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 must have for anyone who is pregnant. It helps with DR, back pain, and is comfortable. Forget the registry and gift your soon to be mama this. It is a game changer.
You definitely need this!!! I had a generally easy pregnancy and was active throughout but could not have done it without this! I was able to work out, go on walks, and still work my 12 hour shifts at the hospital because of this little gem! Love this so much I purchased 2 and I even am still wearing them postpartum after my C-section for added support. Definitely a must buy!
ProBump™ Pregnancy Belly Support Band - Blush Pink
My pre-pregnancy size is 0/2 but XS is not offered so in ordered the SM. I’m 15weeks was was hoping for some extra support for my Orange Theory classes, but I tried it out this morning and it slide down or rode up the whole time...the top band is loose. Maybe my belly just isn’t big enough yet, but I was really hoping for some extra back support now and saw rave reviews, so I had big hopes! This band didn’t deliver for the price!
I’ve sworn by this band for two pregnancies now. It is the only way I survive pregnancy. I wore it to comfortably hike on my due date, to play with my toddler, to workout, to function. I tell every pregnant friend they need this.
I ordered this band after getting a few recommendations. I am a big runner and started having round ligament pain at about 17 weeks pregnant while running. I ordered the band and received in the mail about a week later. I actually woke up the next morning after receiving the band with some bad round ligament pains from however I was sleeping. I put the band on and had INSTANT relief. I was amazed. Not only does this band help while running but I now wear it just walking around! Couldn't be more thankful to have found this product.
I am 38 weeks pregnant with my 9th baby. This is my first time to use the belly band and I cannot give it high enough praises. I would be so uncomfortable right now without it. I was a small when I got pregnant but knowing how big I get I ordered the medium. It has given me the perfect amount of support. Takes away my back and belly pain. It’s a little miracle for which I am very grateful.
30 weeks pregnant and walking 3mi/day, doing pregnancy safe weight routine and yoga. The band is really helpful for back support and as a reminder to keep my abdominals engaged when appropriate. It’s helpful for stabilization and general comfort. It’s helped with pelvic discomfort as well. It’s helped me maintain activity during pregnancy which I appreciate very much.
I was diagnosed with SPD (pelvic separation) my first pregnancy and struggled to be comfortable in my velcro support band. My SPD pain arrived MUCH sooner with my second pregnancy and I am so grateful to have found the ProBump!! I've been wearing it non-stop since I got it. It's easy to layer over or under whatever you're wearing and it's actually comfortable. You can sit down and stand up without it pinching or having to take it off, unlike a velcro one. I'm a size 12-14 pre-pregnancy with a long torso and wearing a medium (after asking for help with sizing) at 30 weeks. I've got a large for my last few weeks of pregnancy. Honestly, it's making the difference between being able to function vs. not.
This is the best purchase I made my entire pregnancy. I can't believe I survived the first 24 weeks without this game changer! At 34 weeks now, it's perfect for working out, days I'm out and about, and when I need extra back support. I wish I had another! Highly recommend this to all mamas!
If you love working out while pregnant, or just need round ligament pain relief... you seriously need to buy this!! It’s so comfortable but I can tell it’s taking most of the weight off my back. Being 33 weeks, I’ve been so glad to have this! I’m glad I’ll have it for our next pregnancy as well, it’s made to last!! Love this company and own MANY products.
I ordered the band after researching several other brands for several months. I went by the sizing guide of ordering your pre-pregnancy size four tops that would be a medium for me. The first couple days I thought the band fit great. However the longer I wore it the more wrinkled it was so tight it was riding up on me. Considering I'm due in July and have 3 months left I don't see this being feasible to wear long term. Knowing I will just continue to get bigger! I also realize it's supposed to be it tight fit but not so tight you can barely get it off some days. Now I'm really frustrated because it was quite a large purchase and now I need a bigger size and I can't return it...
I wore this support band through hundreds of workouts. I am fitness instructor and also used it during my personal workouts. It help me prevent aches and pains and I could definitely tell the difference when I didn’t wear it. I was using it so much that I had to wash it and dry it every day and it still held strong. If I get get pregnant again I’ll definitely buy another one.
This band was recommended to me by two of my pregnant mama friends and I’m SO glad they shared this amazing product! The band provides great support without being uncomfortable, too tight, or bulky. Aside for the extra lift and support I feel, I almost forget I even have it on!
I ordered a size small and it fits great. Currently in my third trimester (32 weeks), 5’7” and current pregnancy weight of 170lbs. The small fits great and feel confident there is room for my growing belly.
This is my third pregnancy. First time with this belly band and OH MY GOODNESS. I've had it for my 3rd trimester and it has helped so much. Just the right amount of support and it is not too hot in these hot summer days. I worked as a RN throughout both my prior pregnancies and very much wish I would have had this support for those long shifts. Thankful to have it now, especially as I continue to actively workout. Currently 37 weeks.
ProBump™ Pregnancy Belly Support Band - COCO
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!!!
Currently 20 weeks and right now feels great and supportive and stays put. Although I am unsure whether or not it will carry me to the end of my pregnancy to be honest. I purchased my pre-pregnancy size (S) but this is my 3rd pregnancy and while my weight gain has been the same between all, my stomach is much larger than I was at 20 weeks with my first pregnancy. I cannot see how I can get another 20 weeks out of the band, maybe 8-10 weeks at best. I also noticed the size chart printed on the product packaging is different than what is online.
