Every time that I see the same question being asked over and over again in my Facebook group of NYC Moms and other forums, I think I really should write a blog post about this.... I see people asking for recommendations for pregnancy support belts and leggings, and post-partum wraps constantly, so I thought I'd compile the results of the moms' favorites!

You will see that Belly Bandit comes up a lot! Belly Bandit products are available at BellyBandit.com, Nordstrom, and Amazon. For a limited time, you will receive 10% off BellyBandit products when you shop through this link (excludes Bundles, final sale, gift cards, and basq NYC products). For more exclusive discounts, check out this blog post.
Absent a discount, I recommend purchasing at Nordstrom as their return policy is extremely liberal (so if you wear it once and it's uncomfortable for you, you can send it back)
Pregnancy Support Belts
I never wore a pregnancy support belt, but these have been recommended over and over by my friends and group members. I did, however, wear leggings with some support (see below).
This is another popular support belt. It's a #1 best seller on Amazon and very reasonably priced. This one is one size fits all.
I lived in these pants, I even wore them to the hospital at go time!!! They gave me just the right amount of belly and back support and felt more like super comfortable pants than leggings (face it, you want to wear leggings but not be obvious about it). They even have cute zipper detailing at the ankle. I like that the front comes up high and the back looks like normal pants. Most importantly, I didn't need to constantly pull them up as I did with other maternity pants.
These leggings have a cult following.
These leggings seem to be very similar to the first pair that I linked above but are much less expensive. It looks like they have the same cut but lack the zipper detailing.
Did I miss any of your favorites?
