    amazing product! best buy ever, 6m pregnant and still no need for maternity trousers and spare space in the bandeau for quite a few more centimetres of growth:)
  • review score 5 Victoria pack on 21 July 2016
    Works with all my button trousers and jeans. Comes up quite large though - I might buy size small and move into the medium as I grow!
  • review score 4 Nicola on 07 July 2016
    Very helpful accessory and I'm please with it. Shame the button thread has started to fray already since I've only had it a couple of weeks and it hasn't been washed. Can easily be fixed though.
  • review score 5 Lisa Jean on 27 June 2016
    Great bump band. Has allowed me to stay in my jeans for much longer than I could otherwise have done. Very comfortable and supportive. Great to be able to button into the band for security. As other reviewers have mentioned it would be nice to have an attachment at the back too as sometimes the back of the jeans slips down a little but most bands have no attachments at all so this one still wins.
  • review score 4 Tessa on 24 June 2016
    I'm not quite big enough to fill the band out yet but it works fine if I roll it half way. Comfy and fabric seems good quality - a little bit too thick for a holiday in Greece I have discovered!! The only drawbacks are the buttons and the back - the buttons are too small for the button holes in the two pairs of trousers I have worn it with and I'll have to replace them somehow or they slip out, and the back seems too large and rides up. I'm going to try and fashion something to attach it to the back belt loop on my jeans but haven't fathomed quite how yet.
  • review score 5 Nic Ryder on 24 June 2016
    What a fantastic product, I was going on holiday and as I was only 14 weeks pregnant I wasn't big enough to be in full maternity clothes. With this band I was able to comfortably wear my regular cropped trousers, shorts and holiday clothes for the two weeks that we were away. I'm sure that I will still be using this for weeks to come
  • review score 5 Claire on 29 April 2016
    Fantastic addition to an early pregnancy wardrobe. Remarkably easy to use and comfortable! I bought the size 10 in black. I am usually a size 10 and even with a small bump appearing, it fits very well with plenty of room to grow.

  • review score 1 Lost the button first time I wore the bandeau on 27 April 2016
    Although the product is quite good, I lost the button provided on the first day I put it on. There should be a more secure way to keep the button attached, I did not even realised it was not fixed. So I would buy a different brand with an attached button instead.

  • review score 1 Susan betts on 20 April 2016
    The fit was ok but the button holes seem too large for my trousers and I was always worrying about it popping out.
    I didn't like how the back kept riding up and I'm constantly needing to adjust it back under my trousers to stop flashing! Not great when it would ride up at the front too!
    I tried wearing it different ways, over the front, tucked into the trousers, but it would always ride up and expose my back and belly.
    Great idea just needs to be more secure.
  • review score 4 b on 14 April 2016
    I have found this really useful, especially in the early weeks. However, I have found that it slips up at the back - i just fastened it to my belt loops on my jeans with a safety pin - this might change as the baby grows.
  • review score 3 Ann on 13 April 2016
    Nice quality item, and it has been useful. I bought small but its slipping a fair amount. Its a shame as I really need it to cover up normal work trousers that won't do up! I'm 5" 3 and 18 weeks with a still small bump. Suspect it will be a better fit in a few weeks.
  • review score 5 Jo on 12 April 2016
    Brilliant bump band, I'm back in my pre-pregnancy trousers that I thought would be lost to me for at least another 6months! Really comfortable and easy to use.

