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.
I wore these for about 10 days postpartum with my second baby. The amount of core support provided along with the perfect amount of compression is incredible. These are a must for any mama-to-be and I can’t recommend them enough. I just wish I had purchased them for my first baby. Definitely would purchase time and again. Great product!
I wore these bloomers about a week after giving birth. I was very swollen... like my maternity clothes didn’t even fit me. These were supper comfortable to wear under a dress. They look cute too! I almost feel sexy while wearing them.
I love these. I felt supported, and comfortable. They were also cool throughout the day.
I am really loving these bloomers in the 3rd trimester. I am a size small in the bloomers- size 6-8 pre pregnancy, and wear a size M in the Bao Bei post partum recovery crops. They seem like a heavier neoprene material and are extremely supportive without cutting off circulation. Amazing how much better I feel when wearing them bc they keep you in a good position that supports the lower back. I think they are going to be great post partum too!
These are the supportive recovery or pregnancy bloomers you need. They are not tight whatsoever but they do give a nice hugging feeling. I was so worried they would be restrictive like all other postpartum products but no, these are gold. Absolutely worth the money and I can’t wait to wear them postpartum!
I absolutely love Bao Bei!!
Being 6 months pp and one month no longer breastfeeding, the hormones have come to attack. Bloating to the max. My Bloomers have once again come to save the day. The support for my belly and back feel amazing. And I love that I don’t have to keep pulling up my underwear from rolling down. Thank you for a great product!
I really wanted to love these, & even after the great customer service, it just wasn’t meant to be. I ordered one size up and found the bloomers didn’t hug my belly like I would like and the leg holes were tight & was recommended not to get the smaller size. Not to mention, the massive wedgie I would get after just a few minutes of wear. It’s just not ideal for bigger booty women with a smaller waist. I am optimistic that another product from here would be a better for me.
Order a size down if you are looking to feel some more support/tightness. Love the material and the way it feels. Quality wear just wish I would have ordered one size smaller to feel like I’m getting more support!
I got these around 35 weeks pregnant and all I can say is I wish I bought them sooner! They provide the perfect amount of support while being breathable in the warm weather! I can't wait to wear them postpartum.
I gave birth 5 days ago and I have been living in my bloomers since the day we left the hospital (they fit perfectly over top the mesh hospital undies!). They provide the perfect postpartum hug/support without being too restricting. I wish I had these during my first pregnancy. You’ll definitely want to buy two pairs because you will not want to be without while the other pair is in the wash!
These are the perfect amount of extremely comfortable support.. just what I needed for pregnancy #2! I wish I could buy more to have enough to wear every day!
These are very comfortable and a great material, BUT there's less support than I was expecting, and maybe that's due to sizing. I was torn between getting a Medium and a Small. I'm 5'6", 140 pounds pre-pregnancy, about 165 pounds now at 33 weeks. My typical waist size is 28-29, and I usually wear a size 6 or 8 in pants, which is why I was debating the Small or the Medium. I wanted these for postpartum, not for maternity, so I ended up getting the Small, and I'm SO glad I didn't get the Medium!! The Small is great for right now, and surprisingly not too tight AT ALL. I wear a lot of Blanqi support tank tops and I feel like those have more support than these bloomers do, which was really surprising. I might grab a pair of these bloomers in XS since I want the postpartum support, and if the Small fits comfortably now, I'm concerned about how little support they'd provide postpartum.
I bought the black bloomers for my last pregnancy and absolutely loved them for my last few weeks and Into postpartum. They are so comfortable and tight enough to feel like everything is being held in nicely! I love having 2 pairs now for my pregnancy :) I’m normally a size 6 pre-pregnancy and bought size small bloomers.
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 am very pleased with my purchase. Honestly, I am considering purchasing another one for when I need to wash the original. I wear it everyday and it provides the perfect amount of support whether I'm being active or sitting at my desk working.
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 have had these for most of my third pregnancy. I love the idea (and the Pro Bump)! However I do not find these very comfortable. The leg openings seem small and constricting and I find they ride up into my crotch and just aren’t that pleasant to wear. I will definitely give them a try postpartum but overall it was not a good use of $60 for me. I wish I had bought a second Pro Bump instead.
These bloomers are amazing. They are such amazing quality, and provide the perfect bit of support for every day wear. I love the raw cut & hope they will come in some more colors.
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
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.
