I just wanted to say thank you to you and your team for the Smileybelt I ordered.
I was very sceptical when ordering it as I couldn't understand how a belt could offer so much relief. After wearing it for a few days I couldn't believe the relief the belt gave my lower back. Before this I would be near to tears at night after running around after my toddler all day and finding it difficult to lift her. I cannot thank you enough as it has changed my whole pregnancy.by Kamini, Dunedin
Thank you, thank you, thank you - your Smiley Belt is fantastic
I received my Smiley Belt last week and have lived in it ever since. The all day relief the belt provides is incredible. I can even get down on the floor and play with my two children. I hope you don’t mind but I have passed on your pamphlet to my midwife who was very impressed with your product. She has in all her years experience, never seen such a great support for pregnant or after birth women to wear.by Gretchen, Taupo
I just wanted to say thank you so much for this wonderful product
I ordered and paid for my Smiley Belt on Wednesday afternoon and was stunned when I came home an hour later and it was already here*. Thank you so much, it is such a relief. Within an hour of putting it on I noticed all my pain had lessened and it has just been an absolute miracle over the past two days.
I only wish I had found out about the Smiley Belt weeks ago. I can now play with my daughter and pick her up without grimmacing in pain. I will recommend it to everyone.
Thank you so muchby Kate, Torbay
Can feel the difference already
I received my belt this morning and I just wanted to say I have only been wearing it for an hour and I can feel the difference already! Thank you!!!by Nicole
Thank you for creating such a brilliant product
My life has changed in a matter of minutes. It's much easier to get down on the floor with my toddler and walking around is almost normal again. I wish I had discovered your product sooner. I definitely recommend this to everybody. Thank you also for packaging it so nicely, what a nice touch. I hope your business does well, you deserve it.by Rebecca Sandringham
The Smiley Belt enabled me to walk again..
Thought I would write to say the Smiley Belt enabled me to walk again without pelvic pain. I was pregnant with twins and put on bed rest at 18 weeks because I had dreadful pelvic pain and was unable to walk comfortably. This belt enabled me to walk from the car to my hospital appointments and around the home. My physio at the hospital lent me this belt and I am so glad she did!by Thanks. Yvette.
These belts should be in every midwife's toolkit - it is such a relief to have the weight lifted! Thanks againby Jennie, Levin
Many thanks! This has been brilliant.
I can actually roll over in bed now without screaming. I only wish someone had told me about the Smiley Belt 10 weeks ago.by Sue, Auckland
The belt has been great for my patient - I am sure I will be ordering more.by Jeanette, Whitianga
I just wanted to tell you how amazing your product is!!! I am 30 weeks pregnant and was so sore I could hardly walk into my physio today. I walked out with the belt on and no pain!! I couldn't believe it and the name is so true because I have been smiling ever since. Thank you so much for your amazing product xxxxby Kelly
Thank you !! I have recieved my smiley belt today and already the difference it has made to my pelvic pain is amazing. I took it for my usual daily walk and have spent a few hours working in the kitchen, and feel so much more comfortable. I am only 18 weeks pregnant but have been having pelvic pain since 7 weeks. I imagine it would have only gotten worse in the months to come, so I am over joyed that I was recommended this product. Thanks.by Jenny K
My Smileybelt was delivered by Courier Post at 12pm. Fits well and very pleased with the product and happy to recommennd to others. Tremendous service by yourself, and CourierPost are the best, I use them all the time. Many thanks.by Elliot
At 31 weeks, my Smiley Belt has become my lifeline. It means I can still get to work, and do things around the house without being in so much pain. Thank you so much!by Michelle
Hi, Just wanted to let you know my belt arrived this afternoon and I put it straight on. What a difference!! Thank you.by Maree
I have many clients from all walks of life and occupations with lower back pain to whom I have recommended the use of a Smileybelt.
The point of difference with these low back support belts I feel, is that they support but do not hinder movement so you can still carry out normal everyday activities with greater ease.
The belts are shaped in the front which means they dont dig in when bending forward and they are light and easy to fit and wear.
