If you suffer from back ache then this medical grade support belt will be a blessing.
Wide and shaped 2-part support belt which helps relieve tension on the lower back and support the abdomen during pregnancy and also after the birth. It is recommended that it be worn all day but not at night. It should be tight enough to provide support but not restrict movement or blood flow.
As this is a new item for us we have asked our long term testers for some feedback:
Rebecca: The white elastic belt is the best maternity support belt I have ever worn, it's comfortable as I am carrying low, I've noticed I haven't had any back ache at all so far so that's a bonus!
India: 1st week: After a few wears I got used to the feeling of the belt, and how I liked it to be positioned. I found it very comfortable and supportive, the only thing I would say is that as my bump is quite low perhaps there should be a slight shaping/curve to the bottom of the belt for the tops of legs.
1st month and on-going use: As my pregnancy advanced and the bump got bigger the belt became much more useful, and is now a staple in my handbag. If I'm going out around town or for a walk etc, then I wear it most of the time as I really enjoy the supported feeling it gives me.
I also 'suffered' from a cluster of nerves being stretched and pressed just above my belly button which came on around 6 months and didn't go for about 8 weeks, which felt like a sharp pain, and the only relief from this was wearing the belt or lying down, so it was great for me at this time.
I still find it a very useful item, and would recommend it to anyone. I have also not suffered from any lower back pain or SPD pain, which could be down in part to the support of the belt.
