Maternity Support Belt — The Bump

Maternity Support Belt

My OB told me last week that I was measuring at about 33 weeks, and I am definitely feeling it.  I still have 3 months left, and definitely will need some support.  For those of you that use the support belts, were they worth the purchase?  Just holding my belly up (I guess adding a little pressure) feels better.  I appreciate any advice as well.  Thanks!

  • Keep us posted on how it works out for you.  I bought one and ended up returning it - it wasn't comfortable.  But I'm not huge, I was just getting uncomfortable.  I find that tighter belly panels on pants help a lot, I may change my tune as
