Maternity band

Has anyone tried a maternity band/belt/girtle?  Any suggestions?  I feel like I could use some extra support and I keep pulling a muscle just below my ribs and am hoping that would help some.  What brands are good?  I'd like something not outrageously expensive.  Under $40 would be great.

I have this one... I got it at Motherhood Maternity for $38.99.  I have a major back injury and the weight of the belly was causing a lot of problems.  My dr. told me to try one.  It has helped a lot, My lower back pain and cramping under the belly is better when I wear it.  GL Mama!!!

P.s.  I don't wear the top band over the belly.  It can be worn under your clothes.

I can not say enough about belly bras!! I got one when the belly belt's failed during my first pregnancy 16 years ago.. they are $29 each and are a bra also.. they were originally made for women to work out while preggers but now women wear them all the time.

i got one from motherhood maternity.  however, it only came in one size and i found it squeezed me a little too tight...and i would be considered thin.  so i ended up not really wearing it.

So I just got my support in the mail.  It is wonderful!  I can already tell a difference.  I can't wait to see how much better work is tomorrow with it.

Is there a Mimi Maternaty or Motherhood at your mall?  i got belly bands for $15 each there....I like them because they give support but don't like the feel so i just pull them over the tank top I have on under my shirt!  I also saw belly bands at Target in their maternaty section! Hope that helps! :)

I always wanted to try one but never did. I hope you find a good one!
