Belly Bandit

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

Anyone actually use one of these before? I tried looking for reviews online but it's almost all stuff straight from their marketing department. Wondering if it really works????

I've been wondering the same thing! There's a cheaper version at BRU, but I also wondered if something snug would work just as well! I've got a Bellaband that I've worn throughout pregnancy, but I think it may be too stretchy to do anygood pp.

Brooke Burke (I think she was in Playboy and hosts some shows on E) got asked during an interview how she got her body back after pregnancy and she mentioned that she used one. I'm sure she also used a trainer, nanny, and personal chef, though.

I ordered one the other day! I had binding after my c/s last time and it helped a lot I think...or at least stopped the sensation that my guts were falling out. I'll let you know if it seems nice when I get it...

Aw, that's so sweet of you, LSU!!

I don't think this is a girdle, it's supposed to work differently somehow.

Definitely tell me what you think when you get it, Art.

My hospital gave me something similar after my csection. I wore it for weeks! I felt like my guts were going to spill out if I didn't have it on. I :hb: it!

I have been using the belly bandit for a week now and I first began to see a difference only hours after the first use. After a week the difference is incredible! I was initially skeptical that it would work very well but it does! I highly recommend it. Its not the most comfortable thing to wear, so I limit my usage to 3-4 hours per day. But even with that low usage I am seeing a huge difference!

I have heard that belly bandit is the preeminent maternity wrap, but there are others out there like stretched tight and belly bumps. Tell your experience? Please share.
