Once your bump starts growing it can be helpful to wear a support belt. Your growing bump can add pressure to your back, shift your balance and just generally put added pressure on your body.
I was recently sent the Cantaloop Pregnancy Support Belt to try out. I will admit that in my first two pregnancies I never used a support belt of any type. I honestly didn't feel the need. This time around my stomach muscles aren't what they used to be. My body is stretching out for the third time and sometimes a little support can do wonders.
Right now I am in the last few weeks of the second trimester and my bump is growing bigger daily. I feel like as I get bigger I may want/need some additional support, especially while running around after a 4 and 2 year old. My back is already feeling the added pressure.
One thing I love about the Cantaloop Pregnancy support belt is that you can't tell when you're wearing it. In the above picture you would never guess that I was wearing anything but my regular clothes. I love that you can hide it underneath your clothes. It is discreet but provides wonderful support.
The belt itself is very comfortable. You might not want to wear it if the weather was really hot as pregnancy women tend to get really hot anyway but in England we don't really have to worry about the heat that much. It has in-woven support with smooth sides for that added support. It goes underneath your bump and then around your back to help support where you need it most.
The belt is also stretchy so will grow with your bump. It is available in a few different sizes so there will be a perfect one for you. I'm wearing the small and still have plenty of growing room left. I can't wait to try it out in the third trimester!
Have you tried a pregnancy support band/belt?
