Hi, I got mine off ebay cost me around £10 with the postage. I had the belt type, it works marvelous when you stood up but you have to slacken it off when you sit down. I am currently expecting my 4th, due in 3 week and would not be without it. Hope this is of some help.

Hey - I had to get one, not so much for my back (although it has helped) but just for the weight of my belly! I am carrying all up front and by week 28 just could not cope any more!! Although they are not the greatest ASDA do maternity supports 2 for £8 which is good if you just want to try them out - that way if they dont work for you you dont waste a fortune, but if they do you can invest in some more sturdy ones!!

Good luck!

Hi!! Im about 30 weeks along and have got a girdle like thing for my belly! I go to these prenatal swim classes and the lady is a physio aswell!! I got it probably at your stage now, as I have been getting ligament pain in my groin (ah the joys!!) and well it has really really helped me! Now wear it everyday! Highly recommend it!!