  • review score 5 Kate on 17 March 2016
    Now bought these bump bandeaus in black and in white. Really useful as an interim step between normal jeans and maternity jeans. Their nice snug fit means you're comfortable and well covered, no flashes of anything you don't want seen! The buttons are handy too, but I tend to use them without as I find its easier to fold the jeans/trousers underneath for a neater, less lumpy finish. These are really useful bits of kit, I certainly recommend. I am normally a size 10 and found small the correct fit for me.
  • review score 5 JW on 11 March 2016
    I really like my bump bands. Nice and thick stretchy material which feels robust. I'm currently wearing them over my regular trousers that don't do up and they work a treat. They also feel soft and supportive and I am predicting I'll be making a to of use of them as my bump expands and needs some comfort. Good price for the quality.
  • review score 4 Catherine St-Gelais on 04 March 2016
    Works well with my work trousers! I also intend to use it to cover my belly during breastfeeding. The only downside is that it does not help keeping my maternity jeans in place during early preganancy, as advertised. It is not quite tight enough however my bump will be growing in the next few weeks so the problem might resolve.
  • review score 5 Anna on 02 February 2016
    This is a great quality and comfortable bump band. I would definitely recommend it.
  • review score 5 Sarah on 02 February 2016
    This has been a great bridge between 'normal' clothes and maternity wear so far. Comfortable and easy to use!
  • review score 5 Jen on 19 January 2016
    Website was straightforward and easy to use, prompt delivery. I ordered the bump band after a friend told me how useful and comfortable they are. I would recommend them.
  • review score 5 Rachel on 18 January 2016
    I'm usually a size 10, so I ordered the bandeau in Small. It's quite big, there's definitely place to fit in my growing bump! Wouldn't be able to wear until I have a considerably big bump though, as it sizes rather big. That said, lovely quality, with buttons made to fit on your trousers. Soft to the touch.
  • review score 4 A Murphy on 13 January 2016
    Really impressed with this product, will come in handy! After reading some of the other reviews, I was a little concerned it would be on the big side. However a small seems fine for me (usually 8-10 & just into 2nd trimester).
  • review score 4 Kate on 29 December 2015
    I'm happy with my band. It washes easily and is a good way to make your existing clothes flexible and last a little longer. The only issue for me is that the band is a bit big even though it's a small, but I'm too big for my normal clothes :-( and I'm not tiny!
  • review score 5 Vi on 21 December 2015
    Great product! I am size 8 -10 ( 20 weeks pregnant) and have ordered small but is a bit big but in a few weeks it will be ok. Good quality and worth the money
  • review score 3 Lulu on 01 December 2015
    I quite like this, but don't buy it if you think you can button your trousers to it - the button is quite flimsy and somehow it doesn't quite work. So three stars.

    Nice fabric and it is quite supportive though so not a dead loss.
  • review score 5 Julie Adams on 27 November 2015
    I am 100% satisfied with the bump band that i bought, as it really helps for that in-between sizes stage of pregnancy. I dont feel the need to rush out and buy martinity wear just yet as the bump band may just get me through the next couple of months. This one in particular is especially good, as it fixes onto the buttons of your trousers, so feels really secure. Great product and would highly recommend.
  • review score 4 Gemma on 22 October 2015
    I am only just starting to grow out of my normal clothes and haven't used this in earnest yet but they are good quality fabric and look useful. Due to previous reviews I bought two-one in a smaller size than the chart recommends based on my dress size and at the moment at least the smaller is the more useful one. Also agree that something to help keep the back of your trousers up would be helpful but overall happy with the purchase.
  • review score 5 Anna on 18 October 2015
    Really handy for the in between phase! I found this very handy so I could wear my usual clothes for a good while longer until actual maternity trousers started to fit me. Absolutely worth the money, I'll probably keep wearing it for extra warmth under my clothes during the cold months.
  • review score 3 Rebecca Moyle on 08 October 2015
    I don't really like the way this fits as my trousers seem to fall down at the back. The small is the right size for me and I was a size 12 pre-pregnancy.
  • review score 5 R L Mcritchie on 07 October 2015
    Wow! Best £15 spent ever. Really happy that @ 23 weeks I can still wear my normal work trousers with this band over them. Really comfy and gives me a great shape too :)
  • review score 5 Cindy on 03 October 2015
    Love the bump bandeau! I can wear all my skirts/jeans/trousers still as I'm not quite big enough for maternity clothes. Only complaint is that I still find it a little too big as was previously a petite size 6. But a fantastic product.
  • review score 2 Aitch CJ on 30 September 2015
    I'm not convinced. Read all the positive reviews and thought this must be worth getting. Tried it with normal jeans and under-bump maternity jeans for extra coverage but it kept slipping up off my hips. Definitely needs a button loop in the back to secure it to belt loop on normal jeans. Can't recommend it as it didn't work for me.
  • review score 4 Lucie on 22 September 2015
    The band is quite useful to make your trousers and jeans last longer into pregnancy. I started using from week 16. However, it could be improved by some sort of connection to the back of trousers - it does feel a bit like you're going to expose yourself at any minute! Also, I tend to wear high waist jeans and it is less effective on those, but for mid rise/low rise it works very well.
  • review score 5 Mel on 15 September 2015
    Very handy, the button and buttonhole mean you can attach this to trousers securely. It has occasionally risen up at the back, but better than any alternative I found.
  • review score 5 Julie on 12 September 2015
    Really nice product, material is very nice, I got the small and it seems a good fit for me (usually a size 10). Haven't quite needed to use it 'in anger' yet (approx week 12 and most of my clothes are generally not tight fitting) but expect to in the next week or two, so I am pleased to have it handy!
  • review score 5 Chrissie on 22 August 2015
    Brilliant product when jeans are getting tight but your bump is not big enough for maternity clothes. I'm 16 weeks. Sizes are generous, but small is fine for me and I'm a size 10-12