Regular and enthusiastic comments from clients about the Smieybelts are 'invaluable' 'fantastic' 'my friend' 'great' 'wish I had one of these sooner' 'my sister needs one of these' & 'I will tell others about these'.
by Sally Woodham / Physiotherapist NZIR @ Village Physiotherapy
I only became aware of the Smileybelt through my mother who recently meet you at a gathering in havelock North (my hometown). She insisted that I check it out and order one. I don't normally have back issues but I am amazed at how much support I get from that belt. I am 28 weeks pregnant with baby number 3 and frequently pick up my two other children (3 years and 22months) therefore I really do need something to give me extra support. I am now forever suggesting to other mothers that this is the belt they need! Thanks again for an awesome product :)by Monique
I am 6 months pregnant and for the past two weeks I have been having severe hip joint pain to the point that I cant walk, bend or turn without screaming pain. Physio recommended this belt and it is the best $58.00 I have ever spent.
Day 1 - pain greatly reduced. Day 2 - I can actually use the hurting side to walk. Day 3 - I can sit up from bed without much pain. Day 4 - I can walk the dog. Day 5 - as long as I am not lifting heavy things, bending quickly, I feel normal. Highly recommended!by Loretta
Just wanted to say thank you so much for such an awesome product! And such prompt delivery! Wish I had this a lot sooner. I'm 31 weeks pregnant and have been getting quite bad pelvic pain. I'm definitely smiling now, the difference was instantaneous! Thanks again, I'll definitely be recommending this product :)by Lynlee
Wow, not only a fantastic product which provides my wife with support to take the weight of the baby she is carrying off her pelvis, also incredible customer service! We paid by internet banking last night thinking we would receive the Smileybelt a couple of days later and then got a knock at the front door this morning from the courier droping it off! Thank you so much:-)by Joseph
I just wanted to let you know I purchased your product about 10 days ago after I was advised that the pain I had been experiencing during pregnancy was SPD and the physio I saw recommended your belt.
I have an acticve job managing a group exercise programme for a University and had found work was becoming very painful. In particular training clients where I would be standing for long periods. I am now 30 weeks and have had this pain since 22 weeks (it has taken a while to figure out exactly what is was!).
Your belt has doubled the time I can spend on my feet. I was beginning to wonder if I would be able to work and teach right the way up a few weeks ago, as I was finding my window of opportunity on my feet was becoming smaller and smaller each week. The swelling is still there but it has gone down, and I am no longer icing my groin inbetween clients and classes and I am able to last the day at work.
Thank you, your product helped me feel confident I can continue to work in an active field until delivery. It has made a significant difference in a short space of time.by Anna
This is my second Smileybelt! I gave the first one away as I thought that pregnancy (my third) would be the last. It saved my ass... literally.
I suffered from SPD with my second baby starting at 36 weeks and got through it with chiropractic care and ice.
When that familiar burn began with baby number 3 at 26 weeks, I didnt hesitate. I ordered the Smileybelt and it made SUCH a difference.
Here I am pregnant with baby #4 and at 16 weeks, that belt was the first thing on my "second trimester To-Do-List".
As a doula and childbirth educator, I have sent many moms your way!by Kate
After months of sleepless nights due to lower back pain, and the trying of various maternity pillows, extra long pillows, and belly wedges, I finally tried a Smileybelt upon the recommendation of a physiotherapist and my midwife. Now in my third trimester, I have been having the best sleeps of my pregnancy; I have been waking less, experiencing no back pain, and am quickly able to get back to sleep due to the support that my Smileybelt gives me. Highly recommended. Thank you so much Smileybelt! ??by Aimee
I received my Smileybelt today after ordering on Wednesday following a recommendation from a colleague who's wife had one. It is amazing! I tried it on straight away and noticed the difference in reducing the pressure and pain I had been experiencing at 34weeks.
I wish I had known about it sooner. Will definitely recommend it to my pregnant friends. Ididn't even realise how much it was affecting me until I put the belt on and the irritation was gone.
Thanks for the great service and product.by Aimee G
Hi Guys, seems I owe you an apology! After years and years of back trouble/pain and all the rest that goes with it, my Chiropractor suggested I get a Smileybelt, which I did. But I looked at it and decided it would do nothing for me. What a Dick, I sent it back.
