4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than No Support, February 19, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Gabrialla Elastic Maternity Belt, Medium Support (Health and Beauty)
I ordered the product in the beige color, and so far the color blends well under lighter colored shirts. The seams are fairly invisible under clothing. I wear this over a tank top, b/c I've noticed that the edges rub uncomfortably on my bare skin. So far I'm 31 wks along and was a pre-pregnacy sz. 6/8 5ft. 3in. 140lbs., I ordered the medium-despite the warnings about it running small-it fits right now but I'm not sure if it will last until weeks 40+; the velcro is connected by the last 1 in. of space and I'm at 170lbs. If my belly outgrows it before then, I won't purchase a new one b/c the cost is too steep for the level of support it provides. I'm a teacher and on my feet for a good portion of the work day; in the evenings I chase after my 2 1/2 yr. old child. I have previous spinal problems with bulging/herniated discs and pinched nerves in my lower lumbar spine. So far the brace has offered enough support to bring my pain level back to what I could obtain with Ibuprofen. When you live in a constant low level of pain, a minor relief is very helpful. I did not use a support belt with my first pregnancy and I'm on the fence as to if this product was worth the cost for the amount of relief it offers. I've only been using it for a few days, so hopefully the relief will increase as my spine adjusts to having the extra support.
