Anyone know where I can buy the above from. Ive tried mothercare and boots but they dont stock them. My bump aches if I stand up for too long and thought a support belt may help.

Have a look at JoJo Maman Bebe or Blooming Marvellous . Hope the second link works - I can't get the site up ATM. I had a Reenie support belt which I thought was great. I bought a medium and am normally a size 10 but by the end it was too small though, so I'd recommend getting a bigger size than you'd normally go for.

I got one from Blooming Marvellous when pg with my twins and it really helped. Hope they still stock them.

The velcro fastening on mine kept giving me an inadvertant bikini wax

Someone suggested to me when I had this problem that I went to the GP and got her to refer me to the obstetric physiotherapist. The physio gave me (i.e. free!!) a huge tubigrip which went round my bump and supported it. It was very useful actually as I'd already tried on one of those support belts in Blooming Marvellous and found it didn't help.
The only problem was that it was really hot.(this was last summer though!)
