Pregnancy is truly a hard period in the life of a women. As the body is undergoing an extreme change in shape and size, it really needs structure and support to feel and look good. A Maternity belt or band could be your new best friend if you feel the need of a sturdy reinforcement.
During pregnancy as the size of the belly increases tremendously, your favourite clothes no longer fit but a belly band can help you slip into your favourite pair of jeans quite conveniently. Belly bands provide support, coverage and shape to the belly. Choosing the appropriate maternity belts and bands will provide your already tired body a moment of comfort in every situation.
During the second and third trimester of gestation, as the body is swelling and their is a lot of fluid retained in the body, you may feel like a rapidly expanding blimp. In this situation, leave your pants button undone and cover the gap created with a belly band, which will act like a fabric bridge.
Belly bands come in many layer options and provide extra warmth in winter season.
A belly band not only provides support but also provides coverage.
Maternity belts are heavy duty supporting materials that look almost similar to the belly bands.
Maternity belts give support to bulky and sagging belly and reduces the pain caused by the heavy abdominal muscles.
They come in different styles with adjustment systems that allow the belt to be resized easily according to the shape and structure of the belly.
This self adjustment system also reduces the lower back pain.
Rather than covering the entire belly, they come under the baby bump providing support from underneath, and look like a ‘belly bra’.
