Hi,

Do the stealth belts want to ride up on women with curvy / slightly curvy figures?

Thank you

From the feedback I've heard, this can be a problem for curvy women, but I hope that some actual users can share their feedback 👍

My waist is considerably smaller than my hips and I bought 3 different types, none worked because the top was inches out from my body.  I tried tilting the belt and attaching at an angle but the velcro was then misaligned.  :-(

Do you think it would be helpful if the entire back of the band has some kind of silicone to grip onto your skin? I think the problem is that we're talking about a belt that's under tension, but slippery at the same time - I think they need to be modified for different body types to work 100%.

I do agree with you that right now all belts are designed with one body type in mind.  I'm not sure about silicone sticking to skin. Perhaps but sounds a bit uncomfortable or problematic if one sweats? It seems there might be something about where the velcro is placed on the fabric so that someone can wrap it exactly as needed.  Fortunately for me (knock on wood), I've been ok with not using one, but I am very careful (ie although I'm very active I never lift anything heavy).