    Very useful in early pregnancy with my third child as my trousers quickly felt too tight but I wasn't ready for maternity clothes. I am wearing it every day at the moment. I'm a size 12/14 and small has fitted.
  • review score 5 carly on 07 July 2015
    I purchased at 10.5 weeks jeans still fit me but only just I found I don't like anything touching my stomach so thought a soft band would help,I'm a curvy 16 and purchased a medium it still seems a bit big as back of my jeans still fall down so is very frustrating,I'm sure as I grow it will be more useful to me.
  • review score 4 Paula McGoveney on 26 June 2015
    Great product - love how it has button holes and buttons so you can carry on wearing your non-maternity trousers for a bit longer.
  • review score 5 Anna on 22 June 2015
    This is the first bump band I've bought as a first time mum-to-be (at 18 wks) as I wanted to invest in one that sounded like it really worked. The button / buttonholes work really well and keep the front of my non-maternity trousers in place and offer good coverage. However, I've found that my trousers still tend to slip down at the back a bit, and to make the bandeau even better, it would be great to have the option of a clip at the back to hook through the belt loop. I am normally a size 12 in trousers and ordered a small, so it may be riding up as it's a bit on the small side (apparently small = 8-10), but any bigger and I'm not sure it would do the job. All in all though, the button feature works well and I feel it does the job so still think this was a really good investment to get a bit more life out of my trousers and my shorter, non-maternity tops!
  • review score 3 jess on 17 June 2015
    I'm 16 weeks and like others I found this a bit big even tho I bought the smallest size but will keep it as I naturally will continue to chub it on. Still hoping it will work with my regular trousers...if it does will get more.
  • review score 5 Gemma Lord on 15 June 2015
    The bump band is the perfect early pregnancy product, helping me to keep wearing my normal trousers but giving my ever expanding tummy room to breathe! I'm a 10/12 and needed a small, the medium were a little big on me. Can't recommend this product enough, I'd bought a few and my jojo version is by far the best quality and value for money!
  • review score 4 Tricia on 21 May 2015
    These are great for the early stages, when your trousers are a bit tight but the bump isn't quite big enough for maternity trousers. Also great for getting more use of regular tops that are not quite long enough.
  • review score 5 Lindsay Tomei on 28 April 2015
    Fantastic addition to my maternity wardrobe. My friend leant me hers, I used it every day. So nice not to have to go and buy a whole new wardrobe. I have since bought one for my friend who is now expecting. I found it wasn't so good with jeans but great for work and linen trousers.

    Just started using this at 17 weeks & so much comfier! Definitely a good investment!
  • review score 1 Andrea on 11 March 2015
    This is alright. The fit is quite big. I'm an 8/10 and a small is too big. It is also very thick so if you want to fold it over, you have a very large bulge under your shirt. If you wear it fully pulled up, it doesn't fit flush to your skin. I have since bought much better ones for half the price elsewhere - they don't have the button system but they hold my pre-pregnancy jeans up even better than this one and they are snugger and less bulky. I wouldn't recommend this one.
  • review score 5 J Stewart on 23 February 2015
    So glad I bought one of these, I was worried as some of the reviews online dont do the band justice.
    I'm 15 weeks with 1st baby and i can still fit in pre-pregnancy skinny jeans (27/28 inch waist, bought a small bump band just can't button them and the bump band means i can attach the button on the band to my jeans and still wear them! A godsend!! Don't worry about the bad reviews the button comes off so you can move it suit the jeans you're wearing. Will definitely be buying another band in a different colour