I have recently changed jobs and am now in building, so he suggested I get a belt, again. This time I ordered it, tried it on and I love it. There is NO WAY I could do what I do everyday without back trouble but with your Smileybelt I am freaking Smiling. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU - why did I send it back the first time with out trying it on. I highly recommend this belt.by Cher
Today I wore my Smiley ALL DAY .... and the pain has been reduced. Thank you for such a brilliant product.by Natasha
So impressed with the Smileybelt you sent me recently ( instant relief, longer exercise time, reduced tiredness at the end of the day and better sleep) that I want to buy another so I can alternate them when one is washed. Thank you.by Penelope
Hi Guys, I received my Smileybelt first thing this morning! what an awesome service, I wasn't expecting it so quickly. I have already put it on and it feels great. Thank you so much. It will be a big help while I am carrying my 14 month toddler around!by Rachel
Thank you so much for my very own Smileybelt! After borrowing a friend's Smileybelt for my first pregnancy, I knew the relief that I was able to get from using the belt for both the back and the belly support. I love my Smileybelt and have recommended it to others too. I was also so impressed with the exceptional customer service and prompt response I received from the team. Thank you again.by Belinda
No more pressure or pain....

I can't recommend the Smileybelt enough. I am a nurse and work 8 1/2 hour days on my feet - there is no sitting down in my job. I was getting R groin pain due to ligament stretching and that burning pain was distracting! My midwife recommended the smileybelt and I have worn it everyday since - a few hours without it and these pesky ligement pains are back. it's amazing! I have no trouble even at nearly 30 weeks with my shifts due to wearing it. Also helps at night with back pain as my body adjusts to the growth each time.
I highly recommend it! Thank you for your great product.by Erin
Thank you so much, it was waiting for me when I got home and I put it on straight away. Within the first hour it had already cut discomfort and pain down noticeably! Now where I had constant pain I now have a slight discomfort at the end of the day at the worst. I can't believe something so simple and affordable could make this much of a difference. I just wish I had found you sooner!by Angie
Thank you so much for this, it arrived first thing yesterday morning! Last night was the first night in weeks that I didn’t have pelvic pain when I changed position in bed, will definitely recommend this to my friends!by Hayley, Hamilton NZ
I received my belt about 2weeks ago, that day was quite a full on day at work and I came home to it. I put it on and instantly felt relief.
I have worn it ever since then, for work, the gym and for everyday living and I would not have it any other way.
The smiley belt has by far exceeded my expectations, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.by Megan
Many thanks for the speedy efficient delivery of my Smiley Belt. I had agonised for several months whether to get one or not. I am pretty slim in build and carrying a big bubs and big bump accordingly. I am a large animal veterinarian with a very active physical job wrestling/wrangling cattle, sheep and deer etc up until 34 weeks, slogging around in knee deep mud on farms etc. In retrospect - i wish i had ordered my Smiley Belt much sooner. Given my small stature and physical work i have diastasis rectis abdominus - some splitting and spreading of the tissue plane between my abdominal muscles (realistically this occurs for approx 30% of women). The Smiley Belt provides excellent support worn wide side with logo to the front like a "belly bra" - especially when lifting firewood or washing hampers etc. I would strongly reccommend this as a useful support mechanism where appropriate, for very fit active women - especially in the rural sector. I would encourage ladies to take the time for an accurate measurement as the fitting instructions on the website are very easy to follow and good. I am on the cusp of XS to S and chose a small (since i am still growing for a few more weeks yet! :-)) but was erroneously told to "make do" with a size medium by a well meaning physiotherapist - who simply didn't have any smaller sizes available. Please don't simply "make do" Smiley Belt are very good at exchanging sizes if required. And if you get one of these through a physiotherapist - please encourage them to get the sizing correct - it makes the world of difference. All the best in your journey :-)by Dr Urthe Engel, BVSc. Blenheim.
16 weeks into my first pregnancy, with previous back injuries, I started to struggle with vacuuming, stairs and my desk job - and worried about how it would be in a few months time when I am bigger. Describing my symptoms of pain to my midwife, she immediately suggested the Smiley Belt. I laughed and asked if that was 'really' called ... and a few days into wearing my Smiley Belt it lives up to its name! I am resuming my normal gait, feeling less strain in the back of my thigh. I appreciate not just the quality of this product but also the care and generosity with which Julia runs her business, evident when I sent her an email enquiry and received a phone call from her not long afterwards - and the product the very next day! Thanks Christine for the great work you began and Julia, for progressing this.by Melanie, Auckland
