Great for adding an inch!

I purchased a men’s parka as it has longer sleeves and broad shoulders, better for my inverted triangle body type. However, I struggles to zip it over my hips and was looking for a simple way to add an inch without resorting to sewing and modifying it. This worked well, slid over both zip sections fine, and gave me that extra inch so I can zip over my hips / so definitely has non-pregnancy uses out there. Now to wait for winter to test it out!

Best purchase ever!

I've been one of the majority who have gained some weight over the pandemic years. My coat became very snug, barely able to close. I had debated to get a new coat, but I really love my Canada Goose which I had invested in nearly 10 years ago. Lo and behold! I came upon the adapter panel from Make My Belly Fit. It gave me a couple of extra inches to allow my coat to fully zip up! It's surprisingly easy to attach too. I have been recommending this to many others whose coats have too become snug. Thank you for this!

Great customer service

I am super happy with the MakeMyBellyFit universal adapter. I emailed to confirm a few things and was super impressed with the quick responses and fantastic customer service. Used the adapter this weekend on a hike and worked well! I would easily recommend this product to other parents!
