My sister bought this girdle PNG-971 from ITA-Med when she was pregnant with her first baby. She absolutely raved about this pregnancy girdle and said she couldnt go to work without it on some days. She said that it supported her back and stomach and made walking around the plant nursery where she worked much easier. When she was done with it she insisted that I borrow it.
I never had much money to spend to make myself comfortable during my pregnancies and had never dreamed of a product that could reduce my back pain during pregnancy until I borrowed this from my sister. During my fourth pregnancy I was especially large, it was no wonder,- the baby weighed 9 pound 7 ounces when born. I was totally uncomfortable right from the start-- when the Doctor thought I would be having twins--I was so big. This maternity girdle was perfect in the beginning as it provided support to my stomach and reduced the lower back pain I was experiencing.
The Girdle expands by getting larger through the belly by velcro straps on each side. My problem was the leg holes did not expand and my thighs got quite huge in the later part of my pregnancy. This is when my stomach was the largest and could have used the girdle the most. The girdle fit in the stomach, but it no longer fit in the legs.
The girdle is available in three sizes, the size we had was a medium. I believe that a large may have been a better bet as far as size goes. In the beginning of any pregnancy you can never visualize just how big you can get--all over--ugh! I would highly advise getting the largest size, because you want to be able to wear it at the end of your pregnancy.
The overall comfort was nice for this girdle. It did not squeeze or bind the stomach (except around the legs as stated above). This is important because pregnant women know how uncomfortable it is to have something squeezing their stomach!
I would recommend this girdle to pregnant women!
