Why Use a Pelvic Support Belt While Pregnant?
A pelvic support belt can provide better comfort while you carry your baby in your belly. The growing weight from your baby will create an increase in pressure on the lower portions of your body, possibly causing pain in the pelvic area. Luckily, products like the V sling are designed to help ease symptoms such as pelvic girdle pain, pelvic floor “heaviness,” uterine prolapse, and more.
Some people experience vulvar varicosities or vaginal varicosities when pregnant; wearing a pelvic support band may help ease the symptoms of varicosities during pregnancy by easing pressure from the area. Having essential pelvic support during pregnancy can help with other symptoms of pregnancy such as inguinal or femoral hernias, and lack of mobility from pressure or pain.
The bands of the V Sling help distribute weight more evenly, apply gentle pressure to your pelvic area, and relieve strained muscles. Although not necessarily designed for back pain, you may experience relief from back pain as well, as the pressure is eased from your lower body and more support is gained overall.
The Belly Bandit V Sling for Comfort and Ease
The V sling is very easy to wear; simply wrap the band around your hips, attach the two slings to the front (2-3 inches apart from each other), crisscross the two slings, pull them through the legs, and attach to the back portion of the band. Adjust for desired support or fit!
You can start wearing the V Sling whenever you feel the need for support or pain relief; or wear it early in the pregnancy to help prevent pelvic pain.
The V Sling pelvic support belt has 2 sizes to choose from. Be sure to choose the right size pelvic support band for the best results and comfort:
- Size 1 fits 0-8 (XS – M)
- Size 2 fits 10-18 (L – XL)
For maximum comfort, the V Sling is made from nylon on the outer layer, and a fabric called neoprene for the inner layer (neoprene is a safe-to-wear synthetic rubber that allows for flexibility). Thanks to this design, this pelvic support belt is comfortable enough to wearing during the day or while sleeping.
For care or maintenance, simply wash by hand and lay flat to dry (do not iron or bleach).
