Is it Called Tummy Tape or tummytape?

The buzz around tummytape is real. After our viral TikTok, we’ve been getting a lot of questions about all things pregnancy tape. One of the most common confusions is the difference between “tummy tape” and tummytape. We’re happy to answer!

The Basics

First and foremost, tummytape is our unique brand of maternity tape. “Tummy tape” is a term for any kinesiology tape that is applied to the belly! Most of the time, tummy tapes are designed for relief from pregnancy pains and discomforts, but there are other niches that fit under the umbrella, such as post-partum supports. 

tummytape is our patented, easy to use, and effective support for pregnancy back pain, sciatica, swelling, and more common aches. Learn more about what makes tummytape unique now.

What’s in a Name?

As you might have guessed, there are two important parts of the terms: “tummy” and “tape”. Tummy is pretty self explanatory; you put it on your tummy/belly/abdomen, whichever term you prefer! The “tape” takes a little more explaining. Kinesiology tape is a thin strip of cotton fabric with a skin-safe adhesive. It’s most commonly used for sports injuries, but it also offers amazing relief for pregnant moms. Wondering how it works? Check out our blog!
