Testimonials & Reviews
This is my first pregnancy and I've been fortunate as I've had a drean run all the way through, but 2 weeks ago at 25 weeks I suddently developed an ache in my lower abdomen that started as a twinge in the morning, but by evening I'm dealing with a constant dull pain, I find it nearly impossible to bend over and when changing from sitting to standing I would be bent at the waist in pain until things adjusted. My doctor told me it's the muscles stretching & it's not common in a first pregnancy but it can happen, but that if the pain gets too severe I should take a Panadol. I had heard about the BellyBra (I already own a treasured BellyBelt) and I decided to try that as even before I became pregnant I've always preferred not to take any form of painkillers.
Well, before I purchased the BellyBra yesterday I had been hobbling around the shopping centre trying to get things done & feeling the pain get gradually worse. I tried on the BellyBra and decided I was wearing it immediately as I could feel an instantaneous improvement in my posture, I've had lower back pain before and whilst I've not had it yet during this pregnancy, I'm hoping tp avoid it. For the first time in 2 weeks the pain didn't get worse as the day went on, it got better until by last night all I felt was the occasional twinge if I moved too quickly. I had energy again to do things around the house instead of wanting to curl up in the couch feeling miserable.
It was the best money I have ever spent. This happened for me in less than 12 hours and if I hadn't experienced it for myself & probably would have been a bit dubious. I had a peaceful sleep last nigh, none of my usual tossing and turning trying to get comfortable & no leg cramps either!
I can't thank you enough Christine, you have changed my life! I am going to purchase another one in white and I will recommend the BellyBra to anyone that experiences pain similar to what I have. After such a lovely 6 months, I was starting to dread the final 3 months of pregnancy because I knew the pain would get worse as bubba getts bigger, but now I feel like dancing!

How do I choose my size?
BellyBra® maternity support is designed to fit snugly, but should not be tight nor constrictive. Choose your normal size using the table below (we've allowed for some breast and lots of tummy expansion!) but if you have put on a lot of weight, particularly in your maternity bra size, go up to the next size. The sizing chart below is based on your pregnancy bra size or pre-pregnancy t-shirt size if your frame has stayed the same, because the tummy part of BellyBra®is so stretchy.
*Please Note: if you believe that your hip measurement is above average to your bra sizing, please consider the next size up. Please call if you would like further advice, 1800 757 777 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 1800 757 777 end_of_the_skype_highlighting.

How do I look after my BellyBra®?
Simply treat it as you would a swimsuit or leotard. Hand wash and dry in the shade. Luckily it dries quickly, because you won't want to be without it for long! Or buy two BellyBra® maternity support garments!
Isn't it too hot to wear?
BellyBra® maternity support is as light as a one-piece swimsuit. It is a one piece stretchy garment that can be worn as outer or underwear. Too revealing for you? We suggest wearing an open cotton shirt over it on hot days.
Is it outer or underwear?
It's up to you! If you prefer wearing a bra, the straps will be seen, so it may be best to cover with a top. Designed for support, the back of BellyBra® maternity support is slightly higher than a normal tank-top or t-shirt, so you will feel a little more exposed than if you were wearing a top.
*According to orthopedic surgeon Harry Lockstadt from Spine Universe (www.spineuniverse.com) every second pregnant woman will experience back pain during the last trimester (the final 10 weeks of her pregnancy.)
"It is believed that hormones cause change at the insertion point of ligaments to the bone. A higher concentration of ligaments in the lower spine may suggest the cause for a higher incidence of back pain in the (second or third time) mother who has had more exposure to hormonal influences," says Mr Lockstadt.
BellyBra was selected as a "Feel Better Gadget" by the editors of the Bump special edition of Women's Health Magazine, October 2011.
