I'd be really grateful if anyone could recommend any good brands of support belt?

I am looking for something which is not too bulky/brace-like?

Thanks :-)

I had a couple of these and they were pretty crap. But what was not crap was a giant bit of tubigrip (sp?) bandage that the hospital physio gave me when I saw her about pelvic/hip/lower back pain. Not pretty but very supportive!

Is it for general support or for exercise? I am using a Nexcare band for running which is still comfy and very supportive at 32 weeks - it might show under clothes though. I've also used a Karriwell Lycra bump band which is good for lighter support and I sometimes wear both to smooth out the bumps on the Nexcare. Both available on Ebay fairly reasonably.

Thanks guys - it is for running - wanted a fit splint or gabriella but cannot find them here and haven't got any other ideas... You find the Nexcare good for running Fruit? It doesn't rub/ride up?

I have found it great, it has an extra band over the top of the bump which is really helpful as you get bigger. It definitely stays put. Mine is flesh coloured so it is not the most attractive if your top rides up - I've bought some longer tops now!
