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!
