This product is okay. But i will say as a "bigger" girl (size 18-20), i have a hard time keeping the belly band from rolling up my back when i sit down and then stand. i'm constantly pulling it down. Thinking maybe it's my bigger than average hips, not sure.
So far my stomach isn't big enough to hold down the band and the constriction on my adbomen is making the nausea worse. I tried using it to hold up my unzipped pants but have gone back to the rubberband method for now. Perhaps I will like it when I grow bigger.
I'm already to bloated for my regular pants, so this work well to let me unbutton them, and hold them up. I can see myself using it quite a bit.
The only comment/complaint that I have is that it doesn't really come with directions or suggestions for usage.
I used Bella Bands all through my first pregnancy. I am not expecting my second child and find that they are coming in handy even earlier than before. I recommend purchasing in all neutrals to match your wardrobe and keep down the cost of maternity clothing.
According to the size chart I could have gone with either a 1 or 2. I bought one of each size and the smaller was was just a bit too tight that it made my morning sickness a little bit worse. The bigger one works perfect & still holds up my favorite jeans!
This is works well even at the 8th month stage when I don't really want to buy even bigger jeans. These have a bit of tummy support and keeps my pants from falling down and it looks like I'm wearing a longer tank top under my shrinking maternity shirts.
LOVED the bella band with my first pregnancy and LOVE it now too! It's great in the first stages of pregnancy when you're streching the use out of your old wardrobe as much as possible and great later on for covering your belly and avoiding exposure.
I LOVE my bella band. It is helping me extend the life of my pre-pregnancy jeans, and makes everything smoother and more comfortable underneath dresses. It feels good to have something snug on my belly as I'm already showing at 9 weeks pregnant!
The bella band does a great job of covering pants fasteners for a smooth look under shirts. However, it did seem to slip up a lot in the back, pushing pants down. Excellent customer service, communication, and return policy though. Thanks!
I just love it!!
I lost mine few weeks ago and I couldn't resist to buy another one.
I bought another brand that was cheaper and believe me, you wont like it as much as the real bellas band. This is why I ordered another one!
I LOVE these bands! I have had the issue of not being able to fit into my favorite pairs of pants and now all I have to do is unbutton them and put the Bella Band over it! It gives me the layered look and I don't look like a slob!
a great way to wear your favorite jeans while pregnant! every pair of maternity jeans i buy are baggy in the thighs, with bella band i can wear my normal jeans and leave the button unbuttoned without anyone else being able to tell.
I'm not quite ready for this yet, but I tried it on with a tighter pair of pants and can see how well it will work. The other reviews I read said you want to have a Bella Band ready as soon as you start showing ... so I'm ready!
I would give this 5 stars if I would have ordered one size bigger than they said. If your curvy, order another size bigger than they recommend. I love what this does for my pants, being able to wear them still but unbuttoned!
I feel like I have to keep adjusting it because it is hiking up frequently. Also, it keeps me warm, which is not such a good thing given the hormones I am currently experiencing. I am hoping that I will grow to like it more.
Its really a very simple design, just extra "spandex" to give support to a growing belly. I use mine when I feel like i'm overflowing out of my clothes, the band gives me more security knowing that all my parts are covered.
I just couldn't find a size that worked for me. The size 3 felt too snug on my belly and seemed to ride up at the hips and yet the size 4 was way to big in the waist and hips. So sad because it looks like a great product!
Love it! I am 5 1/2 mos pregnant and still wearing nearly all of my pre-pregnancy clothes thanks to this band. Looks fantastic. I like this one even better than the lace ones, though I have those and enjoy them as well.
I like the Bella Band; however, I believe it will fit better as I get bigger. I'm only 4 months preggo now, so I have a ways to go. The Bella Band rolls a little in the back, so I constantly have to pull it back down.
The bella band has saved me from buying jeans just for maternity. I can still wear my pre-pregnancy jeans un-buttoned with the bella band in pure comfort! I also use it some days to smooth out my belly button.
LOVE IT !
First it provides some support but most of all for me it allows me to wear a lot of items that I would otherwise not be able to wear. I can not believe I did not have this on my previous pregnancies
Although you have to adjust the band some throughout the day, I feel very comfortable and supported wearing my jeans unbuttoned. I am very glad to be able to wear my pre-pregnance clothes a little longer.
