The body is just never the same after giving birth. I had no idea the changes I would go through. While I fully expected things like baby weight I didn’t realize how weak my muscles and specifically my back would feel. After you have a baby you need all the support you can get; both emotionally and physically.
While I’d heard of the postpartum belly band, I had no idea all the things that it could do for you. I assumed at first it was just to help you look skinny again! I had no idea the actual physical benefits.
First of all, this band from Mamaway was in the middle of the price range out there at $99. When it arrived I was impressed by the quality. It is solidly made and has thick, sturdy straps with velcro that really sticks!
The instructions said if you are less than four weeks post natal it’s best to lay down while putting on. I did a little demonstration following the instructions.
I was really impressed and surprised by the immediate support I felt while wearing it. Even better, it fits so tightly that you can wear underneath clothes without it being detected. I didn’t think that was possible but with any loose fitting top, it really disappears AND gives you that appearance of a thinner waist.
I’m really curious to see if it helps with weight loss by helping with circulation. After wearing it I can see how it’s possible.
The post natal belly band is really comfortable and well made. It will give great support to you after giving birth and in the months following as your body returns to normal!
– 12% Polyester, 48% Nylon, 20% Bamboo Charcoal, 20% Rubber
– Wear right after birth. Can be used straight after birth to first help with uterus and pelvis recovery, then used to tighten the abdominal area as well as back support, as you will be bending down constantly to pick up your baby. Perfectly safe for both natural and c-section. Wide enough to be a corset, soft enough to be a wrap and strong enough to give you back support.
– Triple Compression. Easy to use 3 step fastening feels secure and comfortably tight. Two extra compression belts to reinforce key recovery areas, giving you an immediate waist line.
– Comfortably tight. You can wear it all day, everyday, even during sleep. Designed to bend, twist and move with your body and won’t ride up, ever.
– Incredibly stretchy. Breathable Bamboo fibres form a rigid yet flexible material enabling easy, natural movements. Accelerate recovery with added infer-red to improve blood circulation.
– High quality, durable construction that will maintain its shape, wash after wash.
