Top 3 Pregnancy Support Belts in Japan

After trying on LOTS of maternity belly support belts in Akachan Honpo, here are my Top 3! I was surprised I actually fit into the Japanese belts, but some of them have quite long straps which is good. I had muscle separation from my first pregnancy, so needing extra support with this second baby:)

  1. Pigeon support belt
  2. Inujirushi lower back support belt
  3. Inujirushi cross-back belly support belt

Watch to the end of the video below to see the belt that I bought, including photos of me wearing it today at work:)!

    Hello Kate, could you recommend any Japanese brand of postpartum girdles for c section? I do think Japanese can make quality ones, but I find no info online. Thank you!
