Medela® Maternity Support Belt
Dug in :(
In theory this is a great product but it's not well executed in this particular one. The inside edge dug into my skin, became itchy, irritated and left a mark after 20 minutes of use. I tried wearing it over clothes but it still dug in through the layers.

Least Impressive of Three I Tried
I am expecting sometime late next month. I've tried three different maternity belts: the Medela (this one), one I cannot name because doing so would require me naming a competing website, and the Prenatal Cradle. The Prenatal Cradle was by far the best, the Medela by far the worst, with the unnamed one falling somewhere in-between.

Used for long shifts - works great!
Very helpful for long shifts on my feet. Best to use over a tank - velcro edges can feel scratchy on skin.

Decent, but not the best.
By the time I was about five months along, I realized that I needed to give my back a break and try one of these support belts. I was disappointed in this belt because once I put it on, it seemed like it barely lifted my belly and didn't really do much for my back. However, I gave it three stars because it could very well work for someone who is very petite. I myself am about average build, but have been carrying fairly low, while protruding quite a bit. For me, I needed a belt that was wider and offered more support to my back. It's worth a shot if you only need light support.
