Choosing The Right Maternity Belt
Growing a baby is a rewarding, life-changing, and challenging experience. As your little one grows from the size of a pea to the size of a cucumber and beyond, you'll find your body under increasing strain. That's why choosing the right maternity belt is so important and one of the best investments you can make in your pregnancy wardrobe.

Not sure where to start or how to know what belt is right for you? We've made it easy for you. Read on for a breakdown of the best belts and how to choose your best fit.

What is a maternity belt?
Maternity belts are designed to take on the majority of your weight during pregnancy by lifting the weight off your back. They can be worn over or under the clothes and are ideal for those who work out throughout their pregnancy or constantly on their feet. They either hook or velcro and can often adjust in size as your pregnancy grows. You can also wear them after pregnancy for extra support.

What types of bands are available?
There are three main types: the single strap belt, the extra support belt that includes a strap across the top of the belt, and the full prenatal cradle, which spreads the weight across the back and shoulders for the ultimate support.

Some brands are one size fits all while others have different sizes based on how far along you are in your pregnancy. You will likely need to measure your hips with measuring tape to determine your best size. Make sure when you are trying on your belt it does not bind your belly too tightly or scratch you uncomfortably.
