Testimonials & Reviews
I am writing to give you my complete 'stamp of approval' for the BellyBra that I have had for 2 weeks now. I must say I was hesitant at first to get the bra because of the cost and the uncertainty of whether it would help me. In my last pregnancy (seven years ago) I was bed ridden from 18 weeks with a separated symphisis pubis and to get around I used a wheelchair or walking frame. 3 months before I fell pregnant this time I had fractured my sacrum and my back was still pretty tender, so that coupled with my previous pelvic problems I was a walking time bomb! At 27 weeks my lower back and pelvis started to ache so badly that by 4pm I had to sit down and rest for the rest of the evening, with 3 active boys this is near impossible. My sister told me about your product and after some convincing (as I really believed nothing would help) I tried the BellyBra. This has in all seriousness kept me upright! I had a huge 3 days last week, I went out to see a band, the next day a children's party and then the following day I spent 4 hours walking at a market, and I was still able to come home and cook dinner. I seriously would not have been up to doing one of those things 3 weeks ago, I am so surprised at the difference it has made, I am a real convert, it has changed the way the next couple of months are going to be for me. I am more than delighted, I just hope you get it into the mainstream very soon to help others like me, I seriously couldn't recommend it highly enough. Thank you and congratulations on getting your hands on this bra, it truly has helped me so much.

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.
