compare it to wearing yoga pants over a bump but there is no real pressure support. I also found it to be a little big for the sizing even though I followed the chart listed. I would not buy this again or recommend it to others. The bras are way too small and this was too big, so an all-around bad experience with this shop for me. I had to change my star ratings because 1 star review was HIDDEN from the website = shady shady
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!!
ProBump™ Pregnancy Belly Support Band - Vivid
I have tried three different types of support bands and this one does the best job of taking pressure off of my back lifting my baby boy belly bump up and is overall very comfortable. This is my second baby and I have been having a ton of BH contractions and this band helps me to not notice them nearly as much. It’s a must wear every day for me. I take it off to sleep but am very tempted not to. For reference I am 34 weeks pregnant 5’1 and started this pregnancy a size 0. I was a little worried it might not be tight enough to provide the support I was hopping for, but overall I am just very sad I didn’t buy it earlier. Highly recommend!
I’m almost 33 weeks pregnant, and threw out my back (probably from chasing my other 2 toddlers around). I purchased this support band to see if it would help me get both core and back support while carrying the weight of the baby plus the demands of being a mom of a 1 and 3 year old, and that’s exactly what it does! I feel supported all around, I feel like when I bend over, everything is held together instead of my muscles giving out, and I just feel so strong. This is going to be A part of my daily Wardrobe for the next 7 weeks (and probably after pregnancy too!) it’s worth every penny and I’ll most likely be purchasing another one! Thank you for the amazing, 360 degree support!!!
I’m currently 38 weeks pregnant! I started wearing The probump 37 weeks! I wish I had It sooner! It’s a great form of support really making you feel secure and takes a huge weight off you lower back and lower abdominals. I am personal trainer and it’s helped my workouts so much I recommend wearing the ProBump as soon as your bump makes its debuts! It’s really a game changer.
I am currently 27 weeks pregnant with my third child and wish I had worn the ProBump with my first 2 pregnancies! I am still running and doing HIIT workouts (with modifications as needed) and feel so well supported with the band ( I honestly don't think I could do what I can now without it!) It helps alleviate some SI joint/low back pain I feel with my pregnancies and cues me to contract my core while providing the perfect amount of relief from pregnancy aches/pains. Also- I am a size 0/2 pre-pregnancy and the size small fits perfectly (and I LOVE the new vivid color!), I began wearing it around 19 weeks and when my stomach was a little smaller I would just fold it to provide a little more support. Highly recommend to all pregnant mamas out there!!!
