I am currently 5 wks postpartum and started wearing my baobei leggings at 3 weeks pp. Although it is a little struggle to get on (which is expected), they are amazing. They help keep my clothes looking smooth and they help with my back pain. I definitely feel supported wearing these leggings. I ordered 2 more pairs!
I bought three pairs a few months ago based on a friend’s recommendation and let me just say, she did not steer me wrong! I gave birth to our first baby six days ago, and after I delivered him vaginally and had rested and snuggled with him for a couple hours, I decided to give them a try. I was nervous that they wouldn’t fit so soon after delivery but sure enough they did (although I did have to do some wriggling that initial time). Since then, I have been rotating through my pairs and basically living in them! They work exactly as advertised, offering compression and support in all the right places without being constricting, and are SO comfortable! For reference, I am 5’8 and was 118 lbs pre-pregnancy, 145 lbs the day that I gave birth and went with the XS; I am now 130 six days out and definitely feel like I went with the right size. If there is one item you splurge on for yourself for your postpartum recovery, this should be it!!
I unexpectedly had a c-section, and recovery was very tough for the first week or so. I couldn’t get these leggings on until about 8 days out, but once I did, they were a total game changer. Instead of shuffling around hunched over, I could stand up straight and walk normally at almost my normal pace. They felt incredible. They were hard to get on and off initially and I had to lie down to get them on, but it got easier over time. So, so worth the money! Was 5’2” and 125lbs pre-pregnancy, went up to 154lbs during pregnancy, and started wearing these when I was back down to 136lbs postpartum. Size Small fit perfectly. Cannot recommend these highly enough! They made an incredible difference in my recovery.
I wanted to love these leggings. The compression felt great, but for over $100 I expect more from a quality perspective. I’ve washed on cool with like colors in a lingerie bag and hung to dry three times since I received the leggings. The stitching has come undone in two places on the leggings. I just received my second pair in the mail and plan to return because I can’t justify the cost for the quality.
These leggings are exactly as advertised and totally worth the money. I received a quality product that provides a real hug to the pelvic area without feeling too tight. I was a little apprehensive about buying online without trying on; I'm 5'10, up to around 180lbs at the end of my pregnancy and around 140 pre-pregnancy. The sales staff was very helpful via email. I am now wearing a size Medium about 10 days post partum. I have not washed them yet, but the material seems very sturdy, definitely squat-proof. This was my third pregnancy (all vaginal deliveries) and I wish I would have had these for after my first pregnancy when I had a tough recovery from a significant episiotomy. Thanks to Baobei for making a quality garment for all the fresh Mom's who so need and deserve it! Would definitely recommend.
I was on the fence about buying these pants for a long time. After having a hard recovery from my 1st pregnancy, I knew I wanted to go into the recovery of my 2nd baby better prepared. After 1.5 weeks postpartum from a C section and following the advice of Expecting and Empowered Postpartum guide, I bought these pants. For the first time in both pregnancies, my belly supported! I wish I had bought the pregnancy band too during my pregnancies. Would definitely recommend these pants. Only thing that would make them better are pockets or else I would buy multiple of these. Advice: purchase these 1 week before or right after giving birth so you have a chance to figure out sizing. I originally bought a small and my 130lb 5’2” frame definitely did not fit a small so I returned and bought a medium.
Love these! I ended up having an unplanned C-section and these were (and still are) AMAZING! Love the high waist and all over compression. I definitely sized up compared to my other BaoBei products and am glad I did (wear a medium ProBump but ordered Large leggings). I am short (5'3") so these fit just above the ankle for me but I love that. Definitely worth it!
I was really on the fence about ordering these for myself because of the price, but I am SO glad I did. These are more comfortable than all my maternity leggings, regular leggings, ect. I have ONLY worn these post partum. I had polyhydroamnios and on babys birthday weighed 110 lbs over my normal weight. The amount of swelling and need for core support was unreal after my c section. The compression was exactly what I needed immediately and beyond post c section to help me heal. They are completely worth the investment.
