I've only used it to help hold up my pre-pregnancy pants so far, but it is amazing! I haven't yet told anyone at work that I am pregnant, so I didn't want to get maternity clothes yet and this band has been my lifesaver--it allows me to keep wearing my same pants, but just opened up a little more at the top for comfort (mostly due to bloating, yay hormones!). The only problem I had with it is that the quality that makes it so good at keeping pants up, also can be a little too much pressure if you have a lot of gas or if your stomach is sensitive to pressure due to morning sickness. However, I really like the BellaBand because it keeps my pants up but is hardly visible while under my clothes. I would recommend this to others.
