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.
If you’re thinking about buying it, do it! I’m bummed I only have 2 months to use it. I was having pelvic pressure and just overall feeling uncomfortable when running, walking and even strength training. It literally feels like a sports bra for my bump. I don’t have any pelvic pressure and it takes some pressure off my back! It is so comfortable, I don’t want to take it off!
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.
During my first pregnancy I bought a cheap belly support band as I had abdominal separation and it did not seem to provide much relief. This pregnancy I decided to try this support band and I have loved it so far as it provides so much support and I am only half way through this pregnancy. I highly recommend this support band.
I've been struggling with a hernia and diaphragm tightness in my third pregnancy and this support band has been a life saver!
This is was part of my first Bao Bei purchase and worth every penny. I started using it during my first trimester and still using it at 35 weeks pregnant. I’ve used under my work clothes to go to the office, to workout, to clean the house, to walk, you name it! I’m 5’7 1/2 and my pre-pregnancy weight was 150, so I bought a Medium. It’s a very comfortable and firm band. A must purchase during your pregnancy!
Website said they ship within 72 hours and it took them a week to even acknowledge my order instead, plus I sent them multiple emails asking when it would be shipped and they never responded. It took my husband sending a aggravated email to get any sort of communication. Products are severely over priced, not impressed with the belly band I received and the underwear are uncomfortable. Won’t be purchasing anything else from this company.
Returning for a larger size and hoping that will work. Otherwise, seems like great quality and materials
ProBump™ Pregnancy Belly Support Band - CRÈME
Do not sit on this product like I did! This is my first pregnancy, and I will be 36 when my baby is born. I started struggling around Week 31. My belly, back, and hips just hurt, and I was doing all the things--keeping up with my water, taking warm baths with pregnancy flakes, using some magnesium lotion, etc. While these things do help, the root problem was that the band I was using just wasn't supporting my bump. I got my ProBump in the mail about 30 minutes ago. The relief I felt was instantaneous! After wearing it for 10 minutes, I called my husband while he was at work to tell him how much better I feel wearing the ProBump band. I didn't know I didn't have to be miserable! If you are looking for something to buy a pregnant friend, please buy them this band. The size chart is spot on, too, if you're wondering about the size.
I'm currently 36w pregnant and this band is perfect in almost every way. My primary complaint before wearing this was the constant pressure on my pelvis. I'm happy to report, with this, such pain was immediately alleviated. My primary complaint after wearing this is beyond baobei's control -- baby's movements! Whenever she moves while I'm wearing this, my gosh do I really feel it, and sometimes it's painful! (insert crying emoji). So if you've got a little dancer, be warned, wearing this will emphasize every one of baby's little movements.
Support is okay, but I had a group of peloton moms rave about this for round ligament pain and I don’t feel any different with this versus compression leggings. KT tape has helped more.
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.
I’m so grateful for this item. I used to think pieces like this were luxury items, but really, this is a necessity to help protect your core during pregnancy. (Should have used with my first pregnancy but now it’s a necessity for my severe DR.) I tried getting away with a cheap store brand but this bao bei band is completely different and completely worth the money ..so much more supportive and surprisingly breathable.Thank you for making this product.
I wish I purchased this sooner!! I had purchased the bloomers early in my pregnancy and loved them. I decide some where around 33 weeks to order the pro bump. It arrived and I instantly loved the support I felt. My LO was born at 35 weeks so I didn’t get to use it as bump support for long. This is now an essential in my 4th trimester wardrobe. It helps with back pain, cramping, and core support as I move around. I have loved every product I have ordered!!! Thank you Bao Bei!
Purchased this at 36 weeks pregnant, really wish I would have gotten it earlier on to help support my abs. It has definitely helped relieve my lower back pain and rib pain. Definitely recommend. I only wish it was slightly longer, I’m 5’9”, fits fine but I could handle it if it was just slightly longer
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!!!
