I used the Target brand band while I was still wearing my regular jeans. I don't know if it's the shape of my butt/hips, but I spend more time yanking on the thing than anything because it rolls up all day long.
I still have one pair of work pants that has a lower belly band and my belly isn't quite big enough for it yet. I have to wear the band with those ones, still, and I dread it because it's annoying.
If you could get a belt to work, I can't imagine it would be very comfortable.