  • review score 4 Jane on 28 December 2014
    I thought I should write a follow up to my review in November as I have been using the band more, and figured out there are two sizes of adjustment you can use which makes it more useful. I still find myself pulling up the back of my trousers a bit, but have used it quite a lot with my usual jeans and other trousers and it has definitely meant I can wear them for longer, plus it is comfortable.
  • review score 5 Ceilidh on 21 December 2014
    Great product, bought when I was around 15 weeks has helped me to continue wearing my own trousers and more importantly my skinny jeans. Band very comfortable over bump and keeps me and bump cosy. Ordered small and I'm at 12 so agree may come up a bit big.
  • review score 5 Hannah Marshall on 20 November 2014
    Really comfy and practical, especially for Winter bumps! A lot more substantial than any of the ones I've found elsewhere. I'm a size 10 waist and the small size fits perfectly and accommodates a growing bump well. Worth buying two in different colours at the same time for the £5 discount.
  • review score 3 Jenny Mason on 19 November 2014
    I bought a small as I'm a UK 10 and fit is ok, will some room for growth. Weird double button thing fell off on first use and I can't work out how to make it work or sew it back on! Works well with jeans button though on the otherside. I agree with others here, I spend alot of time pulling up the back of my jeans as this band doesn't hold them up at all.
  • review score 5 Sam Boyce on 19 November 2014
    Comfortable and comforting. This has allowed me to wear pre pregnancy jeans whilst maternity jeans are still too big. I love the secure feeling the bump band gives. Definately recommend it as an essential maternity item.
  • review score 3 Jane on 12 November 2014
    The Jury's out - definitely comes up large so I bought a small one and I am probably a 12 at the moment and it's easily big enough - but will grow with me. It seem like a good idea, but there is no adjustment in terms of how far apart the button and hole are - this means that at 1o weeks pg and therefore only a bit big for my trousers, the settings are a bit too far apart and I found my trousers falling down / having a really saggy bottom. It's comfortable, and am hoping is more useful when I get bigger. Also, I would only wear under baggy tops as the silhouette you get is very bumpy and you could probably see that your trousers are open from the bumps (obviously it covers you up, just the bumpiness)
  • review score 5 Sonja on 14 October 2014
    Took a bit of getting used to- but finding these helpful worn over skinny jeans which I can no longer do up at all! Not sure how long they'll last for as bump seemed to be big from week 6- but it's making my normal clothes more comfortable in the mean time.
  • review score 5 Julie on 12 October 2014
    I bought two of these in size medium (I am normally around size 12, sometimes bigger around the waistline). I am really disappointed as they don't hold my trousers up and I spend the whole time pulling them up. Waste of money. I must be a strange shape. Had similar problems getting trousers to stay up during my first pregnancy and someone told me bands would help. They haven't.

  • review score 5 Cosmina Cross on 21 August 2014
    This is a great little gadget that can save you lots of money, especially in early pregnancy when you're still reluctant to wear full on pregnancy clothes. You can still wear your favourite trousers until your hips are too wide to fit it. I love it.
  • review score 4 Hannah on 05 August 2014
    Excellent! Means I can wear my favourite jeans and trousers for ages! The build in button and button-hole is what others are missing!

    I was quite excited when I got it but on wearing it for just one day realised it's not really a great investment..it did not hold.my stretchable pre-pregnancy jeans. The button holes were too large. The buttons were threaded in a flimsy way. I wish it had some way of staying with the jeans all the time like some loops for belting with the jeans.

Great product, every pregnant mum to be should get one! The most difficult decision is which colour to buy!

    I bought a navy bump band this weekend after suddenly feeling my bump pop out, it seems! I wear a lot of tunic dresses and leggings but was finding that some of my t-shirts were riding up, leaving my bump cold and needing a bit of support. I tried on this as well as the more supportive band, and decided that the bump bandeau was all I needed for this stage (I'm 22 weeks). Recommended.

    I bought the large size as a size 18 and find it to be a touch loose at the top but I think because I am early in pregnancy (12 weeks) so my bump will grow into it! Its fab for wearing over jeans ans trousers that you can no longer do the buttons up on
  • review score 0 Rachna on 04 September 2013
    Liked the product. The small is a bit big for me (I am size 10 bottom and with a 20 weeks neat bump), so while on some days this band provides support to my stretching tummy, on others it is just sitting around my waist. I like wearing it over my pre-pregnancy jeans as it is no longer comfortable to button them up!

