It does give support to my belly and back, I'm 6 months pregnant and this belt has helped relieve my back pain and it helps a lot when walking out my dog, cleaning the house, etc.
I am almost 27 weeks pregnant with twins and needed added support to give my legs, feet, and back relief.
I am currently 34 weeks pregnant with baby #2, have high amniotic fluid which means my belly is very heavy, but have gained just 7-15 lbs this pregnancy so far.
I wore it a few times and always ended up taking it off few hours later as I t was not comfortable and didn't seem to help much Did not help take the pressure off my pelvic area and just put more stress on my lower back and made it sore.
(For what's it's worth I'm a Doctor of Physical Therapy who's experienced lots of low back pain (muscular) and SI issues...the other SI belt is more effective.)
I ordered the mini cradle size small because I am carrying very low and have a lot of pain in my pelvic area and lower back.
The Mini Cradle by It's You Babe is a great product for every pregnant mom.

We use 3 sets of hook and eye closures to provide a perfect fit that will not snag clothing and allows the product to remain smooth and flexible against the skin at the point of closure. So effective and comfortable you’ll forget you have it on!
