Testimonials & Reviews

Pros: - smart design - comfortable - clinically proven to provide back pain relief Cons: - extra layer in summer Design and Features The BellyBra is a bit like a sports bra but for your belly. It features a cross over back, stretch back panel and wide support band at the waist. It is made of a nylon spandex mix and comes in black, white and beige, sizes XS to XXXL (up to size US 22). Performance and Drawbacks The stretch panel on the back of the BellyBra is quite tight and strong. It gently pulls back your shoulders to reduce the strain of your growing belly on your back and improve your posture. The wide hip band is lower at the front to comfortably stretch over your belly. It is designed to take the pressure off your pelvis and redistribute the pregnancy weight to between your shoulders. The rest of the BellyBra is made from a lightweight fabric that's about the same thickness as a spandex singlet or undies. It has quite good non-wire bust support so you can wear it with or without a bra and it’s comfortable to wear to bed. It's primarily for use in the third trimester but you can wear it beforehand, especially if you are having twins. If there is an excess of fabric in the front you can tuck it into the waistband until you grow into it. The most important thing about the BellyBra is that Australian clinical trials have shown that it is effective in providing back pain relief during pregnancy and a reduction in the use of pain relief medication. You can't get a better endorsement of its effectiveness than that. Fertile Mind suggest you can wear the BellyBra as an outer garment and this would be very comfortable in summer but I'd say each to their own with this one, its a bit too underwear looking for me. Conclusion: The BellyBra gets its rating of 10 because it's been clinically proven as being effective in providing back pain relief, it comes in a good range of sizes and colour options and is the only product of it's type available. Approximately 50% of pregnant women experience back pain during pregnancy and most experience some sort of discomfort sleeping so any product that offers relief is worth it's weight in gold. About BellyBra: The BellyBra was invented by a US mom and is now recommended by many pregnancy specialists for the relief of back pain and bad posture caused by pregnancy.

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®?

Easy care and quick dry 82% Nylon 18% Spandex. 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.