  • review score 0 Anna on 06 August 2013
    I've just purchased these and am so pleased with them. Looking forward to the life of my wardrobe being extended. I highly recommend the advice on here about the sizing. I went for the medium (typically 16 on the high street) and the medium feels generous. Obviously there needs to be plenty of room to grow but at 11 weeks clothes are getting tight and I can't bear the pressure on my tummy, it makes the nausea worse!

  • review score 0 Angela on 10 July 2013
    Great idea, especially with the buttons. Comfortable and plenty of stretch. However, it is VERY generous in the sizing - my high street size is anything from a size 16 up, but I had to exchange the Large (16-18) for a Medium (12-14). Without much of a bump yet, the Large didn't have the snugness to hold up a pair of undone jeans, which the medium does better while still having plenty of space for a growing bump.
  • review score 0 RS on 04 July 2013
    This has been a great purchase, and let me continue in normal trousers for longer. The special button was missing the first time it was sent but after a bit of faff I was sent another and posted the original back. Worth the money, & the band can be folded over double to make it tighter while you're still not very bumpy.
  • review score 0 Vanessa Craig on 01 July 2013

  • review score 0 EA on 17 June 2013
    After reading rave reviews online (and having problems finding maternity jeans that fit properly), I was really excited to receive my JMB bump bandeau. It's a lovely product, however, has a been a tad disappointing.

    I'm 24 weeks gone and normally a size 10, I ordered the small size but it still feels too big. It's made of lovely soft cotton, which feels great but by the end of the first day of wearing it felt stretched and out of shape. It also doesn't do an amazing job of holding my jeans in place.

    The lovely breathable cotton is technically really nice, but it would be good if it had a bit of stretch in it (lycra mix?) to help keep it in place. Or perhaps if it was slightly hour-glass shaped with a 'top' and 'bottom' rather than just a rectangle, as it's quite loose and 'flappy' at the top, so doesn't sit smoothly under other clothes.

    Overall, it's a lovely product and a useful buy for putting under loose tops to extend the longevity of your regular clothes, but wasn't the all-singing, all-dancing solution to ill-fitting maternity jeans that I was hoping for.

    NB - this is only my personal feelings re. my own body shape, and sure it works wonders for other women.

    Nice product, the small is perhaps a little big for me (I am a petite size 8-10 and 20 weeks at the moment) but it folds over nicely to help keep my pre-pregnancy trousers up!

    This is a great addition to your maternity wardrobe to extend the life of your trousers and skirts. I'm usually a size 8 and the small is a bit too big (I'm currently 22 weeks) but it probably won't be for long!

    Fantastic! Makes it possible to wear pre-pregnancy trousers much longer am currently 17 weeks with second baby usually size 8/10 ordered a small and is a little big at the moment but can be folded over and feels secure all day in work. Wish I'd bought one during first pregnancy.

    Great to wear with regular jeans and trouses. I wear it with my work trousers. It helps a lot as I found difficult to get nice and not very expensive maternity work trausers.
  • review score 0 Sarah on 26 April 2013
    I didn't get one of these in my first pregnancy and regret it. I have already used it lots in my second pregnancy. Great for the early days when trousers can feel a little tight but you are no way near big enough for maternity trousers. I also think it will be useful for after the birth when your inbetween maternity wear and your old jeans.
  • review score 0 L Fairweather on 23 April 2013
    I can see how this will be handy when I have more of a bump, but it does nothing to prolong the length of time I can wear my non-maternity jeans. Maybe my jeans are just too low cut, but the band doesn't hold them up in any way, and they fall down as soon as I walk - the only benefit is that the band hides that the zip is undone
  • review score 0 V Covey on 20 April 2013
    Useful band which has meant I can wear my pre-pregnancy trousers for a bit longer. However, the buttons are a bit big so don't always fit fittings on trousers. Also, if your top isn't long enough or needs adjusting, people can tell you have your flies undone!
  • review score 0 Amelie on 18 April 2013
    Best buy ever! I'm 17 weeks, expecting twins and maternity trousers are still a bit too big.
    I'm a size 12-14 normally and the size M is perfect: i can wear my usual trousers and jeans and fold the top away, so there's still loads more room for my bump to grow into!
  • review score 0 Aimee Webb on 09 April 2013
    I am so thrilled with my new band allowing me to fit into my own designer jeans for a few more weeks!! It's also really comfortable and in this cold weather an extra layer to keep me and the little bump warm.
  • review score 0 Annika on 08 April 2013
    These are great. I am 16 weeks with my second baby so 'popped' quite early - my bump is way too big for my normal clothes but i'm still too small for maternity. These have been a lifesaver as I was so uncomfortable! I am a size 8/10 and bought the smallest size - I use these folded over at the moment as they are still to baggy at the top for my bump, but they work well like that. They feel nice and secure as you can button them on and just look like an extra layer under your top. They look particularly good with jeans, not quite as good with smarter work trousers but still do a great job. I can see I am going to be able to use these well into my pregnancy - a good investment.
  • review score 0 Elizabeth Richardson on 04 April 2013
    This has already been so useful- I love the way the button hooks onto the button on your jeans so that the band can't wriggle free. It has allowed me to wear so many more outfits.
  • review score 0 Chloe on 04 April 2013
    I went for a small although normally a 10-12 and am finding the band a great help for keeping in my normal jeans. I do find that the band rides up at the back if I'm not careful, or of I'm walking around a lot so maybe a medium would have been better after all. Perhaps it's my shape and I'll grow into it! A great product though and I plan to get another colour than black too.