I was so hesitant to purchase these because of the price tag, but I LIVED in the BaoBei belly band through my last 2 pregnancies and know the quality of the company's products. So I decided to get the black crop leggings and am so glad I did! They felt so good after my delivery. I didn't start to wear them until about 2 weeks postpartum to allow my stomach to shrink down a little bit first. But I've been wearing them constantly since then (currently 6 mo PP). The panel is firm and supportive and the leggings are a great fit. I am 5'9" 165# and ordered a M--what I normally would wear pre-pregnancy. I went back and forth several times about whether I should order a M or L, but the M ended up being perfect; I like the snug fit of the panel. I definitely recommend these! The only thing that would make them better is pockets!
So...let me start by admitting that I'm not one to splurge on myself, so I was a little hesitant spending this kind of money on some leggings. I'm cheap, I get it. :) I did, however, take the words of advice from a few other mom-friends who had purchased these and swore by them. I used a new member discount code and saw on Instagram that they were going to offer these in a new darker teal color (Lagoon). Once the new color was released, I got a black pair (goes with anything!) and the Lagoon (truly, beautiful!). I originally ordered a size medium, which is what I typically wear. I'm 5'6" and weigh around 180 at 7 mo. pregnant. Once they came in, I stupidly tried them on...let me tell ya, they're not for a baby belly! Lol. I decided, even with the birth of a child, I probably needed to size up. I'm glad I did, too, because I just got the larges in and they will fit great (snug, but not like a freakin' sausage) once my kiddo arrives. They're a nice, smooth legging and high quality material. I will say that the seam around the pelvic and butt area (kind of their "waistband" area) do sit a bit low, like pregnancy underwear. I'm guessing I'll be grateful for that, should I need a C-section. If you're kind of on the frugal side, like me, get the discount code and don't look back. You'll like these...and they're worth it!
Sculpt & Support Maternity Belly Support Leggings - Luxe
I have worn these leggings twice now since my purchase and I absolutely love the rise on them. They are very comfortable and hold my belly in for good support.
These are fabulous. They are very supportive and stay in place. They do help to noticeably relieve my back strain and make me feel supported without adding downward pressure or sliding down all the time. You can find cheaper maternity leggings but the quality of this material and the strength of the support is not something I have found in the average pair of leggings. I’m 5’7” 150lb pre pregnancy and size 6-8, I went with the M as S was a bit tight for me (personal preference for me as I don’t like to feel too constricted, someone else may prefer the snug feel). Definitely recommend these to pregnant folks looking for comfortable bump support.
As a mama who gets super large during my pregnancies (I'm 5"3 my husband is 6"7 haha so it's so be expected) I have never felt so supported! Feels like my bump is getting a hug! The coverage is amazing, I have never had leggings that covered my entire bump and doesn't slide down with my day to day activities!! I'm very impressed! I would highly recommend these leggings.
I'm giving these 5 stars because they are really awesome and offer a really nice gentle support through the legs and lower belly. I think the fit will work for most bodies during most stages of pregnancy. I did want to note that the size guide is not super helpful. I understand why it's quite vague--everything is stretchy and it's hard to give accurate sizes when bodies, especially pregnant bodies, are all so different. But basing it on pre-pregnancy size seems particularly odd given that every body grows differently during pregnancy. So, in case it's helpful to anyone: I'm 27 weeks, 5'4" and currently 162 lbs. My hips are 42" at the widest part, belly is 36", and rib cage where the pants hit is 32", and the mediums fit me great and will hopefully continue to do so through the rest of this trimester. I will say that if you have a smaller upper body than lower (my rib cage is teeny compared to my hips), the top part of these will not be very tight or supportive. I really wanted compression up there to support my abs separating, and I thought these might do the trick, but alas, they do not. ProBump is probably better for that anyway though!
