Hi Tamra

I asked one of our experts, and neither of us have heard of using one of those bands if you aren't pregnant. I don't see any reason why you couldn't try it. Maybe it will give you a little additional support that you're looking for.

Good luck!

I'm morbidly obese (260lbs, 5'7") and I have been working out almost everyday since January 2nd. For the last few weeks I've added Zumba for the Wii to my routine. When I get 1/2 way through the routine and the beats pick up speed, I notice that my low belly fat (that hangs down into my groin area) bounces quite a bit and causes me pain. Enough where I slow down and don't keep up with the instructor. I'd like to work out at the higher pace but i'm concerned about pulling something in my stomach or groin.
I know they have belly bands for pregnant people. Has anyone overweight tried using one of them without being pregnant? I do wear compressed capri workout pants and was hoping that would help but it hasn't.