    I bought a maternity bandeau when I was pregnant with my first child, I used it again when pregnant with my second, and have just purchased one for my sister in law.
    So useful in those first months when you don't want to buy maternity clothes yet your normal clothes are a bit tight. Also great for later on and even after baby has been born. And can be used to hid your belly when breastfeeding

    Little bit big for me at 17 weeks but can see where good be useful so have decided to keep for when I grow into it.
  • review score 0 Rachel Dowling on 25 March 2013
    I'm currently 18 weeks pregnant and not yet at the point where I need maternity trousers. The bump bandeau is great for wearing over my regular trousers while I'm in the in-between stage. I usually wear a size 10 - 12 so ordered the small, it's very generous so maybe a little loose at the moment but I guess I'll grow into it!
  • review score 0 Caitriona O'Neill on 25 March 2013
    This is great to cover up the open zip on your existing jeans. The buttons are really badly sown on and came off on first wear, so it's useless as anything other than a coverup.
  • review score 0 Karen Ward on 31 January 2013
    I love this bump band. Because I can button my jeans to it I feel really secure walking around all day with my jeans 'undone'! They have never felt like they are going to fall down, and the band keeps my lower back nicely covered when I bend down. Buy a size smaller than you need though - I'm usually a UK 12 and the medium was far too big for me, but I exchanged it for a small with no hassle and this fits me fine.
  • review score 0 Emma Kerr on 29 January 2013
    I ordered the large initially as I am size 16 but it was far too big so I sent it back and ordered the medium. The medium is great and although it is still a little big it will grow with me. I LOVE the quality of material and it doesnt have seams. It also washes really well. I will plan on buying another.
  • review score 0 Abby on 24 January 2013
    Great item for that in between stage where normal clothes are too small and maternity clothes are too big. These are much better than a lot of bump bands out there as they have the button and button holes to attache them to your clothes. They are also nice and sturdy and well made unlike a lot of others I have come accross which are just flimsy.
  • review score 0 Catherine Gasston on 15 January 2013
    I bought two of these, one in black, the other navy. Apart from the navy one being a bit larger than the black (both medium), they're so handy. My pre-pregnancy clothes still fit, minus the waist not doing up, so with the bands I can still wear them. I've also been given some maternity clothes which are a shade too big but the bands make them wearable now. Really useful items, so pleased I bought them...a couple of other colours would be good e.g. Brown.
  • review score 0 Sally on 02 January 2013
    I've found this really useful, almost indespensible, as I'm at that 'in between' stage. I used the other reviews as a size guide and, being a clothes size 10-12, I agree that the small size is a good fit.
  • review score 0 Julie on 01 January 2013
    I ordered two bands in small. Good quality fabric but unfortunately had to return them as too loose at the top, despite being 26 weeks.
  • review score 0 L on 06 November 2012
    I bought my band about a month ago (I am now 18 weeks) and it has been great to make my jeans and work trousers that little bit more comfy, even though I am still not showing too much. the added warmth it provides is also good too. The buttons are useful to keep your trousers up, although i find the band is still a little too big for me (I am normally a size 10-12 but the medium was sold out at the time so bought a small) so I would recommend going a size down to get a good fit.

  • review score 0 fris on 17 October 2012
    Good as an extra layer to disguise that my tops keep riding up but my trousers still kept going south as I haven't got bigger on my hips. Great idea but hasn't been the best for me. Have now bought maternity jeans at 23 weeks (1st pregnancy) and might need old man braces as even these fit on the thighs but not hips.

    It is too big at 14 weeks but will be more useful in due course and its easy to use.
  • review score 0 London mom on 02 October 2012
    At 15 weeks (second pregnancy) I have quite a bump so am struggling to fit into my normal trousers, but not quite ready for maternity clothing yet. I have been using the bump band for about a week now. I have found it a little loose around the top (bump isn't that big yet) so tend to fold it over double, and it does well holding my trousers up. I am sure it will come into its own over the next few weeks.
  • review score 0 NY on 26 September 2012
    Still a little big for my bump at 17 weeks, but it's so easy to use I'm sure it will be very useful. Great item.
  • review score 0 Melanie on 26 September 2012
    I wish I'd known about these sooner! Really useful to use when your maternity trousers don't quite fit and your normal trousers don't fit either! I was a bit sad as the button came off not long after I bought it, so I would be careful when putting on and off again.
  • review score 0 samantha on 24 September 2012
    Love these bands. Really easy to use, comfortable and you can use them to keep your non-maternity jeans up (although just be wary the bottoms may sag a bit as the back of the bandeau does keep your jeans up). Definitely worth the money though as you don't need to get as many pairs of maternity jeans.

  • review score 0 michelle on 21 August 2012
    Great quality although I found the small to be a bit too big... The button holes were much too far apart and my jeans could barely reach them, creating a lumpy look. It works fine as a kind of belt thought I guess!
  • review score 0 Deb on 05 August 2012
    Other JoJo items are great as they do a size 8, when many other places don't. It would be lovely to see the bandeau in extra small. Having said that, I'm finding the small size fairly useful (have taken it in a bit) and definitely comfortable. Nice to see it is now available in navy
  • review score 0 Sarah Bradley on 03 August 2012
    I bought a size small just before I was 6 months pregnant and found it far too big around the upper part of my waist. Have returned as very disappointed that it didn't fit at this stage of my pregnancy when I would have found it very useful. Disappointing.
  • review score 0 amanda david on 02 August 2012
    Disappointed! The sizing was too big - i am normally a medium but had to send back for a small. However even the small is too big at the top, so is not tight against the skin, but folds down so you can see it through clothes - despite me being 6.5 months pregnant.

    Such a useful item, elongates the time you can spend in 'normal' trousers. Also much more comfortable than the cheaper lycra style as is made with cotton.
  • review score 0 Giselle on 20 June 2012
    I bought this in a hurry as I was running out of clothes to wear! I'm normally quite a petite size 8 and like my clothes to be tight fitting. Result: from about 12 weeks it was getting uncomfortable if not impossible to wear my normal trousers (and in particular my jeans). The band itself is just a wide piece of fabric, with three button holes in it. Two are quite close together and one a bit further on. The idea is that you put your trousers' own button through one of the holes, and use a nifty double-button to put through the other and your trousers' buttonhole, so you essentially can walk around with your trousers undone!
    The band is still a bit big for me I think, but will certainly be better fitting when I'm a bit larger. At the moment it works fine, I just scrunch it down a bit under my bump (only problem is my tops are also a tight fitting so there's not a smooth line anymore). All in all a good investment which means I can wear my normal clothes longer than I would be able to otherwise! Only thoughts of improvement would be if it had some kind of adjustable sizing, but this probably makes it too fiddly, or if the label sewn in could be removed or made much smaller as it affects the scrunchiness of the band (and is scratchy to boot)

    This is a really useful item. At 24 weeks I have been at that 'in between' stage where my usual clothes don't fit comfortably. The buttons on the band hook onto my trousers and have offered far more comfort and support. I wear it every day and am just about to place an order for a second one to use on days that it's in the wash.

    I'm a size 12/14 normally and ordered the medium. It's still a little large for my bump (I'm 18 weeks) but will be great in a few weeks. I love the button that means I can attach to my non maternity jeans and turn them into maternity ones!!
